Sports Illustrated puts Bill Belichick at the top of NFL elite


Many around the sporting world consider Bill Belichick to be one of the greatest head coaches of all time. National pundits think so as well, although some may think he’s lost a bit of his luster.

Colton Orr of Sports Illustrated put together his list of the best coaches in the NFL currently. Belichick was listed at No.1, although Orr indicates he believes Belichick is on a downward trend.

Even still, a downward trend does not diminish Belichick’s ability to game plan week by week according to Orr. He still is one of the most devastating game planners in all of the NFL.

“There is nowhere for Belichick to climb at this point, seeing as, at age 69, he is unlikely to pilot another 20-year dynasty yielding a Super Bowl title almost every other year,” Orr wrote. “That said, he is still the most destructive week-by-week game planner in the sport and has a chance to silence the small chorus of doubters who have arisen in the wake of Tom Brady’s most recent Super Bowl.”

“There is no one doubting Belichick’s potency or ability to reach the playoffs at this point … with or without Brady,”

Now as the Patriots get set to embark on another season without Tom Brady, Belichick will have another  chance to prove that he can win without the quarterback
