New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick has consistently marched to the beat of his own drum.
He didn’t become arguably the greatest to ever do it by trying to follow the latest trend, and that way of thinking extends to his outfit choices as well.
This week, during a Patriots practice, eagle-eyed fans couldn’t help but take stock of Belichick’s choice of attire.
It largely speaks for itself:

It doesn’t get more Bill Belichick than that.
Fan reactions to the visual were largely what you would expect under these circumstances:

In Michael Lombardi’s book “Bill didn’t care. Get your shit on and get outside to practice.” https://t.co/Q5iuNrteCW

I mean it when I say this: I yearn for the day when I can dress like Belichick and not be judged. https://t.co/Qod2FV2f2k

Big picture, this has been a tough year for New England. Between Mac Jones getting hurt (karma, some might say) and the AFC East just being really good in 2022, the Patriots have gotten left behind.
As things currently stand, Belichick and Co. currently find themselves at the bottom of the division.
Chargers fans are coping with the loss in their own special way. https://t.co/68BhkruIru

With match-ups looming against the New York Jets, Minnesota Vikings and Buffalo Bills over the next three weeks, it’s hard to see how things improve for New England from here.
It really wouldn’t be all that shocking to see the Patriots at 5-7 heading into their Dec. 12 battle against the Arizona Cardinals.
All dynasties come to an end eventually, and it seems as though that is what has happened with Belichick’s run atop the NFL.
