The 20 Best NFL Head Coaches of All-Time. Seemed like a pretty straight forward assignment title. Then I started thinking about all of the crazy fans that will be screaming for my head on a platter (Mike Ditka fans will never be happy unless he is number one - but he won't be at that lofty rank). A thankless job but somebody has to do it.
There is no formula here for who is placed where. All of the coaches on this list are noteworthy and have been winners. They all have been able to find ways to win year after year, and have longevity on their side as well. This list is a tribute to each of the coaches for their career and their accomplishments.
Pictured here is Don Shula vs. Marv Levy. So that means all the Dolphins vs Bills games headed by these two Hall of Fame coaches should have been remembered as classic affairs. We will go back in history for some of the coaches on this list, so if you aren't familiar with all of these names, then you should be.
Who made the list and why? While conducting research for this article, I placed consideration on the following factors - wins, championships (NFL, AFL, NFC, AFC), longevity, Hall of Fame, and what they did for the game. Your results may vary, and probably will.
If you feel your choice didn't make the list, please be prepared to give some reasonable evidence as to why they should have been included. Thanks for any and all feedback.
