Let's see how Belichicks other protege's develop. Matt Cassel, hmm... not exactly playing like Joe Montana did when he left his team and went to the Chiefs.
How about Andrew Luck? Not doing too bad. I wonder who developed him?
Josh Johnson holds the NCAA Division I record for highest career passer efficiency at 176.68.
Hmm... I wonder who Belichick has "developed" at quarterback in his entire career besides Tom Brady? The same Tom Brady who Belichick obviously knew would be a great one, since he selected him all the way up in the 6th round. Nope. Can't actually think of any. Perhaps in time Belichick will win the lottery again, just to prove that he can do it twice.
You'd have a great point if Belechik was highly regarded as a qb guru. Not every single coach in the league is going to be hands on in regards to developing quarterbacks. Belechick is a defensive guy, right?
New England is an offensive football team right now, but that's the cap game for ya. If you're going to pay your qb franchise qb type money he better be geting those numbers as well. It should tell you everything that a guy like Matt Cassel can walk and run that offense at a pretty high level. It happened in Indy and they won 2 games. They're very good at assembling talent and that's a credit to Belechik.
