Yeah, I'm not getting this one. We know that Caldwell made some decisions that helped turn around the Baltimore Ravens offense last year, which in turn helped lead to their Super Bowl run. However, that same offense then collapsed this year -- on the run, they collapsed so completely that they had one of the worst running games of all time. Caldwell went to a Super Bowl with the Colts, but we all agree he basically was carried there by Peyton Manning and all the leftover talent from the Dungy era, right? Bill Belichick took a team without Tom Brady and coached it to 11-5; Jim Caldwell took a team without Peyton Manning and coached it to 2-14. And we all remember he made some completely ridiculous game-management decisions, particularly in regards to timeouts.

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
