The stars are aligning. Thanks to Belichick's struggles without Tom Brady and the Patriots' lost season, Andy Reid will be remembered as the greatest coach of all-time when it's all said and done.
Already widely considered the best offensive mind the NFL has ever seen, Reid has the inside track to compile more accomplishments while Belichick's career is ending with a whimper.
With Patrick Mahomes at the height of his powers and an evolving defense that may be the league's best, the table is set for a delicious meal that concludes with the masses coming to the same conclusion Chiefs Kingdom already knows: Reid is a better coach than Belichick.
Let's look at three reasons Reid will be remembered as the greatest of all-time.
3 Reasons Andy Reid is the Greatest Coach of All-Time over Bill Belichick
1. Lasting Impressions Will Favor Reid
These coaches are trending in as far of opposite directions as they could possibly trend.
Reid is working on a second consecutive Super Bowl, sitting atop the AFC with a 5-1 record after hosting five consecutive AFC Championship games. Mahomes and Travis Kelce lead another top-10 offense while the defense is the even better unit, making the Chiefs the betting favorites to win the AFC.
Kansas City with Reid and Mahomes is one of the most dominant organizations we've seen since Belichick's Patriots with Tom Brady. Unfortunately for Belichick, things have been a trainwreck since Brady left.
Highlighted by last year's mystifying decision to make failed defensive coordinator Matt Patricia the offensive coordinator, Belichick has failed New England's offense at every turn without Brady.
Sitting at 1-5 through six weeks with perhaps the league's worst quarterback play from Mac Jones, the Patriots rank 31st in points per game (12.0) and have just three wins in their last 13 games dating back to last season.
There are even murmors of Belichick being fired, a stark fall from grace for the six-time Super Bowl-winning head coach. While Belichick is taking losses left and right, Reid is stockpiling wins.
Reid will continue to stack up accolades and accomplishments while Belichick's retirement feels closer than it ever has. Unless things change in a hurry, we'll remember Belichick falling on his face without Brady as Reid closes his coaching career atop the mountain.
Their coaching styles give Reid the edge too, as you'll see on the following page.
