I did, thought that was pretty clear from my post. Sorry it never dawned on you. But anyway you had that record wrong.


Since Brady was named starter Belichick is 23-9 without Brady.

In 2008 Brady started 1 game and was injured and the Patriots went 11-5

In 2016 Brady was suspended the first 4 games and the Patriots were 4-0 and finished 12-4.

Those are the facts.

We can learn that you don't change a classic looking uniform just because other teams are doing it.  Those unis with the white helmet and Pat the Patriot on the sides were awesome, then they changed to the crappy USFL look, which still looks crappy.

 

Don't mess with a great thing!

They didn't lose to the Bills in week 4 of 2016? They didn't finish 14-2?

The issue was Belichicks record with and without Brady.

23-9 is what is listed in three different sites I looked at.

Now if you care to look at yourself maybe you would quit arguing?

They went 3-1 during Bradys' suspension, not 4-0.

 

And they ended up 14-2, not 12-4.

 

What's the opposite of facts?

I guess the site I looked at was wrong. So I was wrong.

That still don't change what Belichick's record with and without Brady does it? That was the original jest of what was said.

Yeah, I agree that Belichick is a great coach and will probably keep winning 10+ games and make the playoffs even after Brady retires.

More than likely. 

The thing is the QBs get all the praise when everything any team does is on the backs of the players on that team. 

Belichick has the system and the knowledge to find the players who fit that system.

With that said calling any player the GOAT is opinions but those players mentioned couldn't win one game without a great team around them.

All of the players put into that discussion have one thing in common. They were all very talented but it took a team to bring out that greatness.

I honestly thought they would get to the divisional playoff round at best. Their offense was stinking it up. Defense was mediocer. Tight end looked like he was done. Deep threat receiver got suspended. I think the Texans handing them the #2 seed was huge. That afforded them a bye. They looked like an entirely different team in the postseason. And ultimately that's when it matters most.

To all who post NE cheats to get to and win the SB there is one way to end your misery, beat them on the field of play. Until that happens keep your crying towels next to you. Since they don't win every game and every SB beating them should not be that hard should it?

And the creepiest part is Kraft considers Brady his son.

Well, maybe Brady destroyed his cellphone because he had nude photos of Kraft on it.

Well yea, he did it with Matt Cassel, so the proof is definitely there. I'm not saying Brady is bad; just mediocre. Belichick could turn Jay Cutler into a legend and we'd all be singing how handsome Cutler is.

Being in the AFC east helps.

Linemen that hold helps. It amazes me how you can have all pros across the line on D and still never get to him.

Mug receivers on D.

 

Not making excuses, but they get away with a lot, but I'd do the same if it's never called.

This right here - being in a crappy division, most years they host all their playoff games in Foxborough. (this year..darn you Dee Ford)

A team is more than a star or two...

 

 

Defensively, game planning and in game adjustments, there are none better IMO.

 

 

Maybe, they always push the envelope.  But hard proof is hard to come by or destroyed by the NFL.

 

 

They have a system.  Their coaches adhere and teach it.  Belichick is increible at spotting certain players/traits that 'fit'. The players learn their specific roles, they learn it inside and out.  Many players are lower talent, quite average athletes (or cast offs) that have a chip on their shoulder and plain outwork everyone else.

 

Remember the Pats mantra... "Do your job!"

 

 

The others supporting the 'stars' play nearly as well as them through hard work.

 

 

 

Belichick helps Brady because of the Pats defense effectiveness. Bill doesn't handle the offense. Charlie Weis (and then afterwards, Josh McDaniels) was much more involved in Brady becoming much more than Alex Smith. 

 

If they truly have a "system" why then the gazillion ex-coordinators who were hired as HC for other teams Failed to install Belichek's system and Flopped?

Joe Thomas was on ESPN Radio and compared the Patriots' coaching philosophies and "system" to the Chinese educational system. His point was, "the Chinese have operated for the longest time copying what the western powers had as ideas, so Belichick's coaches are taught certain defined parameters and instructed very well to coach within those parameters" but once they leave, they do not have the creativity when stressed outside those parameters. The ability to adapt, innovate and improvize still stays with Belichick (have to add, Josh McDaniels has been a big part of it too).

 

However, I think Joe Thomas undersold the ability of the Chinese, that is a topic for another discussion. :)

Lol, well if anyone believes what Joe Thomas said I sure hope they don't rush to buy a Bridge from him if he says he has one to sell.haha

Could be multiple reasons, starting with the makeup of the team that hired them (not similar to what the Pats have in any / most facet) and the lack of time to teach/train all of the ssistant coaches the system so they can teach/coach the players.

 

OTOH, is not the ex-Pat's duo of Bill O'Brien and Romeo Crennel becoming somewhat successful in Houston?  And they certainly have had to place their own spin on things. There is only one BB.

    • Was just listening to Dan Dakich.  He brought up the idea that I did earlier.  That this entire ankle/leg issue could be a made up thing just as a way out.   Remember, he was fine after the season ended.  Zero mention of a leg issue . Then he went to Europe, got married, and came back with a 'calf'.    Huh?   Did he stumble and hurt himself walking to the altar?   And everyone who has seen him train this year?  Says he looks fine.  No sign of an injury.  Doctors couldn't figure it out.  Why?  No injury?     Went through those drills last week, looked great, and then he says that he thought it might be his last time on the Lucas Oil stadium field.   Makes zero sense.  Other than this has been in his mind for quite a while.
    • It's not nearly as bad, or as big of deal as you are making it out to be. Even in the stories I have seen and read today it's not getting that much attention.  The Colts not going after the money they could get back is what's getting the press.    The booing won't have any effect on FAs; If anything, the absence of an elite QB will be a bigger issue when it comes to attracting FAs.        
    • Yeah...I shouldn't have said active. I meant games he has appeared in.   But if you just look at active games...he will have played in more than half...which is still pretty incredible for a guy drafted into the situation he was. 
    • I do agree with Jimmy our owner too. Andrew isn't really being selfish when you remember all the millions of dollars he leaving on the table.   If you're heart's not in the game anymore because your body keeps betraying you, I could see why turning the page to something else seems appealing to Luck. You watch his press conference & can't help but feel for the guy & what he's endured since he first got here in 2012. He raves about Mathis, Wayne, Hilton, Adam V. The guy doesn't have a malicious bone in his body man. He loves INDY & her diehard fans. The guy is genuinely broken up emotionally over this decision man. He didn't reach it lightly at all.    The funny thing about rage & anger is this: It's only a burden to those who carry it & refuse to release it & let it go over time. Fans have a right to be upset just remember that no one was hoodwinked, swindled, or lied to here. The situation was abrupt, unexpected, even awkward perhaps, but I honestly don't think this news was withheld on purpose by anybody inside the Colts organization. Life teaches us to adapt all the time. The only constant is change & our organization will handle this change with professionalism, dignity, & a sense of renewed purpose like we always do. 
    • I am pretty sure he was active for all 16 games plus two playoff games last year.
