    C'mon, I don't want to hate or be a homer, but what has Dungy done except ride the greatest regular season QBs. I think he is very good, would prefer over many bolts HC. But what did he innovate, lucky he met Rex Grossman in SB.

    Dungy has the qualifications to be in the hall of fame as a coach...but Don Coryell changed the way pro football is played...he should have been inducted while he was still alive. Coryell - HOF 2017!!! Come on NFL, get it right!

    Rex Grossman wasn't the reason the Bears were in the Super Bowl. He was simply the somewhat competent person manning the QB position while the defense ran roughshod over opponents, to include Drew Brees two weeks prior in the NFCC.

    I just don't see Dungy as a Hall of Fame coach.

    The HOF vote is ridiculous.

    Coryell belongs in the HOF before Dungy because in addition to having a winning record (just not quite the winning percentage Dungy had), he also revolutionized the game.

    The failure to vote in Owens is idiotic. He is easily a HOF level player. This first ballot or the voter didn't like TO's attitude is a bunch of crap that has nothing to do with legitimate HOF analysis.

    Ken Stabler? Were the voters drunk?! 194 TDs and 222 INTs means not a HOF player--period, regardless of era. I don't care if he was forced to throw a leather covered brick to receivers with no arms that had defenders hanging from them like ornaments. The TDs versus INTs alone should be disqualifying.

    In addition to being a total a-hole, Dungy is an overrated coach. The Bucs won the SB the year after he left, precisely because they fired him and hired a better HC in Jon Gruden.

    In Indy, Dungy underachieved with some very talented teams that featured multiple HOF players.

    His biggest contribution to the game was the tampa-2 defense--an inferior defensive scheme that fell out of favor pretty quickly.
