ha, im a huge steelers fan, but id say mike tomlin, he brought his team to the playoffs his first year coaching, which includes building up from a bad year last season, and he got both willie parker and ben roethlisberger having great years, big ben had 32 touchdown passes and a career high QB rating of 104, which is second best this season under tom brady, and willie parker had the leagues highest rushing yards untill he got injured... but i really do think that tomlin is a great coach and is doing much, much better than anyother rookie headcoach, ((bobby petrino)), now that guy sucked

No, it wouldn't. Who would want to be known as the team that went undefeated in the regular season but couldn't win when it really mattered?

My problem with Belichick's selection isn't that he was caught cheating, but that he had a team that was expected to win 14 games anyway. I'm putting on my Packers homer hat, but I think considering that no one expected his team to win more than 8 games before the season, and how little respect the Packers have gotten from the national media all season, he clearly did more with "less" than any other coach. Favre was supposedly washed up but McCarthy has him flying right again. He won games early in the season with a team that had no offensive identity and no running game to speak of.

That said- there were a lot of worthy candidates this year- Fisher, Tomlin, Crennel, and Gibbs come off the top of my head- and a good case could have been made for all of them, too.

He might be a jagoff but he is an undefeated one. VaFury you have valid points! I remember when Belechick appeared on the Tonight maybe a week after the last super bowl win. Jay Leno had as much success pulling hens teeth as he was trying to get Belechick to open up. Some people just have a sullen personality and he is one of them. If memory serves the media had fun with that interview. IMHO at that point he became more standoffish than ever.

they've won when it mattered 16 times so far this season....and no other team has ever been able to duplicate that (and probably won't for a long time). If you don't think that's impressive and memorable, then I can't imagine what is.

I think most of the coaches in the league were scratching their heads over the filming issue. Why the Jets, of all clubs-sheessh look at their record! Was he guilty? Yea. Do I condone that behavior? NO. But IMHO the writers had to come to grips with the fact that 16 and 0 is one heck of an accomplishment despite all the BS that happened and had to vote that way. mb919 is right; there are some great candidates for this award.

I guess if I had another favorite team other then the Pats I might hate the guy too. Im a Patriots fan from way way way back even when they sucked all those years. We finally have something to shout for the past 6-8 years.

I can remember hating Tom Landry because he like Belicheck would never even crack a half smile. If he did all his skin would crack, just like Belicheck. And that silly little fruity feather he would stick into his hat........

I look at Belicheck crooked too but Im glad he is on my side and not yours.

If you are judging him on his character and the puss on his face then you are judging another human being based on his looks and/or character. We know that is wrong, especially to the bible thumpers.

Are you haters instead judging him on his ability as a coach? If so then you are more jealous then you will admit.

not a Pats fan, but still think he deserves the award. If anyone thinks that every other team in the league is not involved in some form of "cheating", they are sadly mistaken.
Stop crying. There are more important things.

Nope, I'm judging him from his rediculous attitude or whatever the heck it was after they defeated Indy and he walks right by Dungy without saying a word... Again, you have a problem with Dungy then you are most likely the one with the problem.... I'll ask again. Anyone know what that's all about???

Oh, and no I'm not an Indy fan.... Just witnessed that classless maneuver after that game and really have detested Bellichick ever since..
