It’s been a topsy-turvy season for Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots. After a strong start to their 2020 NFL campaign, the 6-time Super Bowl winners were stuck in a 4-game losing streak before beating the New York Jets by a 30-27 scoreline on Sunday.
2015 NFL MVP awardee Cam Newton has shown flashes of brilliance over the last 9 weeks but is yet to stake his claim on Tom Brady’s throne in New England.
Amidst all the chaos surrounding the COVID-19 crisis, will the Patriots undergo a major transition in the summer of 2021?
Popular American sportscaster Colin Cowherd uploaded a short video on his official Instagram handle earlier today with an interesting plot. The outspoken show host put forth the theory of potential Bill Belichick exit from New England after the recent turn of events in Boston.
With Cam Newton’s inconsistency and the Patriots’ faltering roster, Belichick could seek greener pastures to see out his NFL career as a Head Coach.
Colin said, “They’re not running this Cam thing back. Garoppolo’s the answer? The guy can’t stay healthy. Matt Ryan’s the answer? He’s expensive and past his prime. Tom Brady left New England, why couldn’t Bill Belichick?”
A possible destination for Belichick could be Los Angeles, as per Mr. Cowherd. The current NBA (Los Angeles Lakers) and MLB World Series (Los Angeles Dodgers) Champions are currently located. Maybe Belichick could be the perfect mentor to a budding rookie quarterback, Justin Herbert.
“Chargers? Looking for a coach maybe. Have the star young quarterback, have the roster, have a star pass rusher….the Chargers need to make a bold move.
“You gotta sell tickets, right now they’re not. Belichick and Justin Herbert, five years. Spanos family, time to spend some money. Brady left, why can’t Bill?” Cowherd concluded.
The Chargers are currently sitting at the bottom of the AFC West Division table. They are currently on a 2-6 record. Justin Herbert has thrown for 2,100+ yards with 17 TDs in 7 starts this season.
With someone like Belichick calling the shots in LA, the Chargers could really turn into Super Bowl challengers, sooner rather than later.
