    Now I know many of you will go crazy praising Landry but Belichick's accomplishments are becoming undeniable, he he continually built good teams for over a decade now. He has replaced great players time and time again with ease with the prowess in the draft room. He has shown on the field that he is unparalleled and he has shown that he can replace a key player, no matter who they are, without trouble.


    I truly believe that it is just a matter of a few years until he is unanimously viewed as the greatest coach of all time. So when does he officially become the greatest coach of all time in the minds of fans? or if he even will. He's already top 3 and if you try to deny that you really are just being ignorant.

    Greatest all time? Not sure about that, but a good coach for sure

    There is a list of maybe 4 people that can be compared to him, and he's not done yet.

    He's top 5, but not greatest ever and never will be considered that unless he wins like 5 or 6 Super Bowls.

    If he wins another superbowl he will be in the conversation.
    If he wins 2 or more he will stand alone on top.

    He needs to win a SB w/o Brady IMO.
    And w/o cheating.

    Or until he wins something without Tom Brady as his QB.

    Failure in Cleveland. Started awful in New England. Then Brady arrived and he turned into the GOAT.

    Zero playoff wins since defenses were able to adjust their nomenclature for their playcalls.

    Spoken like someone who's NFL knowledge started in 2000.

    Do any of these names ring a bell:

    Paul Brown
    Don Shula
    Chuck Noll
    Curly Lambeau
    George Halas
    Bill Walsh
    Vince Lombardi

    He's not close to the accomplishments of anyone listed above. And I left out quite a few others, such as Landry, Madden, Gillman and Allen, whom I would also put above Belichick.

    Top ten, maybe, but doubtful.

    Top five, laughable.

    Greatest of all time???? Put the pipe down.

    I'm lazy. Can I get a copy and paste of your research?

    I agree with the winning without Tom Brady part. However not the insinuation that he is not a good coach and that he owes all his wins to Brady.

    he is a great coach.

    no doubt.

    the man knows how to churn a roster and draft very well year after year.

    he has a great understanding of this game.

    when he and coughlin retire...we will lose two of the last old school coaches that are left in the nfl.

    I think he's a good coach but I also think Brady may make him look better than he is.

    If he can win big without Brady I'd put him right up there with anyone. Until he does, he's a good coach who won with the greatest QB and didn't do anything without him.

    If he's still fielding strong contenders a decade after Brady retires, we can talk.

    I mean, I'm not making it up. He failed and got fired in Cleveland. He went 5-11 his first year in New England. Started his 2nd year either 1-2 or 1-3 (not looking it up), then Bledsoe went down and gave way to Brady.

    He's had the midas touch ever since.
