Congrats to Coach Arians who had tough circumstances but still led his team to a 9-3 record.

Yep, this is amazing but hard to argue.

Congrats to coach Arians being named AP NFL coach of the year 2012. Glad to have him on board.

Shouldn't he have to be a head coach to win. Not a replacement for a good part of the season. Good for him though doesn't look bad on the resume should he need it again in the future

I dont agree with this selection, though I cant complain. Its not conventional, that is for sure. I think Leslie Frazier, Jim Harbaugh and Arians had the best chance at winning it. Though Frazier probably didnt get much votes, but what he did last year with a rebuilding team was exceptional.

Sure, but he had a tough job and ended up leading his team to a 9-3 record. He coached for majority of the season, but I guess I can see the other side of the argument.

I should add, Arians did a great job, so i cant complain. Taking that team and doing what he could to get them back into the playoffs after the mess that was 2011, great job overall.

Well it's called "coach of the year" not "head coach of the year"

The issue I have is... Indianapolis just wasn't a good team. No different than '10 Chiefs or '08 Dolphins. They somehow got to the postseason and then got beat down. He was a nice candidate. But I don't believe he was actually Coach of the Year.

True that I guess. Not saying he didn't do a great job. Just think a head coach who coached the full season should get it. I feel pagano did just as good of a job with the team when he was there as Arians did.
