    Sounds pretty relaxed, even complaining about how the officials do certain things (would like them to explain things because coaches cannot hear what they announce over the mics).

    I'm listening. He sounds very relaxed and in a good mood. He loves to answer questions when its about football. However about off the field issues? Forget it.

    Best comment was when somebody asked if Defensive signals are changed up every week...

    "They are when we're giving them."

    Yeah, he kind of had that "you'd have to be an idiot not to" chuckle in his voice when he said it too.

    Re: bellichick on weei right now

    He didn't complain about the officials. He went out of his way to praise the officials and say how he appreciated how Ed "biceps" hochuli keeps control of a game and doesn't lose control. What he was saying is that when an NFL official makes an announcement he can't hear that because of the crowd noise. He said the there have been a couple times where he was upset on the sidelines while in NE, and they are all related to this...not being able to know what's going on in the game.

    I must say I look forward to this interview every week....and the big show does a great job with it!

    Agreed. He is so much more comfortable talking to the Big Show guys. Ask him good questions and you'll get a very good discussion out of him.

    Hochuli is great. You could tell, though, that as soon as he made his announcement last night after picking up the holding flag -- "there is no penalty on the play, the defender was just overwhelemed" or something -- that he wished he didn't say it.

    maybe complain wasn't the right word (semantics) but he did talk about how he wished they would explain things to coaches more clearly

    A flag was thrown in an apparent hold against a Charger player (apparent at the time with a brief showing of it). The look on BB's face after hearing that explanation was priceless. Hochuli explained to us that it wasn't holding, the defender was simply over powered lol

    Re: bellichick on weei right now

    There was a flag that looked to be holding on San Diego. He came on the mic and said, "There is no flag on the play. There was no holding, the defender was just overpowered."

    It was pretty damn funny.

    I think the interview yesterday on the Big Show yesterday was one of the best they have done.

    They initially asked BB about BB inviting Lenny Clarke into the locker room to lighten things up and it turned into a roast of BB. BB was laughing...saying he loved Lenny Clarke. BB said Junior gave an incredibley inspiring speech to the team. Yesterday...I believe it was Wilfork, said Junior has a career in motivational speaking when he is done with football.

    They then went on to discuss using signals...etc etc...Highlight line was BB saying that if you are well prepared you don't need to steal signals.

    This interview is a must listen.

    Just listened to it. Very funny quip by Fred Smerlis and corresponding response by BB.

    BB was talking about how when the refs announce a call, he can't ever hear them. He hears the crowd noise, but doesn't hear what we hear at home.

    Smerlis suggested that he should steal the refs signals, and Bellichick said "their facing the wrong way Fred". It was very funny.

    Perhaps he resists the league's strategic "guidance"
    as to who it would be good to have win.

    LOL! That is truly a great quip by BB.

    More amazing is that Smerlis suggested that in light of the existing sitution. Goes to show that BB does have a great relationship with a select few (and that too in the media! gasp!!) who can joke about this in public.

    The Brady interview on D&C is worth listening to also. He said something like they aren't going to go around talking after a big win like other classless players would. I took that as Merriman and The Self Proclaimed Classiest Player in the Leegue.

    Re: bellichick on weei right now

    He worked the first round.

    There is a rumor floating around that he asked that if he was in line for the super bowl that he be deferred for a year, because he really wants to call the game in his home town this year. Who knows if true. There are rules on a ref's ability to call games in the championship games or super bowl two years in a row.

    If he ends up calling the game in Arizona this year, you'll have your answer why he wasn't in the later rounds last year.
