    You quote my 2-in-14 post and immediately begin talking 12 teams.

    And I'm supposed to be impressed with your math? Dumb phuck.

    Belichick and it isn't close. He hasn't had the same core of players for a decade like most on that list have had, constantly moving players in and out.

    Point made about Gibbs on the list is a good one. You also need to consider JImmy Johnson, Tom Flores, and Tom Coughlin too.

    Correct assertion not putting Tony Dunghole anywhere near this list.

        As a coordinator or head coach, Belichick has been in 10 of 52 Super Bowls. He was the assistant head coach for an 11th (Patriots vs. Packers), along with being the losing head coach in four AFC Championship games. So in 15 of the 52 seasons ending with a Super Bowl, he's been within one game or better of the Super Bowl nearly 1/3 of the time as the head coach, assistant head coach, or coordinator.

          That's like saying you disagree that 2 + 2 = 4.

          fck the math,. Football was better with fewer teams and no mercenaries chasing $$$ all the time. Better for the players? Maybe not but much more watchable. Seeing the Colts play the Bears or Cleveland play the Packers on a Sunday afternoon in 1966 was pure joy. Lenny Moore, Unitas, Gayle Sayers. No pussy football in those days.

            The argument that more teams makes the odds of being in the final game lower is pretty irrelevant. We're talking about coaches. Each one was coaching in his era (except Halas, who coached across several eras), and had the challenges that era brought. Yes, the players were smaller and slower. On both sides of the ball. But we're not asking 'who was the best defensive lineman.' We're asking 'who was the best coach.' And each coach had to deal with similar players on both sides of the ball.

            The fantasy that the Super Bowl is something special is, well, Super Stupid. It's the last game in the NFL. Yes, there was a time for just a few years when it was a competition between to leagues, but that was XLVII years ago (or something like that). Now it's just the championship game, the same game the Bears and Giants played in sneakers years ago.

            The 1968 Baltimore Colts was the absolute pinnacle of my NFL interest. Johnny U, Earl Morrall, Tom Matte, Bubba Smith, Billy Ray Smith, Ordale Braise (sp), Mike Curtis. God I loved that team. Still can’t believe they lost to the Jets in the SB. Also loved the 1969 Raiders with Daryl Lamonica throwing to Warren Wells and Fred Billetnikoff. Really loved pro football in that era through the 1970’s. Dolphins, Raiders, Vikings, Steelers, Chiefs, Redskins....what a decade! Real mean sonsabitches who had bad intentions when they played.

              Those were the great days of the NFL. Not many teams so the talent was not diluted and you knew who was on your team. Daryl Lamonica had a great name but Steve Stonebreaker had the best name
              Thornton Steve Stonebreaker was a professional American football linebacker in the National Football League. He played seven seasons for the Minnesota Vikings, the Baltimore Colts, and the New Orleans Saints. Son Mike also played in the NF

                As the season got tight at the end, the play really got intense. Players were mean for a reason. If I remember correctly, the average NFL player made about $25,000 in the mid 60's. The player's share for losing in the championship something like $4,000. Player's share for wining something like &7,000. Make the championship and you're playing for more than a quarter of a year's salary. Those were some absolutely slobberknocking games.

                  Thanks, Coach. I laughed out loud when I read the name "Steve Stonebreaker". You hit that nail absolutely right on the head. Best name ever. And, yes, those WERE the great days of the NFL.

                      Most players in the 60’s had real off season jobs. Even through some of the 70’s.

                        I always loved Don Shula. Got to 5 Super Bowls and were it not for a lunatic owner he probably would have won 1 or 2 more with his 70’s crew and 1 or 2 with his 80’s group. The Dolphins could have been the ultimate dynasty. Shula was great though. I filmed a NFL/United Way commercial with Larry Csonka once with my Pop Warner football team I was coaching. He had many stories about Shula. I real love/hate relationship.
