Great article on Vrabel and the Titans from Sando

I feel Vrabel knows Henry is the Brady of running backs and he loves the challenge of winning with Henry.  You can see how he loves his team in the way he speaks of them.  This is the reason many refer to him as Bellicheck 2.0.  It is the biggest difference between he and BB.  He speaks highly of his players while they are playing.  BB does it after they leave.  Only guy I ever heard him talk about when he played for him was LT.

Mularkey won 9 games against two cupcake schedules with all sorts of breaks, then won literally the luckiest playoff game in NFL history where everything had to go right for the Titans to win against

I'll just say this... in a league of 32 teams - the expectation that a team has to win the superbowl or it's a bust of a season is a pretty miserable way to spend your time as a fan.   5th b

He has a losing record without Brady, he wouldn't be considered a great coach

 

And I think he's the best ever

I guarantee over the 20 years he would make the playoffs a ton and be considered one of the best coaches in the league, even if it wasn't all in NE

 

My main point is there a very few coaches that are actual needle movers, those are the great ones. I think Belichick and Vrabel are two of them

He's coached 9 seasons without Brady.

 

He has 1 playoff win(made it as a wildcard and was blown out in round 2). 6 of those 9 seasons were losing records

 

I wouldn't guarantee too much

 

QB way more important than HC, even the greatest HC of all time

Agree with the sentiment but Belichick def is a major factor for a team.

 

In NE he has a winning record without Brady. When you take out that first year it's a pretty good winning record. And Brady wasn't really Brady until maybe 2005

 

His QB's during that time he has a winning record

 

 

Matt Cassell

Jimmy G/Jacoby Brissett

The Ghost of Cam Newton

Mac Jones

 

If he even found a decent QB in this hypothetical without Brady, he'd be making the playoffs year after year

They have a decent record with garbage QB play.

 

First of all they have literally beaten no one. But I'm not arguing BB isn't a great coach, he's the best ever. I'm arguing without a great QB he ain't doing shit. And they won't do anything this season either

Head coaches are much like running backs - some are definitely better than others, but even a good one can only do so much better than another depending on what's around them, and the best ones are the best mainly because they are good enough to keep getting work.

 

Look at all the hubbub for Jeff Saturday being hired and he goes out and wins his first game then almost beats the Eagles with the best record in football. Of course I take Vrabel over Mularkey but it's not like Iowa's facts are wrong even if you don't agree with his opinion.

 

GM on the other hand is the QB - more impactful - bc a talented roster always makes coaches/coordinators look like geniuses, who then get hired by awful teams and suddenly can't coach anymore.

I agree. Just pointing out the Pats have dogshit at Qb the past 2 years and they are still winning games. Can they compete in the playoffs with this formula? No. But they can in the regular season which is a testament to BB's coaching ability.

If you look at their schedule their opponents QBs are stinkier dog shit

Belichick won 2 rings as a DC prior to winning 6 as a HC/GM.  He drafted Tom Brady.  He's a good enough coach to know he needs a QB, and while he had one he maximized results.  He ain't Mike McCarthy winning one ring with Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers.

He's the greatest coach in NFL history, maybe all of sports
