Alternate title: Who are your team's coordinators?

As an avid browser of Football's Future, I'm well aware that every team in this league boasts top 5 talent and personnel and is only being held back by the playcalling on offense, defense or both.

Every team/fanbase needs a scapegoat, and those good old lovable OC's and DC's are there for you every time you need! Your players are elite, and everyone aside from the professional coaches (meaning you, the armchair FF poster with a Phd in football schematics!) knows how to use their players correctly!

Off the top of my head, I can think of the following defensive or offensive coordinators who consistently draw ire... and granted these are only from the complainers who have caught my attention:

Ravens OC Cam Cameron
Ravens DC Dean Pees
Steelers DC Dick LeBeau
Raiders OC Greg Knapp
Bucs OC Mike Sullivan
Giants OC Kevin Gilbride
Eagles DC Juan Castillo
Panthers OC Rob Chudzinski
Panthers DC Sean McDermott
Seahawks OC Darren Bevell
Chiefs OC Brian Daboll
Chiefs HC/DC Romeo Crennel
Rams OC Brian Schottenheimer (haven't heard much from the Rams fans but the stink made when he was w/ the Jets was enough to at least put him in here)
Packers DC Dom Capers
Bears OC Mike Tice
Colts OC Bruce Arians
Titans DC Jerry Gray
Jaguars OC Bob Bratkowski
Saints DC Steve Spagnuolo
Jets OC Tony Sparano
Patriots OC Josh McDaniels
Browns OC Brad Childress
Bills DC Dave Wannestedt

It's not a week goes by that several hundred assistant coaches are nominated by their fanbases in one of the many spin threads as to why they are the 'worst OC' or 'worst DC' in the league. But there can only be ONE.

The royal rumble of terrible assistant coaches keeping their respective teams from glory is upon us! Now is your chance to make the case for YOUR assistant coach and why he is uniquely HORRIBLE. Tell me who I missed. Tell me who deserves to ROT IN HELL.

Who is the WORST of the WORST?

Sparano has been very good for the Jets. Even though the Jets offense has been pitiful, it has not been Sparano's fault. He has been a breath of fresh air following the atrocity that was Brian Schottenheimer.

Honestly and utterly Jason Garrett. Watch him call plays on offense. Every team knows what we're going to do, he makes terrible adjustments as well.

Darrell Bevell is easily the worst OC in football. In MN, he was always influenced by Childress, well, until Childress gave up play calling duties (2008). He did nothing in MN and rode the success of Favre to Seattle, where he is again, miserable.

Thought about putting him but I realized Bill Callahan is technically the OC, but he definitely still counts. Extra points to him for being an Ivy-educated, clueless-looking ginger.

I actually think Cameron has been pretty decent so far this year outside of the Philly game. Then again, whether that's an issue with playing away games and crowd noise, I'm not sure. But I think he's been decent so far.

Pees, I think has been kind of meh. I don't think he's been awful, but I don't think he's using our corners to their best of their abilities. The pass rush I don't believe is much his fault, except in the Philly game where we all but stopped sending more than 3 guys late in the game. I like that he continued sending pressure against New England late in the game, so maybe he learned from his mistake in Philly.

Yes, yes he is.

Jets fans are funny. Schotty was the worst OC ever and Wayne Hunter was the worst OT ever. And yet Schotty has been solid for us and Hunter has filled in at LT after Rodger's injury and held Clemons sackless and Peppers to like .5 sacks. He's been remarkably solid as a pass protector.

Bevell was always worth a few laughs with MN.

Lovie, isn't a coordinator but I've never seen anyone as bad at using challenges as Lovie.

Capers is either amazing or awful. You never know what to expect out of him on gameday, and I hate that.

I'm friends with Gunthers son, and he's a cool dude so he gets a pass.

Not a big fan of Marty Mornhinweg. I think Juan has shown vast improvements and I have no real complaints for him so far.

They may be playing well for the Rams thus far, but they were beyond awful for the Jets. Anyone who has watched the Jets in recent years can verify that.

Pretty sure Callahan isn't calling the plays though. Garrett maybe ivy league education, but he tries way to hard to "outsmart" everyone else.

To be fair, Wayne Hunter was terrible for the Jets. Plus isn't Jason Smith playing decently for them now? Looks like both just needed a change of scenery...
