Bill Belichick, the greatest coach in the history of the NFL, turns 64 today. Happy birthday Bill! Here are some of his greatest moments. The first being "We're on to Cincinnati". The media was beginning to doubt the Patriots after a brutal loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football. Everyone remembers Trent Dilfer saying "they're just not good anymore!" in regards to the Patriots. The next game was home against the 3-0 Bengals and everyone thought Cincinnati would role into Foxboro and lay a beatdown on New England. What happened was just the opposite. A 43-17 walloping of the Bengals that spring-boarded their Super Bowl winning season.
Belichick has a deep hatred for addressing the media. If you give him any excuse to tune the questions out or snort into the microphone he will. My favorite is when he just demolished all the microphones in his path at the NFL Owner Meetings recently.
Even though it was a disappointing end to the 2015 campaign for the Patriots, there is no doubt they will be right back in the AFC Championship game this year. It would have been the ultimate revenge for Belichick, Brady and the Patriots for them to win it all last year but it just wasn't in the cards. Having said that, winning the Super Bowl right in the middle of the Deflategate controversy is still bad-ass. Only a Belichick coached team would have the mental fortitude to block out all the noise and shove it back in everyone's face.
Happy birthday to Bill Belichick, the greatest coach of all-time. This will most likely be the year the Patriots get one for the thumb and raise their collective middle-finger one more time at the league.
