Bill Belichick understands challenge game-planning for Steelers’ Killer B’s
The New England Patriots enjoy an MVP candidate in Tom Brady. Bill Belichick believes the Pittsburgh Steelers possess as many as three.
When asked if Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown should be considered for this year’s NFL MVP award, Belichick provided a complimentary answer.
“Sure,” Belichick said about Brown’s MVP candidacy, via Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “Or give it to [Le’Veon] Bell, too. Ben [Roethlisberger] too. All great players, deserving of any recognition they get.”
All 22’s Steelers Facebook Live suggested that Brown was an MVP candidate two weeks ago. The Steelers star wideout is having an electric season. Entering Week 15, Brown leads the NFL in receptions (99) and receiving yards (1,509). When the Steelers need a big play more often than not the team dials up No. 84.
Not only do the Steelers boast the best receiver in the NFL, the team also harnesses the best running back in the NFL. Bell tops the league with 1,105 rushing yards.
Meanwhile, the third member of the Killer B’s is just a future Hall of Fame quarterback.
The three make the Steelers a daunting club for any opponent. Yet, Belichick and Brady have had plenty of success versus Pittsburgh. The Patriots are 10-2 against the Steelers, including playoffs, in the Belichick-Brady era. Despite the prosperity, Belichick knows the Steelers are a formidable opponent.
“It’s so unusual to have three players of that caliber all on the same team,” Belichick added, per Chris Adamski of the Tribune-Review.
Brown, Bell and Roethlisberger are a big reason why All 22 coined the Steelers as the most talented team in the NFL. Week 15’s marquee matchup will go a long way in determining the No. 1 seed in the AFC. The team with home-field advantage will have an easier path to Minneapolis.
