For sure its probably has to be the best - its just that losing games you have led by 11 points must be relatively rare - and if you factor in it being a succesful team it should make it even rarer.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

Thats interesting - Parcells is a good coach and 25 games is a big difference.

It would be nice to be able to compare him to the likes of Landry and Lombardi just to see how impressive it really was.

Holmes may be more willing to accept the realities of playing in the Steel City -- more blocking and less pass-catching opportunities than first-round receivers are used to -- but he'll still have to understand that Hines Ward is the man in that system.

Okay...Point 1) SI is a rag that makes my parrot stick its butt OUT of its cage so as to not improve upon its writing.
Point 2) If they paid any atention at all to Pitts drafting trends, they would see that We have gotten away from drafting Edwards/Burress caliber of players...and started drafting players with better character. I think that We have just figured out that Cincy wants all the Chris Henrys of the world, and since they will ALWAYS have better draft position than us..they can have them
Point 3) As an ex-army Vet...let me explain something to SI writers...Bengals Fans ...Homeless people...Ray Lewis...and those "special" people who have been institutionalized. The quality of the weapons you possess are never based on how often you use them...they are SOLELY based on effectivness when utilized and the ability of the user to know when/where/how to utilize them. To say that Holmes is a poor pick for Pitt because We have Ward...is the military equivalant of saying that planes are useless since we have tanks. Holmes is a legitimate weapon unto himself...PERIOD!
Point 4) I seem to remember a very effective ground game in the late 70's ...and two HALL OF FAME recievers that even SI may recall were ...oh I dont know...HALL OF FAME RECIEVERS!!! Makes one think that a good ground game and effective passing attack may co-exist. HMMMMM...some may even call that a "well-balanced" team.
Well..back to teaching my parrot that the crap on its SI bedliner was there before I lined its cage.
Well put. I agree those clowns from SI usually have their heads shoved up thier a s s e s.

diffucult to find info on. cowher has won about 130+ games. he has had atleast a 10 point lead in 100 of those and only lost once with said lead. you can look at some of his peers mentionned below and see he has an excellent %


... while his record is 76-7 when his teams open a 10+-point lead. ... Dungy, one of the most respected and popular NFL coaches, also has a reputation for ...

Gruden, the NFL's youngest head coach, has a 40-28 record in four seasons with the Raiders. He led the team to the AFC title game a year ago, and the Raiders lost this year in a second-round game to eventual Super Bowl champion New England after blowing a 10-point lead in the final quarter.http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/foo...aneers_gruden/ [jon grudens buccaneeers also gave up that huge lead to the colts on mnf]

Parcells has a remarkable 50-1 record when entering the fourth quarter with a lead of 11 points or more in his head coaching career. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Parcells
