Yea, I realize that, and my point is that the process is subjective and there's no reason to get worked up over the fact that this coach or that coach is ranked ahead of Chuck Noll by pundits, GMs or ESPN.

Bill Walsh belongs in the discussion with the others, anyone trying to discredit Bill Walsh as an all time great simply wasn't paying attention to the league and the way it changed. On the other hand, trying to discredit Chuck Noll as an all time great is just as crazy. Everyone has their bias about one coach or the other, if I were starting a team, I'd hire any one of the coaches mentioned and never look back and my team would probably be very successful.
