2 Reasons Patriots Bill Belichick Needs To Get Out Of Tom Brady’s Shadow

New England Patriots Head coach Bill Belichick had to go through a rough season last year without Tom Brady below center, as New England stumbled on a 7-9 record. Meanwhile, Brady won a Super Bowl with Tampa Bay Buccaneers and received excellent media coverage, with many experts suggesting that Brady has more to do with the success of the Patriots than Belichick, which has always been a gap. Well, even with his success with the Patriots 7-4, Bill Belichick is still in the shadow of Tom Brady. Here are two reasons why that no longer happens.

Belichick has found his midfielder

One of the stories that emerged after Tom Brady’s victory with the Buccaneers was that the Hall of Famer could succeed without a coach but the coach couldn’t do it without the Hall of Fame quarterback.

Belichick still hasn’t won the Super Bowl without Brady but it has to be admitted that he To be succeed without Brady. Not only that, but Belichick seems to have found a worthy successor to lead the Patriots forward in Mac Jones.

No one said that Jones will be next Brady, or even almost as good. But Belichick, who perfected the winning formula in New England after experimenting with Cleveland Browns, knows exactly what he’s looking for in his next signal caller.

Belichick wants someone the winner and the one who has experience playing for a tough coach. Belichick is confident that someone like Jones, who played with old friend Nick Saban, can handle the demands of the tough Patriots system. So far, it seems he’s been right.

It’s fitting that Belichick’s next Patriots franchise quarterback will have a connection to the head coach’s early start in Cleveland. While the Patriots have yet to win anything big with the Belichick-Jones partnership, it’s clear they’re on the right track, thanks to the head coach’s leadership and decision-making.

Belichick made his off-season moves savvy

Overall look at the Patriots’ season. With Brady as quarterback for the Patriots, New England was rarely brought on freely. But Belichick knew he had to adjust without his star midfielder and make the whole team better and fast.

He went out and signed seven players on his first day of free agency, including passing star Matt Judon, who contributed to the Patriots’ defensive success.

New England has allowed for the fewest points per game and the fewest thirds per game in the NFL, thanks to newcoms like Judon and Jalen Mills, old faces like Kyle Van Noy and diamonds in the rough, such as JC Jackson.

On the offensive side of the ball, Belichick focused on increasing speed at the collection points – Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne- and reliability at the narrow end points, Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith. Result? An effective offense that ranks sixth in the NFL in points per game.

The Patriots heads had to go out and execute, but this wouldn’t have been possible without the vision of Bill Belichick. Belichick is proving he deserves more credit for thriving without Tom Brady.
