Question: How much closer do you sense we are getting to seeing Rob Gronkowski in a game?
Question: Safe to say he’s making progress?
Belichick: He’s day to day.
Question: As you get more information as to his availability toward the end of the week, how much do you envision that potentially changing any plans or can you just tweak a few things later in the week?
Belichick: I don’t know. I guess that’s a question to discuss at the end of the week, depending on whatever information is or isn’t available, I don’t know.
Question: Do you feel like he’s closer now than he was last week?
Belichick: He’s day-to-day.
Question: How did he look in practice last week?
Belichick: He practiced.
Question: Did he look like –
Belichick: He practiced.
I don't get why people love this stuff... It was kind of funny when he was winning championships. Now he just sounds like a d*nk most of the time. Stop getting out coached in the playoffs and then you can got back to treating everyone like you are better than them.
If this sort of behavior actually gives them a competitive advantage why hasn't it worked since 2004? I don't think it give them an advantage. In fact, I do not think that BB even thinks it does. I just think he hates the press and detests that part of his job.
So Brady playing poorly out of nowhere in the AFC Title games or SBs is BB "outcoached"?
When the SF 49ers went 1 and done from 1985-1987, Bill Walsh wasn't "outcoached". His teams were outplayed by other humans on the field.
Outchoached is when your team doesn't show up prepared and gets blown out early and often. THAT is outcoached.
When I read comments like yours I think about HOF coaches like Lombardi, Brown, Halas, etc, and would be WORSE than how BB handles it. They'd probably be more combative.
It's a mandatory thing, the access used to not be like this and BB is an old school guy. Pretty much, that's it in a nutshell.
BB protecting his team by never calling a player out publicly or being consistent with how he addresses injuries, is him being a good leader, doing what he should do.
It's really not yours, mine or Albie Breer's business how he best sees fit to run the team.
At the end of the day, the players (generally speaking) LOVE playing for him. He's disciplined, but he also is upfront with the players and does not bullsh*t them, which is all I can ask as a fan. And, that's on top of his brilliant GM work and coaching.
I disagree. Too me outcoached is when an opposing coach finds a weakness in your team and exploits to his advantage. Outcoached is when the other team makes better in game adjustments and takes advantage of what you are giving them. The fact is that in both Super Bowls, Coughlin did a better job of gameplanning (slow down the game and the Pats offense) and making in game adjustments (the Patriots were winning at half-time of both Super Bowls).
If your premise is correct that Brady costs them the playoff game versus the Jets in 2010, the second Super Bowl versus the Giants, and then again he cost them the AFC title game last year in the same way. Then I would say that is bad coaching. BB's response was not to dramatically change the offense, but to bring back the OC who started the whole pass-first attack.
I agree that he is a good leader and a great coach, and the way he coaches works for him. My main point is that his coaching style works for him. Other coaches have different styles and are still successful. Being old school is not what makes him a great coach, but it is what works for him.
