  1. Belicheats leadership skills depends on how much money he pays the nfl n refs before each game and a bonus amount to make sure Tom Lady (yep Lady) doesn’t get hurt. This team has been caught cheating more times than Carter’s got pills and virtually NOTHING has been done. Why? Because the nfl commissioner sucks Belicheats d**k. The seasons are rigged for who they want in the super bowl. Period. It’s all about the money. Vegas wins, the nfl wins.

  2. More than any other team sport, Football really is a team sport. You don't have to be naturally gifted. If the system is efficient and players can do their part, then you will win. The WHOLE is greater than the sum of its parts. You can't say the same in other sports where talent and gifted athletes really do determine the outcome 99% of the time. Not in Football.

  3. with all these meetoo females getting football players in trouble ,the last thing I wanna see is one giving enterviews about football

  4. from what i have seen belichick is the epitome of a leader. much respect to this man and tom but bill is the true wizard behind the patriots success

  5. The NFL needs to name something BIG after this guy…….. His teams accomplishments are NOT an accident. He even takes it personally when they lose…. This is a coach who wills his team to Victory & that's nothing short of incredible/ Talent/ Professional!!!

  6. I think the SB victory over the Rams may have cemented him as the best coach ever. The Pats just decimated the Rams offense. I think this was his win. The Falcons game was Brady's. Flame away.

  7. On the “fun to watch” scale MJ has it on the offense, defense, sideline, interviews pre- and post game, mentoring, etc. All this business about the g.o.a.t doesn’t really matter to the average fan.

  8. There have been a handful of absolutely legendary Head Coaches in the NFL in my lifetime (I was born in late September 1971). Bill Parcells, Tom Landry, Don Shula, and Bill Walsh are the first ones that come to mind. Certainly Joe Gibbs and John Madden belong in the discussion. There are a select few others, and I won't include anybody still coaching in this group, as their legacies are still being forged. But I will say this. Bill Belichick is the gold standard for Head Coaches in the modern era. Yes, he's benefited tremendously by working under an owner in Robert Kraft who will do what is necessary to win, aggressively pursuing talent in free agency. Belichick has also been incredibly fortunate to have the great Tom Brady under center for the vast majority of his time in New England. But anybody who watched this most recent playoffs has to tip the cap to Coach Belichick. His Pats went up against the #1 and 2 scoring offenses in the NFL in the AFC Championship Game and Super Bowl, Kansas City and Los Angeles, and his defense shut both out in the first half. You don't oft stop offensive juggernauts for four quarters-the Chiefs broke through in the second half, but the Rams were made to feel so uncomfortable on offense against Belichick's schemes-the defensive unit, for all intents and purposes, won the game. Yes, Brady got hot late, and led the offense on the only touchdown of the game late to clinch it, but holding a unit that averaged a whopping 33 ppg during the regular season to a field goal-you can't help but recognize greatness when you see it.

    The Patriots can beat you so damned many ways. Brady, still playing at an incredibly high level, if protected, can pick the best defenses apart. Their defense can beat you. Their coaching can beat you. Their drafting, their salary cap management, their talent assessment-before the season even begins, the Patriots are already a leg up on the rest of the NFL. Six Super Bowls, and nine appearances, overall, during the Belichick era, will likely never be matched. Hell, the Pats might not even be done yet. Who's to say they don't get back next year and win it again?

    But while giving credit where credit is due, the Patriots are not the greatest team in NFL history. That honor goes to Vince Lombardi's Packers.

