Bill-Belichick

Bill Belichick slams Patriots rookie in an attempt to reward him for his milestone win

Bill Belichick, New England Patriots coach, won’t want anything to do about a historic achievement.

Belichick was close to tying George Halas for the second-most wins in NFL coaching history as the clock ticked down to the Patriot’s win over the Cleveland Browns. Brenden Schooler came to hand the game ball to Belichick, but he refused to have anything to do with it.

Belichick gave Schooler an intense stare before an assistant coach intervened and took the ball from him.

After the game, Belichick addressed his achievement and, as you would expect, he gave all the credit to the players he has coached.

“You can’t win this league games without great players, so I’ve been extremely fortunate.”

Belichick scored his 324th career victory with his third-string quarterback Bailey Zappe, who ran hard and exceeded expectations for his 309-yard total on 24-for-34 passing with two touchdown passes.

While Zappe was able to find Hunter Henry and Tyquan Thompson, he also allowed his run game some time to improve. Rhamondre Stephenson ran for 76 yards with two touchdowns on 19 runs, while Thornton also found the end zone on the ground in the 38-15 blowout.

Belichick may have felt a little more fulfilled to tie the record, as he was fired from the Browns after five seasons as their head coach. Belichick only won one season in that period, going 11-5 in 1994. However, he was fired by the Browns and moved to the Patriots where he would win six Super Bowls.

It could also be fate that Halas’ team, the Chicago Bears are next on Belichick’s Patriots schedule.

Gillette Stadium will host what could be Belichick’s 325th victory, making him the only owner of the second-most wins as an NFL head coach.
