Default SportingNews.com Ranks McDaniels the worst HC!!!

32. Josh McDaniels, Broncos. No head coach, especially a rookie, makes his mark by trading away the franchise quarterback. McDaniels is already off on the wrong foot.

He's really making an impression on the media and fans...

They ranked all the new young coaches at the bottom. I mean, they should have given incompletes to new hires. Seriously shoddy.

Well, the verdict is in, we may as well fire him and hire someone else since we have the worst HC we can't get any worse.

But we could end up hiring the 33rd best coach...

FURTHERMORE, they have Marshall listed as the 17th best receiver (has this been discussed?)

Rex Ryan hasn't either (he's above Mangini).

How can you rank him at all?

Exactly. Yes, the franchise QB is gone, and very little has been done to shore up this horrible defense. So #32 is correct for now, but he'll shoot up the ladder once the guys learn the offense and get on the field.

Eevn though it may be a basically accurate ranking, it's not at all fair. Jay mostly caused his own departure, and McD has the right to break down his new team and build it as he sees fit. We're barely five months in, no need to panic.

Totally right! I mean the secondary, the scheme, the linebackers are totally all the same!

Dude, I didn't say they weren't different, I just said he did very little to shore it up. What he did was sign a bunch of old and older free agents. And free agents who've never played much like Fields and McBean.

He did draft a DE and a CB, both of whom have sky-high ceilings, but they're just rookies after all.

Well Ryan hasn't done anything crazy yet either. I don't think they can be ranked, but if you WERE ranking them, somebody has to be last...it figures a rookie and one making controversial decisions would wind up ranked last.

Or behind? Your logic only works one way, and it's usually skewed toward the point you're trying to make. No one can say he is good or bad and so the only acceptable grade is "incomplete". Certainly ranking him dead last isn't warranted because he hasn't coached a game. Even if every single move he made in terms of personnel blows up in his face (unlikely) then those flaws should be counted against his abilities as a GM and not as a coach. To this point he was one of the best coordinators in the league. He was a better coordinator than several of the 31 guys ranked ahead of him.

As a head coach he is an unknown so ranking him at the bottom of the league is as stupid as ranking him at the top.

technically we can't argue with how good or bad a coach he migh be. 32ns is a little harsh but fair this offseason.

i mean he did trade away a pro bowler(whether or not his fault don't know or care anymore) and has an uncertain situation at QB now, when that was one of the biggest slling points of coaching in Denver.

he has never coached before

he is very young

and in the eyes of many had a very questionable draft(i personally like it, he didn't reach on players simply because they played an area of need, but took players who will contribute and make the team better)

next offseason's rankings will be the more important rankings for how good or bad he is.
