Should Nick Sirianni remain as the Eagles' head coach? Some say yes, but let's discuss a few options if he doesn't.

2. Bill Belichick - 333-178 in 29 NFL seasons (including playoffs)

Yeah, you knew we had to take it there. It's Bill freaking Belichick for crying out loud!

Now, here's the most controversial statement you'll hear all week. I believe Bill Belichick is one of the greatest NFL head coaches of all time. I also believe that's largely attributable to Tom Brady. Look at everything he has done before his time with TB12 and in the years that have followed the New England Patriots' decision to move on from the G.O.A.T., and you'll see two completely different-looking head coaches.

Every NFL coach is flawed in some way. Heck, Belichick has no business in an NFL Draft war room, but I know he's better than Nick Sirianni, and I know he could have beaten Andy Reid in Super Bowl LVII.

1. Jim Harbaugh - Michigan Wolverines head coach

Again... You knew that we had to take it there. Jim Harbaugh did a great job with the Michigan Wolverines and at both the University of San Diego and Stanford before that. Let's be honest though. This guy belongs in the NFL. Look at what he did with the San Francisco 49ers during his best years while he was there.

Harbaugh has crafted an NCAA record of 144–52 and a 49–19–1 win-loss total at football's highest level. He never had a losing season in four years with the Niners and owns a 5-3 playoff record.

Most importantly, he brings instant credibility and has forgotten more about how to coach than Nick Sirianni will ever know (no disrespect). We're all for this one. We'll drive the car to pick him up. Come on Jeffrey. Come on Howie! Do the right thing. Make this happen.
