Colin Cowherd: "Between New England being bad and Tom Brady now the best player in football, this is the biggest landslide in the history of divorces… She upgraded to a superstar, and he lives with his parents… I suggested last summer that Bill Belichick was going to ‘reboot’. You’re not going to ‘tank’ in the NFL – nobody uses that word – but when I suggested that the Patriots were going to be 5-11 or 4-12 and have a top 10 pick, it was remarkable to see the way the media reacted… How do you make sure you get one of the top 3 quarterbacks in this Draft? You trade Stephon Gilmore and let guys go at the Trade Deadline. You don’t ‘upgrade’, you keep selling parts. You let eights guys opt-out. That was so not ‘Belichickian.’ It was all part of the plan and it’s coming true. Belichick is too smart not to reboot, and he’s too competitive to wanna see this for the next seven years. There’s only one way out of this dreck; Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, or Trey Lance.” (Full Segment Above)
Listen to Colin Cowherd explain why he thinks Bill Belichick is already in ‘reboot’ mode, and eyeballing the three star-studded quarterbacks expected to declare for next year’s Draft, Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, and Trey Lance.
Although Colin says it’s technically not ‘tanking’, Cowherd believes Belichick knows the only way out of this current nightmare for New England is to trade their best player, Stephon Gilmore, at the Trade Deadline, and sink towards the bottom of the AFC, and the top of the 2021 Draft board.
Check out the segment above as Colin details why Belichick and the Patriots have to make a move fast, with MVP candidate Tom Brady now 'winning the divorce by a landslide.'
