The Baltimore Ravens are the only NFL team to make the post season the past five years in a row. Not coincidently, that is the same length of the head coaching tenure of Ravens head coach John Harbaugh. However, Harbaugh's name is virtually never mentioned in the same sentence of those considered the top of the coaching totem pole.
Elliott Harrison of NFL.com just posted a story listing his list of the top ten NFL Head Coach Power Rankings and while John did make the list, he is only smack dab in the middle of it. Harrison ranks Harbs behind, in order, the New England Patriots' Bill Belichick (#1), the New York Giants' Tom Coughlin (#2), the Green Bay Packers' Mike McCarthy (#3) and the Pittsburgh Steelers' Mike Tomlin (#4).
Behind John sits Andy Reid (#6), brother Jim (#7), John Fox (#8), Jeff Fisher (#9) and Rex Ryan (#10). John Harbaugh's Ravens defeated Belichick's Patriots twice last season, demolished Coughin's Giants, split with Tomlin's Steelers, stunned Fox's Broncos and edged his brother's 49ers in Super Bowl XVLII. On Tomlin and Fox defeated the Ravens last year but still that does not get Harbaugh any credit.
As Baltimore Beatdown frequent contributor Mr MaLoR posted recently as a comment under another story, take a look at Harbaugh's record compared to Tomlin, much less the rest of the league:
