Contrary to the first paragraph, it appears that Tom Flores also won Super Bowls as a player (Super Bowl IV with the Chiefs), assistant coach (Super Bowl XI with the Raiders) and head coach (Super Bowls XV and XVIII with the Raiders). --Metropolitan90 09:26, 6 January 2006 (UTC)

- I see no harm in adding the content, however, the prose in which it was written in does not comply with Wikipedia's policies. Another editor, or myself, will re-write it so it complies with this encyclopedia's standards. -- 17:39, 2 July 2008 (UTC)
I think that this should be included in the article since that what Chicagoans refer to him as. --Chitomcgee 05:01, 25 June 2006 (UTC)
- I don't think that anyone would have a problem with adding a line explaining that. However, changing the "Coach" heading to "Da Coach" is not the best way to add that information to the article.
- Thanks --Claygate 01:20, 26 June 2006 (UTC)
Should it have it's own section...about how he become alot more famous because of the famous SNL skit...or should it just be mentioned in another section..and if so which one? Chitomcgee 04:54, 28 June 2006 (UTC)
- You could add a new section titled such as "In popular culture" to add that information. --Claygate 13:39, 28 June 2006 (UTC)
I just added a link to the article that pertains to the SNL sketch in which "da coach" was made famous, and I think that should suffice --Chitomcgee 19:27, 28 June 2006 (UTC)
I'm wondering, are there any people willing to add information on Mr. Ditka's acting career? I've only got info on two places he's shown up (Game Over (film) and Quarterback Attack), but I do know he's been on multiple movies and television shows as a guest star. Anyone? - Kitsune Sniper / David Silva 02:57, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
I believe he played a played a somewhat more significant role than just a cameo on Kicking & Screaming which was the film that starred Will Ferrell.
Yes - He played himself in Kicking and Screaming. 22.214.171.124 21:49, 18 June 2007 (UTC)
Failed Good Article Status
I failed this article because it is insufficiently referenced. joturner 04:01, 30 March 2006 (UTC)
- Fair enough; however, with sports commentators around North America dropping all three names together, it might not be a bad idea to mention the "double achievement" on all three pages. That way, we prevent what could be perceived as an inconsistency. Andy Saunders 04:57, 5 February 2007 (UTC)
- No, the triple achievement is a different or higher level of an achievement. The dual win as a player and coach is correctly listed on Dungy's article. Ronbo76 05:01, 5 February 2007 (UTC)
- What is really sad, is that some editors see this difference and edit out the assistant win in the articles to include Dungy. That indicates that they know or can appreciate the difference but want to include Dungy. Ronbo76 05:14, 5 February 2007 (UTC)
Where does he live now? Shouldn't that be put somewhere? 126.96.36.199 21:50, 18 June 2007 (UTC)
"Iron" Mike Ditka
There was a commercial for something (which presently escapes me) using Cathy (as in "AAAAACK!!!") showing the coach joining her in line for (presumably) the product in the ad; if somebody remembers the product, could you add this to his article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:27, 8 November 2008 (UTC)
Coack Ditka's coments
Coach Ditka was asked by Chris Berman today (2/7/10) on Super Bowl NFL Countdown, whether he thought New Orleans and its team were ready for the Super Bowl? Coach Ditka replied basically by saying, you pray and do whatever it takes to get to the Super Bowl, while just a few segments earlier he questioned the Colts' decision to rest some of its players looking forward to the postseason.
'C'MON MAN! WHICH IS IT? WHICH DO YOU REMEMBER, THE GIANTS' DEFEATING THE PATRIOTS' OR THE PATRIOTS ALMOST HAVING A PERFECT SEASON?'
Eliminated the part about Ditka touching a kid
Hi. I eliminated the above mentioned section because the source did not in any way match the claim (it was an article concerning Walter Payton's bio). I was also unable to find any other mention of this incident anywhere. Hope I did it the right way, as Wikipedia has changed since I last made an edit.
