Belichick isn't a hypocrite in my book, players know that he acts ruthlessly on behalf of the team which is what at good coach/GM have to do in this league. People who expect these guys to be saints are the ones who need to rethink.
Unfortunately for him the Pats are judged by postseason play, that's because the bar is so high given the legacy he has built.
The only things I object to about Belichick in this forum are: 1. treating him like is a God or someone who can never be questioned, or 2. pretending like the brilliant cap minutia fussiness is supposed to be a consolation for losing actual games. We are judged by results in this world not by the ability to fiddle around with rosters.
Do you object to scary dorks drooling over an underperforming Brady, where they run around saying "GOAT" all day long as he gets worse and worse every year since 2010?
They only do it 365 days out of the year while mixing in a few "Kraft is cheap" lines while ignoring a worsening Brady.
Hmm? I can see if they're gay and think Brady is dreamy, but it's become annoying here. Some fans want to be real and follow the team. We don't care about Brady's looks or want to stop by his mansion for tea and crumpets. That's their business. Don't make it everone else's here.
No one treats BB like a god, but when you understand your team has the best coach and GM ever, it's kinda hard to watch some here try to smear BB on a daily basis.
Defending BB is not "treating him like a god".
We're 4-1, would be 5-0 if Rosenhaus didn't involved and BB is the architect for what we have here.
Brady is not the end all be all. Never has been. That became a myth in 2007 when BB unfortunately spoiled him and Brady became a stats hound for our team.
Anonymis is a troll. Either he did not read what he posted or he's doing more trolling. Or, he needs to buy a dictionary, Troll Spanky.
How about slapping troll or two? Otherwise, it appears YOU are the hypocrite enabling them.
Bb spoiled him? a stats hound? Again, 2 very wrong and misleading statements.
First, bbs job is to surround great players with other great players to maximize talent and outcomes. He finally gave Brady a cadre of top notch wr's to utilize. And Brady killed it. exactly what bb wanted that offense to do. If they were one dimensional, blame bb and josh. They architected that 2007 offense.
Second...Brady's job is to score points. He did this better then anyone else in 2007 and the facts support it. even bb says the offense job is to score. The 2007 team racked them up and ran up scores. Bb could have pulled Brady and the starters when we were 4 TDs ahead, but never did...why? I think some of it has to do with bb's ego, and wanting the flip the finger at goodelll. For the spy gate mess. Again, bb controls who plays and how much, not Brady. the mastermind has a very big ego.
You don't have to agree with my gut feelings on Brady wanting to be more like Manning after getting 3 rings. But, you aren't changing my take on things. I have great instincts and I am right a lot. Period. I've been following sports for 30 years and have seen it all.
Brady put titles second, stats first.
I happen to be one who believes the story that Brady was pissed at the end of 2006 and let BB have it for needing to deal Branch.
BB then gets Welker and Moss. That's not spoiled? One slam dunk HOFer in his prime and the yang of that in an underneath slot guy in Welker?
YES. Spoiled. SPOILED. Gronk is the best TE to ever start a career in NFL history. Hernandez was no slouch with what he provided a QB. SPOILED.
BB already acquired Moss and Welker before the witch hunt, by the way. Has nothing to do with it.
The fact is, if you aren't tweaking your offense every offseason in some small way, defenses catch up to you.
From 2005-2006, they unveiled a shotgun spread base. They needed the tools. They got them in 2007.
In 2009, Brady still thought he could channel 2007. NOPE. Ok, so, then BB drafts two TEs to drive the seams with Welker. Success!
Moss was expendable, Branch was a better move because Branch runs all the routes from eevery spot, so in 2010, Brady's best year since 2006 in terms of being that wise QB, we had the best blanance and less predictability since 2004.
Brady was probably ticked when BB dealt Moss, but it was for his own good. CLEARLY.. Brady was floundering early in 2010, hence why the best GM ever fixed the problem.
But, Brady was so spoiled overall like Rodgers or a Brees, now a Manning in Denver, he lost much of what made him THE BEST QB, pre 2007.
When the end of this month rolls around, just watch how much better Brady will look. He will look like 2010 from Weeks 5-17. Just watch. If he doesn;t, then he's mailed it in and he's done.
Brady's JOB is to manage the offense wisely, not just score a lot of points. Gomer Manning once thought what you just said is true, but we saw why for years and still do, what that is absolutely false.
There is a lot more to the game than just racing to score points. Buffalo Bills lost 4 straight Sbs with that, Dan Marino never got it, Gomer still doesn't get it, Dan Fouts didn't get it, the Rams lost a SB with it and we lost TWO of them.
I am not trying to change your mind. But you pass off your gut feelings as fact, and although you may be right more than others, it doesn't mean you are always right.
let me use your logic here Russ. So, bb drafts a HOF in Seymour, then he goes out and grabs wilfork. Is bb spoiling Seymour? You are missing the point. This has nothing to do with spoiling. This has to do with winning. Wouldn't you want to surround your best players with guys that are also good? Thats bb's job as GM. Get the best talent to compliment your existing talent. That's all he did with moss and welker. You laud bb for fleecing uncle al, then in the same breath crap on bb for spoiling Brady? If anyone spoils, which they don't, its the guy at the top who acquires players.
Getting the best players you can get is not spoiling players, its called doing your job as a GM. And using them to win is doing your job as a coach. What should have bb done...pick inferior talent like our receiving corps this year just to not spoil Brady and make it tough on the offense?
