Recent article asks if both Brady and Belichick deserve to be in the Hall of Fame and cites their league leading best record since 2007 as the reason.
Sorry but I can't agree they both belong there. Brady certainly, he has done it on the field and without any quality receivers and with an Oline like a revolving door. and his defense for the past decade has been shoddy.
But Belichick gifted we know as a teacher, has shown he lacks a critical skill that Head Coaches require, namely how to draft properly.
If Belichick had drafted a position player instead of Mallet (wasted pick), didn't get involved in spygate (lost a second round pick), didn't take flyers with early round picks like Tavon Wilson, and again didn't waste a second round pick on yet another QB who will sit the bench, imagine what might have been. Even now they are just a TE or two, and a speedy receiver away from being a number one seed. Oh how those bad draft choices have bitten the entire Patriot Franchise in the butt.
Then add in that his selections of both wideouts and CBs has been atrocious and you really see what might have been.
Then, when you add in yet again that he has wasted draft points by trading up unnecessarily thereby giving away 3rd and 4th round picks and you start to gag.
We are not done yet. Lastly when you look at his debacles with that crazy wideout from the Bengals and that bad attitude DT from the Redskins you
realize those lost draft choices could have resulted in a few SuperBowls that he could have won but threw away simply because his player personnel skills are so disastrous.
Until Belichick learns how to select players or can show us he can win without Brady, I have no reason to believe he is deserving of the HoF, at least not as a Head Coach. As a teacher of position players maybe but that is another story.
