Bill Belichick lost a vast amount of institutional knowledge within the New England Patriots organization over recent years.

Front office members and coaches like Nick Caserio and Josh McDaniels that have been with the Patriots for nearly two decades are gone. Along with the great coaches and front office members that have taken opportunities elsewhere, the Patriots also lost Tom Brady — their greatest recruiting tool, and obviously the greatest quarterback to ever play.

Belichick, 70, is left to pick up the pieces and put together a team that lives up to the standards that have been set. It’s an extremely high bar, but Belichick is reportedly putting in extra work to make sure the Patriots are in shape for 2022.

“I had someone there tell me that this offseason (Bill Belichick)’s actually working more than he has in the recent past, which only speaks to the fact that … there really isn’t any place he’d rather be,” Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer wrote in his Monday morning column.

Belichick has the draft to prepare for and a second-year quarterback to mentor without the help of McDaniels, or three offensive coaches that left this offseason.

There’s a huge amount of responsibility on Belichick’s plate, but he’s proven time and time again that he can handle it.
