    Bill Plaschke, LA Times columnist and Around the Horn commentator, called BB a jerk and said, "His players don't really like him." Plaschke lays all of our success on Brady's shoulders. I swear I just heard this. Was anybody else watching?

    Ohh but he said he was at San Diego and saw it first hand. Plaschke must be right. Let's email him and and get more details. I want to hear more about the jerk, BB, from an expert like Plaschke.

    They may hate him (right now). He drives them hard makes them work until they get it right.

    Think of that teacher you had in school that was always the hardest one you had. You hated them while you were their student but once you were out of the their 5-10 years you grew to appreciate the person.

    They say alot of Parcells' ex-Giants hated him too when they were playing for him but have grown to respect them and as can be seen alot of them follow him from team to team.

    I think "hate" is too strong a word, but I think something like this is probably true. Belichick is not supposed to be friends with these guys, he's the head coach. They may not have warm and fuzzy feelings for him, but I can guarantee you they respect him.

    This might already have been posted, but here was the SI players poll a few weeks back on which coaches were the hardest/easiest on their players.

    Hardest:
    Bill Parcells, Cowboys.....34%
    Tom Coughlin, Giants.....30%
    Nick Saban, Dolphins.....11%
    Bill Belichick, Patriots.....9%
    Marty Schottenheimer, Chiefs.....2%
    Bill Cowher, Steelers.....2%
    Jon Gruden, Bucs.....2%
    Rod Marinelli, Lions.....2%
    Eric Mangini, Jets.....2%
    John Fox, Panthers.....1%

    Easiest:
    Tony Dungy, Colts.....28%
    Herm Edwards, Chiefs.....13%
    Brian Billick, Ravens.....11%
    Dennis Green, Cardinals.....6%
    Mike Shanahan, Broncos.....6%
    Jim Mora Jr., Falcons.....4%
    Lovie Smith, Bears.....3%
    Dick Jauron, Bills.....3%
    Jon Gruden, Bucs.....2%
    Andy Reid, Eagles.....2%

    In one of Brady's recent pressers, he said of BB, 'There's no coach I'd rather play for."

    Sounds like he haaaaates him.:rolleyes:

    Tom Jackson said the same thing whenever this team got shut out the week before, just lost one of their perceived leaders, and had only won one SB. Fast forward three and a half years later, add two more SB's to the mix with the team deep into the playoffs once again, and we have the same false statements coming from a mouth at the same network.

    Can he read the players' minds all the way from his comfy seat in the press box? We need more details. I've already politely asked him to explain through email.

    I think to be a great coach at the pro level, you have to have your players hate you a little bit. Why is that a bad thing? You hate and fear your coach, you many times play harder because you don't want to be in the doghouse.

    Everyone on the Pats loved Pete Carroll and Dick McPherson when they coached. What did that get us? The team was probably never more out of control then they were under their reigns.

    You go back in time and you would find out players hated Lombardi, Halas, and other Hall of Fame coaches. They still respected the hell out of them though. These coaches got the most out of these players. That's the way I see Belichick.

    Brady said it best. He said that if a player wants the love and praise of his coach, don't come to the Patriots. But if you want to win, this is the team you want to play for.

    Has any Pat ever came out and said anything to suggest they don't like him personally? I don't think so. Usually it's just the opposite. Ask Brady.

    Did Plaschke say all that too? I caught it at the end where he declared that Pats don't really like The Jerk aka BB.

    It doesn't matter if the players like BB, all that matters is that they respect him and that the team produces victories.

    Some of these pundits need to do a little time in the military!

    yup...not the deion branch thing of course..thats what i added .
    He said BB is jerk. his players dont like him...he yells and screams at his players Brady acts as his ambassador which he didnt have in cleveland and failed. This tom brady's team not belichick
    Woody paige of all people sounded the most sane. Said its BB not brady..he has defenses which allow only 17 pts so brady is helped that way, he replaces players consistently etc etc

    It may be true that the players don't love BB like how the Chiefs love Herman Edwards. But how does a columnist for a Los Angeles paper know the mindset of New England players when no one else can get a pulse on it?

    as i said there was another show on ESPN which discussed "is brady overrated?"
    go figure
    i think its neither brady or belichick . its marquise hill...his bench presence gives incentive for BB and brady to work harder...

    Hey, give the guy a break... He's from LA where they have no football. So what's a football columnist to do in LA? He's put his journalist degree to the test and created a story that sounded good (to him).

    Tony Dungy gettin all the love! how nice is that. Explain this to me though. Why was Schottenheimer's job on the line and Dungy's isnt? I find it odd that all of Schottenheimer's losses were his hurdles to overcome but the Colts hurdles belong to Peyton.

    Wait! Where does Art Shell fall in the overall scheme of things?

    (no knock on Shell - he deserved a much, much better fate!)
