Stephon Gilmore Rips Apple TV’s Patriots Documentary For It’s Portrayal Of Bill Belichick

Apple TV’s “The Dynasty” docuseries which chronicles the New England Patriots astonishing 20 year run hasn’t sat well with several key members of that historic run.

The common criticism of the 10-part series is its negative portrayal of longtime head coach Bill Belichick. Many topics of the documentary including the relationship with quarterback Tom Brady, his friendship with former president Donald Trump, the bizarre benching of Malcolm Butler in Super Bowl LII have painted Belichick as the bad guy.

Many ex-Patriots including Julian Edelman, Matthew Slater, Devin McCourty, and Rodney Harrison ripped “The Dynasty” for focusing on the negatives. On Friday, Stephon Gilmore joined the list of players who believe Belichick was portrayed unfairly.

After completing the series, the former Patriots cornerback took to social media with high praise for his former head coach. You can read his posts below:


The final episode of the docuseries – Ep. 10 – spotlighted Belichick’s masterpiece coaching performance against the Los Angeles Rams in LIII. As Gilmore mentions in his tweets, Belichick switched his defense from man to zone and was about to limit the high-powered Rams offense to just three points.

Gilmore played a key role with a timely interception in the 13-3 victory, which marked the sixth and final Super Bowl title of the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick era.

Gilmore enjoyed the most productive stretch of his 12-year career with Belichick as his head coach. In addition to becoming a Super Bowl champ, the 33-year-old was named the 2019 Defensive Player of the Year and earned both of his All-Pro nods in New England.

“The Dynasty” didn’t paint Belichick in the best light, but he’ll have a chance to tell his side of the story. According to a recent report, he’s currently writing a book while spending time away from the sideline.
