SWEEP THE LEG... er, I mean "DO YOUR JOB".

A few years ago, I made a prediction in a Fark thread that Brady and Belichick would retire at the same time because neither would want to risk failure and their legacy potentially being reduced to "they were nothing without that other guy." But it looks like that's not going to end up being a problem for either.

And yet, a majority of his peers have apparently not done their jobs.  It'll be interesting if Sean Peyton and Mike Tomlin can reliably make the playoffs without their star QBs.

That Belichick didn't ruin Brady, but used Brady to win Super Bowls says a lot on its own. Marino never won a Super Bowl, and Elway won his Super Bowls late in his career.

And Belichick was able to win a bunch of SBs. Mark Levy and Dan Reeves never won anything. So yes, Belichick did just do his job, but he did it well.

Yeah.  I figured the same.

Now, honestly, it adds to both their legacies.  Before you figured it was just amazing luck the two of them ended up together.

Now... Belichick, in pretty quick fashion, drafted a rookie qb and got into the playoffs.  For a few weeks, they were the number 1 seed!

And Brady sails off to Tampa Bay and then immediately wins yet another SB.

They're both just amazing.

/Someone last year (I think it was last year) in a fark thread said Belichick will likely stick around to break the all-time wins record.  I disagree, his motivation is to prove he doesn't need Brady to win... but I'm sure the all-time wins record would be a nice icing on the cake.  He's 39 wins away... that's 4 winning seasons.   Might be a stretch to say he'll be coaching for 4 more years, but it's doable.

Subby, the Patriots were not supposed to be this good this year, not with a rookie QB. People were expecting another mediocre season like last year. So yes, Belichick did a good job.

Hell, he'll coach for another decade+ barring a complete drop-off that forces a firing. He's in good shape for his age and he seems like a "die on the sidelines" Joe Pa type

He's not going anywhere until he passes Shula

A good number of their defensive starters opted out last year so they had to rely on the offense to win games. That's not the case this year.

I'll be curious to see where he ends up ranking higher, in coach of the year voting or executive of the year voting. Belichick the GM had a hell of an off-season between the draft and free agency, and he really set the table for Belichick the coach to succeed.

Oh I'm aware of that, I'm suggesting he'll coach even longer than that so long as his health and record hold up

Zac Taylor is getting coach of the year, more than likely. Bill probably won't even be top 3. Exec, whotf knows?

I still chuckle that the Pats have a player named Jakobi Meyers.

I bet he has a lot of suits.

Yeah, he just did his job and that's it.

Vrabel has a better chance than Taylor, IMO.

I'm just going by what the betting sites say, but yeah he would work too
