They don't. And they often make good teams worse.

Pollock got Bowman the players, and he shut his mouth and let them play. End of.
You are underestimating Bowman's contribution big time !

He was lucky to have the teams he had in Montreal, Detroit and Pittsburg but he was able to put all his star players omn the same page and motivate the hell out of his bottom liners.
