3. Jim Caldwell - Although he is a first time head coach, the success that Caldwell is having is not surprising. He has been an assistant for years, took over from a great head coach, and has PEYTON MANNING, who might as well be the head coach.
2. Sean Payton - I, like many others, started off this season waiting for this team to have a let down on the defensive side of the ball and they haven't. We all know what a great offensive mind Payton is, but bringing a defensive specialist to coach has made him look like one of the elite coaches in the NFL.
1. Josh McDaniels - By far this season, the Broncos are playing the part of cinderella and they are led by Belchick Jr.. McDaniels is the opposite of Belchick personallity wise, but the Broncos play this year has echoed the evil one's style. Considering the way the off season started for them, he should be a shoe in for this award.
