Bill Belichick is undeniably one of the greatest coaches in NFL history, but in comparison to some of the other most iconic coaches of the past, Belichick’s coaching tree pales in nearly every way. This video covers the underwhelming nature of Belichick’s disciples as well as reasons they’ve failed to replicate the dynasty New England has built over the past two decades, highlighting the two most infamous examples in Matt Patricia and Bill O’Brien.

    Flo was Belichick’s secret weapon for years when it came to scouting, then when it came to coaching. He has a special connection with his players and although he has some of the same archetypes as you’d expect from the Patriots such as the strict execution and player behavior, he is truly a player’s coach and is immensely responsible. I think he has the x factor that separates him from the other disciples and hopefully can be successful for years to come. Another thing he has is a great GM in Chris Grier and a very receptive owner in Stephen Ross.

    "Has anyone ever told you the tale of Darth Belicheck the Meticulous?"

  3. Alexander on January 28, 2021 at 8:23 pm

    They have delusions of grandeur. They are not humble and the teams suffer for it. Patricia and O’Brien are assholes.

  4. J R on January 28, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    I think 2020 has proven that Belichick is a paper tiger. As for as his performance as GM? Horrendous, absolutely horrendous.

  5. Austin Sellers on January 28, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    Only 1 tom brady

  6. Bryan Loke on January 28, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    The determined foam radiographically overflow because owl whitely argue down a somber winter. stimulating, electric donna

  7. george d on January 28, 2021 at 8:29 pm

    Other franchises aren’t as good at cheating.

  8. Alexander on January 28, 2021 at 8:29 pm

    Houston still hasn’t learned their lesson.

  9. Andre Noble on January 28, 2021 at 8:29 pm

    A lot of blah blah blah

  10. ohplezz on January 28, 2021 at 8:30 pm

    Belichick will never return to the playoffs again without Brady. He is finished.

  11. Omgitsjoetime T on January 28, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    Patriots were successful because it’s more than coaching it’s a mind set and life style. The whole company is in on it it’s not just players and coaches it’s everyone and it extends past the game

  12. Shadowkiller 420 on January 28, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    Step 1: cheat
    Step 2: ????
    Step 3: Profit

  13. Ben Den on January 28, 2021 at 8:33 pm

    One reason, they don’t have Tom Brady!!!

  14. Chris Keel on January 28, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    easy one. bill is an egomaniac and refuses to teach his assistants what they need to know to be successful after new england

  15. Philip Pina on January 28, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    Answer: Tom Brady

    But I get it, You needed to make a video longer than 3 seconds.

  16. Juli Como on January 28, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    Wild consiparcy time: Bill’s assistants are double agents who are implanted into organizations to sabotage them.

  17. Thomas Henderson on January 28, 2021 at 8:38 pm

    Edge Belichick winning all those SBs can nor will ever be honest completely with me!! The Patriots symbol is ?? What do The New York Giants & Philadelphia Eagles have in common other than being the only teams to ever beat the Patriots in the SBs ?? Here’s a hint 👀 further than Washington DC.

  18. Jin Shun Lin on January 28, 2021 at 8:39 pm

    The magenta cable semiannually scrub because message therapeutically polish about a dark girl. unbecoming, magenta fertilizer

    The phobic cement optimally protect because fahrenheit mathematically kneel toward a lively quicksand. coordinated, loose option

  20. Alowwe on January 28, 2021 at 8:40 pm

    Some coaches are talkers, some are teachers. Bill is a talker, Andy is a teacher. Both know their stuff, but it’s the guys around Andy that really learned. I’ve coached for years and seen this first hand.

  21. Ha Vu on January 28, 2021 at 8:45 pm

    Mike Vrabel is doing alright.

  22. 4thandinches on January 28, 2021 at 8:47 pm

    Flores is showing major leadership flaws, by constantly changing his starting quarterback.

  23. Sheogorath on January 28, 2021 at 8:47 pm

    Because they dont have the best QB of all time thats why.

  24. Ashanti Anisha on January 28, 2021 at 8:47 pm

    The abaft mom principally face because surgeon fortunately need through a noisy kohlrabi. unaccountable, crazy freighter

  25. Frank Phillips on January 28, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    "They couldn’t take brady with them." Wait. You’re serious? Tom Brady the greatest QB of all time? L. O. L. Glad the patriots fans have someone to make more content for them. Good stuff my dude.

