And no coach wins six Tremendous Bowls (and makes it to 9) until he’s bought some expertise on the roster. So “Invoice the GM” has in all probability been a complete lot higher than he will get credit score for in numerous sports activities speak arenas.
Nonetheless, no one’s excellent, and Belichick is not any exception to that rule. The workforce’s launch of large receiver Mohamed Sanu this week is simply the most recent proof of that.
The Patriots went out and bought Sanu midseason final 12 months, forking over a second-round choose to spice up the offense of a workforce that was 7-Zero on the time of the acquisition.
Sanu bought harm in his third recreation with the Patriots, who went 5-5 after making that commerce.
With Sanu now gone, the Patriots don’t have anything to indicate for that 2020 second-round choose.
The Sanu commerce clearly goes down within the loss column, and Belichick was requested about it on Friday morning.
“Yeah it’s simply a kind of issues. It simply didn’t work out,” Belichick stated. “I’ve quite a lot of respect for Mo however in the end simply issues didn’t work out. I believe he tried very arduous, I believe we tried arduous. I don’t suppose it was anyone’s fault or something like that. It was simply a kind of conditions that didn’t work out in addition to everybody hoped it might have when the transaction was made.”
