Per Peter King, Edeleman will be the SB MVP!.....WOW
Thoughts on these predictions? Brady and the Pats would go down as the best QB ever and team of the century if they pull of this victory after everything that has happened to them this year!
Looks like Peter wants his press pass to Foxboro back!
What happened between King and the Pats? I've heard some things but never really got a definte answer. I know during one of hte Super Bowls one write for each team was granted access and the Pats gave it to him. Why did things go sour, if they did?
I'll never forget it, Sept 2007, WEEI:
Dale and Holley had an exclusive interview with King, I believe it was their weekly piece with him. I remember it was a MOnday and I was in the office and ready to hear how they would call him out for lying repeatedly about the facts.
Basically, they confronted King with lying about the witch hunt, what NBC was doing, along with ESPN. They basically quoted the former coaches like Chuck Knox, Bud Grant, Parcells, Jimmy Johnson, Don Shula (yup, before he realized NE might break the record), Bill COwher, etc, all former coaches mind you, who said they all did what BB did because it was very common and something that was considered part of a team's scouting process if they so chose to film the game.
All of a sudden, when it got obvious that King was cornered with the facts he couldn't counter, his cell phone mysteriously broke up and he never called back in to finish his segment. It was so obvious and awkward.
King used to have carte blanche access into Foxborough before that. The irony is, around that time he was moving from NJ to Boston for NBC likely to be the point person into Patriot Land for NBC. It never happened. He used to write columns, have inside info, the works, After Sept 2007....not anymore.
Matt Light and he were friendly where he'd still show up for his charity events on campus, but he never, ever got back into the innner walls of the complex like he had before.
Kraft and the PAts aren't dumb. The millisecond you sell out and try to profit off of them for selfish gain, you're cooked.
It's why Bruschi's work at ESPN is so disturbing. I guess Bruschi is not interested in being considered as classy as other all time greats. He's more interested about himself and being greedy. Sad, but true. He could work for NFLN or NESN or anyone.
Real Pats fans will remember him selling out to ESPN, the very outlet that lied and took charge of the witch hunt. Again, that;s worse than chubby King thinking people care about his stupid hotel and coffee notes from the road while being lazy as a journalist.
King did the same thing as Bruschi and checked is integrity at the door.
I agree with all things you say about King, but honestly Bruschi hasnt done anything worng or against the Pats while at ESPN. In fact, he has backed up BB and the Pats when other have questioned the Pats previous because of Spygate. Bruschi is not going to pick the Pats every game, and that's good because he doesnt get paid to be a homer or he would work for NESN, your attacks on Bruschi are completelty off base.
