Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots fell to 2-9 on the season after Sunday’s 10-7 loss to the New England Patriots. The Patriots benched Mac Jones once again during the game.
On ESPN’s ‘Get Up’ this morning, one of Belichick’s former rival, Rex Ryan, ripped the six-time Super bowl champion. Ryan shredded Belichick for hiding who would be the starting quarterback for the game before saying that Tom Brady was the primary reason for the Patriots dynasty.
“Tom Brady was the only reason you won anyway. I’m just telling you the difference,” Ryan said. “I said from jump they would never win again when that guy trotted down to Tampa. Because I know how draining the Patriot Way is to those kids.”
“Bill Belichick, greatest in the history. I will never dispute that. Had my ass kicked by him a million times. But if you think for a minute that it wasn’t about Tom Brady, you’re absolutely crazy.”
The Patriots currently rank 26th and 16th in offense and defense, respectively, and are likely headed for a top-three selection in the 2024 NFL Draft.
