Bill Belichick has won more than any active coach. He has also taken criticism more than any active coach.
From LaDainian Tomlinson saying the Patriots’ lack of class comes from the head coach, to Don Shula referring to Belichick as “Beli-cheat,” some of the best in the business have ripped Belichick.
The latest example comes from Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams, who spent some time on Twitter interacting with fans. One fan in New England told Williams that he should finish his career with the Patriots, and Williams said he wouldn’t because he has heard no one likes Belichick, with the exception of Tom Brady.
“From what I’m told only Tom Brady likes the head coach so no thank you I’m happy where I am,” Williams wrote.
It’s unusual to see a player take an unprovoked shot at an opposing coach like that. Unless the opposing coach is Belichick.
