Question Marv Levy?

After Coach Gibbs came back I read an artical on nfl.com written by Marv and he went on to say that Gibbs is a proven winner and that he will be fine in DC.

He also went on to say that after seeing coaches like Parcells, Vermile, and Gibbs come back, that he too would like another go around, but the phones are not ringing.

So my question is this, given the fact that they lost 4 SB's, was Levy a good coach (to get them to the SB 4 times) ? Or was his Bills just too talented in a not so talented AFC?

4 SB's in a row is a huge accomplishment. Levy was definitely a very good coach.

I think his phone isn't ringing because of how old he is.

I'm pretty sure he's in the HOF already. He has an impressive track record aside from his stint with the Bills. He won two CFL titles in five years with Montreal.

And, interesting to note, he replaced Dick Vermeil as Redskins special teams coach back in the early 1970s. I think Vermeil might have been the first ever special teams coach in the NFL after George Allen introduced the idea right?

Yeah he is old, but how old is Vermile? And Gibbs is not what you would call young. I think that he was a good coach, I mean you never heard a player talk bad about him and he had great personal skills. You can have a great offensive or deffensive philosiphy but if you cant get players to buy in to it or if you cant communicate it to them then it can never come to be. His players never questioned him. Also why not for a coordinator position something like that?

But, the coaches do not usually participate in up-downs with the team.

Doesn't matter how old his body is, matters how old he is in his own mind. If he has it in him to come back and coach a football team with the type of tenacity that it takes, he will be successful.

the team that takes him needs the best coordinator in the world as an insurance policy... its a big risk that could cost millions if he has health issues midseason, and its not like the stress of running a crappy 500$mill team back to respectability helps that any...

maybe as a consultant or assistant coach, i doubt he'd be hired as head just based on the risks involved.

Marv was an excellent coach with an excellent GM in Bill Polian.

Smootsmack you must be a little younger then me. Marv LEvy was the 1st special teams coach for the redskins in 1971 under George Allen. Which makes him also the 1st in the NFL. This particular staff went on to become quite famous. Mike McCormick who built the Seahawks and the CArolina Panthers and was also Head Coach of the Colts and Eagles. (NEighbor of Mine Growing Up), Charley Winter (Weeb Eubanks Son-Inlaw), Ted MArchibroda famous Colts coach, Boyd Dowler (Packers Pro Bowl Reciever) and someone not so famous in the NFL but a huge part of the Redskin history is Lavar "Torgy" Torgenson, one of the best all time defensive line coaches.

George Allen allways took credit for all of those punts we used to block but MArv was the archetict of those great special teams. Boy when was the last time we had at least 2 punts blocked in a season?
