Should the Lombardi Trophy be renamed "The Belichick Trophy"? | KFAN 100.3

There's a groundswell movement going right now that, if successful, would turn the NFL on it's head.

The movement surrounds the official name of the trophy given out to a Super Bowl winning team each and every year for the NFL.

Presently, the trophy is named after historic Green Bay Packers head coach Vince Lombardi. It's called "The Vince Lombardi Trophy", his name is right there on the base of the trophy above the NFL crest. Lombardi coached the Packers to an all-time record of 89-29-4 (.754 winning percentage). They won 3 NFL championships but only 2 Super Bowls (Super Bowls I & II) in a day and age when there were only 15 NFL teams.

The thought here would surround renaming The Lombardi Trophy after New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick who has coached the Patriots to a 225-79 record (.740 winning percentage) and SIX Super Bowl championships...all in a day and age when there are 32 teams spreading talent throughout the league.

Belichick has amassed 136 more career victories and has tallied 4 more Super Bowl titles than Lombardi ever did, yet the trophy still dons the name of the late Packers coach.

So what do you think? Should the NFL consider renaming the "Lombardi Trophy" the "Belichick Trophy" to reflect the feats of the NFL coach with the most Super Bowl wins by far?

 

Sure it may be led by Patriots fans and The Common Man Dan Cole, but hey anything can happen right?
