Would Joe Gibbs Be Considered The Greatest Coach If He Won SB 18?

If he would have beat the Raiders (I still can't believe how bad they played), he would have 4 superbowls instead of 3. He's already the only coach to had ever win a SuperBowl with 3 different QB's. A feat, imo, that already makes Gibbs the greatest. And I'm not just saying that because I'm a Skins fan. Just about every great coach won SuperBowl with great QB's. Gibbs won with Theisman, Williams and Rypien. None of those guys will ever make the hall.

But anyway,back to the original question, if Gibbs would have won SB 18, would he be in the discussion with Lombardi, Shula, Noll and Walsh as the greatest coach of all time?

You mean he's not best? j/k. Is Shula really that much better than Gibbs?

No. But he's always considered one of the best. I believe the undefeated season has a lot to do with it.

Eh 3 QB's and 3 RB's in 4 Super Bowl Wins doesn't have the same ring to it as 3 QB's and 3 different RB's in 3 Super Bowl victories.

Re: Would Joe Gibbs Be Considered The Greatest Coach If He Won SB 18?

Too me he is the best ever. He won 3 SB with one good QB (Joey T.) and 2 mediocre QB's. His 1983-84 team set an NFL record at that time for most points ever scored in a season, 3X 1K yard receivers, etc. His best coaching years were not winning SB's, they were his last year on Gibbs I, almost beat the 49ers in SF in the playoffs with an injury decimated team and took the Redskins to the playoffs after the tragic death of Sean Taylor during Gibbs II. Bill Walsh gets all the accolades for running the Paul Brown offense. Joe Gibbs in my biased opinion was the best coach ever!!!!!! You can throw in NASCAR success and professional Racquetball career. A true WINNER !!!!!!!

By the way, Walsh won 3 SB's too.

And I guess we're talking retired coaches here. Because if Belichick wins it all again this year...

Forgot one more. Beat the Dallas Cowboys during the strike season while the Cowboys had 7 starters including stars Danny White, Tony Dorsett and Randy White. The reason Gibbs doesn't get the recognition, is cause he won 2 SB's during strike seasons. Noll, Walsh, Belichick have won 3 SB's with the same QB and the Patriots will not win the SB this year.

He's already 3/4 in SB's. Even if he goes 3-5 I think people would still say he's better than Gibbs. I'm not even going to debate this one, as my knowledge of the Skins teams in the 80's is 1. Great offensive line 2. Great wideouts 3. Great run game some seasons? 4. Solid defense and qb's, and 5th. 3 SB trophies in 4 appearances.

I agree with most of what you said. But how can you be sure the Pats won't win it this year?
