90 years old.  One hell of a coach who I think has become underrated over time.

RIP

Most patriots fans remember the 1982 "snowplow game."

I don't think coach Shula liked the Patriots much after that one. It couldn't have been that bad though, I think his career record against the Patriots was something like (.780)

For a long long period of my life the Patriots could not win in Miami.  That's what made that first run to the Super Bowl in 85 so extra special.

If not for Shula, the ‘85 Bears might have gone undefeated.  He had his guys ready to play, the only Bears loss that year.
