Should the Lombardi Trophy be renamed for Belichick in the future?

Just name the COTY award as the Belichick Award.

This I wouldn't mind, but you don't change the name of the trophy that's synonymous with winning the super bowl for like 50 years. 

You can consider Bill the greatest coach of all time if you'd like, but his status as the greatest coach at the time (and maybe still today) is not the only reason why Lombardi had the trophy named after him. It's also the impact he had on turning the game into the most popular sport in the world, it's beyond just his skill its his cultural and historical impact on the sport. 

At best you have this conversation after he's retired and been away for a couple years. Just seems wrong to name the ultimate prize after a guy that still currently coaching lol.
