In response to TFB12's comment:
Bill Belichick is the greatest coach I have ever watched in the NFL. The man is just plain fascinating to watch work. He was the reason I became a Pats fan. You go back and look at the team of coaches he surrounded himself with in Cleveland, some very recognizable names there. Had the Browns never left and moved to Baltimore that Browns team would have won a couple of Super Bowls with Bill Belichick. And it's possible he may have never joined the Patriots. How crazy is that. If you watched the NFL network 2 part show about Belichick you would probably agree that it was some of the best tv ever. To get a little look of BB behind the scenes is amazing tv.
However, as much as I like BB, I have no problem being objective and admitting he has some faults.
He is horrible in most interviews. He really could be better with the media. This really hurts how the team is perceived by others. One of the reasons the team is so disliked by fans and some players around the league.
I think he controls too much. I think being the head coach and the GM is a conflict of interest and is the reason why BB is not the great GM some like to think he is. I think overall the team suffers because they do not have a good GM who isn't also the coach.
It's great fun having a team and players you like and cheer for but it takes the experience to a whole higher level when you have an amazing coach that you find fascinating and look forward to watching coach on Sunday just as much as you enjoy watching the players play. That is what you get with Bill Belicheck as your teams head coach.

Since coming to this board and reading all the criticism of BB's drafting I've done some research on the drafting success of the 32 NFL teams since 2000. The Patriots are always in the top ten as far as drafting successful players. Don't take my word for it do the work yourself but those are the results.
Also, this TEAM (not Brady - the team) has won 100 games more than it has lost under this staff. Again, don't take my word - look it up.
So - stop b!tching and enjoy the ride! My God, what do you people expect? How about being a Brown's fan?
As far as the original post goes - it doesn't suprise me that this info is not common knowledge - that's Belichick....like it or leave it!!
I'm afraid that unvarnished, truly objective observations such as these are lost on those who choose to believe what they choose to believe.
And I'm really tired of reading about Pioli. He did exactly what in KC?
