Some dude posted that he thought Saban (and others) deserved more consideration than Dungy for Coach of the Year, and said that he didn't think it should have been as close a vote as it was (Lovie 24.5, Dungy 20.5) because Dungy, while being a great leader, person and coach, took a 12-4 team that was already an established powerhouse and made it a 13-3 team, whereas Saban took a 4-9 team in utter disarray and made it a respectable 9-7 team. Well, people jumped on him as if he spit on the grave of Dungy's poor son for even DARING to question whether Dungy should have almost won COTY. As for me, I think he had a point: Saban did an incredible job with far less than Dungy had to work with, and as far as pure coaching went this year, while Dungy was very good -- the defense improved greatly, and he handled the "undefeated" stuff well making it clear what a tremendous person he is as well as a coach -- speaking purely from a football standpoint, he didn't have nearly as difficult a task and as many hurdles to jump in Indy as Saban did in Miami, IMO.What do you guys think: should a guy like Saban have received more consideration than Dungy this year, or did what Dungy endured off the field -- and how he handled that truly awful turn of events within the scope of an NFL season -- make him more of a viable candidate?note: I am not a Colts or Fins homer...but I'm intrigued by this debate for some reason.

 
When you mentioned the Huddle, all other discussion became irrelevant.
:lmao: Sure, OK, guess I had that coming...but I like to peruse other FF boards to see what people are chatting about, and this one jumped out at me.
 
I think Marvin Lewis was totally overlooked. Good guy, great coach. Bengals have gone from laughingstock to dangerous.

Dungy's task wasn't as difficult, sure; but he was infinitely more successful. One has HFA throughout the playoffs, the other is sitting at home.Why Dungy should be punished for last year's success makes no sense.

So... Holmgren should have gotten some consideration, too?
 
I've always thought the "unofficial" parameters for Coach of the Year was to give it to the coach who accomplishes most against the longest odds. But, obviously, record has to come into play, too.
