What makes a bad coach?
To answer that question – we first have to answer the question; who is a good coach.
NFL coaches like every other coach in professional sports are evaluated on three very important intangibles: 1, supreme knowledge of the game, 2, ability to evaluate, nurture and maximize player’s talent and 3, be a leader of men.
To be a good head coach in any top level professional sports in world, one must possess at least two of the above intangibles. To be a great head coach, they must have all three.
The NFL is a league made of teams with almost equal talent pool, so on any given Sunday any team can pull of a victory regardless of previous record.
