It is all what you think of the coach. Not everyone agrees with others opinions, but as far as record goes I believe he is 6th all time.

His Carolina teams had ZERO talent. Buffalo has a ton of talent with no coach.

- His 1st year as head coach he won the SB
- His 2nd year as head coach he went to the NFC Championship
- His 4th year he went to the NFC Championship
- His 5th year he went to the NFC Championship
- His 6th year he won another SB

1989 - 14 2 * SB Win
1990 - 14 2 *NFC Championship game
1991 - 10 6
1992 - 14 2 *NFC Championship game
1993 - 10 6 *NFC Championship game
1994 - 13 3 *SB Win
1995 - 11 5
1996 - 12 4

1999 car - 8 8
2000 car - 7 9
2001 car - 1 15

He did have Bill Walsh bringing in a Hall-of-Famer every draft. I do think he is a good coach. However, he isn't as good as his records in San Fransisco would make you believe......

Alright. I can respect that opinion. But he is good enough to bring a team with talented players like BUffalo to a 11-5 record.

Put it this way. He brang the horrid 2000 Panthers to a 8-8 record :)

The only thing I'd worry about id I were a Buffalo fan is that he is extremely old. Health may become an issue, as well as his desire to keep on coaching, especially if he has a rocky start......

That is true. But if he can utilize the talent Buffalo has, Buffalo may have a very successful season. I would guess at least 10-6, if not 11-5.

My guess is that, there only hiring him for a 2-3 year deal. Nothing long.
