Bill Belikik always has a plan.
After domestic leader Dont’a Hightower, right shell Marcus Cannon, security Patrick Cheng, bumper Brandon Bolden, backup Danny Vitale and liner Naji Thoran all gave up the NFL 2020 season amid problems with the coronavirus, things started to look like gloomy for the season “Patriots”. But the league’s leader, who spoke to Adam Sheffer on ESPN on Tuesday, remains confident that Belichik will find a way to rectify the situation in favor of his team.
“Bill somehow makes sense of it all,” the source told Shefter via text message.
The growing list of NFL players has dropped out of the season ̵1; coincidentally, when MLB is dealing with an outbreak of Marlins coronavirus – although this trend has had a disproportionate impact on the Patriots. According to CNN, New England rejections make up about a third of all players who have dropped out of the league.
“I do not know [what the reason is]!! That’s why he is who he is! »Added source.
Without giving any details, one possible interpretation (which many on social media have concluded) is that Belichik sees his team’s stellar decline as an organic way to find a successor to six-time Super Cup champion Tom Brady, who left through a free agency in March. , without intentional tanks.
The logical goal – not only for the Patriots – was Clemson trackback Trevor Lawrence. But when Heisman’s frontman is expected to be in high demand, with №1 in the NFL’s 2021 draft as the favorite, the team will have to end the season with a flawless record in the AFC’s soft east to even have a chance to make it.
Deliberate loss is usually an anathema to a strict head coach, and the “Tank for Trevor” theory was quickly cut off by both current and former players.
“By no means were Belikik’s tanks this year,” Darius Butler, a former patriot apostate, wrote on Twitter on Wednesday. “The one who says he’s never been around a guy!”
Chung listened to Butler and quoted a tweet, “Whoever said that is dumb.”
Belichik-Ian or not, the reality is that the calculation has significantly shifted this offseason. The crashed coach, and in fact the general manager, must restore the dynasty he and Brady built in a 20-year run together, and rooms consisting of Cam Newton, Jarrett Stiddham and Brian Hoyer.
The team was unable to pursue a high-quality reserve during the free agency due to salary constraints, and eventually signed Newton, the 2015 NFL MVP and former general picker №1 in June, to the veterans’ minimum agreement in June.
If she is healthy, the double threat of 31 years can bring a lot of crime to the Patriots, but Lawrence offers a more attractive long-term solution.
The 20-year-old Lawrence led the Tigers to the 2019 national championship as a freshman and has earned a host of awards to date, including USA Today’s High School Player of the Year, 2018 ACC Rookie of the Year, 2018 Cotton Bowl MVP, 2018 National Championship CFP MVP, 2019 First Team All-ACC and 2019 Fiesta Bowl MVP.