    Am I a Packers fan? Hell, yes. Does that invalidate my opinion, which is based on historical fact? It shouldn't. You can try to diminish that group's accomplishments by saying "there were fewer teams", or, "there were fewer playoff games played back then". Well, yes, there were in both instances. But you couldn't just sneak into the playoffs because you played in a weak division. To make the playoffs, you had to win your division. In 1960, 1961 and 1962, it was the winner of the East against the winner in the West for all the marbles. The Packers lost the NFL Championship in 1960 13-17 to the NFL-best 10-2 Philadelphia Eagles. Lombardi's 8-4 Packers came up about 5 yards short of winning the game on the last play. The Packers played in nine more playoff games under Lombardi between 1961 and 1967. They never lost again. Five NFL Championships in seven years, including the first two Super Bowls. And while the Patriots won their first three Super Bowls by a field goal each time, the Packers were destroying their Championship Game/Super Bowl opponents:

    1961 NFL Championship Green Bay Packers 31, New York Giants 0
    1962 NFL Championship Green Bay Packers 16, New York Giants 7
    1963 NFL Championship Green Bay Packers 23, Cleveland Browns 12
    1964 Super Bowl I Green Bay Packers 35, Kansas City Chiefs 10
    1965 Super Bowl II Green Bay Packers 33, Oakland Raiders 14

    The Packers outscored their opponents 138 to 43 in those games, a 19 point average margin of victory. In the Super Bowls, that margin of victory rises to 22 points.

    Those five Packer teams went 55-13-1 in the regular season, an .809 winning percentage. Add in the nine playoff games, and the Packers were 64-13-1, good for an .831 winning percentage.

    And, while I do think the cheating allegations against the Patriots are somewhat overblown, the fact remains that the NFL had to take punitive steps against the team. How much Belichick was involved is debatable, but the team under his watch did break the league's rules, not just once, but twice. It shouldn't diminish the team's historical standing-they're still one of the greatest teams in the league's history, but they cannot be considered the very best.

    I have the greatest admiration for the Patriots franchise, and what they have done. I'm just glad the Packers had a chance to beat New England in the Super Bowl before Kraft had Belichick and Brady in place. But, respectfully, Vince Lombardi's name is on the Super Bowl trophy for a reason. And there it shall remain.

  9. I've been a Packer fan for decades but you gotta give credit when it's due. This is the greatest coach of all time and you need to do more than let the air out of a few footballs to have the success they've had over the long term.

  10. 14:54 "Thanks. I know what Annapolis and the Naval Academy meant to the Belichecks (sic) and we will proudly display this." (I just don't know how to pronounce Belichick)

  11. Have you noticed there's a mix of admiration that's, simply due to the power of the position, and that's due to the actual performance. For example, a middle linebacker will often lead a team in tackles, even if he isn't the best tackler. A QB who performs well on 83% of the snaps will get much more credit than an offensive lineman who performs well on 98% of the snaps. It's the nature of the position. A football win, like winning a battle, is a group accomplishnent. The general and the guy on the front lines are two different guys doing two different jobs, but the higher ranking guy will be treated better at official events, even if he sucks at his job. Not complaining, just an observation.

  12. What an amazing, humble man. Many nuggets of gold! Such wisdom! And not just for football…for life!

    This should be studied and taught at every dinner table….

  13. This interview is a treasure trove of great leadership lessons. You can tell Bill studies a lot on the topic of leadership. He echos a lot of what all of the top leadership speakers/authors preach.

  14. That last picture though. Thats a “Thanos Infinity Rings” looks like to me. Appreciate greatness because after this Dynasty over it might be take awhile or forever to beat that Patriots Dynasty especially in NFL. If they win one more ring (7th) they should change the Trophy to BB and the SB MVP to TB12 names (imo).

  15. I think you know their bill a lot about spying on teams before the Super Bowl and I also know you know about how the referees made a horrible call when Charles Woodson sacks Tom Brady in the AFC Championship to win the game and they made some stupid rule after that called the Tuck Rule save their asses from a horrible call that should have gotten the Raiders into the Super Bowl that year. The Patriots should never have gone to that Super Bowl. So there's two Super Bowls right there that they shouldn't have even one. And now I'm not a Raider fan I'm an NFL fan and I no bulshit when I see it and he's been around a lot of it. You should tell them about that their Billy boy

  16. If Belichick had been commander instead of General Persching WW1 would have been done before 1st March 1918 with plenty of more survivors.

