Colin Cowherd slams Bill Belichick and Patriots

When Tom Brady left New England after the 2019 season, many people wondered what the Patriots would do going forward. They signed Cam Newton as Brady’s replacement and some key offseason free agents like Hunter Henry, Jonnu Smith, Kendrick Bourne, Nelson Agholor and Matthew Judon.

Colin Cowherd spoke about the steps head coach Bill Belichick has made since Brady left New England.

cowherd said:

“Now I feel like they (the Patriots) are falling in love with their culture. And I don’t understand what they’re doing. Their draft was weird… The Patriots are somewhere in the middle like I don’t get it, but somehow I get it and I don’t want to be a part of it, which means they don’t have an offensive coordinator.

Cowherd added that the Patriots probably have the weakest wide receiving corps next to the Green Bay Packers:

“They probably have the weakest wide receiving corps in the league next to Green Bay as the league rotates and transitions to a more weapons-based league because of rules, which you can do defensively.”

Cowherd went on to say that he understands the Patriots are doubling down on their culture:

“As if I understand what they’re doing, duplicating their culture. But if your quarterback Mac Jones doesn’t have the athletic ability, there’s no denying it to play by the script. And you also have one of the weakest playmakers off the script. How are you when you become a 1979 NFL team you have to score with long balls by controlling drives.

Cowherd added what he doesn’t understand is that New England doesn’t re-sign JC Jackson and doesn’t have an offensive coordinator:

“Kansas City can do that and so can Buffalo and the Chargers and the Rams and the Packers. But they can also score fast. New England has very little chance of going over the top [and] play with your feet. A super-fast wide receiver hits the cover. They can score in a way, they won’t win shootouts on a regular basis… Whatever it was, so I don’t get it. I will not re-sign JC Jackson, I will not have an offensive coordinator. It’s the OTAs, he’s young.”

Cowherd concluded by telling the Patriots that they were no longer viable and that they needed to have stars on their team:

“You are no longer viable. You have to have stars, have to have easy buckets, have to have easy touchdowns.”

The Chargers are expected to sign CB JC Jackson to a five-year, $82.5 million deal. (above @criminal record)

The Patriots didn’t win the AFC East in the first year Tom Brady left

The New England Patriots were division champions from 2009 to 2019. After Brady’s departure from the team, the Buffalo Bills won the division in 2020, breaking the Patriots’ 11-year streak.

It’s been a long time coming… Your Buffalo Bills are AFC East Champions.

The Patriots then replaced Newton with rookie quarterback Mac Jones and made the playoffs but still didn’t win the division as the Bills won their second straight title.

The Bills look strong and well equipped, but the AFC East will be tight this season.
