    1. Paul Brown. His impact on the game is so far reaching it's unimaginable. From his innovations (messenger guards, vertical passing strategies) to his his insane coaching tree (all but three SBs have featured at least one head coach that could trace his lineage back to Brown.) Brown's disciples include Don Shula, Bill Walsh and Chuck Noll.

    2. Tom Landry. As much as I hated him I gotta give it up to the man who invented the 4-3 and is the father of all modern defensive theory.

    3. Vince Lombardi. The Packer sweep, enough said.

    Right now I have no idea who I would pick as the 3rd.

    Walsh is my #1 because no one has more impact on the modern NFL than he does.

    Paul Brown is my #2 because he was the Walsh before Walsh.

    Tom Landry gets my #3, but Lombardi should get some talk too.

    Walsh and Brown are my favorites.

    1. VINCE LOMBARDI. theres a reason why the trophy is named after him
    2. TOM LANDRY. 20 consecutive winning seasons. 20 career playoff wins. invented 4-3 defense, flex offense. and the list goes one
    3. PAUL BROWN. one losing season in 17 years.


    present head coaches
    1. joe gibbs-hall of famer all ready
    2. belichick- coaching a dynasty in the salary cap era. no other coach can claim that.
    3. shanahan. 2 super bowl championships gets him the 3rd place.

    I know people may not agree with me but I really think Parcells should be on the list. He turned 3 seperate teams from perennial losers into winning organizations (3 superbowls (2 wins) and one AFC championship that I think everyone remembers. I know alot of people dont like him but he is that good. Each team he took over had terrible years prior to his arrival and then had either a superbowl or Championship appearance soon after. How many coaches have done that?

    Walsh
    Landry
    Lombardi

    Walsh has done too much for todays game to not be listed at the top. The impact he had on todays game is incredible. Landry is going probably going to be knocked a bit for not winning as much as maybe he could have in the Super Bowl or playoffs, but his track record over such a long period will never be duplicated and they did some really innovative stuff, especially on defense. Had they gone 4-1 in the SB hed be considered the greatest coach ever without question. When he got fired it was a real end of an era for the NFL. Lombardi won some of the most famous games of all time. I think you could make a strong argument for Paul Brown as well.

    1. Vince Lombardi
    2. Paul Brow
    3. Tom Landry

    Usual consensus in the all time draft is between those three

    Walsh was a disciple of Brown. Brown is number 1.

    Rerporter: "Coach McKay, what do you think of your offenses execution?"

    McKay: "I'm all in favour of it!"
