Something that will only increase with difficulty to match with an expanded regular season. We're likely to never see it happen again.

Some incredible stats I heard about him yesterday.....

 

31 winning seasons out of 33 total.  

Still 55 wins ahead of Belicheck.

Went to the SB with FIVE different QB's.  

 

Not sure if any of those will ever be matched.

I think BB may catch him for total wins, that's about it.

Yeah, I think that's the most likely.  But, if I had to put numbers on it, I would put even that one at less than a 50/50 chance of happening.  That's at least four, and probably more like 5-6 solid seasons.... I don't think BB has that left in him, all factors considered.

It could happen, but Shula started much younger, and also had success right away. Oh and didn't move back to a lower position after not doing too well in his first job. Fewer losing seasons also, and went from coach of one contending team to another.

 

A guy fitting of the term legend. BB has been great, and has more SB titles, but he won't be the greatest.
