    How close are we to the end of BB?

    So i just listened to Felger and Mazz, whether you like them or not, they made some good points:

    1. McDaniels didn't even bother talking with other teams about coaching opportunities.

    2. He came back to NE last season before most of last season's head coach vacancies filled.

    3. Brady is nearing his end.

    4. Trading a 4th round pick for potentially a 6+ game rental.

    5. His current contract supposedly ends in 2013.

     

    I think the biggest question, to me atleast, is how he wants his legacy to end with regards to Brady. Does he want to prove he can win one without Brady? Or does he go out with/before Brady and leave the game on a high note and not risk going through a 5-11 season without Brady.

    All of this is pure speculation of course. I don't know what's going to happen. But judging how secretive BB is, he's probably not the type of person who will tell us at the beginning of the season and give the media a heads up on when he's retiring. He'll probably do what Ray Lewis did (mention it within weeks of the seasons end) or just retire after the season is completely over so that he is not obligated to have a million media sessions.

    I was thinking about this today...how old is the guy? Part of me thinks he would want to coach after Brady leaves to prove something. And then another part of me thinks he'll walk away when Brady does. I would venture to guess that Belichick stays two more years and then walks off into the sunset.

    Given the way Kraft like to leave things in BBs hands and all the glowing things McDaniels said about his time here, it seems there may be a succession plan in the works.  What better way than to learn the "Patriots Way" than from Kraft and BB together while employed as a Patriot?

    I wonder whether he might hang around for a couple more and then take a "mentor" position over McDaniels when/if he gets the head coaching job. He could keep that role for 1-2 years.

    Man, I don't know.  I think with the love for the game he has that he will be around for at least 5 more years.  I don't see him going to a GM roll, he is far to good to stay away from the coaching end of it,  I think he would have a problem not having control of that.  I would love to see him as a analyst on one of the football shows later on but for the next 5 years I think he is staying where he is at.

    Let's say for the sake of argument that a perpetually winning team is worth $30m a year in profits to the Krafts and that BB makes $10m a year to teach kids the game, then to stand around on the sidelines and look unhappy.  All NFL coaches look unhappy -- maybe it's part of the job description.  At least he doesn't have to scowl like a famous Pittsburgh coach.  

    If you were making $10m a year with credentials for lifetime employment, how many years past age 60 would you work as a teacher?  Remember, you can always delegate parts of your job off to underlings.  Joe Paterno went to age 84.

    He's a cyborg. We'll just replace his next battery pack and he'll keep on going. The guy's life is football.

    Re: How close are we to the end of BB?

     He loves the game too much to walk away right now or in the near future.I believe he can be the Patriots coach for as long as he wants the position and retire after however many seasons  that might be.He won't go to coach another team IMO.

      I also don't think when Brady retires,the Pats go 5-11.They went 11-5 when Brady was out for the year and had Casell take over.Belichick will find a QB and surround him with the players that are most likely to make him sucessful

    Re: How close are we to the end of BB?

    Too much is being read into the McDaniels deal if you ask me. What about this, what if he actually didn't want to be a distraction to the team by interviewing? What if he really wants to focus on his current gig, he's reasonably happy doing what he's doing and he's in no rush to move on. I suspect he's doing OK financially, likes working with Belichick and realizes that working with this team is about as good as it gets for an offensive coach.

    I don't think this depends on Brady, SB rings, team make-up, team record or inducements from Kraft. BB is internally motivated. If he continues to love what he does he stays forever (till he can't do anymore).

    Re: How close are we to the end of BB?

    If anyone is "Mr. Patriot" the nod goes to Belichick by a wide margin. His relationship and legacy is with the Pats and Krafts. Don't think BB needs money, more fame. Why move on? Other famous coaches have done it and failed miserably but holds the ultimate trophy by name.

    I said early on, that iF and when LA has a franchise it is possible that Brady and BB go together to LA.  Not for mad $$$ but close to home for Brady in the late stages of twilight. Just for the Love of the Game and Bob Kraft would understand. That's a loooong shot! Me thinks.
