Is Bill Belichick coming to the end of his tenure in New England?

Former Indianapolis Colts kicker-turned-talk show host Pat McAfee had an interesting topic of discussion in the latest installment of his YouTube show.

He said, “What’s going on in New England? Does this worry you that potentially everything in New England is completely broken going forward? They have no evaluation process… Their draft choice is not that great for a long time, their salary cap is over.

“In this particular business, you have to wonder. Bill Belichick, greatest coach of all time, greatest GM of all time as well…has he just completely lost it? Is he broken? Is there a problem in New England?” McAfee questioned on his The Pat McAfee Show.
