If it wasn't for Bill Walsh, football played in the 80s & 90s wouldn't have been the same. Not only did his team win three Super Bowls, his successor won another two, and his protegees (Holmgren, Shanahan, Gruden) won another four. That's not to mention other places that were at or near the top (Reid in Philly, Green in Minnesota) and the rivalries that were created (Redskins/49ers, Cowboys/49ers, Bears/49ers, Cowboys/Packers, 49ers/Giants). If any one person was responsible for NFC dominance for two decades, it was Bill Walsh. And, he did it with class.
