Bill Belichick has been a revelation as a studio analyst.
Who would have thought?
The New England Patriots head coach made his debut last Friday on NFL Network’s “NFL 100 All-Time Team.” Belichick, along with co-hosts Rich Eisen and Cris Collinsworth, will reveal the NFL’s all-team team over the course of the six-part series. The best moment yet came Friday night, and Patriots fans will love it.
Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis joined the panel after being named to the all-time team. At one point during the discussion, Belichick shared a hilarious story in which he once joked about cutting Tom Brady if the Patriots quarterback if he ran a certain play.
“I told Brady, if you throw that Y-Shake on Ray Lewis, I’m gonna cut you,” Belichick said.
Brady’s response was perfect.
“If I throw that Y Hook route on Ray Lewis, you deserve to cut me,” he said, per Belichick.
Watch Belichick tell the story at the 4:25 mark in the video below:
