There’s honestly no way Pederson is below anyone in the tier above him. As a matter of fact, he’s better than almost everyone in that second tier as well.

I'm sorry, but please review the thread title. This is the Definitive list.

Despite having bet on him as Coach of the Year (+1600), I don't have a lot of respect for Doug Pederson. I think he's Zac Taylor's Ghost of Christmas Future-slash-the guy who certain people think Mike Tomlin is.

Real ones remember that I flipped from Kliff to Dan Campbell during the last head coaching search.

Doug Pederson won a SB with Nick Foles beating Tom Brady. maybe move him up one tier?
I agree, he has Jacksonville playing good ball and their defense has given up just 10 points in their last two games. They sit atop their division. He belongs at least one tier up.

I feel like you’re, or at least were, one of them people that thought Frank Reich & maybe even the QB Coach was the mastermind behind that Eagles’ run & not Doug.

I was and am. Love Frank Reich but that's being tested the past year or so.

Also Jim Schwartz.

And Laurie and Roseman in the front office.

He didn't inherit a roster without talent in Jacksonville this season, either. Or a particularly good division. We'll see on him.
