TSN: No Raiders among top coaches

Something to chew on while waiting for Tom Cable to give a pre-camp update . . .

The Sporting News compiled a list of the top 50 coaches or managers in all of sports, including pro and college football, the NHL, the NBA and college basketball. UCLA coach John Woodson was No. 1, with Green Bay and Washington Redskins coach Vince Lombardi No. 2.

Bill Walsh somehow came in at No. 26, behind Joe Gibbs, Tom Landry and Bill Belichick.

Following Lombardi, the following NFL coaches made the list:

5–Don Shula
12–Paul Brown
14–George Halas
15–Chuck Noll
17–Joe Gibbs
18–Tom Landry
20–Bill Belichick
26–Bill Walsh
33–Bill Parcells

Among the 118 panelists who voted included Joe Bugel, Tom Cable, Bill Callahan and Mike White. So chances are there will be no Raiders’ release taking issue with the selections, most notably for leaving off Al Davis and John Madden.
The entire list is below:

1. John Wooden, college basketball
2. Vince Lombardi, NFL
3. Bear Bryant, college football
4. Phil Jackson, NBA
5. Don Shula, NFL
6. Red Auerbach, NBA

12. Paul Brown, NFL
13. Joe Paterno, college football
14. George Halas, NFL
15. Chuck Noll, NFL
16. Bob Knight, college basketball
17. Joe Gibbs, NFL
18. Tom Landry, NFL
19. Mike Krzyzewski, college basketball
20. Bill Belichick, NFL
21. Adolph Rupp, college basketball

    Well, as per MR’s instructions I will now switch from being a Southwick shill to looking for a scapegoat. It certainly can’t be Davis’ fault…must be that damn salary cap!

    priest, Ray Charles can also see that the Raiders have sucked for 6 straight years, and haven’t made one move in upper management. Ray Charles can also see that the talent you’re over-hyping was hand picked by this very pisspore management. Ray Charles can also see that team shills like you have been hyping up similar, mediocre talent in previous seasons. Also, Ray Charles is dead, which means he can’t see, hear, touch or feel anything. So obviously you guys over in Alameda need to update your cultural references as well as your football strategy.

    :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    OK. Even Stevie Wonder could see that firing Lombardi was an upper management move.

    No Dakota, it wasnt Raider O that was waived it was Southwick…

    legalize it……

    Whats Good O??????

  • Teabag

    the common theme here seems to be no MATTER WHO is drafted as long as they have a Raider uni on “I really like this guys grit and determination… he has such heart”

    I don’t know…. I wish they had TALENT.

    I know Carolina was interested before we got him. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him land in Minny though. He’s going to be a starter in this league

    we had to free up room to sign Michael Vick anyways …

    I just hope Danny Southwick doesn’t end up in Denver for the next 15 years rubbing our nose in it. lmao.

    I must admit I was a bit worried about Southwick. Oakhole is a rough place for a kid on a mission from god. You walk around town with that halo and sooner or later you’ll get jacked.

    You want to look at someone who’s anti white, MB, look at the previous administration. George and Dick sent a lot of white kids to die for oil, and left a lot of poor white people stranded in Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina. See the documentary, “When The Levee Broke”.

    Wait for the documentary “When Capitalism Died”

    priest, who was hired to take Lombardi’s place? Who is the Raiders’ top personnel guy? Where does the buck stop? That’s what I meant by a change in upper management, liar.

  • http://none The Real MaddenRaider

    AD has cojones,

    “When Capitalism Died” will be starring Bush and Cheney, too. If you want to call Wall Street’s scam of this past decade “capitalism”, suit yourself.

  • Mistabrown

    No it counts for nothing. First of all I have no proof you’re married to a white woman. Second, maybe she was desperate & rich and you stumbled onto something. Third, I go by the ridiculous moron statements you make here on a daily basis.

    Nope, could care less.

    Capitalism died during the Great Depression, anyway. Since the Great Depression, not one single American has ever been entirely dependent on their self. There has always been some form of government to help anyone in need. We’ve lived under Democratic Social ism ever since, which includes a great deal of free enterprise. All O b ama’s going to do is take a lot of the money government’s giving to the rich, and give it to the working class.

    So were we fighting for oil, or killing capitalism, which is it?

    Want to blame someone for the wallstreet fiasco, how bout Franklin Raines.

    While we’re at it, lets blme Clinton for the Tech bubble too, letting all those speculators invest in those fraudulent penny stocks.
