Rotoworld ranks John Harbaugh as NFL's fifth best coach

His brother Jim Harbaugh is ranked third.

This list could ruffle some Ravens' fans feathers.

Sure, Ravens coach John Harbaugh was given some respect by the website Rotoworld in that he was named the fifth-best coach in the NFL today.

But Harbaugh is ranked two spots behind one coach that has a solid resume but no Super Bowl championship. And that's his brother, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh.

Rotoworld ranked Jim Harbaugh third, behind No. 1 Bill Belichick and No. 2 Pete Carroll.

Jim Harbaugh is the only coach in Rotoworld's top five without a Super Bowl title. No. 4 is New Orleans coach Sean Payton, with John Harbaugh at No. 5.

To be fair to Jim Harbaugh, he has the best winning percentage of any active head coach at .766 (36-11-1). But the lack of a Super Bowl title should knock him down a notch, you'd think.

All things considered, it's a pretty solid top five. The list doesn't really make your head scratch until No. 6, which is Eagles coach Chip Kelly. How Kelly cracked the top 10 that high after one season in a weak NFC East is a bit strange.

But hey, to each their own.
