  • 13. Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati Bengals: Lewis is 79-80-1, which isn't great.

    15. Pete Carroll, Seattle Seahawks: His career record also has him only four games over .500. That's just OK.


    LOL. Just brilliant Prisco.

  • Given some of the rules of the rankings, it's not a totally unfair evaluation. He should probably be ahead of Marvin Lewis given the fact he's won 2 games in the postseason, but before last year, his record for Seattle was 14-18 in regular season games and it was only the great run last year that put him over the top of the .500 mark. Prisco also mentions he's on the rise. Prisco sucks most of the time, but until the wins come, Pete's still going to have his doubters. (Which will end after the Super Bowl win this year. :) )

  • I generally enjoy Prisco because he's kind of a subtle troll and has no qualms about going against the popular media grain on any given subject, but he's way off on this one with Carroll.

    Hard to believe he's the same guy that spent an hour defending Richard Sherman's eliteness on Twitter.

    We do, but that has transitioned more into automatically sticking qualifiers before every B/R post, and trying to make fun of people that post them in a perceived-to-be-cool manner.

  • Fun fact:

    When Bill Belichick won his first Superbowl, he had a regular season record of 16-16 with the Patriots in two seasons.

    After he won this 3rd superbowl and reached dynasty status, his career regular season record as a head coach (including previous stints) was just 89-71 over ten seasons, meaning that his teams, on average, were just a shade below 9-7.

    I wonder if Pete Prisco was a Bill Belichick doubter in the early 2000s? Just looking at wins without context is pretty stupid.

    Excellent! (cue the Mr. Burns gif...)

    Now I know when and who to bash when the opportunity presents itself.

    Thanks RD!

    Prisco probably thinks Barry Switzer was damn good.

    IDK, I think most people don't give Pete enough credit considering the squad he beat the defending world champion Saints with in the playoffs after squeaking in at 7-9.

    Indeed. Which is why obtaining a franchise QB says a lot about a coach.

    That may not be true anymore, or much longer. 4 franchise QBs drafted last year; it seems like now, we are seeing more and more QBs stay longer/learn more in college, but also that are learning a lot more about being a QB at a younger age such as junior high, high school, etc. I suspect finding a good QB will be increasingly less difficult with each passing year or two.

    We'll have to wait and see.

  • I don't like Pete because he's your coach, but to place him as a middle of the pack coach is just..... stupid. The job he has done with the Seahawks since his arrival is not something to ignore. Can't judge a coach on the job they did with another team.

  • It's hard to not be biased in favor of Pete but in my very honest opinion, we lost to the Falcons because of coaching. We left points on the field in the first half that could have made all the difference in the world. The suspect coaching decisions weren't just isolated to the first half. There were some head-scratchers at the end of the game as well. If not for Russell Wilson's fantastic effort, we would be talking a lot more about PC's misgivings.

    That said, I do think PC is a cut above the rest with regard to his ability to innovate and motivate. I also admire his willingness to go against the grain and the courage of his convictions. All this makes him exciting as a Hawks fan.

    Gameday coach? Dunno, I still am forming an opinion on that.

  • I can watch dumb plays all the time and see oh that's what he was thinking. Time after time with the but fumble though its like I cant figure it out. He can see whats coming from a mile away and theres no sudden changes at all. Its like he was talking on his celluar helmet phone rather then playing qb and ran into a offensive line man.

    Im tired of the whole lets hate Rex internet ban wagon hes done a fine job as a coach. Really get off the medias dick. Hes said some stupid shit but done a good job from season to season with what hes had to work with.

  • I disagree, Tim Ruskell is our favorite whipping boy followed closely by Aaron Curry presently. Priscoe is a long running joke. Holmgren baited him to publishing what he thought was going to be the draft pick and he has resented us ever since if memory serves.
