There is a reason the New England Patriots are always at the top of the NFL.
The first is Bill Belichick, and the second is Tom Brady. In my opinion, these two are the best in the league at their respective positions, which allows the Pats to continuously put together successful seasons.
Elliot Harrison of NFL.com recently put together a list of the best coaches in the league, and he gave the top honors to Belichick.
Still an easy choice as the top head coach in the NFL. Belichick had his Patriots in the playoffs last season for the 11th time in his 14 years on the job, with New England advancing all the way to the AFC Championship Game for the eighth time in that span. Belichick also has led New England to five Super Bowls, winning three. And let’s not forget he earned two more rings as Bill Parcells’ defensive coordinator in New York.
I really have nothing to add to what he said. There is nobody in the NFL that can match his football IQ, his defensive genius, and more importantly, his ability to win football games. Obviously he is lucky to have Brady as his signal caller, but you better believe that he has had just as much, if not more of an impact on this team as Brady.
As far as I’m concerned, the only way Belichick will not be considered as the best is when he decides to call it quits. Like Brady, he shows no signs of slowing down, and I am expecting a few more excellent years with Belichick at the helm.
