Who should get credit for New England's success: Tom Brady or Bill Belichick?
Other quarterbacks may have performed well under Belichick, but he never won a championship without Brady under center. Tom Brady is the real man behind the success of the Patriots because he does it on the field. Every coach has a winning formula, but nothing happens without an all-time great quarterback putting it all together.
Belichick isn't the one sacrificing his body, making the throws or taking the hits. That's all Brady. He is the reason the Patriots have been on one of the greatest tears in NFL history.
Tom Brady is a great quarterback, but he is nothing without Belichick calling the shots. If Brady played anywhere else, he would not be getting the numbers or championships.
Belichick built the team around Brady to highlight his strengths and cover his flaws. He made schemes on offense that make Brady look good. He also oversees the entire Patriots operation, keeping the team running on all cylinders while dealing with grown men egos. The Patriots would be nowhere without Belichick.
