My 5 Most Hated: NFL Head Coaches (past or present)
Bill Cowher isn't on my list, but I knew it would draw in some Steeler fans.
Everyone has NFL Coaches they really don't like. Sometimes it's a team in the same division as your favorite team. Other times it's how they conduct themselves on the sidelines, in press conferences, or their words in papers or magazines.
I'm making this list as I go. I'm relying on my inner feelings to supply me with a host of candidates. Maybe it's a single event or career as a whole, but fans can usually point to the reasons why they hate someone.
This slideshow is the 2nd in my "Most Hated" series. I hope you enjoy my slides and captions, comments are welcomed!
Jerry Glanville was the kind of guy you love to hate. He had the swagger and cockiness of a Super Bowl winner, a feat which he never achieved.
Got to hand it to him, he alone brought out the best in the Bengals one Monday night. After the Bengals thrashed his Oilers 61-7, the Bengals denied running up the score on the Oilers. They ran it up on Jerry Glanville.
Mike Shanahan is a good coach, if you don't believe me just ask him! That's always been my rub with Shanahan, very big ego.
Mike always gave the impression that the teams he coach are good because of his coaching abilities. On the other hand, his coaching had nothing to do when they struggled.
The team wins because of him, the teams loses because of the players.
He's been to the NFL what a crafty crew chief is to Nascar, it's only against the rules if you get caught. And like the crew chief, I'm sure has gotten away with more than we know.
I will commend Bill for the closeness of his relationship with his father. Quite honestly most of the hatred that fans feel for Belichick is brought on by his success.
Hard to believe this guy played QB at the University of Dayton. And how did he parlay that into a successful and very lucrative NFL career?
What credentials did this guy have when he first broke into the NFL? I'm not sure where he started, but I know how it ended.
A player's coach when they were winning. A player's nitemare when the were losing. And what is it with the "Chuckie" facial expressions?
As a sports fan, I've never liked "Hired Guns". Which is exactly what Bill Parcells became.
Yes, he probably was smart to take the deals. If owners want to throw insanely amounts of money his way, what not take their cash? Why not? Integrity, honesty, and being true to your beliefs.
Bill has had success where ever he has gone, but I bet he was unable to enjoy it because he was in those situations simply for the money.
