Well done, that you've finished this epic undertaking, what are you going to do with the rest of your life? 

Thank you for organizing and running this and thank you to everyone who participated with high quality responses.  I learned
a lot about the great players of football and why they did/did not deserve to be called The Best at their position.  I think everyone
had fun with this too.

Thanks DKM. This was a great one. It fueled debates that required logic and reason, which are always the funnest to watch. I'm just happy atleast one Seahawk made the squad! I think this team is about as solid as you can get.  I would NEVER throw Deion Sanders over Dick Lane, and I'm not sure how that happened, but other than that, not one complaint. I'm gonna let everyone else battle it out for coach, but my vote goes to Mike Holmgren.  Wonder why?  HA!  Go Seahawks! Also just wanted to say good job to everyone. We put together one heck of a team!

Coach HAS to be Lombardi, as said above, the thing you get for winning everything (World Championship) is called Lombardi for a reason.  I'm being a homer but still, Vince was the greatest coach in football history.

I'd say one of the Bills (parcells or Walsh),but realistcly Barry Switzer could coach this team and they would be fine.

Great Job on "The Greatest Blog of All-Time"! I feel fortunate that I stumbled on to it the first week and followed it faithfully for the last three months. It was great that there were basically no petty squabbles till the RB and QB slots; Those being from newcomers who couldn't express their opinion without ripping on another. I think a lot of that had to do with the nature of your opening comments each week, and generally ignoring the occasional out-of-line poster.
For those of you who were here from the beginning (Charter members of the GTOAT Blog), I feel a certain affinity for you as kind of a fraternal brotherhood and look forward to seeing your comments on future CBS sites.

I hadn't planned this and did no homework (I didn't do any homework on any of my lists, though I did give them so forethought.) I couldn't let this go until putting together one last King of Bling! list...The Greatest Coach:
#1 - Paul Brown - Mr. Championship. He won more pro titles (7) than any coach ever. Perhaps the most innovative coach ever, even more than Gilman. Yes, Lombardi has a trophy named after him but Brown had a team named after him (Cleveland Browns)!
#2 - George Halas - Papa Bear is the man most responsible for there even being an NFL.
#3 - (Tie) Curly Lambeau (Lambeau Field) Vince Lombardi - Combined to make Green Bay on of the two most storied franchises in NFL history.
#4 - Don Shula - Super Bowl titles and appearances, 17-0, most wins, what more could you want.
#5 - Tom Landry - Innovative, ultra classy. Perhaps the greatest gentleman the game has ever known.

I know I went really old-school on #'s 2&3 but for alpahbetical Misc. figure post 1950: George Allen, Weeb Ewbank, Joe Gibbs, Sid Gilman, Bud Grant, Marv Levy, John Madden, Chuck Noll, Bill Parcells, allie Sherman, Hank Stram, Bill Walsh.
