Is there any doubt whatsoever that Garapolo is the 2nd best QB in the AFC East? If you said Fitzgerald or Tannenhil I wouldn't call you crazy. I'd just call you wrong.
Or that Belichick is an even better coach than he was getting credit for? Doing this without Brady certainly helps cement his coaching legacy.
Belichick is amazing. The Patriots talent, without Brady, Gronk, Hightower, etc, that they had out there yesterday was subpar compared to other NFL teams, yet they were completely dismantling Miami in the first half. I mean look at the Pats skill players ... Edelman, Amendola, Hogan and Blount. Most of those guys were released by other teams. They are average NFL players at best, and Belichick makes them look like All-Pros. The man is amazing.
There was a quote that Bum Phillips said about Don Shula back in the day ... "He can take his'n and beat your'n, and he could then take your'n and best his'n". This quote totally applies to Belichick. I have no doubt whatsoever that Miami would've crushed the Pats yesterday if Belickick were coaching Miami and Gase coaching NE.
Again, that coach is Amazing.
