cast off three of his five Pro Bowl defenders, while rebuilding the defense around a half-dozen players that anybody could've signed or drafted.
2594790, he will ship a LB off to cleveland midseason and win a SB

like it ain't even difficult

2594587, the owners should have been noisier

when Spygate hit rather making Deflategate be the sword the NFL fell on

not only was a 4-game gimme useless in that division, but it was ultimately useless in the end

everything prior to 2007 I'm not even counting and even with that, I'd give him the nod or put him on par with the other greats
2594685, their hands were tied, if Rog had let out what was really on those tapes...

the whole NFL machine could've came crashing down. IF there was actually proof that the Patriots cheated to win multiple super bowls? It would be lawsuits on top of lawsuits
2594724, Why would they be noisier? Goodell saved the league's "integrity"

By destroying the tapes. All anyone can do now is speculate about what or wasn't on there...that's infinitely better than any concrete proof of cheating. There's a reason the owners love Roger, he's a straight company man who looks out for their interests 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
2594588, #1. this dude will scrap a gameplan every week and win.

A better question might be…who is up there with him? Who is closest?

But for my money he is the best, and there are a ton of different reasons as to why.
2594902, outside of Lombardi, Shula, and *maybe* Halas, not too many.

And Halas never won it during the Super Bowl Era.

Maybe Bill Walsh or Chuck Knoll as a long shot?

2594768, Easy answer: GOAT

and a GOAT QB = 17 years of dominance
2594794, the guy with his name on the trophy is the best

2594905, GSH = GOAT
