Hated the '70s Phins and that crappy toast when the last undefeated team loses. With that being said, Don was a true legend and a top five coach in history.
That’s too bad. An icon for sure.
I actually was rooting for them to go perfect at the time. But yea, since then I just think they are assholes. Especially Mercury Morris who is the most outspoken of them. I don’t think Shula was involved in celebrating the last undefeated team losing but I could be wrong.
But back on point…Shula was a great coach, good guy and the Shula’s Steakhouses are cool and top quality (but expensive)
RIP Don Shula
R.I.P coach! Your work is done here sir!
Did the Rona get him? 90 is a hell of a long life, hope I can make it that long and still have a couple marbles left
Loved the Pittsburgh/Miami Super Bowl.
Was a DB coach for the Lions, so both he and Bill B got their start in Detroit. Still waiting for our SB here.
Sympathies to family and friends.
Truly, a football icon.
It’s weird growing up Shula was one of those guys who always seemed “old” to me. I honestly thought he was dead for a long time. I immediately called my brother and asked him, hey what year do you think Don Shula died? He guessed 2005 lol. He was floored when I told him it was today.
That’s Top 5 to me
The order of the bottom 4 can be debated but that’s Top 5
Walsh, Landry, Brown, Shula, Gibbs, Belichick, Reid, Noll. No particular order, just names that I think of when talking best ever.
Reid has what? One ring? He is good…but he isn’t “Dynasty Creator” good
Yeah, not calling him a dynasty creator, but if he wins another with Mahomes, won’t that match Shula’s SB wins? He’s been a respected name in the league as a HC for over 20 years. Didn’t the eagles owner give him a shout-out when they won a couple years ago? Quality HC that made the playoffs 9 out of 14 years with Philly and 5 of the last 7 in KC. I have a lot of respect for him, myself.
He is without a doubt a great coach
