    Because he is a defensive genius and tremendous disciplinarian. You can't teach genius and most guys will not have the iron will to maintain that discipline.

    I remember in the playoffs one yr Dion Lewis was dominant in a game but fumbled once as well. The next week in practice Belichick made him walk around carrying a football all week and had guys randomly try to knock the ball out of his hands.

    This is probably in reference to Brady being a system QB and it is Bills system that won all the time.All I got to say is he didn't win as HC with the Browns.He and Brady seemed to need each other to win.Yes all the others around them as wellThe orgization as a whole was run very well.I'm just going to say this the system was put inaround Bradys strengths and weakness in mind.

    Because the assistant coaches aren't Belichick and haven't been able to put together a staff as good as his.

    Name a former assistant who became a successful NFL head coach. Not even Nick Saban did well in the NFL, Pat Hill was great with Fresno State though.

    Belichick’s coaching tree is mediocre at best.

    Team games are not won by a single player.

    Without the other guys, no one can do the job.
