Bill Belichick 4th Most Popular Coach While Pats Have 2nd Worst Record in the NFL
Wow! This new study is enough to bring an almost smile to the face of Bill Belichick just in time for the holidays. Gambling.com just revealed the results of a new study looking at the NFL’s most popular coaches and Bill Belichick took home 4th place!
The study looked at the number of Google searches each NFL coach received over the past year. Belichick accounted for over 110k searches. It seems a little ironic that Bill Belichick was found to be the 4th most popular coach at a moment in time where the Patriots have the 2nd worst record in the entire NFL and the worst record the Patriots have had in a long time. Right now this season is tracking as the Patriots 5th worst season ever. That’s almost as bad of news as this story about giant spiders invading Massachusetts soon.
But… Bill Belichick has a long, long history of winning in New England so it’s no wonder we have a love for the grumpy, frumpy Bill. He helped bring us a lot of joy over the years as coach.
If you’re curious who beat Bill, in 1st place is the Denver Broncos’ Sean Payton (251k searches), while Miami Dolphins’ head coach Mike McDaniel (201k searches) took home 2nd, and Nick Sirianni from the Philadelphia Eagles came in 3rd. All data was collected on December 7th 2023.
Speaking of Patriots fandom and NOT being fairweather, I thought it’d be interesting to run down some big Hollywood actors and actresses who consider themselves Patriots fans. Just like we feel some sort of connection with Bill Belichick (though I realize that’s being tested this season for many of you), maybe this list will help add a few titles to your streaming watch list. Gotta support a fellow Patriots fan!!!
