    This is a really interesting piece on Extra Points. It's quite a gesture by BB to Schiano. It also gives draftniks and fans a window into BBs connection with Rutgers, and how much stock he puts into trusted opinions from coaches. 

    Still, it is amazing that in what is still a business that coaches would help each other like this out of cameraderie. It's also a testament to BB's professionalism that other coaches would come seek his guidance with these "front office" and "coaches office" logistics.




    and it doesn't hurt having a potential trade partner with someone in a different conference

    OK. This isn't a thread about BB as a GM vs HC. 

     It's about having other teams visit to study your interal operations.

    I think BB is a great guy. He's just the kind of weirdo I would like while others detested him.

    I think it,is a generous gesture. I think as some people get,older, possibly toward the tail nd of their careers, they reflect more, and think about friends and legacies . This is another notch in bb's belt, one that signals the great respect he has for the game and his friendships. 

    It also doesn't hurt keeping a close friend close just in case you may want to work out a trade for say mallet or someone else...

    "He will look to slide his agenda in at every turn."

    Which is probably the thing that binds the two of you (Rusty and Babe) so closely and drives the rest of us nuts. 

    The only reason you didn't have to "slide" your agenda in is because your agenda is already furthered by ZBellino's post. No offense to ZBellino who is one of our all-time best posters and was just sharing useful info.

    Of course the problem with agendas is that you only intake new information that confirms your agenda. Making the idea of discussion a fraud. Welcome to propoganda posing as discussion. I've got both of your agendas memorized by now. I could actually take over for either of your handles if you decide to leave...

    You sidetracked this thread as much as Babe did in the end, congrats. 

    As for BB, this is the kind of stuff that continues to set him apart as a coach and I love that he feels no need to get credit publicly for the things he does...

    In an era of free agency and salary caps, the only enduring competitive advantage for a team is its management and its learning curve. Bill is brilliant at both. He has a strategic vision and stays true to it but he also has the ability to create processes and structure that allow him to step-and-repeat his way to consistent success while the world around him changes and evolves. You have to be a student of leadership to truly appreciate what he has built. I would also like to add that if you have a system that you are WAY down the learning curve on, it is smart to prosletyze it across the industry. The higher its adoption rate, the greater your chances of building your cycles of learning advantage. I am not saying that this is why BB is opening his inner sanctum to the Bucs, but it does not hurt him or the Patriots. This guy is very special leader and we as fans, and the Krafts as stockholders, are very fortunate to have him guiding the Patriots.


    Nice post, ZB!

    I find it odd that he is inviting Tampa Bay this year with playing the Buc's in season and in preseason.

    ZB, thanks for the link and for the thread.  It truly is a tribute to the organizational talents of BB regardless of the capacity in which he is operating.

    Re: BB literally putting on a clinic.

    Belichick seems to appreciate everything he's learned from the coaches who went before him and who helped him make his way in his career.  I think it's important for him to help others to show his appreciation and gratitude to those who helped him.  Belichick really has a strong sense of the history of the game and the legacies those before him created.  I think as he gets older, he sees himself as having a duty, almost, to lay the foundations for others to carry the game forward when he's gone.

    Please explain why this could be so in this case.

     

     



    I think, real simplistically, it's like this. 

     

    You, and two other guys play Texas Holdem as a poker team, splitting your winnings. You go to a bar where everyone has a team tournament, but they play 5 card. 

    If you export your game, you ensure your advantage in every contest in perpetuity given that you are "way down the curve" as Neimd says. Even as your opponents become more comfortable with holdem, your experience continues to stack on theirs. You never have to worry about competing with them at 5 card.

    Second, you make it easier to fill holes in your team should anyone leave, or should you isolate a weak link, etc, because now ... everyone knows how to play holdem at least at a basic level.

     




    Only problem I see with this theory is......

     

     

    What if your system is far superior to the other guys? Sure, you are more advanced in the system but you just improved him, and other factors he may have going for him that are superior to yours (such as a better defense for example) may vault him ahead of you. Any way you slice it, you made him better and that can't help you in a competition with other factors in play.

    I think the theory is viable in a void. But the NFL isn't a void.

     

     



    My guess is that it's viable outside a void. 

     

    By student of leadership, I took it that Neimd meant himself. I would be willing to bet (though he could just be some guy, lol) this is what he has experience in, and that this idea, of scaffolding an industry based on your managment model, is possibly tried and true. 

    Or it could just be from Niemd. Haha. 

    At any rate .... it's the most plausible answer I've read. 

     




    I think you pretty much summed it up. The key is to get everyone to play on your turf, by your rules, and with your processes. Then you let cycles of learning take over. If it's taken you 5 years, say, to understand the exceptions to the rules by which you run your organization, even if it takes the new guy half the time to get there, you have another 2.5 years of further learning. Another advantage is that you can bring in players that have some familiarity with your system and processes, and they will add value to your overall work product faster than a more talented guy out of a "foreign" system. I know it sounds like a lot of theory but I think BB lives it. So do other great leaders.

     


    Having said that, in no way did I mean to diminish the strength of BB's relationships in the football industry and his allegiance to them.
