    Of all HC's with 15+ years service, Andy Reid is #12 in winning %, counting regular season and playoffs.

    He was mentioned in the original post with players who have 3 or more.

    In the other 3 major sports all the players with more than 6 rings either played for the Yankees, Canadians or Celtics with the one outlier being Robert Horry who was lucky enough to win 7 rings with 3 different teams playing for 3 mini dynasties in the Rockets, Lakers and Spurs.

    In the NFL 4 players have won 6 rings. 3 were Packers. Forest Gregg, Fuzzy Thurston and Herb Adderly. All 3 won 5 with the Packers. Adderly and Gregg added another ironically with the Cowboys in 71 and Thurston with the Colts in 58 before playing with the Packers.

    If Brady can add 1 with Tampa he'll join Richard (11 Montreal), Russell (11 Celtics) and Berra (10 Yankees) as tops in his sport.

    There will never be a universe in which Andy Reid is held in the same regard as BB.

    With that said Reid has had a very, very good career.

    Shouldn't Montreal receive an asterisk? Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the winner receive the top draft choice the following year?

    No but there was an old rule teams had the rights to anyone who grew up within 50 miles of the city. Since that rule was changed Toronto hasn't won a championship and Montreal has won 4. Of the 4 Montreal won 2 of them were within the first 5 years of the rule change. So ya all of those early Montreal and Toronto ones are a little skewed.

    I think Reid takes a little too much criticism here considering his record, but yes, he's no Belichick. Nobody is.

    Sadly for all of us, Brady should already be tops in his sport, with 10 (at least).

    That's revisionist history. The amateur draft was instituted in 1963 and that 50 miles rule was in place until 1969. So the impact of that rule is greatly exaggerated, as it lasted 7 drafts. The best player that came from this rule was probably Réjean Houle.

    The fact that Toronto hasn't won anything since 1969 and that Montréal has 'only' won 8 Cups has more to do with the league expansions starting in 1967. And, for Toronto, the Harold Ballard years didn't help them...

    Correct me if I’m mistaken but isn’t there a wing at the HOF devoted to epic clock management gaffes and the centerpiece of the exhibit is a bust of Andrew Walter Reid scratching his head with one hand while eating a double meat hoagie with the other.

    With some more wins, deep runs, and another Super Bowl Reid would likely solidify himself as a top 10 coach of all-time. That’s not a bad spot to be.

    Passing Bill though? Yeah I don’t think so..

    Was surprised to find that Bobby Orr was not a first round draft pick. He was a phenom at a young age and would be the first athlete taken in a legitimate draft.

    AT LEAST 2 of those 8 should never, Ever, EVAH have happened...and I can think of another 2 where Lady Luck (or whatever her name is in French; I took German at Boston Latin instead) spread her legs for them...

    It was much different then. The Bruins began pursuit of Orr when he was /13/. And they signed him when he was 14. The league didn't even institute a draft until more than a year later.

    My point was the NHL draft was flawed as the best players were not drafted.

    Chiefs have an opportunity to dominate a weak azz AFC much like when the Pats took over in the early 2000's.

    Belichick has been to ELEVEN Super Bowls as HC and coordinator, nine with the Patriots and two with the Giants. I think he has also been to six more as a spectator.

    Reid is not a rival to the Pats. Beating Reid isn’t really what I’d think as a notable accomplishment compared to how other teams feel about BB. Probably won’t be paying much attention to that sort of thing to be honest.

    Careful that might trigger the Bradyites. Everyone knows Belichick is a bad coach without #Tommy as his sub .500 record as a coach almost half a century ago “proves”. :rofl:
