So, I want you to think about all the things that make a great football team.
Go ahead, I'll give you a minute.
Now certainly defense matters, they win championships as the old adage goes.
You need to have play-makers to move the ball.
However, the one thing people always harp on is the play of the quarterback.
The quarterback is your leader, your general on the field. In college football, they do not need to be a prototypical passer to be a dynamic offensive force. They simply need to be someone that can make plays and be reliable down the stretch.
Of course, none of this matters if the guy calling the plays is a moron. The coach has to have a great game plan, he must be able to motivate his players, he must be able to recruit the talent necessary to be successful.
As much as we talk about coaches and quarterbacks, rarely do we try to combine the two entities in an attempt to evaluate teams and their chances for success in 2010.
Sure, a great coach and quarterback do not guarantee success by themselves, but it's a real fine place to start.
This article attempts to rank the best overall duo of a talented, proven quarterback and accomplished coach.
Let the debate begin!
