I finally get it. I finally get the Captains stance on Bill Belichick being the leader of the Patriots.
Yesterday, when the Captain explained that Barack Obama wasn't responsible for the death of Osama Bin Laden, the Navy Seals were. It clicked. I consider Bill Belichick as one of the best coaches of all time, however, he doesn't deserve that from me since you know.... he wasn't ever on the field when the Patriots won the Superbowl.
It's great that we can finally admit that Brady is much more important to the success of the Patriots then Bill, because Tom is the one actually running those game winning drives. I always was on the side of the players make the coach into a great coach, and I'm glad the Captain is on the same page.
You see Bill Belichick sucked when he was the Browns coach. He couldn't do anything right. He had 1 winning season and was a cast off. Once he was handed Bill Parcells, Pete Carroll, and Scott Pioli's guys he started to win and have success. And once he started the last player selected from the Parcell's regieme in Tom Brady.... boom. He became a great coach.
Some people will argue that he makes the calls or orders to put Tom Brady in those situations to win. But not to the Captain, Tom Brady, that incredible defense and Adam Vinitieri (sp) is the only reason the Patriots won and Bill was just along for the ride.
I do like Tom Brady, I do. I think that he's the best QB of all time and I'm glad he's finally getting the credit he deserves by the Captain. I always thought that he was being extra harsh on the Golden Boy because he wanted to push the blame off Bill, but it seems the Captain is hard on him, because he understands that he alone is the only reason the Patriots can win another title.
Glad we got to the bottom of this.
