Belichick might be the most and least sentimental coach in the league. The reverence that he holds for some players after they are done—see Bruschi, Tedy—is nearly unparalleled, but he also won’t hesitate to cut you or trade you—too many to name here—if you’ve outlived your usefulness to the Patriots.
