I was poking around Wiki and noticed this in his Ast. coaching Bio. Assistant coach Prior to coaching the New York Jets, Mangini worked for the New England Patriots under Head Coach Bill Belichick, first as their defensive backs coach (2000-2004), and later as their defensive coordinator (2005). Before that Belichick gave him a job as an assistant in the Cleveland Browns organization (1995). Mangini was part of the Baltimore Ravens' inaugural staff in 1996, where he was a quality control/offensive assistant coach. From 1997-1999, he worked with the Jets as a defensive assistant/quality control coach. That was also when Belichick was assistant head coach/secondary coach. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Mangini Well, I got curious as to what a "Quality Control Coach" is and I came across this. "Landry also was the first to employ a coach for quality control. Ermal Allen would analyze game films and chart the tendencies of the opposition for the Cowboys in the 1970s. That gave Landry an edge in preparation, because he knew what to expect from his opponent based on down and distance. Now every NFL team has a quality-control coach, and most have two." http://www.dallasnews.com/s/dws/spe/2000/landryspecial/landryinnov.htm It kind of makes you wonder just how far back this REALLY goes. We already know Mangini had to be involved in taping with NE, but could he have been involved with it while with the Jets in his previos tenure. I'm sure this has been brought up before but I probably missed it. It's just unbeleivable what a rat-fink bastard he really is. PS-Sorry for the spygate rant. I know I'm going to get roasted by a few in here.
