Craig is the most surprising indeed. In the 80's all you heard was Roger Craig this,  Roger Craig that...

First time ever a 1000yd rusher and a 1000yd receiver in the same season.

He was a Finalist this past season.   But didn't make it again.

Yes, should be in....being #1 on this list seems evidence of that.

Only Don Shula is correct.

And, this is sort of a hint:   In order to lose a lot of games....you have to be considered good enough to be kept around a long time.   Seven of the losing coaches in history are in the HOF for their coaching.   (Shula/Halas being two of them)