  17. LoL my family has countless military members.. from Dad to uncle's.. it was what poor people did coming up in the old days or those that needed focus discipline and values . Also it was used as a mans right of passage ( you went into the military to become a Man ..if you made it back home ). In this video it seemed like there was a few jabs placed due to the situations presented and confronted by the silent protest kneeling for the anthem ( Very bias racist song in it's originality… Factually speaking) . So when folks make comments about military in football interviews even though bills dad was a Navy guy..( so was mine.. and my uncle etc) and then start standing up for national anthem during the interview LoL… Come on.."message" it's pointing out his stance on the issue publicly. When seemingly bill doesn't give media material to play with and create narratives to play on the public. . I had stopped 6 minutes in for the silliness.. let's not get personal..or shall I ask when is it okay to get personal? Because all of it is ! But thing is on one hand it doesn't effect many outside of their emotional respect for something and on the other hand its effect speaks to the narrative of continued mistreatment the original song lyrics details.

  18. Suzy……this was one of the finest and well prepared interviews I have ever watched, and with out a doubt the best interview with Bill Belichick ever and he was as relaxed as I have ever seen….Congrads !!!!!

  19. Colin Kaepernick ain’t allowed in that BBQ… Y’all know soon as that song places he ain’t giving no F’s about it ..

  20. Lifelong Dolphins fan here ..and I have ALLWAYS hated Brady and Belichick and Sadly after 46 years and nfl fan I stopped watching the nfl I’m sure you all can figure out why…but this year I will only be watching the Patriots…my respect for Belichick and Brady has brought me me back Sorta ..land WOW CANT BELIEVE IM SAYING THIS…GO PATRIOTS…🇺🇸🇺🇸

  21. I watched this excellent introspective interview and really wonder how anybody could give Ms Welch a negative thumbs down rating. Maybe 398 typos?

  22. So pay our soldiers millions of dollars. I hate how coach keeps making contrasts between the military and nfl players. I mean for real they’re playing football not trying to detect ied’s. He’s like trump in a lot of ways. He hijacks someone else’s experiences and uses it to his advantage. Remember this man paid a 2x murderer and gang banger $40 million. He has no real morality.

  23. Coach Belichick just understand all phases of football better than anyone else! He leaves no stones unturned. Details…

  24. you also you are the goat you and Brady can filled a barn someone says what is better than a goat be already a Hall of Fame and still play or coach other season coming other Super BOWL When you have the magic recipe to win Voila

  25. @ 4:20 when she’s talking about undervalued players, they showed Hogan! Amazing editing and post prod.

  26. They were earned! No one will be able to take them away!
    Not “Tuck rule”,
    Not “spygate”,
    Not “deflategate”,
    Not Goodell or anyone else! The only reason those “scandals” were started was to make sure Canton’s door wouldn’t open before the 5 year post retirement rule. Because if it wasn’t for those instances, Brady, Bill and Bob got in yesterday!

  27. I can't wait till Brady gets to old to hog Belichick's as a couch and Belichick finally gets to show everyone that Tom.Brady was a product of his system and that he can take any advantage QB amd and get them into the hall of fame…

    Brady is nothing without Belichick.

  28. John wooden will always be the greatest coach of all time. But belichick may be at #2. I put him ahead of Red Auerbach, adolph rupp, vince lombardi, chuck knoll, bill walsh, and i might put him ahead of phil jackson……phil jackson and belichick are a toss up at #2 all time…..for me.

  29. I take that one quote where Coach Belichick mentions "don't be afraid to use an idea, just because it's an unconventional one… Just because nobodies done it," and so that doesn't always automatically make it a bad idea.

  30. The New England Patriots and the only ship and the coach versus the coach Bill Belichick is the only guy I would give respect to no-nonsense guy don't put up with any athlete that demands and think he's better than the organization they're gone the ultimate respect for Bill Belichick I would vote for him for president cuz he wouldn't beat around the bush and get things done everybody else trying to catch up with him but the only problem everybody else are liberal Liberal way of thinking kisses football ball players asses and that's not how you win I used to be a Pittsburgh Steeler fan but the coach they got now I have no respect for I had that same respect and I was just a young boy but Vince Lombardi was much like this no-nonsense guy expect the very best out of his players and no bulshit you play honor respect and that's what bilichek is all about
