For roughly two decades, the Buffalo Bills have been on the wrong end of one of the greatest runs for a head coach in the NFL. Bill Belichick built a dynasty with the New England Patriots that would win the AFC East 17 times in 19 seasons while also winning the Super Bowl six times.

The Patriots haven't been nearly as productive since Tom Brady left and after this season, New England decided it was time to make a change. It doesn't make sense for the fan base to root for a coach who has caused so much anguish but that is where the fans find themselves now.

Belichick is looking to continue coaching and has had two interviews with the Atlanta Falcons, the second of which was on Friday.

So why exactly should the Buffalo Bills be rooting for Bill Belichick?

The reason that the Bills should hope that the Falcons make Bill Belichick their next head coach is because they are supposedly looking to meet with a coach currently on Sean McDermott's staff.

According to Jonathan Jones with CBS Sports, the Atlanta Falcons requested an interview with interim offensive coordinator Joe Brady. He took over for Ken Dorsey midway through the season and has been a driving force behind the turnaround the offense has had this year.

As Jones notes, this would not be the first time Brady interviewed with the Falcons as he was a candidate for the head coach position in 2021 when he was offensive coordinator of the Carolina Panthers. The Falcons ended up going with Arthur Smith but now have renewed interest in Brady.

While Brady is technically the interim offensive coordinator, it would be surprising if he wasn't offered the role past this season. However, the Bills may not have much of a chance to do that if Joe Brady were to be offered the head coaching job with the Atlanta Falcons.
