LeSean McCoy unleashes verbal tirade on Bill Belichick, shoots down GOAT talk

·2 min read

Former NFL running back LeSean McCoy didn’t pull any punches when given an opportunity to lay into coach Bill Belichick and the struggling New England Patriots.

Many in the football community believe quarterback Tom Brady won the debate of who deserved the most credit for the Patriots’ dynasty that spanned nearly two decades. Brady left the team in 2020 to join one of the league’s losingest franchises, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and won a Super Bowl in his first year there.

It was a mic drop victory for those that ever doubted his ability to play outside of New England’s system.

Meanwhile, the Patriots haven’t won a playoff game since his exit, and they currently look like the third-place team in the AFC East behind the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins.

“It’s over for Belichick. It’s over,” McCoy said, during an appearance on FOX Sports’ SPEAK. “…I’ve never seen the Patriots pay so many guys on defense at one time. They’re doing it now that Tom is gone. It’s over. This is the real Belichick. The winning percentage, playing with Brady, is 77 percent. Without Tom Brady, you wouldn’t even guess. 47 percent. He don’t win no games without Tom Brady.

“Since Tom Brady has left, they look so regular. Seriously though, when I watch the tape and I really watch them, they’re getting beat up front in the running game, defenders missing tackles—they look bad. They can’t do nothing on offense. Every coach in the AFC, for all of these years when they had Tom Brady, they’re saying the same thing I’m saying right now. Without Tom Brady, Belichick is a good coach. Stop with all of this he’s the greatest of all time. He’s not.”

The scathing criticisms aren’t likely to end for Belichick anytime soon if the Patriots continue to lose football games.

It won’t help matters that a 45-year-old Brady is contending for his eighth Super Bowl coming off a year where he was nominated by his peers as the No. 1-ranked player in the NFL.
