In response to wozzy's comment:
In response to TexasPat's comment:
RESPONSE: You can readily admit to being wrong? Than why, like Rusty, do you continue to defend BB the GM?
RESPONSE: BB is the best GM in the game?? Yes...that is laughable!
Find me a GM with a better winning % than Belichick over the last decade, otherwise blow it out your azz.
RESPONSE: Typical crude, low class Wozzy response...and so typical of a Homer. All emotion, no facts. The winning percentage of BB "THE COACH" underscores that he is one of, if not the greatest coach to ever prowl an NFL sideline. Especially when you consider that BB "THE COACH" has been saddled with BB "THE GM". Once again, to highlight the graveyard of wasted high draft picks by BB "THE GM" since 2006:
1.) 2006: RB Laurence Maroney (21st overall pick), WR Chad Jackson (36th overall pick), TE David Thomas (86th overall pick), TE Garrett Mills (106th overall pick);
2.) 2007: FS Brandon Meriweather (24th overall pick), DT Kareem Brown (127th overall pick);
3.) 2008: CB Terrence Wheatley (62nd overall pick), LB Shawn Crable (78th overall pick), QB Kevin O"Connell (94th overall pick);
4.) 2009: SS Patrick Chung (34th overall pick), DT Ron Brace (40th overall pick), CB Darius Butler (41st overall pick), WR Brandon Tate (83rd overall pick), LB Tyrone McKenzie (97th overall pick);
5.) 2010: LB/DE Jermaine Cunningham (53rd overall pick), WR Taylor Price (90th overall pick);
6.) 2011: CB Ras-I Dowling (33rd overall pick);
7.) 2012: SS Tavon Wilson (48th overall pick), DE Jake Bequette (90th overall pick);
8.) 2013: Based on what we've seen thus far, is anybody excited over what they've seen from Jamie Collins (52nd overall), CB Logan Ryan (83rd overall) SS Duron Harmon (91st overall), or WR Josh Boyce (102nd overall)?? Though WR Aaron Dobson (59th overall) has shown some potential, many here have taken to referring to him as Aaron Dropson, due to his unfortunate tendency to drop passes that hit him in the hands. NOT GOOD...as the BB "THE GM" beat goes on.
But Wooz...let's move on to discuss BB "THE GM's" off-season moves this year. How's that Danny Amendola signing working for you? How about the decision to pay Aaron Hernandez huge guaranteed money, despite having some knowledge that he was a troubled and troubling individual? How about the refusal to resign Wes Welker to a modest 2 year, $10mil. deal, despite knowing that Hernandez was lost to the team...thereby allowing him to join the Pats' top competitor in the AFC, the Denver Horsefaces?? How about his failure to add WR Emmanuel Sanders from the Steelers, when an extra million would have sealed the deal? How about the "great" job that BB "THE GM" did in adding quality depth at DT?
This ^ is your opinion which is worthless, almost the entire world of sports media, professional scouts, former players turned analysts agree with me and Bill Belichick is not an easy person to like... that's all the validation I need.
RESPONSE: What does it matter whether BB is "not an easy person to like"? Personally, I'm a huge BB "THE COACH" advocate. I vigorously defended him, and continue to defend him, over the Spygate BS. In fact, I can honestly say that I do like BB! I love the way he sticks it to the media. In my humble opinion, he is the greatest NFL coach of all-time.
BUT...the great decade of success for the Patriots was accomplished DESPITE BB "THE GM", not because of him! It was the uncanny ability of BB "THE COACH" to win by coaching up very average overall talent, and his great fortune in having the greatest QB of all-time playing playing for him.
It's a shame that BB won't acknowledge his failings...and turn the personnel decisions over to a GM who is a better judge of talent...and someone who won't fall in love with a player, just because that player played at certain school. Pats' beat writer Mike Reiss has suggested this, too. Oh sorry...I forgot...everyone agrees with you...LOL!!!
Sorry...but I can't turn a blind eye to the failings of BB "THE GM". If BB "THE GM" was half as good as BB "THE COACH", the Patriots would have at least two more championships over their decade of dominance.
I'm going to end it here, Wooz...without hurling any personal insults your way. I'm in far too good of a mood, after watching the Sox win the AL Championship last night.
