In response to 49Patriots' comment:
What have you done lately leauge, lately, not much, but he's the greatest coach in the NFL. I hope this motivates him to try to dominate the NFL.
Looks like he may have fixed the defensive backfield, assuming he keeps Arrington far off the field, and he should have a GOOD defense to match his elite offense. He may be primed to make a deep run into the Superbowl.
Also, if BB had Coughlin's pass rush for the past 5 years, BB would have another dynasty. I think Coughlin's overrated. Since 2006, he's only won 8 playoff games. All 8 came in 2007 and '12. His team gets hot and makes a run, he doesn't coach them there. This year, a one and done would not surprise me.
I agree that it is what have you done for me lately league, and the issue is probably that over the past seven seasons, it is hard to look what BB has done as been the best in the league. The onyl thing they have really done, is pile up regular season wins in that stretch.
He probably still is the best coach in the NFL, but the difference between him the next best coaches is getting smaller.
Since 2006, the Patriots only have 4 playoff wins, 6 if you count the 2006 season. Over the 5 season stretch from 2007-2011 you really think the Patriots (two Super Bowl losses, two one-and-done in the playoffs, one playoff missed) have been a better team than the Giants (two Super Bowl wins, one one-and-done and two playoffs missed)?
