Bud Grant and Bill Parcells seemed pretty good, and the guy the trophy is named after was solid.

I totally agree with that list. Those three coaches won more football games and championships than most coaches could ever dream of. In addition, these three coaches legacies have endured to this day.

Paul Brown
Vince Lombardi

Chuck Noll I'd give a five or six.

George Halas and Earl "Curly" Lambeau. Two true rivals and pioneer and (I believe) the only 6-time NFL champions as a coaches.

In no particular order:

Halas
"Piccolo and Sayers, you're rooming together."

Landry
"When you want to win a game, you have to teach. When you lose a game, you have to learn."

Lombardi
"Winning isn't everything. It's the only thing."

I was going to mention Lombardi and Brown.

Not Shula though... I can't remember him turning anything around.

And Noll, he took a horrible team to 4 championships. He was behind a lot of the draft picks and even he did have great players, he took them all the way. He deserves consideration. And yes, I'm a Steeler fan... but I still think he did a heck of a job.

Also the thing about Chuck Noll is after those super bowl years from 1974 to 1979 he still put a competitive club on the field. In 1984 the Steelers went to the AFC Championship,after beating heavily favored Denver 24-17 in the divisional playoff round. Then in 1989 he went to the playoffs again, losing in the divisional playoffs to Denver.

He didn't leave an empty cupboard for Bill Cowher, at least not from what I remember.

You got to be kidding me Shula not turning any team around,what did he do for the Miami Dolphins. The only team to go undefeated since the start of the Super Bowl. Miami had not had a winning season before he came only winning 11 games in 3 seasons,whereas Shula won that many in the first season he came there.Went to the Super Bowl 3 straight years almost 4 a last second pass by Stabler(Oakland) kept them from going.

If they had not last their 3 superstars(Csonka,Kiik and Warfield)to the WFL,the fate of Pittsburgh would have been different.

Shula was only the winningest coach with 347 victories.
