Poll Question 12/03/14: Name that coach


If you could choose one Super Bowl-era coach for your football team, who would it be?

Vince Lombardi — A two-time NFL Coach of the Year, he led the Green Bay Packers to five NFL championships in seven years, including the first two Super Bowls; won six NFL titles overall and produced a 9-1 playoff record.

Don Shula — A our-time NFL Coach of the Year, he had only two losing seasons in his 36-year career of coaching in the NFL; won more games than any NFL coach; went to a record six Super Bowls and produced the league’s only perfect season (17-0) in 1972.

Joe Gibbs — A two-time NFL Coach of the Year, he led the Washington Redskins to eight division titles and three Super Bowl wins in his first stint with the club. More impressively, he won those three Super Bowls with three different quarterbacks.

Bill Walsh — He took over a San Francisco 49ers franchise that was 2-14 before his arrival and in his last eight years there led it to six division titles and three Super Bowls. He also popularized the West Coast offense that is prevalent throughout the league today.

Bill Belichick — He’s the longest tenured active head coach, winning 73 percent of his regular-season games with New England where he’s been to five Super Bowls, winning three, and where he was named NFL Coach of the Year three times.

    I was once quoted in the papers with this comment when Coach Gibbs came back to DC for the second time: “IT’S LIKE THE FOOTBALL GODS SENT THEIR ONLY SON TO REDEEM US FROM FOOTBALL HELL!”
    I think the world or Joe Gibbs, the Man…more than his Super Bowl feats and his NASCAR trophies, the thing about this man is his great heart. For 20+ years now he has operated a dormitory school for wayward kids who have been in trouble with the law or others in the DC area. His “Youth For Tomorrow Foundation” gives these kids a second chance and puts them in a school where they must produce or they go into the penal system. Coach Gibbs saves 80% or more of these young people to the point they get a high school diploma and have a new start on life. They get support in finding decent employment as well. I really love this man! SPIGGY HOGETTE

    Bill Walsh he completely change the game and is the only coach on here who has won all of his championship with out a lost. Also teams are still using his system to win in today’s era.

    No question, it’s Joe Gibbs. In his first tenure with the ‘Skins, he always made great adjustments that allowed the team to overcome deficits and seal the victory. He kept a solid team of coaches around him; maintained the respect of players, team management, fans, and the media. That’s how he won the Super Bowl three different times with three different quarterbacks.
