Then we have the Sean Payton example.
Think I have to amend that to 80% QB & HC, Then everybody else.
If it was 80% QB then Philip Rivers would be doing better than he has, Peyton Manning would have more than one ring, Favre would've had more than one, Elway would've won before Terrell Davis, and Dan Marino sure as shit wouldn't have been shut out.
You can't win a SB without a very good quarterback, but you need alot more than a very good quarterback to win consistently in the NFL. Belichick is the ARCHITECT (not just the coach) of a team that wasn't under .500 for a full decade, and has gone to 5 Super Bowls (and an AFCC) in 10 years. The entire roster has turned over other than Brady, and still the Patriots have gone to Super Bowls...
