What's the blueprint for a successful head coach?
My local paper compiled a list of 12 key ingredients along with the current head coach who is the model in each category:
GAME DAY MANAGEMENT
BILL PARCELLS, COWBOYS: When was the last time he got outcoached?

OFFENSIVE Xs and Os
JON GRUDEN, BUCS: He is the latest guru.

DEFENSIVE Xs and Os
BILL BELICHICK, PATS:One game to shut down the best offense and you want Belichick cooking up the schemes. John Fox is a close second.

LEADERSHIP
BILL PARCELLS, COWBOYS: He leads, his players follow. He's 4-for-4 resurrecting dormant franchises. He rules by intimidation.

MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER
HERM EDWARDS, JETS: So inspirationl, Paul Tagliabue uses him at league meetings.

EMOTIONAL LEADER
DICK VERMELL, CHIEFS: Bring out the hankies if the Chiefs win the Super Bowl.

RECRUITER
MARVIN LEWIS, BENGALS: His presence enticed free agents to come to Cinninati, the former Siberia of the NFL.

PERSONAL EVALUATOR
BILL BELICHICK, PATS: Great drafts, smart free agent buys and a sixth-round QB could get him second Super Bowl title in three years.

ORGANIZATIONAL SKILLS
BILL PARCELLS, COWBOYS: One of the best ever at attention to detail. He practices passes out of bounds to kill a clock.

DELEGATOR
DICK VERMELL, CHIEFS: It takes a secure coach to manage the team and give his assistants authority.

CONSISTENCY
JEFF FISHER, TITANS: His teams are always in contention. He's in his 10th season and his players still listen to him.

MEDIA RELATIONS
DAN REEVES, FALCONS: Never ducks a question. Honest to a fault. Always returns phone calls.

Mid-Game ReactionistNot sure the proper term, but when the original game plan is failing and he must come up with a new strategy, mid-game, to win.
MIKE SHANAHAN[/B][/I]: Constantly evaluates what is working and what is not. Know's when it is time try a new scheme or approach. And most importantly he never gives up, and his team normally never gives up.
