1) Erskine Russell. Started program. Won National Titles in  85,86, and first ever 15-0 season in 89. Retired and his boys won again in 1990. RIP.
2) Paul Johnson. World's Greatest offense. Back to back titles. in 99,2000. Now with GT.
3) Monte Kiffin, Greatest Defense. Sad he bailed with four games left in the season. Might have to let that sink in more and replace him.

Mine are in this order...

1) Don Shula...For what he did for Florida with the Dolphins when we didn't have a team
2) Tony Dungy...For what he did for this franchise and the Foundation he left
3) Jon Gruden...For building upon a Foundation and bringing home the Superbowl and reworking through all the crap that Rich McKay left us...

1. Landry
2. Walsh
3. Gibbs

Champions, innovators, consistent winners

Want us to get a coach in that league someday, hope Raheem is that guy.

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

It was a lot easier to build consistent winners when you didn't have free agency. Gibbs found that out his second go around.

No, Gibbs found out what having a bad owner meant. Synder is a screw up compared to Jack Kent Cook.  

I also disagree about consistency, the Eagles, Colts and Pats have managed it and I'm not sure you had 3 consistent types like that during the pre-FA period. The teams are weaker overall now but I'm not sure consistency is harder.

Most coaches would love to have an owner with a bottomless checkbook like Snyder. Has he ever said no when a coach asks him to sign a player?

As far as consistency, the Eagles and Colts have just 1 super bowl victory between them in the FA era. I hardly call that consistent champions. Yes, the Pats are the exception to the norm and their organization and coaches should be commended for that.

Gruden - Got us that Super Bowl win we kept missing out on and he's entertaining as hell.

Parcells - For some reson I tend to like the teams he puts together, theres something to be said for not sticking around to padding records and instead taking on the challenge of rebuilding teams instead.

Walsh - some of my favorite players and football memories come from Walsh coached teams.

John Galt?

Shula-went to the Superbowl with 2 different franchises, 4 different QBs and exuded class the whole way.
Holgrim- took 2 different franchises to the big dance.
Dungy- turned an NFL joke into a perennial winner.

Honorable mention: **CENSORED** Vermeil, Dan Reeves, Gruden

I can't say I have a third, but my top-2 are easy.

1. Bill Walsh - he saw the game differently than everyone else.  I love the quip about him at a scouting camp one year: he was looking at the top quarterbacking prospects, and asked a few of them to showcase their throwing ability.  They all took a hard dropback, thrust off their back leg, and drilled the ball into the target.  Walsh said, "Yeah, that's good, but it wasn't real pretty.  Do it again.  But softer this time."

2. **CENSORED** Vermeil - arguably the most honest coach in NFL history.  The guy was an offensive genius, and claimed to be able to build playoff teams with only a good left tackle, running back, and quarterback.

Both were brilliant, brilliant coaches who cared deeply about their players.  They were more interested in teaching their players how to be good people than good football players.  They both held mandatory classes several times a season on accounting and money management.  And very few of their players (fewer for Walsh than Vermeil) were ever in trouble off the field.

And both went to San Jose State.  Weird.
