Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry could not have had two more divergent personalities. Yet, while working for the New York Giants in the mid-1950s under head coach Jim Lee Howell, the pair formed what still stands as the greatest set of coordinators on one team.

Another hidden gem. I had no idea Lombardi and Landry were Assistants together with the Giants, and just how awesome they were as coaches. How Giants history might be different if they'd kept either one around. A fabulous read.
