have more chances of entering the NFL. It’s funny how some players test others’
boundaries. This NFL prospect has a nickname for the Patriots head coach, and
we don’t really know if Belichick would love it.
The Patriots hosted South Carolina WR Deebo Samuel for a visit. Samuel documented the visit on his Instagram, and it was all good until he decided to address Belichick.
“Hey Billy,” he said, “I’ll see you in a month, my man.”
Will Belichick love his
new nickname? We don’t think so. We don’t really know if the Patriots head
coach had ever been called this way. Maybe his parents called him ‘Billy.’
Most prospects call the
head coach ‘Mr. Belichick,’ ‘Coach’ or any other name. Even ‘Lord of the Rings’
makes more sense than ‘Billy.’
Belichick isn’t the type of person who jokes around. He doesn’t really talk much and humor is the last thing that pops in his mind. Belichick is into winning Super Bowls, and he is really great in that. Ask Nick Saban. He knows how Belichick works.
“Sometimes, players are kind of depending on that kind of reinforcement all the time in practice, but in a game, there’s no coach out there,” Saban told reporters Thursday. “I used to coach like that when I was an assistant with the Cleveland Browns, and we’d have a scrimmage and Belichick would chew my butt out, man. He’d say ‘Let the players play.’ And I was like, wow, I’ve never had my butt chewed out before for coaching, teaching, but I have to say the same things sometimes to our coaches now.
“There’s a time where you’ve just gotta let the players play
because in the game they’ve gotta know what to do, they’ve gotta know how to do
it, and can’t depend on someone else to make the call for them. They can’t
depend on somebody else to recognize things for them.”
We are waiting
for Belichick’s response. It would be hilarious. Maybe he won’t even say a
word. That’s his way of handling things and rumors. Let’s just wait and see.
