Chuck Noll was a great coach. Got me to thinking about coaching trees. Paul Brown has Chuck Noll, Bill Walsh and Don Shula as members of his coaching tree while Lombardi's tree come nowhere close. Statisticians found that every reiteration, they came up with Paul Brown as the greatest coach ever, except once. Vince Lombardi came out number one when they omitted some of the best portions of Paul Brown's career. Even then it was close.
No other coach can claim Paul Browns accomplishments. His 25 years coaching dwarfs the 10 years of Lombardi and his 7 Championships in a 10 year period best Lombardi's 5. Brown is also the guy who started conditioning programs and diets, requiring curfews, and a whole host of skill specific exercises which has made the NFL what it is today. He is the only coach with a team named after him and the only one to be responsible for the founding of two teams.
The Lombardi Trophy that goes to the Super Bowl Winner should be named the Paul Brown Trophy yet the idea of naming the trophy came about shortly after the SB era came about, and Lombardi had just won two .
Time the NFL fixes things much like the NBA, naming their Finals Trophy after Bill Russell.
