The Man! Love him or hate him, he's the best coach in the game, hands down. 7 Super bowls, 2 as Def Coord w/Giants, division titles, and double digit wins. Loses players, drafts better ones, and brings in guys that others may not want. Did wonders with Randy Moss and many others. Takes guys and molds them into good football players. Yes he has Tom Brady, but remember he was winning with Bledsoe too. Plus when Brady went down, with Matt Cassell they went 11-5!!!! Has that working man look and never seems to lose his cool. Great coach.
Yes I'm a Giants Fan, but even if not, he has to be this high. I'm also a military vet, so I like the disciplinarian that he is. But he also mellowed out in 2007, and look what he's done since. No coach, no person, has been under fire more than he has, and yet he handles it with class and his teams respond. Players actually love the guy, and he has turned into a Hall of Fame coach.
First, so sorry for his loss. I am a die hard Giants fan, but lived in Philly for Reid's first 8 yrs as coach. Hate the Eagles, but this is a players coach. He wins, players respect him and play hard for him and he takes blame when things go bad. One Big problem I have with him is his bad clock management in big games (See SB XXXIX). But has great personality and love of his players.
