It's Madden Time...

Boom! Just like that - Hall of Fame.

Congratulations, Coach Madden. It is past time.

~ Coach John Madden ~

His record is 103-32-7.

His 75.9% is the best regular season winning percentage of any NFL coach - ever.

His overall winning percentage is second only to the man they named the trophy after, Vince Lombardi.

His teams never had a season with a losing record.

His teams did not have a losing record against any single opponent during the regular season.

He has a winning record vs. every single HOF coach his teams faced (36-16-2), including Tom Landry, Bud Grant, Don Shula, Hank Stram, George Allen, Sid Gillman, Weeb Ewbank, and yes, Chuck Noll too baby!

His teams' record on the big stage, Monday Night Football is 11-1-1.

Here are the schedules for this weekend's HOF festivities on NFL Network and ESPN and Madden announcing the Raiders vs. Eagles game on NBC.

Madden once played for the Eagles; back in the day he was an offensive lineman who's career was cut short in the preseason by a knee injury. How's that for pregame drama?

Mad love to Coach John!

P.S. Here is Al Davis' introduction of John Madden into the HOF.

Here is John Madden's speech at his HOF induction.

Here is the post-induction interview with Al Davis in which he puts Donco Adam Schefter in his rightful place - under Madden's bus.
