ORCHARD PARK, NY – Coach of the Year is a weird, season-end award because it doesn’t always belong to the guy who did the best coaching job. Instead, it tends to be for the coach whose team exceeds pre-season expectations the most. This is stupid. We rated these teams during the season without seeing them play, then one of them played better than we expected, so we said, “Wow, that coach did a great job. good “, when the fact was we were wrong and his team was very good.
I had this in mind watching the Bills beat the Patriots 24-21 last week and then come back and beat the Seahawks 44-34 with this week’s heavyweight plan. Buffalo’s Sean McDermott may not have won Coach of the Year as too many have chosen Bills to win the AFC East pre-season. But he just knocked out Bill Belichick, whom he got 0-6 as a coach earlier last week, then came back and beat Pete Carroll, who hasn̵7;t dropped too many points since He was at the USC, losing to a Jim Harbaugh / Andrew Luck from Stanford.
