The NFL game has passed by Bill Belichick. He has yesterday's defensive schemes for today's offenses. No pass rush to speak of. Cannot change on the fly or adjust. The young coaches are taking over (Tomlin, Harbaugh, Harbaugh, McCarthy, Wisenhunt, Kubiak, etc.) and BB is behind the times. Time to move on, build a new philosophy and a new team from the ground up for the modern era. This is why Bill Parcells and Mike Ditka had to retire - the game passed them by and they knew it. Bill Belichick, you should have some honor and do the right thing: retire. The games get REAL tough at this time of the year and 20 points can get hard to come by - and his preparations don't appear to include anything less than 35 points provided by the offense. Trench warfare (like tonight's game) are a way of life in January football and if your schemes don't plan for that, time for a new schemer.
You are a complete idiot. BB made it to the Super Bowl last year an dvisional final this year. Where were Tomlin, McCarthy, Kubiak and Wisenhunt? You cannot have everything in the salary cap error and BB is making the decisions he feels will win the most games. What NFL team has had more success than the Partiots in the last 10 years?
Actually, you should have said the past 15 years because in the past 10 years both the Giants and the Steelers have had as much success as the Pats.
"Actually" slick, in the last 10 years, although all three teams mentioned have 2 SB wins, it's pretty hard to argue the Giants and Steelers have had the same success as the Pats. IN that time period the facts are:
Regular season record: Pats = 126-24, Steelers 103-57, and Giants 87-73
Playoff apperances: Pats 9, Steelers 6, Giants 5.
Superbowl appearances: Pats 4, Steelers 3, Giants 2.
Wow! A little defensive, are we, chief? I was speaking of success in terms of the bottom line which is the Super Bowl. And maybe I was being a little too subtle for you but I was "actually" paying the Pats a compliment. So I'll state it outright for you: In the past 15 years no franchise has had more success in winning championships than New England.
Calm down. I realize that the stellar regular season record doesn't mean jack, particularly when six of the games are against powerhouses like the Jets and the Bills, and they haven't won the big one since the '04 season.
I was just giving you something to hang your hat on as the glory days of New England football recede relentlessly into the past. ;)
