Is Bill Belichick screwing everything up for the New England Patriots?

Let me say this before I get started: Bill Belichick is the greatest coach of all time. It shouldn’t even be debatable. None of the greats — Lombardi, Shula, Walsh — had to deal with what Belichick has mastered over the last two decades. They didn’t have to work around free agency or face a league full of fully capable (for the most part) coaches. Some of the old timers may...
