Can't argue too much with this.

I'm glad one outlet got it correct and didn't just make it the Suprise Team of the Year award.

Not really sure what exactly he did to warrant this over John Harbaugh, Pete Carroll, Bruce Arians (or Chuck Pagano), or Mike Shanahan...but okay Laughing

Jim Harbaugh , Bruce Arians or Pete Carroll should be the coach or coaches of the year.

Well deserved.

My favorite part of watching Mike Smith on the sidelines is when the Falcons are squandering a big lead in the 4th quarter and he looks up at the scoreboard with the exact same expression as my 7 year old after he takes a nasty fall and is trying with all his might to be brave and hold back the tears.

That makes him COTY? Really?

Harbaugh fires his OC week 14 is in the Superbowl, also having the 27th ranked defense surrendering injuries throughout the year to his #1 CB, ROLB, MLB, MLB#2, MLB#3 and also Haloti Ngata.

Carroll plays a 3rd round rookie QB over a FA QB who signed a nice contract and goes just as far as the Falcons.

Arians and Pagano take a 2 win team to the playoffs.

Idk, I just don't think Mike Smith did anything this year that wasn't expected of him. Maybe that's just me, though.

I mean, COTY isn't based on the post season, plus I don't see why Harbaugh would get COTY anyways.... Smith won the most games, that's pretty deserving....

So if COTY goes to the coach with the most wins, why doesn't John Fox get it? Or BB? I mean I just don't understand, beyond "well he won X amount of games" what exactly Smith did to deserve "Coach of The Year"....

And just for comparison purposes:

http://www.nfl.com/standings?category=league

Broncos had the same amount of wins, won 11 straight games, allowed fewer points, scored more points, were perfect in their (weak) division, and had a better conference record. Plus the whole Peyton Manning situation...so why does Smith deserve it over, if ANYONE, John Fox?

I like Jim. But you have an All-Universe QB and Alex Smith starts 10 games. Plus he allowed the kicker to cost them games and are in a situation where he could potentially cost them everything.

The other option was Billy Cundiff...

Kaepernick was still learning and alex Smith was winning games. I think Harbaugh was raising Kaep's confidence by giving him 3-4 plays each game in the 1st 10 weeks. I was really surprised how mush faster Kaep's release is because it used to be very bad
