No doubt I think he's a great coach, but you're getting a bit ahead of yourself.
Bill Walsh - 92 W 59 L for ~61% winning percentage with 10-4 playoff record and 3 for 3 in Superbowls.
Joe Gibbs - 130 W 70 L for ~65% winning percentage with 16-5 playoff record and 3 rings.
Vince Lombardi - 94 W 36 L for ~74% winning percentage with 10-2 playoff record and 6 championships in 10 seasons.
Don Shula - 328 W 156 L for ~67% winning percentage with 19-17 playoff record and 2 rings.
And now Belichik:
89 W and 71 L for ~56% winning percentage with 7-1 playoff record and 2 rings.
Now you're going to in spite of those statistics convince me that a coach whose really only been considered good for about 4 years, who doesn't even have a 60% winning record is better than not one, but two of the above mentioned coaches?
Seriously, I have nothing against the Pats, I think they're a great team and that Belichik will most likely make it to the hall and be forever known as one of the coaching greats, but give some respect to the guys who've done it longer and better before annointing him the second coming of Lombardi.
