Belichick is “good for a while” to keep coaching

Getty Images

Patriots owner Robert Kraft told PFT Live during the league meetings last month that he wants to see coach Bill Belichick stay on the job into his 80s, citing the examples of Warren Buffett and Rupert Murdoch, both of whom are still going strong well into their ninth decade.

So how long does Belichick plan to coach?

“I am kind of short-sighted here,” Belichick tells Suzy Welch of CNBC, “so I’m good certainly good here this year, good for a while I like what I am doing I enjoy all parts of the game the team building, training camp, game days, the excitement of Sunday.” (If Belichick is “excited” on Sundays, what does he look like when he’s bored?)

The bottom line is Belichick still thinks that his demanding, stressful, and exhausting job is fun, even after all these years.

“It really is, it beats working,” he said.

With that attitude, Kraft may end up being right about Belichick coaching into his 80s.

    Time for the trolls to roll out the ‘he’d be nothing without Brady’ comments. Until there’s another Brady article, then it will be all about the magical system and Belichick.
    Meanwhile the rest of us will continue to enjoy watching two of the GOATs doing what they do.

    I’d bet that Belichick will still be coaching long after Adam Gase, Vance Joseph and that new dude in Buffalo are long gone.

    Honestly…..winning the SuperBowl should NOT be the mantra & glory of 31 NFL teams. WHAT they should be preaching during camp and during the season is BEAT THE HECK out of the Patriots and don’t let them sniff the playoffs. THAT is the standard the NFL has become. Every team that beats the Patriots should get a Lombardi trophy.

    It’s amazing how much attention is showered on the young athletes and so little on the architects an constructors of the teams. Bob Kraft is successful because he broke the code – hire the best coaches and pay them! Let them do their job and tune out the media noise. I bet if you compared coaching budgets it would show that NE pays current coaches two or three times what Buffalo or Jets pay (omitting fired coaches salaries, of course). Before he’s done Belichick is going to force the Pats stadium to rotate banners.

    “I bet if you compared coaching budgets it would show that NE pays current coaches two or three times what Buffalo or Jets pay”

    I think you’d be wrong about that. Belichick will be a top 3 paid coach but most of the rest of the staff not so much. Josh probably gets paid above average as the only exception I would guess.

    For evidence, Troy Brown has said on air during the comcast shows he’s on a few times that the Pats offered him the receiver’s coach job a couple of times and he turned it down because “you get paid 70-80,000 a year, and have to work 80-90 hours a week and its just not worth it”.

    His cushy tv gig probably pays him as much and the work week is a heck of a lot shorter. Not to mention he has the bulk of the offseason as off time, and doesn’t go back to work till training camp and the preseason games kick in.

    =================
    I’m a Pats fan.

    Kraft hired the right guy, so give him credit.

    But he thought he was hiring a Parcells-style coach who would restore order in the locker room after Carroll screwed it up. Coughlin might have seemed as good a choice, but he was busy with the Jags.

    But don’t give Kraft too much credit.

    NOBODY could have predicted that Belichick would be this good.

    NOBODY could have predicted that Belichick would be a MUCH better coach than Parcells.

    And for you haters, remember that Parcells never won a Superbowl without Belichick as his DC.

    When Belichick, Brady and the Patriots win their next Super Bowl, nitwit nation will be pointing to warm Gatorade in locker rooms and magic systems in a feeble attempt to explain it, just praying to tuck themselves in at night once again without owning up to personally witnessing an obviously great franchise and team even though it’s as plain as the nose on their face.

    Example: How could the Patriots beat the mighty Dolphins?

    Answer: “Must be all the invisible cheating”

    Okay, pal…maybe you should lie down and rest for awhile. Here’s a nice cold cup of water and we’all check in you in a bit.

    It’s sad that these ridiculous excuses are the only way some people can get through this historic dominant run. There really ought to be support groups out there for them.

    BB has made some major errors in the draft that I’ve been critical of (passing on Dez Bryant, major reaches for Ras-I Dowling [who?], Tavon Wilson, Jordan Richards, etc. But after inexplicably trading Jamie Collins mid-season for almost nothing and still winning the SB, I’m drinking the Kool-Aid. In Bill I trust.

