    No Jersey Selected

    That would be one hell of a football mind. A defensive guru combined with a good offensive mind. It could be the perfect storm. :eek:

    And yes, that was an excellent film. Thanks for posting.

    And people question Brady when he says the team needs to really understand and learn from Belichick. The man's a Jedi when it comes to football. I seriously hope they freeze his brain and someday when he writes his memoirs who won't be buying it. BB's studied, analyzed, in some cases even obsessed over, by a few coaches in this league and his tree always commands attention.

    BB's not unlike Paul Brown but he's got the celebrity besides. BB's methods, thought process, etc has become and maybe always will be replicated or at least incorporated into a team's strategy.

    Brady's right.

    All clips we've seen before, just strung together. Still fun to watch, though.

    Tuna sure was an abusive arsehole. I don't blame BB wanting to get away from him.

    Great compilation video... how long until TC???

    Bilichick???

    It explains, quite well why this team did not go after Cromartie, Holmes or Tomlinson... it is not about talent.

    I think Tuna was committment-phobic for much of his life and had he not lucked into a staff with a talent like Belichick already there waiting for his shot I'm not sure Tuna would have any rings. I didn't realize until a while ago that Tuna agreed to become the DC of the Giants then backed out of football altogether then got tapped as HC material when he decided he did want in to the NFL... Belichick preceeded him in NY by a couple of seasons. He was the glue that brought that whole defense together around a talented but troubled LB and HC... He'd have finished what he started in Cleveland too if ownership and the media and the fans they incited against him of all people hadn't pulled the rug out from under that team announcing their departure in mid season.


    This is why he and Brady have such a symbionic relationship. Tommy gets it. Talent matters, but execution and brilliant strategy wins. Belichick always puts them in a position to win, provided they just do their jobs as instructed. Last year a lot of guys didn't do their jobs with any level of consistency. In 2001 a team full of role players and relative JAGS did starting in week 10 and as a result they totally unpredictably went 9-0 down the stretch. You don't have to have top tier talent at every position. You just need sufficiently talented football players who are committed to doing whatever it takes, including listening to their coaches and executing the game plan consistently. And that includes whether it makes sense to them or not (see Giants D being told let them run for their 100 yards and we'll win...).

    A lot of what Bill gameplans for is dependent on trust between he and the players and between the players and each other doing what they have been coached to do. It only takes one or two guys losing focus or effort or breaking discipline or freelancing and the whole thing starts to look like a cluster****... Guys weren't prepared for the Baltimore game last season, but it had nothing to do with Bill not providing them with sufficient information or coaching or a workable game plan. Just like they weren't prepared on the road and in 4th quarters. They simply didn't maintain focus or effort or execution in those situations. Bill won't put a player on the field if he doesn't think he can get the job done. Unfortunately that doesn't always guarantee the player will. But if a kid like Edleman can come in and perform as he did as a conversion project battling an injury, there really isn't any excuse for the rest of them.

    Hulu is geo-sensitive and won't let me watch it here (Canada). Yeah, I could screw about with proxies, but is this video on youtube or Vimeo or anything??

    anybody know how to get a still shot without copyright enfringement. I had a photo of Bill with arms in the air right after Rodney intercepted to seal the victory as my desktop. My computer crashed and I would love to get it again. thanks

    I, too, used to think that Parcells was some kind of master and Belichick was his apprentice. Then back in 2003, when the Pats beat down the Cowpokes 12-0, I said in the chat room, "Belichick has beaten Parcells, the student has become the teacher!" And then people told me that the two of them were really more contemporaries, and Parcells, for whatever reason, just got the HC gig first.

    As for the original topic, I haven't seen any of the In Their Own Words episodes run on NFL Network for quite some time, but maybe if you sent them an e-mail they'd look at airing them again.

    On a related note, the Drew Bledsoe episode has a funny continuity error - there's a sequence where they show Drew going back to pass, looking for an open man, then they cut to Parcells watching on the sideline, cut back to Drew throwing for a TD, and finally cut back to Parcells again. Problem is, anyone watching at all closely will see that the players on the field and the players on the sideline are wearing two different jersey styles - i.e., the clips are from two totally different games played in different seasons. :bricks:

    Just use the print screen button on your keyboard.

    This will copy an image of the screen and you can paste into paint or a better program and you can cut out the parts you dont want and save it as an image.

    Thanks, and I would if I could. I guess I wasn't clear. When my computer crashed, it was re imaged and I lost the desktop image. Now its just basic windows. I am looking for the picture of Bill with his arms in the air and the players around him going crazy. It is a great pic, I like it better than the gatorade pic with his dad. thanks.
