“Couldn’t Have Asked for Anything More” – Bill Belichick Reveals ‘Defining Moment’ of NFL Career

The Bill Belichick-led organization made its way to a 27-30 win at the MetLife Stadium on Monday night. And it was Cam Newton who rescued the struggling New England Patriots outfit in their Week 9 clash against the New York Jets.

The former Carolina Panthers man led the Patriots to a 4th-quarter comeback against the Jets to avoid a 5th consecutive loss in their ongoing NFL campaign.

The 2020 NFL season has been full of ups and downs for the 6-time Super Bowl-winning coach. The departure of the legendary Tom Brady in January made things complicated for coach Belichick and the Patriots.

Despite all the uncertainty surrounding his short-term future in New England, Belichick maintains that coming to Boston was probably the most important moment of his NFL coaching career.

Bill Belichick opens up on New York Jets spell before New England appointment

Before arriving in Boston, Bill Belichick served as the Assistant Head Coach and the defensive backs coach for the New York Jets between 1997-1999.

New England Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft appointed Bill Belichick as the team’s Head Coach in 2000 and the rest, as they say, is history.

“That wasn’t a good situation for me and I didn’t want to be part of it, so I wasn’t. The other half of that was Robert giving me the opportunity to come here and trading, he gave up quite a bit to get me to come here, and that was a big trade.

“I am very thankful that it worked out and I appreciate all the support from Robert, the Kraft family, the Patriots organization and all the New England fans and I’ll keep trying to do my best for this team and this organization — give them the very best that can and I very thankful for the opportunity to come here.

“I just wasn’t going to stay there in that situation,” Belichick told WEEI earlier this week.
