How could you say Gruden? He is the very reason the Bucs won the Superbowl. They had Tony Dungy for years and he couldn't take them to the Superbowl. The Bucs were talented but mentally soft under Dungy. Gruden gave them an attitude and much needed toughness not to mention intelligent playcalling particularly in the Superbowl itself to help themselves to a victory. Gruden gave the Bucs that toughness and competitive edge to go beyond the NFC championship game. Both Keyshawn and Warren Sapp admitted as much. Under Dungy, the offese was inconsistent and basically disorganized. Gruden gave their offense some form.
If I had to nominate anyone aside from Switzer, it would be Dick Vermeil
. The guy just got flat out lucky. He was 4-12 in the prior season so you can't pretend that his Superbowl winning team was a part of some master plan. It was pure luck! You think Vermeil planned for his starter to get injured while a former Arena League backup becomes the MVP and leads them to a Superbowl. Kurt Warner and his arena league style and cavalier attitude fit in perfectly with the offensive talent on that team. Vermeil hasn't done anything in KC although the Chiefs are mentioned as a potential Superbolw team each season despite falling far short of that each year.
