It wasn’t long ago when Bill Belichick was the mastermind behind the greatest dynasty that the NFL has ever seen. The New England Patriots dominated the league for nearly two full decades, making nine Super Bowl appearances and taking home six Lombardi Trophies. But halfway through his fourth season without quarterback Tom Brady, there is speculation that his job may be in serious jeopardy.

The post-Brady era started out respectable enough, with the team going 25-25 with a playoff appearance in the first three years.
