    We all know this up here, but here is a random poll nationwide...

    Cast your vote for your all-time Super Bowl head coaches (pick your top five):

    58.1% Bill Belichick (Patriots) -- The defensive mastermind who has led New England to three of the last four Super Bowl titles (XXXVI, XXXVIII, XXXIX), including an upset of a powerful St. Louis team in SB XXXVI. Belichick was also part of a New York Giants victory in SB XXI as an assistant to Bill Parcells.

    37.8% Chuck Noll (Steelers) -- Went undefeated in four Super Bowl appearances with the famed ''Steel Curtain'' Steelers of the '70s. Pittsburgh won back-to-back titles in SBs IX-X and XIII-XIV.

    36.7% Bill Walsh (49ers) -- The offensive innovator led San Francisco to three Super Bowl titles (XVI, XIX, XXIII) during his tenure and retired on top after the last of those wins.

    36.7% Vince Lombardi (Packers) -- Led Green Bay to wins over Kansas City and Oakland, respectively, in the first two Super Bowls. The trophy awarded to the Super Bowl winners now bears Lombardi's name.

    23.9% Joe Gibbs (Redskins) -- Won three Super Bowls with three different quarterbacks in Washington. Titles in SBs XVII and XXII came after strike-shortened seasons but a dominating performance in SB XXVI followed a full season.

    18.1% Tom Landry (Cowboys) -- Coached Dallas to five Super Bowls, winning two. Landry came out on top in SBs VI and XII, and losses in SBs V, X and XIII came by a combined 11 points with two at the hands of the Steelers.

    17.0% Don Shula (Colts/Dolphins) -- The first coach to lead two different teams (Baltimore, Miami) to the Super Bowl, Shula has six appearances to his credit. He coached Baltimore in a loss in SB III before winning back-to-back titles with Miami in SBs VII and VIII. Shula also coached the Dolphins in losses in SBs VI, XVII and XIX.

    13.6% Jimmy Johnson (Cowboys) -- Built the powerful Dallas teams of the early '90s and led the Cowboys to back-to-back victories in Super Bowls XXVII and XXVIII.

    12.8% Bill Parcells (Giants/Patriots) -- Guided the New York Giants to titles in Super Bowls XXI and XXV, including a big upset of Buffalo in the second of those games. Parcells also coached New England in a Super Bowl XXXI loss to Green Bay.

    11.8% Mike Ditka (Bears) -- Won only one Super Bowl during his career but it was perhaps the most dominating win in Super Bowl history. Chicago allowed ony 123 total yards, including just seven on the ground, in a 46-10 thrashing of New England.

    9.8% Mike Shanahan (Broncos) -- Led Denver to back-to-back Super Bowl wins, a major upset of Green Bay in SB XXXII followed the next year by a pounding of Atlanta in SB XXXIII.

    3.5% Hank Stram (Chiefs) -- His AFL Kansas City Chiefs played in two of the first four Super Bowls (I, IV), with Stram's innovative offensive strategies leading the way to a 23-7 upset of Minnesota in SB IV.

    2.7% George Seifert (49ers) -- Took over for Bill Walsh and led San Francisco to a win in Super Bowl XXIV in his first season, then followed with a blowout win over San Diego in SB XXIX.

    1.8% Tom Flores (Raiders) -- Led underdog Oakland teams to easy victories in Super Bowls XV and XVIII, and also won SB XI as a Raiders assistant.

    Thing is .... BB deserves this vote. Fans of all teams recognize what this
    coach has done. Even our hated rivals recognize his genius.
    How often I need to remind myself of fortunate we are to have
    this man as HC of our team. It really doesn't get any better ... enjoy
    while it last because some day he will retire.
    Thank you Bill Belichick for the memories!
