Wayne Carey has picked Carlton's Brendon Bolton as the current coach of the year.
Duck was quizzed on this season's best coach on Roast Duck on the Saturday Rub, and it certainly had him thinking.
"Very good question, very good question," he said.
After a bit of thought, he had an answer.
"(Brendon) Bolton," he said.
"I reckon what the Blues have done has been unexpected."
Carey suggested the Blues, who have won three of their first seven games this season, have surpassed expectation better than any other side.
"Think about expectation, BT," he said.
"People were saying they weren't going to win one. They've already won three."
