Jimmy Johnson & Pete Carroll

Aside from Chuck Noll and Bill Walsh, no NFL coach in history was sitting on as much talent at the right time as Johnson. He had built the Cowboys up by using a keen eye for special skills.

Johnson's visionary prowess helped him see the fool's gold that was Herschel Walker, the underrated potential in undrafted free agents like tight end Jay Novacek, and the value in coveting speed at a time when the league was still built mainly around bulk and brawn. Like all great leaders, Johnson saw where the game needed to go before anybody else had a chance to catch up.

The Cowboys went from 1-15 in his first year to 11-5 in his third.

That's Jeffri Chadiha on Jimmy Johnson, whom ESPN has tagged as the #13 coach in NFL history.

Hmmm . . . Johnson had "a keen eye for special skills" and "saw where the game needed to go before anybody else had a chance to catch up" . . . That doesn't remind you of anyone, does it?
