    Anyone saw this ? Armen Ketiyan interviewed BB and was probably the most relaxed and easy and one of the better interviews he has done.
    after the interview cowher said he learnt a lot from BB during the 21 game streak how he handled his team with focus. thought that was a great compliment.

    BB is so smart. He answers everything perfectly without even having to think about it. i mean..the answers are perfect in term of..what he wants to do. not be mean, not give out some information, praise people. they are quick and perfect. hes a very well spoken man clearly

    some think BB is an *******, seems like a mean guy who doesnt have friends but i think hes just so focused on football that everything else doesnt matter. thats why players love him..they dont have to worry about the coach..they know hes always prepared and focused.

    off the field i would imagine BB is more relaxed, etc when he doesnt have the focus on winning the next game on his mind. Credit to our players as well understanding if you wanna get your stats here and gain individual fame, you wont last. You play your role, the roles you play win games as a team. We have playmakers, solid players and it doesnt matter if you get 10 + sacks..or if you get 1000 yards rushing or receiving. You play by the gameplan and theres new twist every week. There is no having fun besides the fun of winning games. You win a game, celebrate that night and next day, you forget about it and your 0-0 again. You celebrate the day you win the big 1 and reflect upon the games you've won.

    He was asked about the "big three events", those being the camera thing, his relationship with Mangini and the perfect season (I think this was the third, my memory stinks). He very politely dodged all three and said maybe sometime later would be the time and place to discuss them.

    He was asked if he thinks about his Dad a lot during this season and he responded yes and that he was sure his Dad had a good view from the 50.

    They showed a clip of them in the library in his home and all the books on football. Questioned on whether he thought he belonged in the same crowd as some of the old greats. Answered no, this isn't the time to be thinking of those things...maybe much later on would be the time to reflect on those things.

    Was read quotes out of his book, things like, doesn't care what others think, isn't out to please others (implication, media), things like that. Handled these very well saying they're not all true.

    Very well done interview. Wasn't antagonistic at all, just open questions and well delivered answers.

    I'm sure I've missed a few things someone else could fill in.

    Seemed like Armen came in all sersious and with the single purpose of cracking the uncrackable coach BB, and yes, BB was so relaxed that it almost seemed strange. When BB said a couple of times that certain topics were a conversation for another day, that ruined this a tad. Nonetheless, BB turned the table on Armen in this interview.

    Regarding Randy Moss he said- I love Randy Moss. I think he is smartest receiver I have ever coached. He always comes back to the quarterback with suggestions on what he is seeing and how to alter the attack and 90% of the time he is right.
    He also said it is just a group of players that only worry about what they can do to help the team and it is a privilege to work with them.

    i think it shows more about how much armen is in the trust circle of BB where he can relax and answer questions. most interviewers bb just clams up because he knows they are going to ask stupid things.

    I definitely got the sense from the Tom Curran interview that BB plans to give an interview where he gives some answers on spygate at the end of the year.

    I think so too. I think the reason he is not talking about it during the season is that it is likely to be at least a couple of weeks of distraction that this team can not afford to have.

    This is probably EXACTLY what Torry Holt doesn't like about Scott Linehan. He's been told on several occasions (according to PFT, I know...but it makes sense), "You Play, I'll Coach!".

    Armen and BB go back to the Giants days. Rumor is he and BB have spent some fishing time together on Nantucket.

    The other night on NFL network, there was a brief part of this, I think it was this interview.. afterwards that idiot Marshall Faulk said something to the effect that he could not wait for it, as he wants to find out about BB.. what a tool.

    OTOH, if BB trusts the interviewer and the interviewer does not aske stupid questions he is a pretty good at it.. kinda like when he is on the big show, lots of stuff he does not want to answer.. but ask him a football question and he will run with it.
