tomlin has more superbowl appearances and victorys at this stage of his life in head coaching career than belichick did his.
through 8 years as a HEAD COACH belichick had 1 sb appearance and 1 victory. through 5 years tomlin has 2 superbowl appearances and 1 victory.
going by the standards you set in your own post, marv levy is just as good, being able to send a great team to the champ game more than 2 years in a row (lets see chick do that with frank reich) and joe gibbs is even better being able to win 3 champs with 3 different qb's (lets see 'chick do that with jay schroeder or mark rypien).
none of the aforementioned coaches needed the "tuck rule" or "spygate" to help them out.
try again, pattycake.
