I have compared 5 long term coaches in the league but added a twist. All but one has a top quality sure fire(or close to) Hall of Fame QB and compared their winning percentages with and without these QBs and the results are pretty interesting. Info source is www.fantasyfootballchallenge.com. CWP is career winning percentage AQBWP is winning percentage with another QB QQBWP is quality QB(Manning, Brady, Elway, Rivers) winning percentage Bill Belichick-widely known as a football "genius" and a god in Boston CWP 64% AQBWP 46% QQBWP 77% Tony Dungy CWP 67% AQBWP 56% QQBWP 76% Mike Shanahan CWP 59% AQBWP 54% QQBWP 73% Norv Turner CWP 47% AQBWP 40% QQBWP 63% When you compare their "true" winning percentage with Fisher's CWP of 56% then you understand why the "experts" call Fisher a great coach, because he makes the most of what he is given and he has been facing Peyton Manning twice a year for 12 years now. One also realizes that highly respected coaches may not completely deserve the accolades they are given since it's the QB that actually makes them look good. The stat about Belichick bothers me the most because he is so widely respected and is thought of as a "genius."
