24. (tie) Josh McDaniels, Broncos and Todd Haley, Chiefs -- It's absolutely fitting that these two goofballs are mired in a feud, but that's only part of the reason I'm ranking them together. They deserve one another. Both of them clearly understand the Xs and Os part of the game, especially on offense, but their arrogance and general immaturity affects their decision making. We've now reached a point where a whole generation of young coaches wants to act like Bill Parcels, but they don't understand Parcels spent years building up credibility to go with his iron fist. You can't just assume players will respect your screaming tantrums. Schematically, Haley stubbornly refuses to give the ball to his best running back (Jamal Charles) for reasons no one can explain, other than Haley believes he's the smartest guy in the room. If he didn't want Chan Gailey to be his offensive coordinator two years ago, he shouldn't have hired him in the first place. McDaniels was probably right to get rid of Cutler when he did, but feuding with Brandon Marshall was pointless, especially in the middle of a season where the Bronocs were contending for a playoff spot, and betting his future on Tim Tebow hardly seems wise. Both can be good NFL coaches, but both need to grow up a bit before that happens.
Hmmm. Can't say I agree with this. They say Haley hired Gailey, all he did was retain him, and then replaced him with a much better offensive coordinator, a superbowl winning staff, and a great philosophy. To put Haley in the same boat as McDaniels is offensive.
