No coach has had more overall, high-level success in Boston-area professional sports than Bill Belichick, who has been head coach of the New England Patriots since 2000. In that time he has 260 wins, including 30 playoff victories, 17 AFC East titles, 13 appearances in the conference championship game, nine Super Bowl appearances and six rings.

Belichick has coached in the National Football League since 1975 and been part of eight Super Bowl-winning teams. However, the last three years have not been as successful, for a number of reasons.

That leads the MaineStay Media/VillageSoup sports staff to ask, in its latest poll: Do you think it is time for the New England Patriots to move on from coach/general manager Bill Belichick?

In a previous poll, readers were asked: Which Boston-based professional winter sports team will have the most successful 2022-23 campaign — Celtics or Bruins?

Fifty-three-point-eight percent said that the Celtics and Bruins will experience equally successful years, as they make playoff appearances and contend for conference and league championships. Another 23.1 percent said the Bruins because they have a strong mixture of veterans and young up-and-comers, while 23.1 percent said the Celtics because they have the depth, talent and experience.

Through Dec. 7, the teams, which play their home games at TD Garden, have the best records in their leagues – Celtics 21-5 and Bruins 21-3-1.
