In the Starting Line-Up
I agree. It matters to Bill for sure especially with Brady winning last year. I think if he can win a SB without Brady that will greatly enhance his coaching legacy. How could it not. It did wonders for Brady.I don't know. I think it matters. I like to think Belichick is on par with a guy like Phil Jackson who won titles in Chicago and LA with a variation on the same offense, a similar culture and lots of great players. He doesn't have to win a SB, but another appearance or two in the AFCC with Mac Jones would do the trick. This team can get there if they keep their current play up.
Parcells did it with SB appearances with the Giants and the Patriots. It would be great for BB to take a non-Brady team to the big game.
