Can a football coach be a genius?

Genius:

 

Extraordinary intellectual and creative power.

 

A person of extraordinary intellect and talent: “One is not born a genius, one becomes a genius” (Simone de Beauvoir).

 

A person who has an exceptionally high intelligence quotient, typically above 140.

 

A strong natural talent, aptitude, or inclination: has a genius for choosing the right words.

 

One who has such a talent or inclination: a genius at diplomacy.

 

 

So I would say, yes, a football coach could be considered a genius. For whatever that is worth. I mean a football genius doesn't really give anything to society or the world in general.... but what the hey.

Pretty much nails it, IMO; I think Belicheck has certainly proven that in the realm of football, he probably is a "genius" - though being that good at a specific skill-set doesn't necessarily translate into real world "genius" - believe me, I've been trying to capitalize on my genius at drinking heavily for years with no luck.

 

But to look at sky's definitions:

 

"Extraordinary intellectual and creative power; A person of extraordinary intellect and talent." - I think that unless you want to chalk the Pats success up to Pioli, Weis, and Crennell, Belicheck can make a claim to that, given the Pats success at finding diamond-in-the-rough players and multiple offensive and defensive schemes. Certainly his leuitenants are quite accomplished in their own right, but Belicheck at the very least has the good sense to let them do their thing.

 

"A strong natural talent, aptitude, or inclination; One who has such a talent or inclination" - this might cinch it - at the VERY least, as a HC, Belicheck seems to have an aptitude for getting the most out of his players, whether it's through effort or maximizing their abilities in his scheme, and rarely seems to make a stupid game-day decision (I'm sure he's had some goofs, but the good far outweighs the bad - I'll bet Einstein thought up a turd equation or two in his day).

C'mon, dude, haven't you been checking out the media/Pats MBs? The Pats GET NO RESPECT. The Pats have been dissed by the media all season.