    He’ll be the Godfather when he’s done coaching, handing out precious advice and opinions to a select few from his private mansion, in a smoking jacket.

  28. stevejjones says: Apr 13, 2017 10:33 AM

    Brady and Belichek are not magic. Belichek is serious and professional and he rules by fear. He has total power so players have to listen to him. Brady is smart enough to stick with a plan and is equally professional with his training, practice. He has a quick mind to see plays develop and he’s equally ruthless (willingness to cheat “deflategate”). The Patriot was is not easy to duplicate as many players and coaches are not as smart, have meddling owners, and diva players. I used to hate Brady and Belichek but I realize they just take the games more seriously from an orgizational status vs individual stats, ego, and contract goals. I don’t think this type of organization can spring up anywhere other than flinty cold Irish New England. When Shannahan tried to get RG3 to watch tape half the town thought he was trying to run a plantation.

    Actually without Brady he’s 14-6. Math not being a trolls strongsuit I’ll clue you in. That’s well above .500. Sure, throw in Cleveland to skewer that number but remember this, the year before Modell pulled the rug out from under Belichick and the organization and weaseled off to Baltimore the Browns made the playoffs. Is there any doubt that given time BB would have set his plan into place at Cleveland? No, no there’s not.

  33. johnodocks says: Apr 13, 2017 10:45 AM

    Bill Belichick was meant to be a football coach. Despite not being a rah-rah guy like Pete Carroll, you can tell he loves it by how much he puts into it. The fact that he doesn’t feel like coaching football is “work” only proves how right he is for the job. As a football fan, it’s a pleasure to see teams as well prepared and hard working as his are.

  34. superpatriotsfan says: Apr 13, 2017 10:47 AM

    Lol yeah sure Bill. Once you see your precious record plummet without Brady you’ll think twice about working into your 80s.

    Without Brady, Belichick is an under .500 coach, see Cleveland.

    Greatest GM and Coach of all time, obviously.

    They hired a commissioner to cheat him and the team, they continue to try to do it, but he still stands above it all.

    No other GM and Coach has ever needed to experience what BB has where collusion to cheat his team runs rampant with secret meetings and discussions signed off on by Goodell, in the history of sports in the entire world.

    And, if BB dealt brady tomorrow for picks, he’d have JimmyG and the Pats doing 10+ wins every year as opposed ot the 12+ wins every year he gets with Brady.

    2008 proved that.

    Have a nice day, trolls!

    Can anyone from “Brady made Belichick” crowd explain how? We know that a Patriots system is so good a high school QB can have success in it. Sure Brady has had the most success playing in that system but does anyone doubt Belichick could have had the same success with a lot other QBs playing in the Patriots system? If Belichick can have a winning record with the likes of Matt Cassell, Garropolo, Bridgette, couldn’t he have won multiple SBs with any other HOF caliber QB? Give the man his due respect. Belichick is without a doubt the GOAT.

  57. 6ball says: Apr 13, 2017 11:27 AM

    .
    Since childhood football has been Belichick’s life. Even if at some point he gives up the coaching, he’ll undoubtedly stay active on the personnel side.

    His retirement options would be limited to funeral director or working in a slaughterhouse.

    Without Brady, Belichick is an under .500 coach, see Cleveland.

    ————

    Another myth.

    1991 – BB arrives, and starts cleaning out deadwood/older players.

    1992 – BB wants to bring in Testaverde in a trade because he sees Kosar fading with slow feet, so he suggests the deal to Modell. Modell rejects it in fear of ticket sales plummeting due to Kosar being a hometown hero, in the midst of Modell secretly plotting to move the team to smelly Baltimore.

    1993 – BB finally gets the QB he wants with Testaverde, with improved footwork, releasing the ball, accuracy and good progression reads which is important in the Ray Perkins offense, with a touch of some West Coast.

    1994 – BB has the Browns in the playoffs, winning a WC round game vs the upstart Pats.

    1995 – Many publications had Cleveland as the AFC choice for the SB, over the overrated Steelers, who limped into the SB after a massive chokejob at home to SD the year prior. Modell announced the move in late Sept, and the Browns went into a tailspin.

