2021/22 Coach of the Year NFL Preview
Mike Vrabel has the opportunity to make history as the possible Coach of the Year NFL 2021 -22. He has been asked about the possibility the last few weeks and has only admitted that it is interesting, but not important.
Vrabel has made himself quite the case this season. He got the Titans all the way to the number one seed in the AFC despite losing Derrick Henry for the entire second half of the regular season.
Nobody seems better suited to claim this award with all of this adversity, especially with their roster changes.
To put it into perspective, the Titans played with a league record 91 players on the season, far and away the leader in this category.
Their loss in their first playoff game this season may have dropped him out of the top spot, but voters should still take everything else into account and have him at the top of their lists.
These awards are usually handed out to coaches that have taken a team from a high draft pick all the way into the playoffs.
Taylor is the head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals and definitely changes his team's fortunes in the span of one season.
Suddenly, they are the seventh scoring offense, jumping up 22 spots from where they were a year ago.
Also, their ten wins this season were more than it had in the previous two years combined, with only six during that span.
Not to mention that their defense was in the top 20 in total yards allowed to their opponents after finishing worse the previous four years.
Everything points to a major turnaround that doesn’t happen often and Taylor was the leading coach of it all. It’s hard not to vote for him this year.
Unfortunately, the playoff collapse probably knocked him out of contention but Vrabel lost as well, giving him a slight shot.
LaFleur is up in these conversations just because of his consistency as a coach, and having the best record in the league certainly helps his case.
He also had to bring his team together throughout all of the Rodger's reports during the offseason about him and Adams wanting to leave the team and other things like that.
We also can’t forget about the injuries that faced Green Bay all year long. Jaire Alexander was just one of their star players that missed a lot of time this season, yet they didn’t miss a beat on either end of the field and wound up being a strong unit regardless.
LaFleur likely won’t win the award, but he certainly got himself into the conversation.
We all know that Bill Belichick is arguably the greatest coach in NFL history.
The job he did with the New England Patriots this year was unbelievable. Normally voters don’t look at him that much because he is always making his teams consistently good, which doesn’t fit the whole taking a team from bad to good narrative.
Still, Belichick was able to get rid of Cam Newton and take a rookie quarterback in Mac Jones to the postseason.
We also can’t forget about that Patriots game when they played the Buffalo Bills this season. When Belichick decided that he was going to run it 46 times and throw it only three times.
Yet they still found a way to win that game!
Voter fatigue is likely to keep him from winning, but he will certainly be in the conversation this year.
Nick Sirianni perfectly fits that narrative of taking a team to new heights like we have previously talked about with Zac Taylor.
He was a first-year head coach for the Philadelphia Eagles, and nobody expected them to be good this year.
In fact, there were a lot of analysts that even predicted that they would have the least amount of wins this season by a longshot.
Jalen Hurts started every game that he was healthy, outside of getting rested in the season finale, and he proved to be very capable of leading the team.
The only problem was that they were trying to throw the ball too much at the beginning of the season.
Sirianni then flipped the script in the second half of the year and turned them into a run heavy group.
They also started the season off with a 3-6 record and jumped up to 9-8 and make the playoffs.
They doubled their win total from the 2020 season and their leading rusher, passer and receiver were all different from the year before.
There aren’t many coaches out there that can endure that much roster turnover and still have a playoff team with that much rushing success.
