    Worst 50 NFL Head Coaches of All Time

    I stumbled across this article listing the worst 50 head coaches ever in the NFL.

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/8...es-of-all-time

    The most surprising thing is only one Bengal made the list. Only one! Dave Shula stumbled in at #33 and they couldn't even find a picture of him!

    Actually I think more Bengals are deserving like Homer Rice, Dick LeBeau and maybe even Tiger Johnson and Bruce Coslet. Heck they even threw in Joe Gibbs because of his last stint as Redskins coach. If they are judging stints rather than a whole career then I think they ought to include Belichick's first go at it with Cleveland.

    So what do you think? Did our Bengals get stiffed here? I think we deserve a better representation on that list

    I see your Bruce Coslet and raise you Novel Turner. I have never seen a guy get more chances and prove to be mediocre and still be respected as a head coach option.

    And the Raider representation on this list is a joke Art Shell is much worse than that 23ish rating. No mention of a bunch of guys who should be (pretty much any coach the Raiders have hired since Madden/Flores era, sans Cable and Gruden).

    I think you linked an advertisement by mistake. How to refinance my mortgage was the only thing I saw.

    And although it was not the Second Coming we Skins fans had hoped for, the team still made the playoffs in 2 of the 4 years of Gibbs II. His inclusion on this list is pretty dumb. Zorn and Spurrier I can't argue with though.

    I would add this guy to the list but he has a Super Bowl to his name. For my money Brian Billick got less out of more than any coach I can remember. He also drafted, develop, molded, and stuck with Kyle Boller.

    I once heard Billick proclaim himself, during a press conference, to be an offensive guru.

    After hearing him call himself that, I paid more attention to Baltimore's offense.

    It stunk.

    And the Kyle Boller project speaks volumes too.

    Enuff said about Billick.

    I'm surprised Scott Linehan wasn't on the list. He took a Rams team that was a dominant team to the dumps with horrible draft choices and bad decisions. His players hated him and was totally incompetent.

    Les Steckel has to be one of the worst of all time. In less than a season he single handily destroyed what Bud Grant had established with the Vikings. The Vikings had to bring Grant back for a short time after they fired Steckel just to stabilize things with the players.

    It seems like it was written by young punks due to it being top heavy with recent head coaches. I'm thinking they haven't even heard of Homer Rice

    Cam Cameron being the worst coach kinda summed it up for me. Granted, he did go 1-15 in his only season, but everybody picked the Dolphins to do poorly that season anyways and his fate was sealed when Parcells was hired.

    I would agree too with Joe Gibbs second coming. If thats the case then Belichick's time in Cleveland deserves a nod. Or Dennis Green with the Cardinals.
