I think people under-rate deflate gate. I don’t think it was Brady, I think it was BB virtually eliminating fumbles. Raise your hand if you think turnovers are important in the NFL?

Well, Brady did say he likes soft balls (no pun intended)...unless he was covering for BB, which is not out of the question.  Those two work in tandem.

I agree, BB wasn't a winning coach before Brady was starting. Let's not  forget BB coached the Brown's and had one winning season.

Trust me he wasn't considered a genius until Brady became the starting QB.

Belichick, hands down.  Bill's defense, drafting, coaching staff, and in-game coaching decisions have just as much to do with the Paytoilets' wins as Brady's offense.

Cheating is not exclusive to the Patriots*.  Superior ownership, brass, QB and coaching PLUS cheating is how the Patriots* dynasty happened.

 

Most other teams are just cheating.  The ones who aren't are idiots.  And I don't think there's one team in the league that isn't doing it.  They just don't have all the other pieces in place like the Patriots* do.

Just curious, why did you decide to start a pats thread on a Bills board?  Are you hiding something from us?

I think he was considered a genius when he shut down the K-Gun offense and won a super bowl as a DC.

 

And let's not forget that he inherited a pure crap Browns team and led them to a real wild card berth (not having to back in).

 

Trust me.

Both could be true.  I am surprised used to I used to be.

Have the Pats really drafted that much better than the Bills? I know people will point to Gronkowski, but I don't think they've drafted that much better than the Bills or anyone in the league.

 

I think as far as trades go they seem to rip everyone off. I'm not sure why anyone trades with them.

Belichick. His record with backup QBs speaks for itself. 

 

He went 10-6 with Matt Cassel and wasnt Garrapolo 2-0?

Here.  Take a look for yourself.  And their trades are also worth mentioning.  Randy Moss.  Chris Hogan.  etc,...

Like how you conveniently edit my post where I mention their trades being good... I wouldn't put Chris Hogan on that list. If he didn't have a good playoff game he'd be forgotten. Also that was just a compensation pick, not really a trade...

Agree 100% with all of this.

 

I'll also add that Belichick knows the NFL rules better than anyone on earth - and he uses that knowledge to his advantage.

 

What most people call "cheating," is really just knowing the rules and using them to their benefit.

 

Very True ☝️

 

Its not really a fair question overall because neither BB or Brady has as much success without the other.  It’s really impossible to say who was more important.

It's definitely not black and white.  BB being the GM is what sways me toward him.  If he was "just the coach," I'd probably go with Brady.

Belicheat.  He enables Brady to cheat and Brady willfully complies. They both cheated.  Belicheat is the PEDs and Brady is Barry Bonds.

Conveniently edit your post?   I removed your reply to Bills2ref and must have removed the line above it.  I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive my error.   Additionally, I would put Chris Hogan on that list.  I feel he was a decent receiver that contributed to the Pats success; if Brady didn't trust Chris, he wouldn't have throw him the ball.  My point to the original question of is Brady or Belichick more responsible, I say Bill, without a doubt.  Anything the Pats dynasty has accomplished has Bill's fingerprints all over it.  Think of Bill as The Emperor and Tom as Darth Vader.  As good as Brady is, he would not have the same success on a different team.  Belichick could get almost as good production from another decent QB.  Imagine Bill with Big Ben, Andrew Luck, Pat Mahomes, etc....

They've only had one crack at it to find out during BB's reign and he went 11-15. I think that's a pretty compelling case. If he was able to trade Brady and keep Jimmy G, I don't think he'd have missed a beat.

belichick......leadership, preparations, discipline, managing the salary cap, game plans...taking away the opponents strengths, holding players accountable.

 

team, team, team.....look at his record without brady

 

for those knocking his record at previous teams....he wasn't the GM

 

but having said that.....ever notice the greatest coaches always seem to have a pro bowl level QB.

I chose Belichick. Brady has obviously become one of the all time greats, but I don't think he gets there without Belichick.

 

I still think we only understand a fraction of the cheating they did early in his career that got Brady to this level.

Your logic and that of 71% of the respondents is flawed.

 

Belichick is a great coach.

Brady is a great QB.

 

You don't get great coaches WITHOUT great QBs & you don't get dynasties without them either.  The question asked is who is more responsible for the dynasty.  The answer is obvious, Brady.  Without him the pats are just another team with an eccentric HC.  With him they are a dynasty. Toss in the fact that he has never held their feet to the fire monetarily and that he has publicly put up with 99% of Bill's crap and you have the NE dynasty.

 

Put Rogers in that situation and tell me what happens.

This is an interesting question.   My first reaction is that it is certainly Belichick, because it is certainly easy to imagine him having the same level of success with Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, Big Ben, or Drew Brees as QB.  Maybe even with Philip Rivers.  It would appear that Brady is the less rare element. 

 

On the other hand, Brady is the only QB who over the last decade who was willing to play for far below market value which has been a huge competitive advantage for the Patriots. I don't know how much a perennial $10-12 million salary cap advantage is worth to a team. 

The other factor that could very well be considered a third poll answer is.  Playing in the leagues worst division being practically spotted 6 games per year.   I don't think the dynasty would have happened in any other division.

Belicheat bends the rules to get any advantage and Tainted Tom often does just enough to win.

not to put a hole in your balloon but ....   

 

Belicheat still manages to win w/o Brady.  

 Backup quarterback Matt Cassel replaced Brady. Cassel's led the team to a win in Week 2 against the New York Jets, his first start since high school.
Despite finishing the regular season with an 11–5 record, the Patriots did not qualify for the playoffs—becoming the first 11-win team since the expansion to a 12-team playoff in 1990 to not make the playoffs,

 

Meh freaking Cassel!! 

 

And lets not forget the legends of James Garoppolo and Jacoby  Brisset

If I had to pick one it would be Belicheck but without both they dont have all these SB's.  It's the unlikely combination of best coach/best QB and longevity.
