Bill Belichick is respectful of most other people involved in football. Bill Belichick is particularly respectful of other coaches. If you doubt this, reread "Education of a Coach". The claim made by Prisco, Reiss, AND Rapoport that BB disrespected fellow coaches is pretty silly. The idea in the Prisco thread that he was dissing the league instead is an inspired one. Big Mouth Ryan's claim that BB was respecting him by benching Welker is actually pretty credible. I could say all that in rant form, but hopefully this version will suffice.
