    5 Most Overrated NFL Head Coaches Heading Into 2019 Season

    It can be hard to grade NFL head coaches. Some have immaculate supporting casts that do it all for them, while others have to mold late-round prospects into Super Bowl-winning players. The best way to evaluate them is whether they have performed above or below expectations.


    Here are five NFL head coaches that have been underwhelming heading into 2019.

    5. Pat Shurmur, New York Giants


    Pat Shurmur was supposed to fix the New York Giants last season. He was hand-picked by Dave Gettleman following a top-10 offensive season with Case Keenum and the Minnesota Vikings. Shurmur was handed the reigns to one of the most talented set of offensive skill players in the NFL with Odell Beckham, Saquon Barkley, and Evan Engram, but still managed to land in the bottom half of the league in points and yards per game. With a 38-year-old Eli Manning and no Beckham in 2019, this year could be very telling of Shurmur's head coaching talent


    4. Jon Gruden, Oakland Raiders


    Despite sitting in the Monday Night Football booth for eight years, Jon Gruden was gifted a 10-year, $100 million contract by the Oakland Raiders. It made him the second-highest paid coach in 2018, behind Bill Belichick. Gruden flopped in his first year, going 4-12, after trading away Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper. While the Raiders are clearly committed to him long term, his first season didn't inspire much confidence. Gruden now has a career head-coaching record of 99-93, with a 5-4 postseason record.


    3. Jason Garrett, Dallas Cowboys

    While Jason Garrett has three double-digit win seasons under his belt, he also has five seasons with nine or fewer wins. Add that to a 2-3 playoff record and you're looking at a coach that should have been on the hot seat for a long time. Jerry Jones declined to offer him an extension this offseason, meaning this will be a make-or-break season for Garrett.


    2. Dan Quinn, Atlanta Falcons

    The Atlanta Falcons hoped they'd found a defensive mastermind in Dan Quinn when they poached him from Seattle. Although, since arriving in Atlanta, Quinn has coached a top-10 defense just once in his four-year stint and is best known for a historic Super Bowl collapse. Unless he can fix his defensive woes in 2019, his offense will need to carry the team yet again. And if you have a defensive-minded coach relying that much on his offense, is he really doing his job?


    1. Mike Tomlin, Pittsburgh Steelers

    Mike Tomlin is one of those coaches that looks great on paper. He excels in the regular season and has had double-digit wins in eight of his 12 seasons, including a Super Bowl win, but you have to put that into context. He has had the luxury of potential Hall of Famers at quarterback, wide receiver and running back for the last five seasons. He has also gone 3-5 in his last five postseason appearances prior to missing out on the playoffs entirely in 2018. Le'Veon Bell is gone, Antonio Brown has been traded, and Ben Roethlisberger is entering his age-37 season. If a coach can't consistently win in the postseason with that offensive core, what is he going to do without it?

    Tomlin is definitely not overrated by the large majority of Steelers Nation, that’s for sure.

    He is over-rated by one ...Me! The writer made it very simple but true...Defense has sucked with a Coach with a " Defensive background"...And had a HOF QB, WR, and great RB...But as we all have seen he created/ then allowed a culture where players could do whatever the Hell they want, especially the " Star " players...

    Boom............................
    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    I have over 4 dozen Steeler fans/friends here on the west coast. And only one doesn't want Tomlin fired. All the rest want Tomlin gone.

    But I do admit, I'm curious as hell to see what the team looks and acts like now that the influences of Bell and A** Clown are off the team.

    It's convenient to blame the HC when you don't care to look a little deeper. Fortunately the Steelers brass does look deeper.
    Example; where was Bell during the playoff runs?

    Usually hurt...Hurt because he ran him into the ground...Ran him into the gound when he had a good backup in Blount ( who he never used ) and a very good one in DeAngelo, who was leading the league in rushing when Bell came back from suspension, then rotted on the bench...

    Then ran Bells wheels off ( Tomlins words ) So he was hurt for the playoffs...

    So basically to answer your question...Bell was injured and unavailable durirg the playoffs BECAUSE of Tomlin...

    You continue to strengthen my case...
