Oh I agree, I'm tired of hearing Tom Brady is the G.O.A.T. (Greatest of all time) because it's not Brady, it's Belichick... I don't care that he's not a player, he's still the best.
Also I've read Belichick's record without Brady is the same with Brady minus the Super Bowl success. Brady is nothing more than the best game manager in the history of the NFL... makes limited mistakes.
Though Belichick has lucked out in that he's faced younger QBs other than Rivers (who's like Favre and is over aggressive and can be baited).
Though it still upsets me that the better teams in both Conference Championship Games lost... but it is what it is.
