    It was a comp 6th rounder at that.

    That is actually a historic bungling IMO. He's the best head coach of his generation
    Who? Belichick? Are you nuts? He has had one of the top 2 QBs of the last 15 years! Don't get me wrong, BB is a very good coach, but not the best...by far!

    Heck, give an average coach like Rex Ryan a QB like Brady and how many SBs would he have? Rex Ryan would have won two Super Bowls in his first two seasons as a head coach if he had someone like Brady rather than dragging Sanchez to AFC championship games.

    People who can actually tell why certain routes/blocks/coverage are being run know differently. I guess if all you can tell is whether someone gained or lost yardage during a pass or the simple route someone ran who caught the ball, then I guess you would think that way. When you see the concepts in action and know what you're looking at, you have a fuller understanding of good/average coaching.

    All you need to do is look at his win % to see that he is the best of his generation. How many head coaches can say they are legitimate Superbowl contenders every single season for over a decade?
    The entire team retires or moves on from their Superbowl years? Still a legitimate contender. Worst defense in the league, can't stop a nose bleed? Still contending for a Superbowl right up through the 4th quarter OF THE SUPERBOWL. Lose a bunch of guys to injuries? Still a contender. Playing teams with way more talent across the board? Down by 24 points at the half? Still going to win.

    If you can be serious for a second and tell me a head coach of his generation that you would rather have for the long haul, please let me know.

    Everyone said the Pats were finished this season. They've lost a lot of what little they did have to injuries and yet they're the AFC favorites for the Superbowl again.

    There is just no way Belichick isn't the best HC in the league, sorry. Yes, he has Brady, but Brady isn't the one creating turn overs on defense with nobody hacks. He's not the one drafting pro bowlers despite really late picks every season. On top of that, a lot of the league if imitating what he does every few years. The TE revolution anyone?

    Bingo.... that hit the nail on the head.

    I'm sorry...what? First it was 1998 (not that that matters much) but I think it had more to do with him wanting a Heisman and a national championship at Tennessee than his ego being stroked for the # 1 pick.

    Apparently a writer by the name of Jeff Howe thinks so. I don't see it either.

    If you also count the two SBs that Ryan said he would have had if he were coaching the Chargers, his total could be raised up to four.

    about as hilarious as the million dollars he outright stile from a dying Leon Hess. Sorry, he may be a great head coach, but he is a despicable human being, a cheat (professional cheating as well as martial cheating), a liar and a thief.

    I couldn't disagree more! It's Brady not Belicheat! Give Brady 4 or 5 games with quality receivers and he starts to gel just like this year and every other year he has limited weapons. He reads defenses and he scores lots of points! That's why they win every year not because they are coached well. When Brady is gone they will lose one of the best ever at QB and it will show very quickly.

    No it's not and No he isn't.

    He's nothing without cheating at extreme lengths. It's a fact. Wash your vagina and move along.

    That Manning decision kind of flies under the radar of sore spots in Jets history. I understand that the Jets had a lot of money already tied with O'Donnell, which I believe was why he didn't feel comfortable committing to Manning. Then he ending up trading down from the 1st pick, because Jumbo Elliott also had a huge contract, and Parcells didn't want to draft Orlando Pace #1.

    Totally agree. He thought of the Jets as this dirty organization but had no issue taking Leon Hess' "dirty" million.

    you are a bit of a tooool; as we went to the playoffs 01-02-04-06. Not sure I understand your point.

    I think you are wrong; it was DOLAN vs JOHNSON on the big stage; fighting it out for the Jets. No way BB made his decision based on who the owner was, as it looked like Dolan from the time Hess put the team up for sale.

    Can we mark that right here, please? The owner was unknown.

    Spare me.
    That was part of the settlement/ draft choice switch- that obligation was dismissed and forgiven by the jets.

    Correct, BB knew he did not have the personality that a new owner of a NY team would want fronting his franchise. After being let go when the browns moved to Balt, he thought of getting let go twice in that short of a timeframe would have killed future opportunities.
