Greatest 4-year Stretch in NFL History?

If Belichick musters up another Super Bowl Trophy, can this possibly be the greatest 4-year stretch of any NFL Head Coach?

If Belichick can win the Super Bowl this year then yes that would have to be the greatest 4 year run in NFL history. Nobody has ever won 3 super bowls in 4 years so it would have to go to him. Belichick is a defensive master mind and what he did last week to Indy was crippling.

I am sure that the Patriots will have no problems playing against the Steelers this weekend. In fact I'm predicting a shut out for the Patriots defense. If they can hold the Colts to 3 points then the Steelers should be in negotives. Too bad that can't happen so I predict the score to be 20-0 Pats!

If he does achieve the Super Bowl, how can you not say this was the greatest 4-year stretch by an NFL head coach? Let's examine!

48-16, 2 Super bowls thus far, 7-0 in the post season, back-to-back 14-2 seasons (which will probably be associated with back-to-back Super Bowl wins). But to add that 3rd Super Bowl title would make this stretch unprecedented.

Not even Shanahan’s run when the Broncos won back-to-back Super Bowl titles was as good as this…a very close 2nd, but not quite as good. Think of any other coach so we can debate their best 4-year stretch.

Thanks for visiting my blog Red, glad to see such a wonderful subject on your sports junkies blog. As a Patriots fan myself, I would have to agree this is the greatest 4 year run by any coach in the history of the nfl. I also think that if by the finger of God that the Pats don't win the Super Bowl this year, this 4 year run will still be the greatest. I also like your prediction Red. Though I don't think the Patriots can keep the Steelers scoreless, the Pats will win this game 27-10 and beat the Eagles 28-17 in the Super Bwol. Keep it real Red, your site rocks, I'm out!

Thanks for stopping by BPF and for the good words.

It's hard to argue what Belichick has done with the Patriots. I can't remember being as impressed as I was Sunday watching the Pats hold Indy - one of the best offenses in history - to 3 points.

If they go on to win the SuperBowl, beating my boys the Eagles, I'd put him in the Hall.

Bill Walsh from 81-84 won 2 super bowls and would have won 3 if it werent for a strike.

It's a pretty amazing stretch...but there's plenty of work to be done...we still need to win a game Sunday just to get to the Super Bowl again. But man, is there a better coach in any sport right now?

Greatest three year stretch? No...Because you have to include the 2002 Patriots in the bunch...

Remember them? Yeah they finished 9-7 and didn't even make the playoffs..

The best four-year period is (unfortunately) the Dallas Cowboys of 92-95...Let's see

1992: 13-3, Super Bowl Champs
1993: 12-4, Super Bowl Champs
1994: 12-4, Lost in NFC Championship
1995: 12-4, Super Bowl Champs..

So they were one game away from being four-time champions with a 10-1 postseason record...The Patriots have been a great, but they don't hold up to the Cowboys.

True... But as for a 4 year stretch for a coach, Bilecheck will be better if they can win again this year. Barry Switzer won the last SB for the Cowgirls.

Nah, gotta make the playoffs each of the years. Winning three out of a four as an organization is nice, but no playoffs in 2002 is an albatross and it should be.

I agree,

I love NFL. and recently I have bought stock in it. Not like real stock on Wall street, but a stock market that is strictly for sports.

You have seen it? Its pretty cool. You buy issues for your favorite teams and you make real money. Not like a fake stock simulator. I cash out Dividends each time the team wins. Also I can sell my team stock when the price goes up.

They just released IPO'S for NFL this week, so there are alot of good deals there.

Keep up the good work on your blog!