    Those are the facts.

    Any educated adult would see these elements as a progression, which speaks to BB’s brilliance economics and cap management, which shows today why he’s the greatest GM ever as well.

    BB wouldn’t have 5 rings without Brady, but he might have 2 or 3 without cheating owners working with Goodell and having another QB he had developed along the way, as a Brady knock off.

    Have a nice day!

    From Wikipedia:
    Cowboys drafted Dez Bryant with the 24th overall pick.
    Patriots drafted Devin McCourty with the 27th overall pick.
    So how did the Patriots pass on Dez Bryant? He wasn’t available. Devin McCourty is a great player. Are you suggesting Belichick should have traded up in hopes of acquiring Dez Bryant? Because having big named receivers hasn’t been the norm for the Patriots success. Belichick took a safety and he is a top 5 player at his position. So how is this is a mistake?

  67. badboysgetspanked says: Apr 13, 2017 12:06 PM

    Seriously, you are going to critize BB for drafting Brady and winning with him?? Isn’t that the whole idea to surround yourself with the best available talent?? Funny, I don’t hear these comments about Bill Walsh and Montana. BB has done an impeccable job with the Pats. And although Brady is the face of the team, BB has done an excellent job of bringing in many other very good players and coaching them up and win.

    The other thing that many here do not consider is that when BB “retires” from coaching, he may very well continue as GM. That is a job he is well proven at.

    Don Shula is a self centered ego maniac who makes ignorant and arrogant comments.

    These haters amuse me…when Brady and BB retire you will see..yeah, like your team is going to improve from what they are now.Do you not know that you are basically saying they are the greatest while you are trying to deny it at the same time?Or does that confuse your little minds?

    “Brady and Belichick both retire after they win it this coming year…”

    Yes yes no doubt you’re saying that on your knees, head bowed and praying like mad that it would actually happen.

    Brady if they win the SB again I could see retiring since his wife has been after him apparently for the last 3 seasons to do so and he wants time with his kids. If they don’t win it all though he’ll be back.

    But Belichick? You’re dreaming.

    Bill, your going to need more rafters to accommodate all the Championship Banners you’ll be putting up over the next several years…

  78. mikespillane337 says: Apr 13, 2017 1:51 PM

    Just use the banners instead of artificial turf..it will last a good three more years then just start on the parking lot…hey haters,we will forever snatch your dreams, now sleep.

    Belichick has mastered what it takes to build and coach a consistently dominant winner in an era designed to keep that from happening. He may be blessed with an owner that gives him the freedom and tools to work his magic and a QB that buys into his philosophy but that only happens because he has earned the mutual trust they all have in each other. What they have done together is more than impressive, it is the definition of great. I respect and appreciate it, I just wish they were doing it in a different division.

    Good for another 102 wins? (to become #1 all time)

    At an average of 10 wins a season (which is insane), that’s over 10 seasons.

    Good to see Bill upbeat knowing upfront that the best he can go is 14-2 given Landry guaranteeing the Dolphins will beat the Pats twice.

    Belichick and the Patriots have turned the AFC East and the AFC into Groundhog Day.

    My favorite part of the CNBC interview was his one-word association for Deflategate: ridiculous.

    Actually without Brady he’s 14-6. Math not being a trolls strongsuit I’ll clue you in.

    __________________________________

    Actually, Bill is 19-17 as Patriots coach without Brady. Overall, he is 55-61 as head coach without Brady. How dare anybody skew things with the actual facts, right? Honesty is obviously not your strong-suit.

    Cherry pickers like you are a big reason people don’t like Pats fans.

    Football historians should reasonably elevate Belichick into the #2 spot on the coaches list. Only those who are not knowledgeable could possibly elevate him to #1. The greatest success an NFL coach ever had was winning 5 championships in a 7 year period. Belichick has been unable to win 2 straight, let alone 2 straight then 3 straight in a mere seven years. Belichick enjoys longevity that Lombardi did not. However, no one comes close to the dominance that Lombardi had, thus the trophy should always be named for the guy who’s dominance the NFL will never see again. Belichick is the best by far today, but you can’t possibly compare him to Lombardi unless you ignore the numbers.
