re: Who is the worst coach to ever win a SB?

He took a bad bottom ranked offense and by the end of his first year had them putting up alot of points. That was his only job. Period and it won them a SB.

Gruden is a good coach. Just a bad evaluator of talent.

Billick was bad at QB evaluation but over all was a decent coach. Hard to say on Tomlin, he took over a good, but old team.
Gruden is for sure a good coach. He built up the Raiders.

You can be a coach and not make any front office decisions. That was his problem in TB. He and Bruce Allen ran everything.

Billick has one of the best defenses ever for about a decade.

Rex Ryan
Marvin Lewis
Mike Singletary
Mike Nolan

All coached his defenses. He couldn't manage a game and couldn't get an offense to score 20 points despite being an "offensive genius" Baltimore has a great GM. So Billick looked better than he was. It's also telling he got zero interest upon firing despite desperately putting his name out there through his employer at the time NFLN

He coached a retread rich Gannon to an MVP. He made brad Johnson a good QB. He can coach up a QB. He just doesn't know what one looks like.

I'm a Ravens fan. I don't think Billick was that good of a coach but he played a huge part in changing the culture of that team. A lot of people forget that the Ravens were absolutely awful before he got there and he turned them around immediately. Also, he did a brilliant job motivating the team and keeping them close together over the course of an up and down situation. I mean the team went five straight games without scoring a TD. The locker room could have easily fallen apart and imploded. Instead they became even more closely-knit and won 11 straight games to close out the season. Billick did a lot more for the team than just go along the road. The only possible correct answers to this question is Don McCafferty and Barry Switzer. Both coaches won Super Bowls with teams that were already built by the previous coach. All they had to do was not screw it up.

Then he belongs in this thread. There are only a handful of "not that good of a coach" coaches that have won it all

Who oversaw the offense?

The 2000 ravens offense's job description. Who oversaw that unit again?

The Ravens offense actually wasn't even that bad that season. They just couldn't score TDs in the red zone because Tony Banks was one of the biggest frickups at QB I've ever seen. They were 14th in points scored and 16th in total offense. They put up better offensive numbers in the regular season than the 2002 Bucs and 2008 Steelers did. At least the Ravens had an elite rushing attack. Those two teams weren't good running or throwing the ball.
