Bill Belichick Is About to Get Fired, and Nobody Cares

Only three men have ever been with their own team longer than Belichick, and only one of them, Dallas’s Tom Landry, was ever fired — and that led to a national uproar that even famously unapologetic Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he regrets today. But one suspects there will be no such uproar, in Boston or anywhere, if Belichick is tossed, whether it’s this week or, as many suspect, at the end of the season. Belichick has always been seen less as a revered elder statesman like Landry and more as the Dark Lord of the NFL, a man who dealt with his own spying scandal a full decade and a half before Jim Harbaugh and Michigan did.
