Ben Maller: “It’s like the ‘Chicken vs. the Egg’ in the ‘who is more responsible for the Patriots’ last 20 years?’ debate between Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. My money is on Bill Belichick. He was able to manipulate the salary cap and find diamonds in the rough consistently, while putting a roster together that was talented enough, hungry enough, and with that desire and that thirst to win. Brady was wonderful, but look at a guy like Matt Ryan, who has a Hall of Fame resume, but Atlanta has not consistently been a postseason team… And Belichick took the Browns to the playoffs which is like an act of God in Cleveland!” (Full Audio Above)

Check out the audio above as Maller details why it’s Belichick who should receive the lion’s share of the credit, as Belichick found a way to win double-digit games literally every season in a modern salary cap league that was designed to prevent just that.
