Bill Belichick is the most successful coach in the NFL with an unmatched six Super Bowl victories as New England’s head coach. However, in 2023, the Patriots tripped into a dark pit of despair. They’ve repeatedly suffered depressing defeats as sliding quarterback Mac Jones shows that he’s a terrible replacement for GOAT Tom Brady. But how did it get to this point?
Well, there are certainly many reasons. Today, we’ll look at all of the major reasons why Belichick can’t win without his former leading man Brady. Find out why some fans and experts think it’s time for New England to move on from their legendary coach.
Lack of Motivation
Many people are questioning Belichick’s motivation to win. After all, the 71-year-old is an eight-time Super Bowl champion. We already mentioned how he led the Patriots to six titles. But he also won a pair of rings as the New York Giants defensive coordinator in the late ’80s.
Some experts believe that he desperately wants to prove that he can win without Brady. However, recent performances show that Belichick isn’t as bellicose as he once was. He is no longer the charismatic presence that he once was and he’s making increasingly poor decisions (via Defector).
