LeSean McCoy doesn’t think much of Bill Belichick.
Appearing on FOX Sports’ SPEAK, the former All-Pro running back declared that “It’s over” for Belichick in New England and that he will never win consistently again. Many in the football community believe quarterback Tom Brady won the debate of who deserved the most credit for the Patriots’ dynasty that spanned nearly two decades.
McCoy said the Patriots looked “so regular” since Brady left after the 2019 season.
“It’s over for Belichick. It’s over,” McCoy said, via Sports Illustrated. “I’ve never seen the Patriots pay so many guys on defense at one time. They’re doing it now that Tom is gone. It’s over. This is the real Belichick. The winning percentage, playing with Brady, is 77 percent. Without Tom Brady, you wouldn’t even guess. 47 percent. He don’t win no games without Tom Brady.
“Since Tom Brady has left, they look so regular. Seriously though, when I watch the tape and I really watch them, they’re getting beat up front in the running game, defenders missing tackles – they look bad. They can’t do anything on offense. Every coach in the AFC, for all of these years, when they had Tom Brady, they’re saying the same thing I’m saying right now. Without Tom Brady, Belichick is a good coach. Stop with all of this he’s the greatest of all time. He’s not.”
The scathing criticisms aren’t likely to end for Belichick anytime soon if the Patriots continue to lose football games.
Last season, the Patriots started the year 2-4 before winning 8 of their last 11 games to make the playoffs.
The current team started this year 0-1 but has plenty of time to show that they can be better. However, nobody is thinking that this Patriots team can contend now or anytime in the future.
