As we get closer to the end of the regular 2021 NFL season, it looks like there are two favorite contenders for the NFL’s Coach of the Year award: Bill Belichick of the NFL. New England Patriots and Kliff Kingsbury’s The Arizona Cardinals. Both currently hold the 1st seed spot in their respective conventions, which is not something many have seen this year.

Kingsbury, who actually spent time as a reserve midfielder under Belichick in the early 2000s, believes that NFL the legend will win the Coach of the Year award for the fourth time this season – and possibly every season until he decides to hang up the clipboard.

“They should just name the award Bill Belichick and when he retires, bring it back,” said Kingsbury, through the official Cardinals . website. “Until he retires, I don’t think anyone else should get that award. He should be the coach once a year.”

Belichick was asked about this quote on The Greg Hill Show, and he was flattered. The future Pro Football Hall of Fame coach also thinks Kingsbury deserves this year’s award.

“It was great when Kliff toss that bouquet. I’ll throw it right back. Kliff did a great job and should be Coach of the Year,” said Belichick, via Mike Reiss of ESPN.

Kingsbury is in its third season with the Cardinals, going 5-10-1 in 2019, 8-8 in 2020 and currently top the league 10-2 as it heads into the crucial NFC West game in Monday night with Rams. His decision to verify for Kyler Murray 1 overall choice in 2019 NFL Drafts is a big reason Arizona finds itself in its current situation, as the former Oklahoma star is enjoying a one-year career and is a legitimate MVP candidate. The Cardinals have been properly built with some solid draft decisions, a big deal to deliver DeAndre Hopkins to town and some impressive free agency deals.

For the patriots, all seemed lost a year ago when brave cat leave town for Tampa Bay Buccaneers and win a Super Bowl in his first season leaving New England, but the Patriots have now found their new franchise quarterback and are in contention for a return. With the support of a great defense and great running game, Mac Jones showed improvement almost every week and came close to winning the Offensive Rookie of the Year award.

Both coaches deserve this award, and they both know it.
