Football Info

Previous items noted that Bill Belichick and Mike Shanahan had great won-loss records when coaching great quarterbacks (Tom Brady, John Elway), but average results with anyone else at quarterback. Jeffrey Halpern of Cleveland writes, "Bill Cowher coached for 15 seasons, with five different starting quarterbacks. He had Ben Roethlisberger, a star quarterback, but for only two seasons; no other starting quarterback he coached will be a Hall of Fame candidate. Yet he has a 149-90-1 record as a head coach, and made the playoffs 10 of 15 seasons. He won no matter who was the quarterback."
