During rabies the virus tells the brain to attack the body. What if I stop the brain via a coma, so it doesn't attack the body while the immune system kills off the virus? That would be so cool, right?

This actually happened. You can read about it here.

From boing boing:

Rabies is not 100% fatal (to humans) if you have shown symptoms, but all previous survival cases DID receive the vaccine after symptoms had shown. This was the first case of survival without the vaccine.

That's what I call a nice, system hack.
