Best NFL Head Coaches Going Into the 2018 Season

Some NFL coaches are ones who just can’t handle running a team. These guys however know what they are doing and are seasoned pros. They can be old or young. We’re looking at the top ten best NFL head coaches going into the 2018 season.

The Top Ten

1 Bill Belichick Bill Belichick William Stephen Belichick is an American football coach and the long-time head coach of the New England Patriots of the National Football League.

Okay, you guys know he deserves number one. What can I say? He’s a mastermind. - PackFan2005

2 Sean Payton Sean Payton

Sean Payton could just lead his team to a super bowl. - 2storm

Payton finally got the Saints back on track in 2017. Assuming his sideline behavior is good in 2018, then he’ll continue to be one of the NFL’s best. - PackFan2005

3 Doug Pederson Doug Pederson

He managed to get a backup Quarterback to win the super bowl in the most aggressive style of offense, and deserves a lot of credit... a little low for me. - htoutlaws2012

He got a team with a backup quarterback to win the Super Bowl. How’s that for size? He has a long coaching career with the Eagles ahead of him. - PackFan2005

He’s coming off a Super Bowl win with a backup Quarterback in Nick Foles against Tom Brady and the Patriots. I’m Expecting a great coaching career with Philadelphia for him - Randomator

4 Mike Zimmer Mike Zimmer Michael Zimmer is an American football coach. He is currently the head coach of the Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League.

He took this team and made them into a legitimate contender. He’s really an underrated coach - Randomator

A Vikings coach has a winning record? Strange, but when you consider how Zimmer turned this team around, you realize he’s underrated and one of the NFL’s best current head coaches. - PackFan2005

5 Sean McVay Sean McVay

Too high? Nope. What other coach could’ve turned a miserable 4-12 Rams team into NFC juggernauts? Jared Goff looked like a bust until McVay transformed him and the offense. I expect a lot from him in 2018. - PackFan2005

6 Pete Carroll Pete Carroll Peter Clay Carroll is an American football coach who is the head coach and executive vice president of the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League.

I think he’ll struggle a bit more in 2018, with a lot of his former players gone. He’s on the tail end of his coaching career, and the NFL’s oldest head coach expects to go out as a great in the coming years. All he needs to do is win another Super Bowl. - PackFan2005

7 Mike McCarthy Mike McCarthy Michael John McCarthy is an American football coach who is the head coach of the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League. He led the Packers to a win in Super Bowl XLV against his hometown team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

He certainly hasn’t won much in the postseason, but give him some credit for managing to actually win a Super Bowl. I sound stupid saying that, don’t I? - PackFan2005

8 Mike Tomlin Mike Tomlin Michael Pettaway Tomlin is an American football coach who is the 16th head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League.

I don’t know, but maybe Pittsburgh should move on. He’s still a good head coach, but he’s regressed over time. I’m still fine with him though. - PackFan2005

9 Ron Rivera Ron Rivera Ronald Eugene "Ron" Rivera is an American football coach and former player who is the head coach of the Carolina Panthers of the National Football League.

On a Panthers team spiraling downwards, Rivera could be their saving grace. - PackFan2005

10 Bill O'Brien Bill O'Brien

He has a stacked team this year, and if he makes the playoffs and wins a game there, then he’ll really be among the NFL’s best. - PackFan2005
