I have a question.
What the heck has Belichick ever done as a coach? What makes him so "great"?
Brady was a 6th round afterthought. He had nothing to do with it. His record before that was POOR. What the HELL has this man done to deserve a "genius" label?
I can name a DOZEN things off the top of my head that Walsh did to earn a "genius" title. I can't name ONE -- SINGLE -- THING that Belichick has done.
Which offensive player(s) did Belichick scout? Anybody?
Which quarterbacks did Belichick ever mentor? Anyone?
Which defensive players did he STEAL in the draft? Who???
WHAT has he actually DONE???
NO!!! Coaches do not win Super Bowls. Coaches do one or more of the following: Scout players, draft players, organize, develop coaches, develop players, gameplan, create strategies, create schemes, create plays.
Walsh did ALL OF THOSE THINGS at a GENIUS level of ability. How many of those things has Belickick ever done at a genius level of ability???
Belichick is a slightly above average coach who rides one of the best quarterbacks to ever play (who developed HIMSELF) into the record books. He is nothing special at all. Walsh can barely be compared to ANYONE. Comparing him to Belichick is laughable.
