Love or hate Bill Belichick you can’t argue with success. His team wins every year. His biggest challenge will come on the day Tom Brady retires. Week 4 of the 2014 NFL season New England patriots got beaten bad by the Kansas City Chiefs a great team. They lost 41-14 they had a tough road game against Cincinnati Bengals. Everyone was predicting the beginning of the end for New England patriots.
I have followed Coach Bill Belichick. I have seen the documentary a day in the life by NFL network. Watching the press conference it was the most genius thing a coach could have said. Bill Belichick was being asked questions about Tom Brady age and does he have the talent he needs around him. People made fun of that press conference.
Here is my take on it. There was no reason to hit the panic button and send your team into panic mode. A great leader doesn’t do that. He kept it simple by sending a message to his team that hey we are not going to do anything extra special for the Sunday night game at Cincinnati ignore the noise and the hype about the team being done let’s just focus on one game “we’re on to Cincinnati”. He didn’t have his team looking at the past or looking at the future. He had his team focus on the next game. Focusing on the next game is what he has his team do every week.
