    In the presser last hour at Gillette....BB sounded very ominous via tweets from Pats reporters - these from @RapSheet:

    Could BB be thinking about hanging it up here? Is this as surprising and ridiculous as I think it is??

    I don't think it means anything...but some fans might just get what they have been hoping for.

    He also talked about how the combine was in 2 and a half weeks. I think that says something about how this organization and BB's mind work.

    The man is fresh off a s.b loss. I wouldn't look too much into it.

    I wouldn't be shocked to see BB or even Brady retire this offseason. I think this loss broke them. Listening to Rodney yesterday say how much SB42 haunted him and caused him to consider retirement, I wouldn't be shocked.

    Any fans hoping for BB to walk should go be fans of another team.

    I bet if you go back every year he says about the same thing. I thought I was paranoid.

    I think Rap is 1 and 1A with Bedard as far as Pats reporters, and that's why coming from him I think it holds a little more weight. I don't really picture him trying to make a story out of a non-story, that's all.

    Oh I agree. That comment was for all those so called fans who have said that the game has passed him by and it's time to move on.

    BB and Brady are not retiring. I loved Harrison but he was constantly injured so I am sure that was also a huge part. BB can still coach and Brady can still play at a high level.

    Also like someone said: BB is obviously upset and the last thing he wants to talk about is last nights game.

    I think this one hurts a lot more than SB42. They literally had it in their hands and gave it away despite everything that happened in the first 30 minutes of spotting the Giants 9 points.

    I think this one is more to do with evaluating the staff and seeing if they can be replaced by better coaches, old coaches (Pepper) young coaches (Patricia) etc...

    Yeah, this is just how BB and Brady would want to go out.

    A real dream scenario.:rolleyes:

    Didn't Brady say he'd rather get to the SB and lose than not get there at all?

    ^^ agreed.

    I can't see him walking away now. We get into "brady's lost a step" talk, then maybe. IMO the two are tied together, and will go out together.

    BB is smart he knows how hard it is to get to the SB and he's going to be 60 in a few months him and Brady are going to go out at same time and that 2 or 3 years at best

    BB is alot closer to this game than the sunny day fans who post here just occasionally and are bent out of shape at a loss.

    He is rebuilding another dynasty and is about a year away from completing that task.

    Give him a couple days to get the sour taste out of his mouth of that loss and geared up for the Combine and Draft Day.......

    In BB WE Trust :rocker:

    I think this (Belichick retiring) is far more speculative than the whole 'Brady body language' speculation from a while ago; remember those assumptions and conclusions? Sorry, but Rapoport and the fans that agree with him are reading way too much into his press conference responses than they should, in my opinion.

    Yeah, Patricia might not be feeling too secure at the moment. ...

    Actually, no, he hasn't sounded like that in the past. But I would also caution into reading a whole lot into it.

    I think it's a mix of the hangover and being proud of the team. He's constantly said how proud he is of this group of players and how happy he is that he's coaching them, how mentally tough they are, they do what's asked, etc.

    In Reiss' version BB mentions the combine in two weeks and that they're going to take some time to regroup and figure out the things they need to do and move forward. Combine in two weeks but he doesn't know what's going to happen in between.

    As for the coaches thing, that may have to do with BOB assembling a staff and possibly Romeo bringing people over.

    He's got a lot of pieces on this team he likes a lot. He'll be seriously competing with this group for a while.

    Just because I do not post here often does not mean I do not follow the team on a day-by-day basis... I just choose to use Twitter as my option of choice since it's also directly related into my job (radio personality).

    One should never say never, but frankly I can't imagine BB doing this to Bob Kraft, leaving the organization at this point in time.

    What I take from the "young coaches, old coaches" quote is, either he will promote Matt Patricia to DC since he said called the plays on the D a few weeks ago or he will bring someone as help on the D but not as DC.

    Possible he wants to finish his career living near his parents, wife and child in California? Sure he's also noticed that SF has the #1 defense in the NFL.

    Brady has said pretty consistently that he is a Patriot through and through.
