Superbowl HCs (first 2 yrs)

Oh, doom and gloom....Rivera hasn't made us a Superbowl contender in 2 seasons so he is now poo. Lets look at what the few winners did as they started growing as HCs (record after their first 2 yrs as HC)

A look at the last 15 rings handed out. In the last 15 years only 11 HCs can claim they are Superbowl winners.

2011 - Coughlin - 13-19
2010 - McCarthy - 21-11 (team was 12-20 the 2 years prior)
2009 - Payton - 17-15 (team was 11-21 the two years prior)
2008 - Tomlin- 22-10 Superbowl (team was 19-13 the 2 years prior)
2007 - Coughlin - 13-19
2006 - Dungy -16-16
2005 - Cowher - 18-12 (team was 16-16 2 years prior)
2004 - Belichick 13-19
2003 - Belichick - 13-19
2002 - Gruden- 16-16
2001 - Belichick - 13-19
2000- Billick - 20-12 - Superbowl (team was 12-19 two years prior)
1999- Vermiel - 9-19
1998 - Shannahan - 8-12 (fired)
1997 - Shanahan - 8-12 (fired)

Out of the last 11 Superbowl winning HCs (last 15 seasons) only 5 won more games than they lost 2 years in to their head coaching careers during the regular season.

Now Ron.

13-19 (team was 10-22 the two years prior).

All I am saying is Rome wasn't built in a day. We don't fully know Ron's big picture potential. He deserves one more year to show his development. Sure, there are exceptions....sometimes a coach like Brian Billick will take over a team that was losing and wins Superbowl in two years. But Brian Billick isn't a reason to fire Rivera. Only other coach to win it in 2 years in recent history was a essentially a turn key operation in Mike Tomlin.

Now, can someone please make a Ron Rivera I Got This gif?

The 2-14 year he stepped in afterwards, the lock-out situation, and a rookie QB are huge factors, IMO....Not excuses, but impacting factors...

CRA, what's the success/fail ratio for coaches who started off their careers with two losing season?

John Elway was a bad QB when he entered the league, just like Jimmy Clausen. Therefore, Jimmy Clausen is a future hall of famer.

See, I can use logical fallacies too.

Rivera came into a situation where he shouldn't have won more than 3 games, but since he won 6 people wanted 12 the next year. Give people an inch, they want a mile. Logic leaves the building too early for many people.

I believe Ron is a good coach who the players respect, however Chud is a dumbass who's playcalling is extremely unpredictable.

I believe that a lot of our faults can be placed on him, look at the way he calls second half games. All those fuging three and outs.

Once again, misinformed. Chicago got to the Superbowl because of their defense and special teams. Rex Grossman at QB is why they lost.

You say that, but you are looking at many and comparing the decisions they made once they developed into HCs vs. a green Ron.

You think Belichick, Shanahan, Vermiel, etc were viewed as great HCs 2 years in? or bumbling fools that wouldn't pan out?
