8. Belichick’s Pick
Bill Belichick is the most successful coach in NFL history. Rival fans despise him but his knowledge of the sport must be respected. He also had an interesting take on the best quarterback he coached against. However, Rodgers didn’t even enter the conversation. Instead, he opted for Peyton Manning. Admittedly, the Patriots don’t play the Packers very often. But it was still interesting to see Belichick’s perspective.
Belichick admired Manning’s ability to call his plays. “He basically called every play by adjusting and/or changing the play once he saw what the defense was doing,” he told the Boston Globe. He excelled at using the cadence and recognizing blitzes, and more than anyone single offensive player, he forced us to change and adapt defensive game plans.” The coach loved the challenge of trying to outclass Manning.
