新英格兰爱国者: How much longer will Bill 贝里奇克 keep coaching?

Now more than ever, 新英格兰爱国者 head coach Bill 贝里奇克 undoubtedly has all the motivation he needs to continue doing what he loves.

经过20年前所未有的统治之后, 新英格兰爱国者 are experiencing as much uncertainty as they have in the last two decades. The legendary coach-quarterback duo of Bill 贝里奇克 and Tom Brady has been broken up, with 20-year Patriot and all-time great Brady fleeing to Tampa Bay for the 2020 美国橄榄球联盟 season.

It’是福克斯伯勒时代的转折点…但是表演必须继续。

随着新英格兰的离开’作为长期的现场领导者,它的副业策划者承受了更大的压力。整个操作都在他手中,特许经营权的未来完全落在他的肩膀上。

Entering his 26th year as an 美国橄榄球联盟 head coach, Bill 贝里奇克 has never faced a more daunting task.

任务是 ’这是一件容易的事,但是如果有人可以继续在爱国者广场伪造的遗产, 就是那个开始的人。

贝里奇克’的数字说明了一切。在每位有经验的教练中,他在总比赛中排名第四(400),在总胜利中排名第三(273),在季后赛泊位排名第二(18),在季后赛比赛中排名第二(43),季后赛胜利(31) ),会议标题(9)和超级碗锦标赛(6)。

他的履历是有史以来最好的,而且他在NFL教练拉什莫尔山的位置几乎可以保证。

The question around the league is: What more is there for 贝里奇克 to aim for? As he embarks on as much of a fresh start as he has had in decades, what keeps him motivated?

Simply put, Bill 贝里奇克 is wired differently. He is never satisfied; his thirst for victory never fully quenched. The metrics may seem clear, but his quest for greatness goes much deeper than wins and losses.

As much as he denies it in public, 贝里奇克 undoubtedly thinks about the comparisons that have been and will be made between him and other legends of the game.

在他真正证明自己的至高无上之前,他的名字将永远被扔进有关他在NFL名人中的排名以及他在过去20年中在爱国者阶层中的地位的辩论。那里’s a place deep in Bill 贝里奇克’知道这一点的大脑’s what fuels him.

在清单上 the 美国橄榄球联盟 ’s best coaches, 贝里奇克 doesn’不想成为无休止的奋斗主题,以决定有史以来最伟大的教练。他希望成为唐·舒拉(Don Shula),汤姆·兰德里(Tom Landry)以及唱片簿中其他所有教练的一致上级。

如果这意味着教练,直到他通过舒拉’s 328 total wins, he’ll do it. He’s 55赢得舒拉’是创纪录的标记,因此可以通过六年平均10-6的成绩或五年平均11-5的成绩获得冠军。

Closer to Foxborough, fans and experts alike will always question whether 贝里奇克 or Brady meant more to the Patriots’十年的成功经验,在短短18年中赢得了9个超级碗,并赢得了6个。

贝里奇克之间将进行比较’s Patriots and Brady’短期内的海盗,但更有说服力的证据将远远超出布雷迪’的职业生涯。如果Belichick可以在没有布雷迪的领导下获得持续的成功,那么他也许可以证明精英教练一直是新英格兰的骨干力量。

在Belichick的剩余长度上加上一个数字会很好’s career, it’为诸如此类的定性目标制定时间表是非常困难的。真的没有说服NFL观众将Belichick视为明确的教练GOAT或爱国者的明显建筑师要花多长时间’ dynasty.

As his career continues, though, the 68-year old 贝里奇克 only further disproves his initial plan to retire before age 70. He will coach until he feels his point has been made and his name sits above all others.

新英格兰爱国者队在可预见的未来处于良好状态,因为他们的教练没有’t just want to win.

他需要赢。
