What credentials do you have to rank anyone other than from what you see from your couch?

It sounds strange, but honestly when it comes to analyzing the game credentials are overrated. An astute fan probably has just as much knowledge as a typical professional analyst. Fans have access to the same film they do, they can see it and analyze it, when you can easily access learning material in a non professional setting amateurs may often be almost as, equal to or more knowledgeable than professionals especially if they pay attention to things most others don't.

Plus, if we think we can't analyze things because we lack credentials, why does this section of the forum even exist? Lol.

As to the list, it's tough for me to rank all 32 lol.

I would say

1 Billicheck
2 Arians
3 Payton
4 Coughlin
5 Carroll
6 McCarthy
7 Tomlin
8 Reid
9 Rivera
10 Zimmer
11 Pagano
12 M. Lewis
13 Fox
14 Kubiak
15 Fisher
16 Bowles
17 Ryan

Beyond that, it's hard to rank, I'd be mostly guessing. BB I think though is number 1, probably the best strategic coach in the league with great ingenuity, finding great ways to utilize players, focusing on aspects of the game often less focused on, and coming up with tactics that many may not think of, like signing Huard who was Manning's back up shortly before playing Manning in the 03 AFCC game.
