Michael Irvin is a moron.
I think the world of Belichick, I told him this, ‘Man, if it was up to me, that (Super Bowl) trophy would be called the Lombardi/Belichick.’ I don’t care what they think. It would be called the Lombardi/Belichick. That’s how good he is to do what he’s doing in this day and age, what the league is now.
I would call it the Lombardi/Belichick
In case anyone forgot, the Lombardi Trophy was named after Vince Lombardi, a coach who merely won 5 NFL titles in 7 years, including the first two Super Bowls, going a mere 105-35-6 during his coaching career.
Apparently Irvin must have forgotten about Belichick’ s stellar 36-44 record as coach of the Cleveland Browns in the mid ’90s. Or that he hasn’t won a Super Bowl in 7 years. Or that he has lost the last 2 Super Bowls Belichick has coached (following the 2007 and 2011 seasons, losing both to the Giants).
Keep talking Michael. You’ve got at least one person listening: yourself.
