Anyone want to chime in on who they think will get this?

From November.

Honestly I would think Jack Del Rio and Zimmer deserve a shot.. they both turned around their teams,
very quickly.. It will probably be Carolina...IMO they had an easy schedule...if Carolina played in NFC
West I don't think they get better than a wild card...if that

AFC: Andy Reid, Bill O'Brien
NFC: Mike Zimmer, Ron Rivera, Bruce Arians, Jay Gruden

These are potential candidates, IMO.

Tomlin could get some votes as well. The defense in PIT is not close to what it once was and they still won 10 games, and Big Ben was out for some of those games.

Pitts D is no longer a top 10, but they are 12th in yards and 11th in point. Not shabby by any standards...... The other thing most of those team have is a much better QB.

Ron Rivera will win the award. Carolina was never expected to go 15-1. Zimmer should be considered strongly for the award as well.

Honestly, whichever team advances further in the playoffs will win the award - even though the award is more regular season in nature.

Arians or Rivera for sure. Out of curiosity why do you believe the award is more for the regular season?
