I get it. We all do. We all know the truth and get frustrated with the PC culture of talking players up to their potential.
But it works. If Belichick had talked about the "piece of crap" "immobile" "loser" 6th rounder that had to replace Bledsoe in 2001, Brady would probably have a completely different legacy. But Belichick is one of the best at talking to the media and saying the right things and avoiding saying the wrong things.
Head coaches are just playing their role. And unfortunately, they end up taking the blame for everything. @Jared Cisneros wants to blame Pagano for every shortcoming during his tenure in Indy, but you know what? Philly fans will do the same thing to Andy Reid for his tenure in Philly. He always had a great team, great talent, some of the greatest talent assembled in NFL history, but could never win the big one. Reid was close many times, but never achieved the ultimate goal. He was the Pagano of Philly. Then he goes to KC, and ends up EVENTUALLY winning the SB. Now he's talked about in the pantheon of great NFL head coaches. And he NEVER said anything about a single player even remotely close to what some of us say about our own players.
