Bill Belichick’s time is “OVER,” claims former Philadelphia Eagles and Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy, while insisting the New England Patriots coach “wins NO games without Tom Brady.”
- LeSean McCoy emphatically claimed that Bill Belichick’s era of dominance was over
- Insisted the Patriots only won so many games because of Tom Brady
- Said that even though New England made the playoffs last year, they look “ordinary.”
Former All-Pro running back LeSean McCoy has put himself at the top of the list of people writing off Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots.
McCoy appeared with Fox Sports when he absolutely blasted the Patriots coach.
“It’s over for Belichick. It’s over, McCoy said. “It’s easy to say how big he is, he’s the greatest of all time. He swears at his best defenders right, but you can do that because you have Tom Brady. That’s over with.

“I’ve never seen the Patriots pay so many guys on defense at one time, they’re doing it now that Tom’s gone. It’s over with this is the real Belichick.
McCoy emphasized his statements as the other members of the show looked on, almost amazed at how energetic he became as he argued.
– The winning percentage when he plays with Brady is 77 percent. Without Tom Brady, you wouldn’t even guess, 47 percent. He doesn’t win games without Tom Brady, McCoy added.

“They look so ordinary! Seriously, when I watch the tape and really see them, they get beat up front in the run game, defenders miss tackles, they look bad. On violations, they cannot do anything on violations.
“Every coach in the AFC for all these, they’re saying the same thing I’m saying right now. Without Tom Brady, Belichick is a good coach. Stop all this, he’s the greatest of all time, because he’s not!’
After concluding this part of his case against Belichick, McCoy would walk over to the studio video screen to continue his case. The argument then shifted to Belichick’s record without Brady which is just 35-36.

Attention then turned to the long line of assistants who have become head coaches, having coached under Belichick. The results were less than flattering.
All but two of the 10 coaches listed had a winning record in the NFL, and all had been fired from at least one head coaching job.
In Belichick’s defense, however, he did lead a Patriots team with a rookie quarterback to the playoffs with an 11-5 record last season.
