I voted for Sean Peyton, even though it could very easily be Mangini.

Re: Who is the coach of the year so far?

When I look at who should be the coach of the year, I look at what factors have changed and what has held constant. With this approach, there is no doubt that Mangini should easily be the coach of the year and it is not a contest.



Mangini and there is no doubt about it. A quarterback that was supposed to suck, there best running back not available, etc.....

Payton has an unbelievable cast to work with led by one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL that was not a Saint last year. He has done an incredible job, but they have weapons galore.

Fischer? Done a good job, but this team has only won 9 games the previous two seasons and were well on the way to possibily only winning a game or two this year. Don't confuse Fischer's job this year with the ability of his quarterback to win football games.

Reid has done a great job as always, but a pro bowl quarterback was replaced by a pro bowl quarterback. And the Eagles have talent.

I'm more impressed with the job he did this year than the other candidates. Don't get me wrong, I think Payton and Mangini have done a marvelous job as well. I'd rank 'em:

Fisher
Mangini
Payton

Re: Who is the coach of the year so far?

I read a decent article on ESPN today supporting Fisher. A lot of guys forget the extremely tough schedule the Titans have faced this year...

To go from 3-13 last year to having a first round bye in the playoffs! Not to mention all of the Katrina hoopla. Call me a homer but i think Payton takes this easily.

I think he deserves the award as well. However, I believe Fisher has done better than Mangini.

1. Payton
2. Fisher
3. Magnini
4. Could actually go to around 5 head coaches in the NFL right now.

Well, I do agree with you on that. I just think that many coaches had a chance of success when he got to play with a Reggie Bush, Joe Horn, Deuce McAllister, and a vet QB like Brees in his offense. I will not be disappointed if any one of those three guys win it. To be honest, I should re-rank them and put Payton ahead of Mangini.

I still think Fisher had much less to work with this year as far as personnel and having them come so close to making the playoffs after the start they had was pretty impressive. Payton guiding the Saints this season with the Katrina aftermath was no small feat either. I think he was in an easier division and had an easier schedule than the Titans though too. I think there can be a good argument made for any of those guys. Again, I'd be happy if Fisher or Payton won. Mangini too, but not as much.

I think that to say anyone takes this year's award "easily" is ridiculous, IMO.
