I'm glad some are discussing Dungy's greatness as a coach. For years, morons, idiots, jerk-offs, and schmuckzillas questioned his ability to coach. Anyone who did this simply didn't know anything about football (Gregg Easterbrook, Bill Simmons, the entire ESPN NFL Countdown crew, most Boston-based writers, Mike Florio, and Terry Bradshaw), and any further opinions about football from these idiot hacks should be dismissed outright.
Dungy's first Super Bowl win validated what most of the intelligent world already knew: That Tony D was a great coach as well as a great man. He's brought more innovation to this game than any other coach in the modern era. Several NFL clubs use the Cover 2 defense he "created" along with Monte Kiffin, and you are seeing many clubs adopt the no-huddle offense he perfected with Tom Moore and Peyton Manning. New England, Cincy, and Pittsburgh all run a variation of Indy's offense now, and contrary to what many think, Dungy had a strong hand in perfecting Tom Moore's offense.
The NFL has taken notice, replacing Bill Bilichick's mug in the copyright ads they run ("This telecast is copyrighted by the NFL, and is expressly..."). In the old video, Bilichick was montaged with Vince Lombardi and Bill Walsh. Now, Tony Dungy is in there with Walsh and Lombardi, sans Bilichick. I'm sure that livens up New England fans. I'm sure we all give a crap.
It's nice to see Dungy get the respect he's always deserved, and I agree with Deshawn Zombie that this season has been Dungy's best as a coach. The team has been hit hard with injuries. They lost numerous key players in the off-season and pre-season. Freeney is now gone for the year. Yet, despite all these loses, the Colts are as tough and good as we've ever seen them. Even without Freeney, this defense is scary good. And when guys like Marvin and Ugoh get healthy, you know #18 is going to want to get in his groove.
That's all a tribute to Dungy: Coaching genius, and a great man.
