Every NFL team has a greatest coach in their history. Once determined who they all are, where will each of them fall in an all-time rankings?
A number of parameters will be factored into this. How long he coached, what era he coached in, number of wins, winning percentage, championships won and sustained success. In other words did he win a lot early and then suffer a significant dip or was it constant? Another thing that will be included is whether those coaches had success with other teams. This is because while the representative team is part of it, the primary focus is the career the man had. His run with that team gets him on the list, but his entire body work determines the final ranking.
With all that in mind, before the real list gets started here are a few names who deserved consideration but just missed the cut.
