Behind every man’s genius there are flaws, although sometimes they are difficult to identify.
Bill Belichick has been a meticulous mastermind in his approach to scouting and signing players.
This dominance is evident based upon his results.
In his 11 years in New England, he boasts a record of 126-50 for a winning percentage of .716, along with three Super Bowls in four years.
In the playoffs, he has elevated his performance once again, flaunting a winning percentage of .737.
Throw in four conference championships and 10 division titles, and any criticisms are statistically unwarranted of the future Hall-of-Famer.
Simply put, when a player hasn’t worked out in Foxboro, it is hard to put the blame on anyone not wearing the shoulder pads themselves.
Call these signings what you may, but for one reason or another, they have been rare blunders of the Belichick Era.
