PFF ranks Bill Belichick as the 6th-best coach in the NFL
New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick had one of the worst seasons of his career in 2020 with a 7-9 record. His team missed the playoffs for the first time since 2008. And yet he landed at number 6 on the Pro Football Focus coaching list.
It seems that PFF took Belichick's track record into account when ranking the Patriots manager as New England's performance - both offensive and defensive - was not particularly impressive in 2020.
Here's what Eric Eager of PFF wrote about Belichick:
“I admit there is a legacy built in here as Belichick has lagged behind fourth downs in making the right decisions for the past decade, with the 2020 Patriots only advancing 39% of allowable situations. That was in 24th place in football, and the team gave 0.5 expected points.
“Last year's team only had the 21st most wins over replacements in the NFL, but still managed to win seven games in a league where the Bills and Dolphins had double-digit wins. It remains to be seen whether they can win with Cam Newton or Mac Jones. But if anyone can, then it's probably Belichick. "
New England appears to be still in the middle of rebuilding after watching quarterback Tom Brady exit. He left behind a chaotic salary cap situation (mainly caused by Belichick). Belichick spent a lot of money in the free agency upgrading the roster, and the Patriots drafted Mac Jones quarterback to rival Cam Newton in the first round.
But Belichick has to bring this new roster together in a cohesive way if New England is to get back on its winning ways.
