Mt. NFL Coach Rushmore

Papa BearThe proposition: say we’re doing a Mt. Rushmore for pro football coaches. We need four faces. It seems to me that three of them are obvious: George Halas, Vince Lombardi, and Bill Walsh. So, who’s the fourth?

Some nominees (and you’re going to have to stretch to make a case for anybody not on this list):

(Coach; Record; Pct.; Titles)

  • John Madden; 112-39-7; .731; 1
  • Don Shula; 347-173-6; .665; 2
  • Tony Dungy; 136-74; .648; 1
  • Joe Gibbs; 171-101; .629; 3
  • Bill Belichick; 142-85; .626; 3
  • Curly Lambeau; 229-134-22; .623; 6
  • Paul Brown; 170-108-6; .609; 3 (NFL only – numbers were 222-112-9;.660; 7 when you include AAFL record)
  • Tom Landry; 270-178; .601; 2
  • Chuck Noll; 209-156-1; .572; 4
