"Jim has a slight edge over John, if only because of his ability to get the best out of players who didn't perform under the old regime," Elliot Harrison, who put together the list for NFL.com, rationalized.

Now he's dealing with big expectations, as the 49ers are once again considered favorites in the NFC. Winning 24 regular-season games and making a Super Bowl in his first two seasons as head coach is truly special, especially considering where the franchise was before he arrived."
