Oh I disagree. Kyle, you bragged about the 'Boys of the 60's and said they were great. I asked for proof and you gave me Landry's overall record.They were great in the 60's. That's when Landry started succeeding was in the mid 60's and it lasted all the way through the mid 80's due to what PitSteel said...he was great at looking to the future and always had a plan in place for when his players got too old.
You can't say the Cowboys of the 60's were all that great - they didn't win a single Lombardi.You don't have to win a Lombardi to be considered great. Wake up, the world is NOT black and white. Dan Marino was great and no Lombardis. The point is Landry always fielded great teams, whether it be because of his great eye for talent/innovations/etc. Noll had his 8 years in the sun with that ridiculously talented team he had from '72-79 but what about before the super bowl years? After? Nothing. He was mediocre at best outside of those 8 years.
It's no reach. He's nowhere near HOF worthy but for his time he was good. Better than this Malone guy you mention whom you claim to have a qb rating of 93 when in reality it was 62. Big difference there.
. And yes, Danny White was something to sneeze at. He wasn't that great either. You're reaching here.
So since your point was that Landry had more talent, and mine is that Noll still beat him - I'd say that Noll did a better job of coaching. Think about it: Noll beat Landry with a LESS talented squad. Right? OK then, advandage Noll. If you consistantly beat another coach with a less talented team, you're a better coach. Thanks for playing.So is that how you come up with your list of all time great coaches? You look at the win/loss record against other coaches and that's the deciding factor? Wow. So like I said, Switzer was greater than Cowher. I never knew that.
Dungy credits Noll, that said there is no doubt Noll and Carson collaborated on it.They collarborated on it once Carson got there in '72, but you can't say that Noll came up with the system, and that's what's important. Landry came up with this system when he was D coordinator for the Giants.
For the record I would rank Landry higher than Noll as well. But to act as if Noll just showed up and did nothing in terms of the game is a stretch.Well that's the thing. Nobody is acting like Noll just showed up and was gifted a great team. Hell I said he's a top ten coach of all time, but someone from your very fandom took offense to that somehow.
Maybe because you try to deflect away from what he brought. By saying things like Carson deserves credit for the Steel curtain/Tampa 2 not Noll. Can't really have it both ways.Giving Noll credit for the Tampa 2 would be like giving Paul Brown credit for the west coast offense while Walsh was developing it in Cincinnati.
By saying things like Carson deserves credit for the Steel curtain/Tampa 2 not Noll.This coming from a guy who says Bill Belichick deserves the credit for Super Bowls won when Bill Parcells was the head coach.
Actually my bad Axe can't even say that about Noll/Carson I forgot Carson left in 77 so Noll won two without him.Means zero. What, did Noll abandon that defense when Carson left?
