16. Mike McCarthy, Green Bay Packers
Considered by some to be the most overrated head coach in the game, it’s hard to argue that McCarthy has not ridden the coattails of one Aaron Rodgers throughout his tenure in Green Bay. To an extent, Rodgers is the NFC’s version of Tom Brady. Take the last two seasons in which Rodgers has missed substantial time, 2013 and 2017, respectively. The Packers posted a 10-7 record in games the future Hall of Famer started those two seasons. In games he was sidelined, Green Bay went 5-10-1. That speaks volumes about McCarthy’s importance (or lack thereof) to the Packers’ success.
