Tony Dungy was a good coach, and his team won a Super Bowl.

I guess Tomlin's Super Bowl win as a head coach didn't matter because he inherited Cowhers team, right?
Funny you should say that...Many people on this board argue that Tomlin won with Cowhers team. Time will tell if he can put those whispers to bed.

One thing that can't be argued. If Cowher had a Manning or BR7 the Steelers have 2 more rings

Back to the Colts...7 years 70 plus wins and 5 division titles tells you the talent was there. ( Remember they were in the division with the Patriots at that point ) They just only got the job done once. Ultimately that falls on the head coach....
