First of all, please excuse the longest and most passionate post I have made as a 5-year member of this message board....... We all know the expression (and most of us believe in it): "In BB we trust." It has been a fail-safe mentality and I, for one, will never doubt his decisions. He has his unseen and obvious strengths... as well as weaknesses, to his mentality of coaching. Most complain about his drafting of CB's, S's and WR's, and I agree for the most part. Another weakness I see, at least from my point of view, is that he under-utilizes his D-coordinators/over-coaches the D. Since Crennel, I haven't seen a defensive coach under him that can significantly improve the defense as well as, say, Scar can improve the O-line or what McDaniels did to the O in 2007. OTOH, I see him as a coach that understands that his coaching has to develop and evolve as the times change, and this has led to possibly the most successful run of a franchise in the history of the NFL: his (and Crennel's) 3-4 caused a change in the way defenses were executed. But, when so many teams saw his success, they changed to a 3-4 scheme, and Belichick reacted by switching to a new "hybrid" that allowed the use of 4-3 DT/DE/LB, and in the end, made it easier to insert more available players into the current line-up. The coaches that I have witnessed in my lifetime that have great success (Walsh/Parcells/(yes, Levy)/JJohnson/Shanahan), could only hold on to "it" for so long, but BB has been consistently beating the crap out of the league for 13 years. This is where his ingenuity shines. But this is also where I have the question as to what he is missing for the future...... Despite what happens with Brady's career, I have the feeling that BB will make sure this franchise will be successful for another decade. And, when he leaves, he will leave a young team with a bunch of draft picks. It is such a broad subject, but I think BB holds more power in his pinky finger than, say, Mike Wallace, Talib, or any other FA has on the field. What I'm saying is that he is quite possibly the most fascinating man to ever grace the NFL (despite what Goodell thinks of himself). So, if you were his sports psychologist, what would you tell him? From his failed Lynch/Tank LB/S hybrid to the great decision to line Wilfork outside at DE and the sustained element of the elephant position (McGinest/AD, I know/Ninkovich/and VERY soon to be Hightower), and his constant and increasing influx of young players, what are his unseen weaknesses and strengths? So forget which FA's will win the SB for us. As if he were reading this, what tweaks to his success does BB have to make?
