not to mention the '68 2 game SB postseason, the equivalent at best of a conference game, after competing in a 10 team inferior-talent pre-merger AFL.. Probably the most stilted "SB Championship" in history
"I worry about wins; I don't worry about meaningless fantasy #s"
(fine for RT17 but not when it comes to someone's HC and beloved QB)
Lombardi took over in GB in 1959 where they last had a winning season in 1947.
Lombardi took over in DC in 1969 where they last had a winning season in 1955.
Shula took over in Baltimore in 1963 where they last had a LOSIMG season in 1956.
IMO, when you put yourself out there sullying the greatest season of em all, you open yourself up to the questionable history of your own team. So the topic is blind homerism and hypocrisy. And yes I'm on topic: you can file this under "fanbois in glass houses shouldn't throw stones"
Matter of fact, compounding that farce of a season, Eubanks and Namath, 2 utterly undeserving members, parlayed that one game essentially into the HOF. Ridiculous
I am not sullying anything, I am speaking realistically about them. The only homer here is YOU, They were an all time great team but not even the best team in dolphins history let alone pro football history.
Weeb won the 2 most significant games in pro football HISTORY and has MORE championships than Shula including outcoaching him in SB III.
Weeb is a career .500 + 1 game coach. Even with the push towards the HOF he never would have received, if not for that 2 game farce of a postseason, he was a 71-77 coach for the jest. Plenty more deserving coaches than him still not in there.
