Nothing To Prove
Another problem for Belichick is that he has nothing to prove. There’s no reason why he couldn’t move up in the front office and take an executive position. The 71-year-old NFL legend earned an easier life and this can’t be easy for him. His longevity deserves immense respect but the wheels are falling off today.
This is normal and we’ve seen it in the past with Don Shula and other legendary coaches. One NFL executive said: “Their best move is to bring in a young offensive coach with a new GM and start fresh. You let the new offensive coach determine whether Mac can be saved. They need real change (via New York Post).”
