    Reading some article in ESPN site an in other forum, they said as a rumour that this will be Bellichik's last season as a Patriot.

    Please anyone answer me if this rumour is true.

    The team and BB supposedly have mutual options for three years after 2007, according to Adam Schefter of the NFL Network. Basically, any year BB chooses to walk he can. No reason to panic.:)

    Mr Kraft will ensure that BB gets paid whatever is needed to keep him here. There are no doubts.

    Kraft and BB have one of the best relationships amongst coach and owner BB is also the GM and Kraft realizes that to lose BB would mean a complete overhaul in the front office as well as the coaching staff. In short, to lose BB would mean the upheaval of the franchise.

    It is common sense. Does Kraft want more SB rings? What is the best way to get them? BB. They have always had a great relationship, and Kraft is not stupid. He wants to win.

    Welcome to the board. I see from your join date you have just registered. Some advice from a veteran: it's a good idea to use the Search function to see if something has already been discussed before starting a new thread - that will help avoid getting reactions like "Good Lord, not again. Please, not again."

    No Jersey Selected

    My choice for HC of the NEP is Sean Payton, but he's not going anywhere for a couple of more years, so BB needs to stick around for a couple of more years.

    It might be his last year and it might not be. We don't know and neither does ESPN.

    If he leaves, I think he will probably retire, but I really hope he stays... I like him for our coach, and just can't seem to see another coach coaching the Pats...

    I believe BB barring unforseen health issues will coach another 10 years, because he loves it and he is possibly the best at what he does in the history of the profession. Gifted people in every profession often find it almost impossible to walk away. It is like surrendering your soul. But, if the unforseen and unexpected should happen, as an off-season exercise here are my current preferences for future coaching candidates of the NEP:

    Brian Schottenheimer: May be ready for the move after 1 more year of seasoning. Seems to have taken the "Marty-Ball" mockery to heart and decided to go his own way, to his credit, with some inventive and unorthodox offensive coaching.
    John Fox: Possibly on the outs in Carolina. A defensive ball-buster with the charisma to boot. The closest thing to a Parcells clone currently at work in the NFL.
    Rob/Rex Ryan: Defense is the quickest way to contention, and these two have been trained by some of the greatest defensive minds in football history. They are a bit iconoclastic, but I have no problem with that, provided they demonstrate the necessary organizational skills and maturity in interviews.
    Gruden: Gruden's problem has been impatience, which has led to erratic talent evaluation. A more mature Gruden, chastened by experience, assisted by an ace talent evaluator like Pioli and a quality veteran QB will rarely be outcoached. The difference in the quality of coaching staff between TB and SF to my eyes was on display in the senior bowl. Gruden's staff ran a tight, efficient, well conceived practice for a motley crew of college seniors with the North Squad, while the SF staff ambled through a comparatively disorganized mess of drills and managed to have the South offense completely unprepared to play the actual game (good luck, Norv). Gruden in the right situation, chastened by some failure and armed with strong personnel people will beat 90% of his counterparts in a 6 month long game of chess.

    My choice would be Art Shell, or maybe Al Groh.

    Funny, those were my picks for the new HC of the JEST, too. ;)

    I would have to venture that since Brady's contract isn't up until 2010, that Mr. Kraft will give Bill an extension from 2008 to 2010, thusly ensuring that both will finish here, then renegotiate, or retire, whatever happens I honestly don't see Bill going elsewhere...Just my 2 cents.

    PD

    I think it's a cry for help.
