The thought of the New England Patriots firing Bill Belchick is something many have discussed but firing Bill Belichick in the middle of the season would be one of the most shocking things in NFL history.
But that’s exactly what could happen according to the Boston Globe’s Ben Volin if the Patriots lose to the Indianapolis Colts in Germany.
Via Boston Globe:
“Based on my conversations, I don’t think it’s 100% that Belichick finishes out this season,” “These next two games before the bye are huge, particularly the Germany game, which is practically the team’s Super Bowl for the Krafts. If Belichick loses at home to the Commanders and then to the Colts, and comes home from Germany with a 2-8 record, I think there’s a chance the Krafts could make the move in the bye week and install Jerod Mayo as the interim coach for the final seven games.”
The Patriots sit at 2-7 and in last place in the AFC East following a 20-17 loss to the Washington Commanders. They are 1.5-point underdogs against the 4-5 Colts Sunday. A video also went viral this week of Kraft talking to his son – Jonathan – in which the team president says “We’re just not good enough.”
It sure sounds like major changes are coming to New England as this disaster season continues. A loss to the Indianapolis Colts could begin those changes.
