And I'm not sure Bill or Andy have enough time left to catch him. Shula will own that #1 for a long long time.

Bill is 55 wins away - it will be close given his age and the fact that Brady is gone.

Comes down to whether he decides to coach for between 6-11 seasons. 

Hard to imagine he’d have as bad as eleven 5 win seasons in him.

Or ten 6 win?

More likely he averages six 10 win, or seven 9 win.

He could. I don't know how long he'll coach . He's 68.

My guess is he ends up with that record by the time he turns 77.

Dave Greenfield, the keyboard player from The Stranglers died after contracting the Coronavirus while hospitalized for heart problems.  His playing separated The Stranglers' sound from the bulk of other first wave UK Punk bands

Big fan of theirs and DG dominated their sound once they branched away from the pub punk. Golden Brown would be a good example.

BB might be motivated to do so, with how outspoken a critic of the Pats scandals Shula was.

Or, he might not give a #### whatsoever. :shrug:

My guess is you don’t get to be BB without a fire in your belly and a major chip on your shoulder. I suspect that record is in mind as a condition for retirement, but I may be totally wrong.

I wonder what BB’s career would look like if Cleveland hadn’t been the inept franchise they are and kept him this whole time. Would they have had a super bowl or two? Could he have done nearly as much without TB?

Not to disrespect the thread, but BB is coaching til somebody says "it wasnt Brady after all". Anywhere from 3 to 27 years...

This is a great opportunity for him to prove himself and for us to believe that coaching can be the most important thing.  I for one am already a believer, but proof would be excellent.

If nothing else, the next couple seasons should prove something one way or the other.

It was owner Art Modell who put all of his money into an amusement park and got into financial trouble so he sold it to a country music star who turned his financial failure into a cash-cow.  Dolly Parton bought it and turned it into DollyWood theme park which was a hit.

Modell couldn't afford to sign free agents and he wound up firing Bill Belichick.  The second HOF HC he fired after he fired HOF legend Paul Brown who became a thorn in his side.

If Modell wasn't so greedy and inept he could have coasted on the automatic earnings from his team.

Can you imagine Bill Belichick + GM Ozzie Newsome + the two 1st-round HOF picks Newsome made in OT Jon Ogden + LB Ray Lewis + getting QB Tom Brady the next year in the 6th round?  Then if Art could have stepped into the background having BB and Ozzie running the show with Brady and Odgen and Ray-Ray?

Brian Howe, former lead singer of the reformed Bad Company in the late '80s. Died of a heart attack at 66.

True, the band was a shell of its former self and was little more than a generic hair band cashing in on a once-proud name, the fact remains that they scored some major AOR hits on the radio airwaves.

Well, ####. 

He is the reason people were scared to death of rock and roll. Black dude with a pompadour piled way the hell up high, mascara running all over his face, slamming piano keys like his fingers were made of jackhammers, fey eye rolls. 

And that voice.  If a hormone could speak, it would sound like Richard.

Elvis, Chuck, Fats - they could all be fit into (with a little stretching) something white America could deal with. Richard, not so much.

The whole point of rock & roll, for my money. Uruk already made the point beautifully, so i'll only add that Richard Penniman's difference was ecstasy. The thing trained out of our folks in order to make them good citizens was actually still in us and we could not only access but produce it was what i sensed from that pretty whirlwind coming out into our living rooms. And music went instantly from comforting to challenging and we're all in Li'l Richard's debt for that. RIP -

Was lucky enough to see him in ‘88 while in Rome with a bus load of shipmates (USN 1983-89.) It was a heckuva a lineup: Bo Diddley, Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis, James Brown, Ray Charles, B.B. King, Chuck Berry.

The fact that Little Richard stood out in that crowd is all you need to know. Great showman.

James Brown is no slouch himself in the showmanship department; to have Little Richard stood out from him means a lot.

James was probably the guy I was most looking forward to on the way there - we had liberty from Napoli, it was a haul - but they were all amazing. Way before my time for all them except JB but even being young & dumb I knew it was something special.

I just heard the news about Little Richard and I’m so grieved. He was my shining star and guiding light back when I was only a little boy. His was the original spirit that moved me to do everything I would do. I played some shows with him in Europe in the early nineties and got to hang out in his dressing room a lot. He was always generous, kind and humble. And still dynamite as a performer and a musician and you could still learn plenty from him. In his presence he was always the same Little Richard that I first heard and was awed by growing up and I always was the same little boy. Of course he’ll live forever. But it’s like a part of your life is gone.

Little Richard and Roy on the same day.  No joke, watching one of Roy's white tigers stalking back and forth the length of LR's piano would have been a true Vegas spectacle.

Little Richard is probably deserving of his own thread.  I found this passage from the Rolling Stone article both sad and funny at the same time.

Quote

In a sign of how segregated the music business and radio were at the time, though, Pat Boone’s milquetoast covers of “Tutti Frutti” and “Long Tall Sally,” both also released in 1956, charted as well if not higher than Richard’s own versions. (“Boone’s “Tutti Frutti” hit Number 12, surpassing Little Richard’s by nine slots.) Penniman later told Rolling Stone that he made sure to sing “Long Tall Sally” faster than “Tutti Frutti” so that Boone couldn’t copy him as much.

most depressing place i've ever been in America, including SBronx in the 80s. i had a job interview @ Capricorn Records in '74 and got lost on the way down from Hotlanta. ended up in some kind of sharecropper hell, house after house of 4 sunken-eyed generations out on the porch cuz the place wasnt big enough for everyone to be inside at once. zombies are happier than them po'folk seemed - still see em in dreams

Really good. Always admire art that comes from a genuine place of expression, usually tinged with desperation... like a dishwasher at a Greyhound station in Macon, Georgia howling to make the time pass.
