[QUOTE]Nothing more I hate then a lil Rat! Whiskers and all!! Looking like Splinter from the Ninja Turtles! 1.) He left prematurely to take on a H.C. job he wasnt ready for when he was part of a great thing and was pretty good as a DB coach(he was average as a D.C.) 2.) After his little victory against us he must of thought he arrived and then he got embarrased and ran outta town and proceeded to fail in Cleveland where he had balloned into a Pig instead of a Rat and offered Nothing as far as a head coach and now is forced to be a lil beyotch for ESPN and analyse B.S. when he would rather be coaching! Screw you, You fr iggin Rat! Go Jump in A River you Shhhhhhmuck!

As I recall, when Mangini told Belichik about the job offer from the Jets, Belichik tried to tell him he was not ready for a head coaching gig yet.
This apparently infuriated Mangini, who not only left the team with a notebook (computer) with all the team's defensive info on it, he openly recruited coaches from the staff to bolt and join him in New York.
That must have sent Belichik into paroxyms of ecstasy.
You can probably deduce what happened subsequently, and why.
But what gets me is, later that season, when the Jets played at Foxboro, they "allegedly" did that same thing, but the league refused to act or investigate, and while not calling the Patriots liars, they did say about the incident, "We'll just have to agree to disagree"!
This "mea culpa" looks like it's designed to make him feel and look better to himself, and if others buy in to it, so much the better.
The time for truth is when you're in power. It's that simple.
