The Top TenXW
He was a great coach. He really new how to get his players to play at their best. He did not settle for anything other than putting out your best effort all the time - practice, games and every day of your life, he did not want his players to settle for mediocrity.
It isn't called the Lombardi trophy for nothing.
He has a trophy named after him he of course is the best

Lombardi won in a very depleted league. Walsh won in a better league and changed the game. There are no lasting legacies from Lombardi other than winning. (Remember his most lasting legacy was "blocking and tackling." Walsh was first to script plays, constructed the west coast offense, first to pay attention to managing the salary cap, first to draft on offense, defense and special teams, and was better than most in drafting and managing a roster. Lombardi had no legacy coaches. Walsh had Seifert (2 rings) Shanahan (2 rings), Holmgren (1 ring), Green, Gruden (1 ring), Billick (1 ring), and Reid. Ten rings! No other coach in NFL history has changed and influenced the game the way Walsh did. The best textbook on football (Finding the Winning Edge) was written by Walsh.
He changed the game completely
Around 1980 He changed the game, along with Montana put San Francisco on the "map."
He invented the west coast with the browns - Danmarino4V2 Comments
How is Don Shula no number one he coached the only team that went undefeated
He coached the only perfect team to win it all including the super bowl in nfl history something the patriots couldn't do with tom brady throwing 50 tds and randy moss having 23 tdsV3 Comments
Broncos never should have fired him.
Good but NOT great!
Really? Second most winning coach in NFL History and Super Bowl champion coach and he's not even in the Top 3! Vote for this legend!
He should be number two bill belichick is a cheater and a liar he is a cheliarV3 Comments
Not only did he go to 5 super bowls and win 2, but he was within a touchdown or field goal of several other nfc championships. Also, the super bowls he lost were by less than a touchdown, and each included a controversial play that was the difference in the game.
Great coach but never won a ring without a Belichick coached defense.
Only NFL Head Coach to own four Super Bowl Rings, drafted the greatest class ever in 1974, only coach to win 4 Super Bowls in 6 years! Should be #1,
Noll is not higher cause he coached the greatest team ever, so it had to e easy. In the NFL, coaching is also managing egos. Can you imagine managing 8 hall of famers? Not so easy!V1 Comment
Jimmy built thar super cowboys team from scratch. Predicted a win over a super strong 49ers team publicly for nfc championship game. Ballsy move and took no bologna from players..

Halas has to be put in the top 10 you guys don't know what your voting for, plus he made the NFL happen.
Not only a grate coach.. The NFL would not have been.
He helped found the nfl, and he retired as the all time winningest coach in NFL history! At least top 5
Really? How did this idiot ever get a coaching job. How did he make it in the top 50?
He may not be the best but he's still better then Sean Payton most other coachs
