I would have to say that New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is in the argument for being one of the top-5 coaches of all time.
Isn't part of the coach's job to control players if they are locker-room problems? It's not like Moss was getting in trouble off the field. If the reports of a halftime blowup with quarterbacks coach Bill O'Brien are true, shouldn't Belichick be the one to handle the problem?
Instead, he got rid of it.
That's foolishness. If coaches make $5 million a year, the reason is to not just deal with the Xs and Os. It's about dealing with Jimmy and Joes. It takes massaging problems at times.
Belichick is supposed to be the master of discipline. So why did he fail here?
It's an interesting question.
He traded away his only real deep threat because he couldn't handle him. This might go down as an even dumber move for Belichick than fourth-and-jackass from last season's Colts game. It might be a major demerit in his rankings of coaching greatness and it's definitely something his team will feel on the field.
