Over in Patriots-land, we spend too much time thinking about how the Bill Belichick coaching tree will fare in the future, especially considering that the JJ coaching tree just saw the last of its fruit die horribly (Wannstedt and Butch Davis both getting the axe mid-season).

Anyway, this is an amazing website. Did you know that Dick Vermeil and Marv Levy are both disciples of the old George Allen Redskins? Shanarat is a Reeves disciple, as we knew, but Reeves in turn was an old Tom Landry guy, along with Mike Ditka.

Good stuff for history geeks and NFL nerds.

Norv Turner doesn't count?

His death is coming; delayed by perhaps a year...

Bill Walsh was directly quoted as saying "The most I ever learned about football, I learned in my year with the Raiders."

He belongs under Sid Gillman's tree.

I was just thinking about creating a site like that!

Thanks for saving me an insane amount of work.

If Turner didn't beat the donkeys he would've been gone, he may get 1 more season if that. That dude has like 9 coaching lives.
