Last summer it seemed as if the summer of 2012 trend was to rank quarterbacks.
They were sized up and then squared off against each other in what appeared to be every possible quantitative category—size, speed, throwing strength and hair length (just kidding, although Robert Griffin III would take that by a landslide margin like this run by the man himself.)
Now the same is happening this summer—expect it’s the coaches’ turn.
Just a few weeks back head coach Mike Shanahan graded out as the No. 19 coach all-time in league history by ESPN.
Now NFL.com has joined in on the shenanigans (not to be confused with Shanahanigans).
NFL.com’s Elliot Harrison ranks Shanahan as the No. 8 coach in the league right now stating that he deserves his due credit for having a Super Bowl ring on each hand, or both on one depending on what he fancies most.
Now I know you might be thinking “There must be a lot of greats from the ESPN list for Shanahan to only be eighth” but that’s actually not the case.
At the time of this blog’s publishing only one other active head coach is on ESPN’s list (New England’s Bill Belichick at No. 7).
In fact, Shanahan isn’t even the highest ranked coach in the division—Tom Coughlin sits at No. 4.
No matter the rankings though, expect the two multiple-winning Super Bowl coaches to be on the sidelines together fighting for an NFC East title this December.
