NFL Playoffs 2012: Power Ranking Every Head Coach

As the 2012 NFL Playoffs commence Saturday afternoon in Houston, many questions are asked. Most notably is the question: Who is going to win this whole tournament when all is said and done? 

And few questions affect the answer to that question as much as which team has the best head coach. Granted there have been teams in history who won with an average-to-below-average head coach (Tampa Bay with Jon Gruden or Baltimore with Brian Billick, anyone?). Interestingly enough both won with below-average quarterbacks (no offense, Trent Dilfer and Brad Johnson). 

But in today's game, winning without a great head coach and a great quarterback is nearly impossible. Thus, these rankings will be very dependent upon who the team is placing trust in at said position as they embark on their playoff journey this January (that should give you a pretty good idea which coaches are in the top three already).
