    I know that sounds crazy but when a coach leads a team to three super bowl titles, four appearances and an infinite amount of division crowns he should be questioned. Letting go of Seymour and drafting that JAG Solder is unheard of. Randy Moss being cut only lead to a pathetic 14-2 record with a first ever unanimous MVP. But the worst mistake of all may be cutting Bodden who was the leader for his thirty second ranked pass defense. Bodden's level of play could only be matched by Wilfork. I say fire him before the season even ends as it is already over.:)

    No one is suggesting he gets fired. BB is not God and therefore his moves can be questioned. I'm sure he questions some of his moves too.

    If we all agree with everything BB does then this forum would be pretty pointless. Don't you think??

    When you do not know the outcome of his latest move there isn't a need to question.

    Definitely don't want Belichick the coach fired, to suggest he should be fired is beyond idiotic. That being said some of his personnel decisions are questionable to say the least.

    My Firefox browser literally just crashed when I opened this thread. I restarted Firefox and here I am to tell you that you are on crack. I'm drunk right now and I have more sense than you right now. This is so sad. Yes Belichick may make mistakes here and there but when he cuts someone you better damn well believe it's for a good reason. If he cuts Bodden then Bodden is done. He won't have success anywhere else mark my words.

    Yeah you bring up Randy Moss. I thought he was crazy to cut him last year but look at Randy now. He is done. Belichick knows what the hell he is doing. I know it's shocking that he would cut a "great CB" and you're having a knee jerk reaction but he always does what is best for the team. You'll see.

    Does that mean I'm happy with the defense? No. But I'll always trust Bill to do what's best for the team . . . . . . unless it's draft day and he still refuses to draft a pass rushing outside linebacker ;)

    i think your head coach knows what he's doing as far as winning the division

    it seems after that goal gets accomplished the rest falls apart lately

    he certainly always puts his players in position to win at least , even in most playoff games

    seems like he should stick to coaching though

    On a serious note though,we do need some help on getting the right Free Agents to play here as well as getting some better insight at WR and the secondary when it comes to the draft in those positions which is a weak spot.

    Is there a brilliant football guy OFF the field like Bill is ON the field?

    Get Belichick and that guy together and this team will demolish the competition.

    I defiantly think his time has come :)
    I mean BB is getting old, and he probably naps a lot. He probably doesn't even know he let Bodden go. Im sure he just mumbled " Lets get bold and go", but the staff didn't understand him.

    sure he has

    2004 AFC Championship
    2003 AFC Championship
    2001 AFC Championship

    but even John Wayne knew when to hang it up and made the movie The Shootist". Eeer..Not sure where Im going with that.

    I say BB just wins to much, which creates despair and depression. I mean how bad did you guys feel when you lost the SB and didn't completely the 19-0 perfect season. We in New Orleans care for your fans to much to have you feel that way again.

    A better substitute would be Tony Sparano. He should be looking for a job really soon, and you can comfortably sit on the couch and not expect to much, and not be disappointed.

    Not that Im saying to bring him to the Vet and have him put down right now. No let the old guy have fun winning games and get you to the playoffs again, then when you make the SB again, and only if we are in it, because we care.

    quietly take him to another stadium and have him put down. Hire Sparano, sit back and have a comfortable thought free SB, with out the worry or expectations. After all Im sure your fans know football better than him at this point, he's clearly doing crazy things that make no sense :)

    Once Tony Sparano becomes officially available, I'm all for firing Belichick and hiring Sparano.

    But seriously, if Belichick quit tomorrow who would you want to the Patriots to hire as the new HC?

    Josh McDaniels?
    Eric Mangini?
    Bill Cowher?
    Dante Scarnecchia?

    Tony Sparano, bleep him.
    Let's aim high and go for Coach Cadwell.
    He might not get fired due to many issues, but we have the draft picks to pry him away.
    Let's do it and run this bozo out.

    I know you are being sarcastic and joking, but threads like these only go bad. Half the people take you seriously, the other half don't care if you are serious or not and use it to bash Belichick.

    BB the coach? No way in hell! BB the GM, probably. Being a GM is a full-time job, I don't see how you're going to do that, and be a coach, and do them both well. BB has a very difficult time delegating and I think that winds up hurting the team.

    and they call me chicken little... Belichick does deservere critizim for the last 5 years of poor drafts, that cause maybee 3 chances at a title, and some of his personal decisions are questionable ,but he has hit on some as well... this team should only have belichick and brady together no one else...

    This thread is about as overdue as a blizzard in October...

    Pats fans have become so entitled,we need a new leadership that will stamp out the ugly aura of entitlement. Someone like Bill Polian comes to mind. He had the good sense to limit Indianapolis fans level of expectation to one superbowl in a decade and just for good measure he made sure he didn't have a competent backup QB available to run a system he built specifically to be run by a GOAT. Not to mention he began to systematically tank his first round draft picks immediately after winning that one ring and replaced his bestselling HC with an incompetent understudy to insure that when Peyton's neck bolts loostened they would be unable to play on defense or ST so he could remind all the message board geniuses in his fan base what things were like in Indy before he came along and saved them.

    We should seriously consider trading Brady to Seattle after the season too. They need a QB and Seattle is on the same coast as his LA mansion. We could ask for Pete Carroll as compensation. This is the guy who developed Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart. Think what he could do with Mallett. Pete could lead this franchise into a new era with top 5 draft picks to look forward to every season that we could use to draft overhyped pass rushers and guys to stretch the field while still leaving plenty of legitimate criticism to be dished out in message board land. And since Welker and Branch are UFA that money could be spent to reunite TO with Ocho and we could even afford to bring Randy back before it's too late!!! Hell, we could even trade Solder (and Connelly for that matter) for Big Sey and McCourty for 'Sante (and throw in GlassIDowling if we had to because Andy Reid plays hardball) and return to our glory days...

    How reinvigorating would it be to once again head into a season with minimal expectations and the liklihood of none them even being met.

    If you voted no, your just an unrealistic "fanboy". Screw this "In Bill we trust" crap. Bodden was the engine that made this team go, without him, we're gonna by pushing losses to rival Miami and Indy the rest of the way.

    ....... and WTF Ras I? How dare you get hurt. You play for the Patriots. We don't get hurt here, unless you want to risk having multiple "glass" threads started in your honor.

    I'm so disgusted. I need to pick a real team to cheer for..... Perhaps the JETS? Now that Rex Ryan really has his sh!t on tight. Yeah, that it. ;)

    5 years of poor drafts?? HUH? I guess that they've changed the definition of "POOR".. Or maybe you don't know what the word means.. Not sure which..

    Chung, Edelman, McCourty, Gronkowski, Vollmer, Hernandez, Solder, Mayo, Ridley, Mesko, Spikes, Pryor, Slater, Meriweather. That list can grow based on Cannon, Welch, Deaderick, Brace, Cunningham, Carter, Mallett and Vereen.

    BTW, The 2007 draft was considered a failure by most teams because of the lack of talent available.
