Power Ranking the Best Football Coaches From Movies
The NFL season is finally (almost) here. To celebrate, we’ve assigned power rankings to the greatest — or not-so-greatest — football coaches in the history of cinema.

ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBAAAAALL?!?!
Sorry. But the 2014-15 NFL season is just about here. If you’re anything like us, you’ve been obsessing over your fantasy roster — or, at least, taking 30 frantic minutes before your draft to try and familiarize yourself with the league’s top backup running backs so you don’t accidentally draft three kickers with your final three picks. Your drafts are probably over at this point, and chances are your team doesn’t play for a a couple more days. So what the hell are you going to do between now and then?
We naturally decided to assign power rankings to movie football coaches. We’d play for them all — yes, even Bud Kilmer — but we assigned power rankings like this: We took into account their accomplishments (both on and off the field), gave a lot of wait to just how much we’d want to play for them, took into account how inspirational they were, and punished the coaches who were especially big a-holes. Let us know what you think in the comments.
