Is Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia the worst coach in the league? Let’s examine.

There are two hallmarks of a great coach: their in-game management, the ability to make their team more than the sum of their parts; and their man management, the ability to lead a team over the course of a season. Bill Belichick is the best coach of his era because of this. He is of course one of the greatest strategic minds in the history of the sport.
