I've been saying this for YEARS. BB promotes "never done nuthin'" yes men to key positions. If you want to be the best, get the best! But I'm afraid BB doesn't want to share power.
But I think it's more than just poor coaches. The talent is lacking as well, or some of these busts he has sent packing would do something elsewhere.
This shows from the draft. 12 of 16 first or second round draft picks spent on D since 2008 for this joke we see every Sunday?
I have proposed BB as an average or maybe a just better than average GM and been castigated for it.
But it's good to see some more fans finally getting it.
Somebody smart besides BB needs to have a big say on draft decisions and coaching personnel decisions.
Without Brady the last decade plus, this would have been a dismal era.
Remember, the very best teams over this period had a slew of key guys, especially on D, that BB inherited.
This is what this board has come down to. Guys like Babe proclaiming that BB inherited his SB teams and a few guys agreeing with him.
Meanwhile we have been to 5 SB's and won more games then any team IN NFL HISTORY over a 12 year period......but he is an average GM, and as Prolate says, "doesn't have talent on the roster" or whatever.
It's a joke. An absolute joke. Either trolls/fans of other teams or just don't get it. 1 or the other.
What it has come down to is reality rather than legend.
I didn't say he inherited his SB teams. I said he inherited significant components of them. Get it right.
And yes, there have been 5 SB appearances in 10 seasons. And Brady is the common denominator for those, not BB.
BB has never even sniffed a SB without Brady in any of the 7 seasons as a HC he did not have him. He made the playoffs 14% of the time without Brady.
But with Brady he has gone to the SB 50% of the time and made the playoffs 90% of the time.
Brady along with the core players he inherited won 3 SBs in 4 years. With players not inherited BB has lost 2 SBs.
12 of 16 first or second round picks since 2008 spent on the D by BB and it is one of the worst in the NFL.
You just can't ignore the facts and come off as "getting it" truechamp. Sooner or later spin always withers in the face of substance.
I guess you missed these facts by PCM
"The starting 11 in the SB on both sides of the ball on the 2003 team featured one guy on offense that BB didn't bring in (Troy Brown) and 3 guys on defense (McGinest, Bruschi, Law). On the 2004 team the starting 11 on offense were all brought in by BB and only 2 on D were not (McGinest, Bruschi)."
"So he definitely was responsbile for the O. And while Willie Mac, Bruschi and Law were great players, Bobby Hamilton, Ted Washington, Richard Seymour, Roman Phifer, Mike Vrabel, Tyrone Poole, Rodney Harrison, Eugene Wilson, Roosevelt Colvin, Vince Wilfork, Asante Samuel and Randall Gay is not a bad list either. BB did plenty to make those D's great both as a coach and GM."
Babe, you are a Bill Belichick hater with an agenda. You always have been and you always will be. Admittedly it is intelligent troll work on your part but troll work never the less.
