    It's kind of hard to make this list but I think Cameran is Top 5, he's right there with Marty Morhinweg.

    Good thing is we've moved on from these coaches. The Dolphins can now move on to better times with Philbin at the helm. :up:

    I don't see how Sparano would be on the list. Its not like he was horrific. He was just mediocre. 11-6, 7-9, 7-9 and 6-10. That being said, if you go off of record, Wanny shouldnt be there ither.

    I think that it was based upon how coaches utilized the players and teams that they had and not so much pure record. However, I don't entirely disagree with anyone on the list. It isn't anything too serious and certainly is completely objective but it is funny that most everyone on this board is validated that we knew that those coaches were idiots and now it's in print. Thank the Lord that we are in A LOT better situation now...Go Fins & Philbin!

    Joke list. About what I'd expect out of most of the bleacher report authors. McDaniels as second worst of ALL TIME? Really? Kubiak on the list at all? Saban in the top 20?

    I made it through the first two and stopped reading. Jack del Rio took his team to the playoffs multiple times with different starting quarterbacks. Brad Childress took his team to a championship game. The Bleacher Report is really stupid, but this is one of the worst. It shows no scale for how many coaches have been in the NFL.

    Yea...This is what needs to be taken from this list. We definately have had 3 of the top 10 to suffer through but IMO Wanny should be #1. He had MUCH more to work with than Cam-moron and did less with it.

    Unrelated to this post did you happen to catch the NFL commish on 60 mintues last night? All 32 NFL teams "share" 80% of the profits so even the losers "win" come payout time. No wonder teams get down (MIA) and stay that way...0 incentive to get out of the basement.

    Hey, haven't you heard, spreading the wealth around is good for everybody. It's not about achievement, its about 'fairness'. Those successful teams have to pay their fair share.

    I thought the list was pretty stupid, putting Cam as worse than the Lions' coach that didn't win a single game was pretty ridiculous.

    Whether you agree with the ultimate accuracy of the list or the final rankings, this is the point of my posting the list. A lot of coaches who have worn the Aqua & Orange since Shula have sucked big donkey butt. It is sad that more than 12% of "worst coaches of all time" have been head coaches or offensive/defensive coordinators with the Dolphins in the past 15 years. Is it any surprise that we have sucked as well? I don't care if it comes from Bleacher Report, the Obama Whitehouse, or from my Aunt Peggy...our coaching has stunk up the place for the past decade or so!

    Only problem with your analysis is that you fail to realize that just because someone was a bad head coach it does not mean they are also a bad coordinator. Nolan and Capers are highly respected coordinators in this league. Given your same logic the Patriots would also be a laughing stock because they too employed several of the coaches on that list as coordinators.

    When Mike Singletary failed as a head coach....I knew the game as I knew and loved it was dead.

    I hope Singletary gets another shot somewhere. I still remember the press conference after he kicked Vernon Davis off the field. That was epic!...maybe he can't be a HC...but I'm still a fan.

    Singletary's style is as dead as Mike Tice.

    They don't play football like we understand football to be.

    I don't disagree with your logic nor was mine ever that many of the coaches on that list weren't/aren't very good coordinators. However you look at it though, an inordinantly high number of those goofs were coaches for the Dolphins. Heck, Wanny was an excellent DC, Cam is still a good OC and Saban is obviously an exceptional college coach but they really sucked as head coaches for the Dolphins.

    I would hesitate to call too many of our coaches terrible. Saban had us with a winning record in his first year and a bad gamble on a quarterback is what made 2006 so dreadful, but he still managed to win 6 games. Cam Cameron had a terrible first year but he has to be given an incomplete. Sparano had us in the playoffs in our first year and the team was always competitive even if they always hovered just under .500. Wannstedt is the truly terrible one, as the team got worse every year after he arrived.

    They certainly didn't put a lot of effort into that list. The majority are from the late 1990s and 2000s. Weren't there bad coaches before then?

    I think that posting of Bleacher Report should be required to put "BLEACHER REPORT:" or "BR:" in the post title so I can avoid clicking on them.

    The problem with Mike Singletary was that he never GA'd anywhere, or worked his way up the coaching ranks. Thus, he never really learned HOW to coach, both at the micro and macro level. Singletary is a perfect example of someone who got the opportunity to coach based strictly off his player legacy.

    The difference in styles between Jim Harbaugh and Mike Singletary couldn't be more different, despite both having played under Mike Ditka. Singletary was a "big picture" guy who didn't focus on the details. I've heard 49er players talk about how Singletary didn't even attend installation meetings. He didn't even know what was being called or why they called it. His style was more a 'yeller' and a 'motivator'.

    Harbaugh on the other hand, is extremely detail oriented. The best coaches usually are. They chalk it, talk it, walk it, run it... then chalk it, talk it, walk it, and run it some more. Harbaugh learned how to be so detail oriented from his days under Bo Schembechler at Michigan, and from his dad. Coaching is in the Harbaugh DNA.

    Singletary was hired to be head coach without even having been a coordinator, only a position coach. If he had taken a coaching career seriously, he would've GA'd somewhere and learned HOW to be detail oriented. Singletary was a guy who enjoyed having a public platform to promote his views and opinions, rather than focusing on the details of coaching.

    NFL players making 7 and 8 figures tend not to respond to yelling or pulling your pants down. They respond to competence.
