In response to coolade2's comment:
Belichick is the king of team. He rewrote the opening sequence of the super Bowl... having his TEAM run out together for the first time in history. this resulted in the end as a success.
No one is bigger than the team. Brady takes paycuts. Big name players get cut or traded (milloy, seymour, samuel, moss, Lloyd, Welker, Law, etc).
Versatile team players are valued... (troy brown, Edelman(we hope), Ninkovich, ) talented individuals are discounted... Blount, Talib (we expect).
The IRONY is that as a coach, it is all about HIM. He grooms his coaches from nobodies so that they carry out everything according to his own philosophy, doctrine, etc. which has resulted in the end as a failure.
Since the departure of coaches (weis, Crennel) that could truly be called collaborators not just underlings, Belichick has ultimately failed in the big games. (2 super bowls, 3 ACCCGs, 3 other playoff games)
This perspective becomes more apparent as the years waste away, but there was a warning back in 2005 that the loss of Weis in particular would be a damaging blow to this team.
The IRONY is MR. Team is actually the individual talent that he shuns... and this ends up hurting the team. wow... pretty deep but theres a lot of truth there for those who can handle it.
Weiss & Crennell hugging with BB after our last SB win.... Frame It! Its Ova
Funny how I knew it then but I keep holding out hope. Lets be real, Having those 2 was like having 3 head coaches. No I dont want to get into the "what has BB done without x,yz" talk but its too obvious to ignore. We can talk about how close he got all we want but the fact is, noone remembers 2nd place.
I mean I understand BB wants to win one soley on his own and all that but the lack of any real coaches coming aboard cant be understated. I would even venture to say we may be currently the only team not employing an ex player as a coach after Peppers left. So basically we have a WHOLE STAFF of coaches who never played the game and we wonder why we get embaressed in the playoffs? You need guys who been there in the trenches or a vet coach like Crennell who relates well to players.
I personally would love to see Gruden come here and help on offense as much as others probably hate him. Too Bad Collingsworth is such a good commentator because he would make a great WRs coach. He knows the game in and out. Patricia and McDaniels?? By time they get the needed experience, our Golden Boy will be long retired...... smh