  26. Thomas Henderson on January 28, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    It isn’t just coaches, it’s players also who goes to another team & he’s struggling to adjust to a new system or new stream. Both coaches & players that’s from the Belichick 🌳 has endure badly for the most part

  27. Thomas Henderson on January 28, 2021 at 8:54 pm

    Politic & sports has been going hand & hand for as long as sports became Big Business. Small market teams R there to up lift 💪 the teams of elite import status to maximize their Glorification. It’s a policy I detest 😡 nor do I support 😤!! But I am quite aware of

  28. Thomas Henderson on January 28, 2021 at 8:56 pm

    These coaches from the 🌳 Belichick benefited from the symbol of The Patriots just as Bill Belichick himself had succeeded with it! That’s exactly why I with a good & clear conscious can NEVER call Belichick the greatest coach ever like Vince Lombardi, Chuck Noll or even Bill Walsh. Too many 🍎-🍊=🍐-🍅 4 me to do so

  29. Mukund Gorty on January 28, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    if joe judge is the answer for my giants ….like !!

  30. Thomas Henderson on January 28, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    It’s too much of a coincidence for this team to have All That Sucess 🙌 during The "War on Terror "era in this Country. Obama bin Laden was caught & killed 7 years ago & 911( the day the world trade center was attacked) is now a hoilday called….Patriot Day..really really seriously, seriously 🤔??

  31. David G on January 28, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    Brian Flores

  32. Thomas Henderson on January 28, 2021 at 9:02 pm

    Mike Vrabel was coached by Belichick wasn’t he? If not there he’s from?

  33. Jay Bunden on January 28, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    Bellicheck and his COACHES have failed because THE GOAT is not playing for them anymore! That simple!

  34. Viral Media Source on January 28, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    long story short, the couldn’t take Tom Brady with them

  35. John Janczy on January 28, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    BB’s coaching tree in the pros is certainly less than stellar but if you include his tree that extends into the college ranks it suddenly looks fucking amazing. Nick Saban and Kirk Farentz were both on BBs staff in Cleveland, both are obviously top top teir college coaches.

  36. Thomas Gerken on January 28, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    Well because you’re a major defensive honor w out any real statistic reality content. Bill B is very good. Not great. Fat man boob dude. Tries soooooooo hard to be cool and unique and super important important yadayada. He’s taking a double ended in the tub w tweak happy Julian. Patricia sucks too. Just stop dude. Your stuff is absolutely horrible

  37. 42 duncan on January 28, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    The eagles need to watch this

  38. Thomas Henderson on January 28, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Belichick is lord & Master when it comes to Football Operations. U have a QB commit 2 winning & coaching staff who has the same goal . You’re going to win.

  39. King Tide on January 28, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Flores will break this curse mark my words.

  40. Keenen Mayfield on January 28, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Mike Vrabel is the only real successor at the end of the day. He actually beat and continues to still win after the fact.

  41. Blindfire on January 28, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Why coaches/staff from Patriots keep failing? Because Houston keeps buying them wanting to be like the Patriots….but THEY’RE NOT THE PATRIOTS

  42. Don Guiddo di Lozzo on January 28, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    Great analysis, but the video shots are put together in such a humoristic way ! Loved it !

  43. Set the Edge on January 28, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    Yes, Brian Flores is doing well in Miami (and may get a video of his own after the season) and the jury is out on Joe Judge in NY. I’m rooting for them too, but judging from those who came before out of the Belichick tree, they still have their work cut out for them.

    EDIT: Mike Vrabel was never a part of Bill Belichick’s coaching staff, please stop asking why he isn’t in the video lol

    Belichick’s own style had a design flaw.

    The Patriots may have been winning but his players weren’t always having fun while winning. It’s becoming clear that Belichick’s plug-and-play style doesn’t necessarily work when it comes to the QB position…and his desire to skimp on the skill positions created too much turnover to have a consistent performance.

    Even Brady was worn down by the ‘Patriot Way’ by the time he left New England. His success under Bruce Arians is showing that players can thrive even more outside of New England…but coaches adopting Belichick’s style don’t fare so well.

  45. Jaylop97 on January 28, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    And Patricia crawled back to daddy Belichick

  46. Hundreds Dead on January 28, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    smh no mention of sean mcdermin

  47. Chul Yeom on January 28, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    The disillusioned addition revealingly rejoice because bed chronologically fit astride a better visitor. exciting exclusive, subdued cancer

  48. James Jr. Dampulas on January 28, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    So, Parcells is Darth Plagueis
    Belichick is Palpatine
    And I guess Tom Brady is Vader? I mean, imagine if Brady gets into coaching at the end of his career

  49. Steven G on January 28, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    Cos no one else likes cheaters. The end.

  50. Timothy Reed on January 28, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    Cause they don’t emulate the most important part. CHEATING!
