In response to mthurl's comment:
Bill Belichick is the worst person doing a press conference. Period. When I say the worst, I mean the worst on the planet, not just football, not just sports...the planet. He gives zero information and as a fan that is frustrating - he won't even answer a simple question - something like, how is the weather? Won't be answered directly if he is not in the mood. Speaking of mood, he is not consistent in that department either. I find it best to read his transcripts - if you have to pay attention at all - because his sound/demeanor is depressing...you think something is seriously wrong even after they just won the game.
As long as he wins he can get away with this, but man if he ever started to lose? I can't see how he could survive. I know coaches that lose won't survive anyway, but some really can extend it a bit longer by being popular with the media and fans (see Rex Ryan). I imagine Kraft puts up with it because he understands just how good a coach he has here. Cleveland certainly didn't put up with it, they harassed him endlessly and drove him out of town, trying to ruin his reputation in the process. Take a look back one to five years after he left Cleveland, he was still being talked about as a morbid villain that would ruin your franchise. We were mocked by the Cleveland media when we hired him, but if Bill won there they would be saying the same stuff we do around here...great coach...we win...so we put up with his handling of his media responsibilities.
And to all the, "he can be very interesting and informative", people. When he is in those situations he is not talking about relative information/insight to this team and what is going on. He is talking about zone defenses from 1982. He is talking about a linebacker that played 20 years ago. He is talking about the run blocking schemes at the Navy academy and how they changed between the years of 1972-1979. He is not giving you anything.
What would you rather have? Successful winning seasons or a coach who yaps like a clown like Rex Ryan and nothing to show for it? You have the former but sounds like you prefer the latter.
I'd rather have the successful winning coach, than the guy who is good in a press conference. Of course I'd like to have both, but that's me just being a spoiled, entitled fan.
