More like talent and good coaching...
A quick look at career records in 3-point games of various greats finds:
• Vince Lombardi’s Packers: 12-11, 52%, while winning five NFL titles and the first two Super Bowls.
• Bill Walsh’s 49ers: 17-22, 44%, winning three Super Bowls.
• Chuck Noll’s Steelers: 13-23, 36%, during the Terry Bradshaw years with four Super Bowl titles.
This comment from the Justin thread (a great read, by the way) intrigued me. I thought long and hard about how many fans love Andy to such an ridiculous extent that they will select examples that a) make their point to the exclusion of overwhelming evidence to the contrary and b) allow fatandy to have something to put on his "please don't fire me" slideshow that he's going to play for Howie, Jeff and Joe sometime soon at Nova Care.
Two can play at that game, motherfuckers.
Looking at the career of FOUR Super Bowl winning coaches, I have the following data for your viewing pleasure
Tom Landry--35-31 in games decided by 3 points or fewer--52% winning percentage
Iron Mike Ditka--19-15 in games decided by 3 points or fewer--56% winning percentage
Bill Cowher--29-21 in games decided by 3 points or fewer--58% winning percentage
Joe Gibbs--29-14!!!! in games decided by 3 points or fewer--67% winning percentage
Oh, I forgot one. John Madden (one of the Obese Head Coaches I mentioned in the other thread) was 22-6-4 in games decided by 3 points or fewer. He was 5-0 in those games his Super Bowl season of 1976.
Yeah, it's gotta be dumb fucking luck.
