The consensus is that Bill Belichick is the greatest head coach in football history, but Asante Samuel is not the consensus.
Samuel played with Belichick for five seasons and won two Super Bowls, so he knows exactly what Belichick is all about.
But despite two rings on his hand, he’s out of the box.
In fact, to go one step further, he thinks calling Belichick the GOAT is a bad move.

The four-time Pro Bowler was recently asked by CBS Sports if he thought Belichick is the greatest coach of all time. Her response from him?
Bryant McFadden shot a dirty look at his own camera before Samuel intervened.
«You’re crazy?» she asked her.
In Samuel’s defense, he certainly came up with some logic. In his opinion, the dynasty of the New England Patriots was due to Tom Brady.
«Well, look at his record without Tom. You have to win without Tom,» Samuel continued. «One thing I learned about being great: you have to be great in different situations. It was all Tom. I was there. I saw it. It was Tom. Everybody knows it. Tom knows it. But he won’t admit it. Because he wants to to be politically correct. That’s why I’m here. And I’m going to tell the truth.
«I was there. I saw it. I confronted it. And we’ve been through it. And that’s how I do it.»
This is not the first time Samuel has criticized Belichick. Last year, on the «I AM ATHLETE» podcast, he ripped the nickname «Patriot Way.»

“Some of them were brainwashed talking about ‘The Patriot Way.’ I’m not going for any of that,» Samuel said on the podcast. «I don’t know what Patriot Way isn’t…
«All of them [were] company men, talking about ‘Patriot Way,'» he continued. «I don’t know about that. I’m here to get money, take care of my family, the same way Belichick is here to take care of his family, get money from him. So when you try to keep my money and you want all your money, I have zero respect for you.»
Samuel also said at the time that he would bring Belichick into the GOAT conversation if he wins a Super Bowl without Brady.
«I still give him credit, he can still be the greatest coach of all time,» Samuel said at the time. «He just has to win another Super Bowl.»
