Which teams have the best coach-OC-DC trio?

It’s not quite the Holy Trinity of a football team, but it’s close.

The three key coaches — the head coach, the offensive coordinator, and the defensive coordinator — go a long way toward determining how good a team will be. On Thursday’s PFT Live, we drafted the best such trios in the league.

It wasn’t easy, and we mentioned a bunch that didn’t make the list in order to not piss anyone off (or more accurately to piss of fewer than we otherwise would). If you disagree with us (shocking, if you do), drop a comment and tell us who we missed.

Big Cat returns for Friday’s PFT Live, and we’ll come up with some sort of draft during which I’ll easily mop the floor with him. While perusing the results of my two fantasy-football drafts.

  1. I’d say the Rams even thought they don’t officially list an OC? I just have that much respect for Wade Phillips as a DC. If Wade Phillips is your teams DC you then have a shot at the post season. And anything can happen in the post season.

    If anyone is your DC, you have a shot at the postseason. Wade is 14/25 making the post season as a DC. So you’re saying if Wade is my DC I can basically flip a coin? Definitely some graduate level analysis.

  3. The problem is if you are truly successful you wont be together very long. NE is constantly hemorrhaging coordinators(Although promotion doesn’t guarantee success). The Eagles won the SuperBowl and lost Frank Reich to a HC position and John Filipo for a Coordinator position. I

    Definitely the Colts, that’s how they won the SB last year. Oh wait . . .

    No, unfortunately you didn’t. Close though.

    It’s surprising how many Pats homers can’t spell the guy’s name right. I guess that shouldn’t be surprising.

    Looks like Patriots homers aren’t so wicked smaaaat

  9. Belichick was always known as the greatest defensive coach in the league’s history, he is now also acknowledged as the greatest head coach of all time. Yes Belichick as a defensive coach was better than Buddy Ryan and Bud Carson. This puts the Patriots on top of the list.

    A more fun question is which team has the worst combo of HC-OC-DC?

    —————

    That’s easy, the Chiefs. Andy Reid eliminates all others. He could have Bill Belichick and Sean Payton on his staff and he would still choke.
