Why did Belichick take Patriots to Jim Brown statue?
Bill Belichick has plenty of memories from his time in Cleveland as head coach, now New England thought they experience what the Browns are about. After the 33-13 win last weekend they visited the Paul Brown statue, where plenty of the players posted pictures on social media.
Was there a specific reason Coach decided to delay the Patriots departure? Of course their was, Belichick has a reason for everything, as he explained to ESPN's Mike Reiss.
"I think, honestly, any person – football player or otherwise – can learn a lot from Jim Brown and what he represents and what he stands for. But particularly, as it relates to our football team, Jim Brown, in my opinion, is the greatest player that ever played.”
During his time as head coach at the Browns between 1991-95 because he connected with morals of Cleveland and brought them with him when he came to New England, and look how that has panned out.
