Smart Box Series: Coaching Down The Stretch
By Marc Lawrence
The final four weeks of the NFL season are tantamount to the stretch run of a Graded Stakes horse race. It’s where all big races are won and lost.
It’s been said that if you don’t have the horse, you won’t win the race. For the most part this adage is right on the money. More time often than not, though, the ride the horse gets by his jockey is what puts the team in the winner’s circle. It’s why good jockeys are almost always atop quality horses in big races.
The same holds true for head coaches in the NFL. They too are the pilots, guiding their team to the wire, with game plans designed for success or failure… whichever the case may be.
From a profit and loss standpoint, listed below are the BEST and WORST current head coaches and their NFL career ATS records during Games 13-16 – minimum four occurrences (current team in parenthesis). All results are ATS (Against The Spread).
Home: KUBIAK (Hou) 10-4
Away: SMITH M (Atl) 6-2
Favorite: KUBIAK (Hou) 5-1
Dog: McCARTHY (GB) 7-0
Home: GARRETT (Dal), MULARKEY (Jax) 1-3
Away: WHISENHUNT (Az) 0-8
Fav: CARROLL (Sea) 1-6
Dog: WHISENHUNT (Az) 3-6
