This should bring some good discussion

We got to get better at doing something, and that is what we have to set our focus on and that is something to get better at. That\\\\\\\'s what we are trying to do right now.

It's an honor to have been a Buc fan when he was here.

It was from NFL Network.  Here's the list.

1. Vince Lombardi
2. **CENSORED** Vermeil
3. John Gruden
4. Marty Schottenheimer
5. George Allen
6. Bill Cowher
7. Bill Parcells
8. Hank Stram
9. Sam Wyche
10. Bum Phillips


Glad to see Wyche on that list as well.   I always thought he got a bum deal in Tampa.   He was a good coach.

Motivational at what? Schottenheimer is motivational? At what choking and dying? I could basically say the same thing about Gruden but he found the nut one time.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

Gruden could motivate a winning team, but he couldn't motivate when things were down.  I don't think he belongs on that list.

Why do you necessarily have to be wrong just because a few million people think you are?

Bucs were 9-3 until Monte turned traitor.   If Raheem starts out 9-3 this year, I'll say he's a better motivator than Gruden.

Great example of what I was speaking of.  Once all the business with Monte started Gruden was incapable of motivating the team to keep going.

Gruden is a hell of a coach...I think were going to realize after the next couple of years just how good he was with what he worked with.  

Bring back GRUDEN!!!

I actually like this list.  Gruden motivated that first Bucs team to win a Super Bowl in year one.  He also rebuilt the Raiders quickly and made them a contender - so much so that the year he left his old team also made the Super Bowl.  The other coaches are no slouches either.  I am a little surpriised by Bum Philips at number 10.  I would think Tom Landry would be higher than him.  I love Marty as he brought so many teams to the playoffs no matter where he was.  Even Sam Wyche was an amazing coach.  People forget but he got the Bucs to 7-9 from horrible within three years in Tampa, and drafted some of the key defenders that became the cornerstone of the franchise for years to come.

Ya, but that all would have changed with a new year.  How often does your defensive coordinator leave you to go coach with his son in the middle of the year?   Morris' secondary players didn't seem to be motivated by Morris those last games either.

Who is Gruden motivating this football season?
