LOL, the memories... A little Wrong Borges anyone? And I quote (Boston Globe Nove 22, 2001):
"Bill Belichick walked the plank this week. Now Tom Brady will decide if he goes off the end of it or not...
The Patriots' personality-challenged coach created a quarterback controversy where none existed when he declared on his Monday radio show that Brady was the team's starting quarterback ''for the foreseeable future."... How those games go, and where Drew Bledsoe goes, will decide a lot of things for the New England Patriots ( By accident, a good call from Borges!!!!!). They'll also decide one thing for Bill Belichick. Whether the future is now or nonexistent for him, because there's no turning back. Some people learn from their mistakes. Others are doomed to repeat them. (Something this douchebag writer knows a lot about...) If you wonder which is Bill Belichick, go ask people in Cleveland if they've ever heard the story of the guy who benched Bernie Kosar for Todd Philcox?
The minute Belichick looked Bledsoe in the eye in his office and told him one thing and then did another he severed, probably irreparably, his relationship with the team's franchise player. Jimmy Johnson did the same thing with Troy Aikman in his rookie season, and it took him four years and several Super Bowls to repair the damage. ...Belichick will not be so lucky. He doesn't have Johnson's personality, which can be as jovial and charming as a snake oil salesman's. Worse, this Patriot team isn't going to win two Super Bowls any time soon.
Man, I never get tired of reading that last line...Wrong Borges. Wrong wrong wrong. Always.
I'm sorry. Alot of you blast Borges for being wrong all the time, and I will admit that he is pathetic. But, he was right on this one. "this Patriot team isn't going to win two Super Bowls any time soon" was right on the money. They won THREE!
The Patriots Upgrade With Signing of Revis Revis Island has now been established in the New England area. The New England Patriots made a big splash Wednesday night, signing All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis to a one-year, $12 million contract.
