    Very unbelichick like saying Anthony Smith was not the greatest Safety they have ever played against.

    While this is true,I think we know that Belichick is RARILY critical of what someone says in the media or an opposing player and if he says anything about another player its usually positive.

    Its very obvious to me after hearing his comments that BB is secretly getting sick and tired of all the BS and big mouths that have jumped on his team who is playing as well as any team in NFL history and I am sure he would just love to hear nothing at all about the team other than on the field anymore.

    Any human being can take so much before he/she explodes and I think Belichick's patience and quiet demeanor are getting shorter as the season gets longer as evidenced by his shocking comment of Smith.

    Well, he did call out Freddie Mitchell pretty good, so BB can talk trash, but I guess I agree that it might've been a little anti-BB. He could've just as easily said "we don't worry about that stuff [Smith's comments]."

    It felt to me like he (and Tom when he was jarring at Smith) were really going to bat for Moss and Welker, who Smith had called out as not being as good as the Bengals wideouts.

    I don't buy it. I think his demeanor remains consistent. He'll call out other team's jerkoffs every now and then (after the Pats destroy the guy!). I recall after SB39, BB called WR Freddie Mitchell "just awful"! (which he was!) :)

    Brady said something on the radio this morning along the lines of, when it's a Joey Porter or a Troy Polamalu or somebody it's one thing, but everybody was basically left wondering who the hell Anthony Smith even is. Brady said he took offense to a nobody (my words, not his) saying something just to make sure they got on sports center.

    so, coupled with BB's uncharacteristic response to Freddie Mitchel and his response now to Anthony Smith, i think we can assume they don't particularly have issues with established guys talking a little smack (although they will certainly use it for motivation) but if you are some scrub who hasn't paid his dues yet, you best just keep your mouth shut.

    Thats true but that was at the END of the season and the pressure was off and he felt secure enough to say it then

    This is the MIDDLE of the season so its a bit different per say.

    It seemed in-character to me. BB seems to have some policy that if you go babbling to the media and you deserve to be ripped (i.e. you can't back it up), he'll rip you. Otherwise it's mouth-shut.
