TOM LANDRY DALLAS COWBOYS COACH..





SUPER BOWL SUNDAY





TOM LANDRY
DALLAS COWBOYS COACH


ROLEX DAY-DATE


It's that time of the year again. Time for Super Bowl Sunday, so I thought it would make sense to get in the Rolex Time Machine and go back to take a look at some of the greatest coaches in NFL history—all wearing their trusted Rolex watches.



Tom Landry (pictured above and below) began his professional athletic career as a baseball player for the New York Yankees in 1949. From 1950 to 1955 he played for the New York Giants. He became a coach for the Giants and seven with them from 1954-1959. He then went on to become the head coach of his beloved Dallas Cowboys from 1960 to 1988. Tom Landry was best know for his trademark Fedora, and Rolex Day-Date...



Tom Laundry won two Super Bowl titles  (VI, XII), as well as five NFC titles, and 13 Divisional titles. He is record makes him the third winningest coach in Football with a 270-178-6 record. From 1966 to 1885 he had 20 consecutive winning seasons. 



Tom Laundry is pictured below with fellow leading football coaching legend, Vincent Lombardi.











Jimmy Johnson

DALLAS COWBOYS COACH


ROLEX DAY-DATE


Since we are on the subject of Dallas Cowboy coaching, I thought I would point out that one of Tom Landry's predecessors also wears a yellow gold Rolex Day-Date, and that is Jimmy Johnson.



Jimmy Johnson won the Super Bowl twice, just like Tom Landry did. Johnson won Super Bowl XXVII and XXVIII. In the photos above and below we see Dallas Cowboys Head Coach (1989-1993), Jimmy Johnson wearing his yellow gold Rolex Day-Date. For some reason, in Texas some people refer to Rolex watches as a TEXAS TIMEX, since Rolex watches are so commonly worn in Texas.






Jimmy Johnson is pictured below with Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones.






Bill Walsh
49ERS Head Coach


ROLEX DAY-DATE OYSTER QUARTZ


Bill Walsh is considered to be one of the best NFL Head Coaches in history with an amazing career achievement with the 49ers of 102-63-1. H won 10 of his postseason games along with 6 division titles, along with three NFC Championship tiles. He also won the Super Bowl three times with the 49ers, in 1981, 1984 and 1988.






Bill Walsh is pictured below with 49ers Quarterback, Joe Montana, and 49ers owner, Eddie DeBartola Jr. holding the Super Bowl Trophy on January 20, 1985 when the 49ers prevailed over the Miami Dolphins.

Speaking of prevailing, one of the funniest things I have heard was somebody sarcastically say, "Hurray, the sports franchise located close to my physical location emerged victorious against one further away from me!" ;-)






Mike Ditka

DA BEARS, DA BULLS


ROLEX TRIDOR DAY-DATE

Since we are on the subject of NFL Football coaches wearing Rolex Day-Dates, I though I would share this photo of former Chicago Bears Head Coach, Mike Ditka. In the photo below we see Mike Ditka wearing a Rolex Tridor Day-Date. The Rolex Tridor looked like a two tone Datejust had a baby with a Rolex Day-Date. Mike Ditka was the Head Coach for the Bears when they won Super Bowl XX.



The photo below shows Bill Walsh giving Mike Ditka a congratulatory hug after winning against the 49ers of October  13, 1985 at Candlestick Park in San Francisco.

Next up we see New York Giants Head Coach, Tom Coughlin holding up the 2012 Super Bowl XLVI trophy, and we get a clear shot of his Rolex Submariner. He won the Super Bowl with Giants twice, with XLII and XLVI.
