    Side note: Logan Ryan and Duron Harmon were teammates with Steve at Rutgers. They praised his work ethic there, too.

    I'd say the relevant question is will he get the Defensive Coordinator's title?

    In fact, IIRC Tony Romo caught Steve Belihick calling the defensive play calls for the whole D early in the year last year, in the Giants game I believe. Bill's done that before, give a man the responsibility without the title, most recently with Brian Flores and now I honestly believe Steve Belichick is running our defense, and maybe has been doing so for awhile now.

    Bill's definitely been letting his son stretch his wings while sheltering him from media scrutiny. Now that the proverbial cat is out of the bag we might see a more official changeover in the next 18 months or so. But I honestly believe that Bill is determined, when he retires, whenever that might be, to hand the keys of the franchise over to his fully qualified son.

    (I've often speculated as well that Bill might turn the locker room over to Steve and kick himself upstairs to play GM. That's a thing that could happen if Bill thinks Steve is ready)

    I would much rather Steve be the coach of this team after Bill than Josh.

    Even without AB (and a ton of injuries and no TE's) they were a fairly officiated KC game away from a bye.

    At worst, Steve Belichick didn't get in the way of the best secondary in the league.
    At best, he was responsible for it.
    That what we're trying to say?

    How dare you. I specifically said that he didn't dedicate the most cap space to the secondary just to make Steve look good. How dare you!

    How was I bashing BB. I was just praising Steve and pointing that just because the Pats were #3 in NFL for total cap space dedicated to secondary shouldn't take away from Steve's accomplishments.

    And also pointing out that just because Pats were #32 in cap space to TE, after running a TE heavy offense all decade, shouldn't absolve Brady of the blame.

    I was also defending BB, that he would never ever dedicate more cap space to his son's unit just to make him look good. No parent would do such a thing. I was just presenting some facts...................

    Like they were tired of the offense that Bill built being unable to sustain a drive over 20 yards.

    The Miami one? Like ****. The Tennessee one? Not that bad, honestly. Only gave up 14 points to the offense, almost entirely because of bad front 7 play.

    BB took a little getting used to but I love them both.

    The B&B show has been the greatest run in the history of the NYFL and nobody else is even close.

    Unapologetic BB fan here. You are correct, though, BB-Brady has been the ultimate combo. I’m surprised two Alphas were able to stick together 20 years.
