Bert Bell is not only the losingest coach in NFL history....he was  a fucking loser in other aspects of his life. He was also the owner of the Philadelphia Eagles....AND.....at the very same time, he was the Commissioner of the NFL.  

Recall that it was Bell as Commish and owner of the Eagles who proclaimed that after the merger of the 3 teams from the AAFC into the NFL that his team would wipe the floor with the Cleveland Browns.  Of course, we know that the opposite happened.  In the Browns first game in the NFL they played the Eagles who had been the defending NFL champions (fortunately for them they had a different coach by this time).   Browns 35-10.  Browns go to win the NFL Championship in their first year in the league.  ...and 5th in a row.   Bell, out of bitterness, resentment, and jealousy then declares that none of the records from the AAFC will be included with the NFL records, claiming something lame like "we can't verify that we have all of the original stat sheets from all AAFC games".  It was a pile of horseshit of course and just a way to attempt to delegitimize the Browns stellar accomplishments merely because the Browns had wiped his team asses when they played.

Perhaps I should have qualified this.....worst record with at least having coached 40 games:

From NBC Sports:

If you are what your record says you are, Hue Jackson is the second-worst coach in NFL history.

The Browns’ loss today drops Jackson to 11-44-1 as an NFL head coach: 8-8 in Oakland and 3-36-1 in Cleveland. That’s a winning percentage of .205.

How bad is that? There have been 219 coaches in NFL history who coached at least 40 games in their career. Jackson ranks 218th in career winning percentage.

The only coach who was worse was Bert Bell, who led the Eagles to a record of 10-46-2 (.179) from 1936 to 1941. And Bell couldn’t be fired because he was also the owner of the Eagles.

Kush was 11-28-1 as an NFL HC.  He had exactly 40 games.  Lots of people have had worse:  He was at .288

Bill Peterson  1-18

Rod Rust  1-15

David Shula  1952  .268

Gus Bradley...recently HC of the Jags:  19-52  .268

Dick LeBeau...as a HC was only  at .267  win pct.

Marty Morningwheg:   .156   

Steve Spagnuolo  .212

etc.
