In response to TFB12's comment:
BB needs to let the players talk it up a little bit. Stop the canned comments and if they are feeling a little tough then let them talk it. They get bullied before the game and then go out and seem to play scared, coaching included. Sure, I get it don't give the other team locker room material, well it doesn't always work that way. Be tough, talk tough, play tough!
check out my Patriots photoshops @ patsfanfotoshop.tumblr.com for some good laughs.
Back to BB, huh? "Stop the canned comments"? You do realize Julien has copped many tactics from BB as coach of the Bruins, right? Canned answers, sometimes a quick, terse, one liner, but steady as she goes from Julien. Yep. I'd bet dollars to donuts Julien has looked to BB and same deal with Chia, how he's mirrored many conceptual approaches to how BB allocates salary and how they value drafting and player development. But, mostly salary allocation. But, that's another discussion.
And you know what? The players fall right in line. Humble, not too high, not too low, etc, because they know the game, they've been there and it can change on a dime. I am loving it. I grew up watching Jeremy Jacobs be too cheap and completely screw over loyal Bruins fans, with many continuing to take it up the butt into the late 90s and 2000s. Comically, that's why those tools over there don't like me. They kept falling for it.
Hence, why I am not happy with Brady of late. If you aren't all in, why bother playing the season?
Enough with your Brady deflections. Do you see the Bruins best players making god awful decisions with the puck? NO!
Learn the game before commenting.
I have not made one comparison to the Bruins. I have had this stance for a long time and have posted it here on this forum many times. The Patriots allow themselves to get bullied going into the big games and they go out and seem to play a bit scared, coaches included. You don't think so? They have not seemed tough enough to win the big games lately. They don't have that attitude going in. They play just like the attitude they have displayed prior to the game. Low keyed, we are going to go out and do our best, execute, blah, blah, blah.. I want to hear... We are going to go out and punch them in the mouth, knock their heads off, rough them up, play physical football. Attitude goes a long way, especially in a physical sport.
