BTW, I was against firing Gary this offseason. I actually think he did a masterful job coacing a team with a hurt QB/WR and had depth issues to a 12-4 record.
Dude, weak attempt. It is very uncommon, exceptionally uncommon and then if you want to top that off show where the results got better?
Shottenheimer - now he was legitimately fired but the team benefited how? Playoff team went a few more times and then tumbled and fired the new coach.
Jimmy Johnson - please for even including this one. JJ did not get fired. Basically the Cowboys floundered since the team JJ built.
Shula - not fired - retired.
Haley - fired mid-season the next year after a WC appearance.
Lovie - hasn't made the playoffs in three years.
The only one that came close to answering my question was Shottenheimer. This shows how biased you are in your analysis. I mean seriously, you typed in Jimmy Johnson and didn't Homer Simpson yourself?
