I just recently stumbled across this. ESPN Sports Nation is tracking Approval Ratings for NFL coaches via polls by us….the online public. I thought I would revisit this after reading that Scott Linehan’s position will be re-evaluated after the season. This is the time of year that fans start calling for the head of their coach, right?
Pretty interesting if your the kind that likes to follow trends (as I am) and vote in these types of things. You can have a look at week five HERE. Mike Tomlin tops the list this week for good reason. 90% Approval rating.
Some of the bottom feeders? Sean Payton 20%, Mike Shanahan 20%, Cam Cameron 18%, Scott Linehan 17% (somehow up from 9% the last two weeks), Herm Edwards 17%, Brad Childress 16%.
They give a brief summary of last weeks performance. Clicking on the link for each coach will give you the chance to vote and gives you a chart from the last two seasons.
So go ahead and take your online venom out on these guys…or praise them.
