    It will be interseting to get both BB and TB's input after they are both retired.



    It is a fascinating dynamic. At this point, no one will ever know what their careers would be like seperately...

    though there were exceptions almost every great coach had a great QB and vice versa



    That is why I bring up Joe Gibbs a lot. I still think he does not get enough credit for winning three Super Bowls with three different QBs. That is a feat that will probably never ever be repeated.

    That is an exceptional feat but to be fair he did have a tremendous O-line and very good defenses during his tenure.




    well almost every successful team has those things...since when does having those things take away from a coach's achievements? bellichick didn't? noll? lombardi? walsh?

    i agree i think Gibbs is often overlooked

    I do not think it does at all. There a some teams where the QB gets a lot more of the credit (I think people look at Elway more than Shanahan - even though Elway was a smaller part of the offense when the Broncos finally won).

    Like it or not, most Championship coaches and QBs are tied together especially if the had more than a brief run together.

    When you talk about winning with 3 different QB's it helps to have arguably one of the best offensive lines of all time. 

    BTW, I didn't say it wasn't a great feat I said just the opposite but obviously your reading comprehension skills are a tad deficient.



    He did have great offensive lines and defenses... That was part of what made such a great coach. Most coaches need a great QB to win (especially multiple championships).

    I believe that Bostic, Jacoby and Art Monk are the only starters on all three teams. I am pretty sure the defense and 11 different starters by the time they won the last Super Bowl.

    Bostic, Jacoby and Grimm I beleive were on all 3, Mckenzie & May may have been on 2 and I think schelreth was on at least 1. Not sure about the D.

    As I said in any event quite an accomplishment.



    I just took a minute to look it up. Bostic and Jacoby were starters on all three, Grimm was still there for the third, but no longer a starter.  McKenzie was there for the 1st and 2nd while May was for the 2nd and 3rd. Schlereth was there for the 3rd only.

    I double checked the defense, Monte Coleman was on the only player on the roster for all three that I could find (Darrell Green's rookie year was after the first Super Bowl), but Coleman was only a starter in the 2nd of the three.

    Unfortunately for him, I think Gibbs tarnished his legacy when he tried to comeback after the Spurrier debacle in Washington. 

    Good lesson in how important the offensive line can be to long-term success though...

    Re: Interesting Take from a National Reporter

    Hard to believe it's been 13 seasons together already (time flies when it's been this fun). I wish we could get another 13 years of the greatness we've had over the last 13 years. I'm just glad I got a chance to watch this - I always hear about how great the Celtics were with Bird or the Bruins with Orr...now I'll get a chance to tell my kids about how great this Tom Brady guy was.

    Hope we can get a few more seasons out of these two...maybe win one more.
