The top five coaching staffs in the NFL. These rankings are based on winning percentages, drafting players, developing players, and many other things these staffs have done over the years.

No. 5 - The Tennessee Titans

Jeff Fisher has become one of the top coaches in the NFL. Since taking over in 1994, the Titans have been though their fair share of ups and downs, but they have mostly been a successful organization under Fisher. 

The Tennessee coaching staff lost defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz after the 2008 season, but Jeff fisher alone makes the Titans staff one of the top five in the league.

No. 4 - New York Giants

Tom Coughlin is a great coach. He is a very strict coach and a great motivator.  Offensive Coordinator Kevin Gilbride is also a stellar coach. Gilbride is greatly responsible for the Giants high powered offenses over the past few years.

The Giants also do a very good job of drafting quality players and developing talent.  They proved that this past April with a great draft including: Hakeem Nicks, Clint Sintim, and William Beatty. 

No. 3 - Pittsburg Steelers

Mike Tomlin is a very good coach but most of his success has come with a team that Bill Cowher built. Tomlin is paired with defensive genius Dick Lebeau. Lebeau is clearly the best Defensive Coordinator in the league.

With a young head coach the Pittsburg Steelers staff is still on the rise.

No. 2 - Philadelphia Eagles

During the Andy Reid era the Eagles have been one of the winningest franchises in the NFL.  Reid has a great offensive mind and is very good at managing a team. Other than Dick Lebeau, Jim Johnson is the best defensive coordinator in the league. 

Hopefully he can return to the team in 2009.  The Eagles also have one of the best offensive line coaches in the NFL in Juan Castillo.

The Eagles do a great job of developing talent. Other than their first rounders, they also develope late round picks into great players. Trent Cole, Stewart Bradley, and Todd Herremans are all currently playing at a pro-bowl level.

No. 1 - New England Patriots

Bill Bellichick is the best head coach in the NFL. It seems like every year one of his coordinators is leaving for a head coaching job. Bellichick is a genius, he could do everything himself and the Patriots would still be at the top.

The Patriots do a great job in every draft by trading around to acquire top talent and get the players they want. As long as Bellichick is in New England the Patriots will be a great team.
