[QUOTE] Thanks for the post. The article would have been nice, but I still found it interesting. One trait that makes BB great IMO, is he will make the hard choices without emotional attachment, even though I think he cares deeply for his players. Players respect that, and I think BB has changed a lot of lives for the better, while still making the hard but right decisions. Us humans seem to respond positivly when someone cares for our well being. 20 something athletes need that it seems. BB didn't have to tour jails mentoring with jim Brown, someone with "no feelings" probably wouldn't do this as he doesn't gain anything from it. He never mentions it, but does it anyway. I think BB does this with players helping them outside of the public eye and not making a big deal about it. I don't understand the level of anger directed to the guy who took out the time to post the story. If you were both on the pats as long snappers with similar skill BB would cut epoch (just a hunch). IMO. If I was a writer I would be fired.

well thanks for your kind and logical words too. the link to the full article is actually at the bottom of the thread introduction. its kind of ironically funny how bel and dungy have sort of morphed into the same type of personality without most noticing it. they are both socially compassionate, left-leaning egalitarian DEMOCRATS who aim to do things beyond themselves and their own privileged narrow interests in making a global and national difference for mankind/humanity!
i particularly liked this part from the article:
I see my kids play and that stuff, but that’s a whole different involvement. It’s more emotional than my involvement with this team, as screwed up as that sounds.
this is a guy who really now gets it as a HUMAN BEING, way beyond the exclusive box of just being a NFL head coach. his job is first and foremost a business with a lot of calculated emotions, as it should be. when he most likely has to walk away from wilfork, steven neal, james sanders, leigh bodden and mankins after this year, you do not want him overly involved invested emotionally to the point he cant pull the necessary rational trigger; like red auerbach with the old big 3 or jerry jones and the oldsters after the cowboy dynasty. as fans/fanatics, it is always good that we have a much deeper emotional investment than a bel!
