Overview

Bill Belichick started collecting Lombardi Trophies like some people collect coasters and won his fourth Super Bowl title in 2015. No other NFL team has been as successful since Belichick became the Patriots' head coach in 2000, winning titles after the 2001, 2003, 2004, and 2014 seasons, along with Super Bowl appearances after the 2007 and 2011 seasons. But is Belichick the best NFL coach of all time? In Bill Belichick vs. the NFL, author Erik Frenz not only explains what separates Belichick from his peers and compares his accomplishments to some of the all-time legends, but tells why, if there were a Mount Rushmore of NFL coaches, Belichick's face would already be on it. From his upbringing as a coach's son to learning under Bill Parcells to creating his own coaching tree, he has established a new standard that may be unparalleled in football history.

The New England Patriots have continually proven themselves as one of the most dominant teams in the NFL. With Coach Bill Belichick at the helm, and quarterback Tom Brady leading the charge, the Patriots are consistent Super Bowl contenders if not victors. It’s not only the team’s success and place in football history that cannot be questioned, but Belichick’s as well.  

 

In Bill Belichick vs. the NFL: The Case for the NFL’s Greatest Coach, (Triumph Books, October 15, 2016), NFL writer Erik Frenz measures Belichick’s place in history. With four Super Bowl titles under his belt, and two additional Super Bowl appearances, Belichick is constantly fighting a league that does everything in its power to even the playing field between teams, and he’s winning. Even compared to great coaches of generations past, Frenz argues that Belichick always come out on top. Highlights include:

 

  • An illuminating foreword by NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock
  • A look at Belichick’s early life and upbringing as a coach’s son and how it helped him get to where he is today
  • Head-to-head comparisons of Belichick’s coaching style and successes to other storied NFL coaches, including Pete Carroll, Tom Coughlin and Vince Lombardi,
  • A detailed look at “Spygate” and “Deflategate”—how they tarnished the Patriots’ image but weren’t actually that scandalous
  • An entire chapter on the synergy between Tom Brady and Bill Belichick and how neither one could be credited with so much success without the other

 

In Bill Belichick vs. the NFL, author Erik Frenz not only explains what separates Belichick from his peers and compares his accomplishments to some of the all-time legends, but tells why, if there were a Mount Rushmore of NFL coaches, Belichick's face would already be on it. From his upbringing as a coach's son to learning under Bill Parcells to creating his own coaching tree, he has established a new standard that may be unparalleled in football history.
