There is one football game to be played. Everything's on the line (whatever everything may be). Four quarters. Regulation ball. Fifty-three players.
Now who do you choose as your coach: Bill Parcells or Bill Belichick?
This isn't exactly the question that was posed over here, but it follows the same line of thinking.
Bill Parcells is considered one of the best coaches ever, winning two Super Bowls with the Giants and being a force wherever else he goes.
Bill Belichick is in the same league, winning three Super Bowl titles with the Patriots and being a key cog earlier in his career as a defensive and special teams coordinator.
But when it's all said and done, who will be remembered as a better coach?
One thing that needs to be addressed is that fact that Belichick is not done being a coach. And -- knowing Belichick -- the day he retires from roaming the sidelines may be a long time coming. He could also go the Parcells route and take a front office position. Imagine how much that could raise his overall stock.
Clock is ticking: Who do you choose to roam the sidelines in that one football game you have to win?
