Bill Belichick Sent Bold Message By Rex Ryan Amid Patriots’ Struggles

The New England Patriots can’t get back on their feet after the slow start of the 2023 NFL season. They have won just a couple of games in the regular season and NFL analysts aren’t really kind to head coach Bill Belichick. Rex Ryan fired the most recent shot at Belichick and he may have crossed the red line with this one.

“Can I just say this: Bill Belichick, please stop. Just name your dang starter. It doesn’t matter, they both stink,” Ryan said on ESPN’s “Get Up” edition. “Whether it’s Zappe or Peashooter Jones, we don’t care. They stink. Just go ahead and save the drama. Like we care about your team. Your team stinks.”

Ryan mentions Tom Brady, criticizes Belichick

The former Buffalo Bills and New York Jets didn’t stop here. Ryan brought the Brady topic to the table. He reminded the world that Brady won a ring in his first season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers all while mentioning that the Patriots are approaching the end of their third losing season.

Tom Brady was the only reason you won anyway, alright? I’m just telling you the difference,” Ryan said. “I said from the jump, they would never win again. I said they would never win again when that guy trotted down to Tamp, when it came out, because I know how draining that is to those kids. And, that, that is what you’re facing right now.

“You pick all the players, you do all this. Bill Belichick, greatest in history, I will never dispute that, OK? I had my a** kicked by him a million times. But if you think for a minute that it wasn’t about Tom Brady, you’re absolutely crazy.”

Belichick defeated Ryan almost every time their teams met and the former head coach has every right to be frustrated. However, he shouldn’t have said those words because it doesn’t make any sense. Brady himself said Belichick was the best head coach to ever coach a NFL game in history.
