Clifton Brown, who covers the NFL for the Sporting News, ranks the league's 32 head coaches in a piece now posted on Sportingnews.com. He puts Bill Belichick second.

"With three Super Bowl rings, no current coach can match his resume," Brown writes. "Belichick has been remarkably consistent, with at least 10 wins in each of the past nine seasons. His place as an all-time great coach is secured. So why isn’t Belichick in the No. 1 slot?"


Brown then answers his own question, pointing out that Belichick has been on the losing side of three straight games against his No. 1 coach, the Giants' Tom Coughlin. Two of those games were Super Bowls.

Brown adds that Belichick is 1-5 lifetime against Coughlin.
