    Eric Mangini hired by espn.

    PFT: Mangini lands his next job at ESPN | CSNNE.com

    I recall him being on-camera for them last year during the playoffs. As much as he is hated here I thought he did a pretty good job for them as an analyst; a lot better than many of the other former players and coaches who have been doing that for a much longer time.

    I can't wait to turn the TV off on him.

    Can you imagine the nielsen ratings map when his face shows up and all of Massachusetts just goes dark?

    So ESPN hired the guy who was openly trying to give tips to the Jets on how to beat New England in the playoffs.

    Boy, I am not even a little suprised.

    A little fun, and a slightly off-center sense of humor.

    Hey, I could have started yet another Osi Umenyiora thread instead!

    I thought he was pretty good, ESPN hired H Douglas, how many guys are they gonna hire? Does this mean a reduced role for others?

    I have not watched that station since oh, week 1 of 2007 at all save to watch a live game. This just gives me another reason not to watch them, visit their website, or read their magazine.

    ESPN has recently begun to add some deeper dive guys. I think they're trying to add some content to counter their casual fan stuff. I thought Mangini was really quite good when they had him on and I hope he has success in his new job.

    He's a better analyst than Herm Edwards, I'll give him that.

    I haven't seen much of Tedy B this season hope he isn't being marginalized there.

    There's an awful lot that I can let roll off my back, a lot of stuff that I can forgive and forget about.

    However, in HIS case, I'll make an exception. That man stabbed this franchise, it's staff, players, coach, owner and fan base in the back.

    He can rot away for all I care. He's already rotten on the inside, and his pairing with FESPN is the marriage made in h3ll that we knew was waiting to happen.

    I have no use for him and, unless it's to watch a Patriots Game live, I've no reason to tune in to that network.

    It's all part of Rex's plan inviting the league to beat the Pats. Now they can all get tips for their favorite Pats-hating network!!

    I don't mean to be a dick, but that thread title gives the impression that the Patriots hired "Mangenius". You might want to clarify that ESPN hired him in the thread title.

    Nah, I never thought for a moment that it was the Pats that hired him. I thought some other dumb NFL team might have given him a shot as a coordinator. I don't watch ESPN too much, so I am pleased I will see less of him this year than I did last year.

    I didn't know that ESPN covered rat races.
    Looks like he landed on his paws.

    I just wanted to see what it was like to have a thread sent to the Practice Squad, it's never happened to me before.

    The thread has two one-star ratings so far, it has potential to get there.

    You know, I see where you're going with that, and I like it, but it makes me a tad squeamish seeing Ed "Big Daddy" Roth's work associated with an actual rat....... :D

    He wrote a great article in the NY Post last year before our playoff loss to the Jets, detailing why he's had success vs Belichick throughout his head coaching career and what his gameplans were like against the Pats. He was also pretty good on TV, breaking down the matchups and making his picks. He did pick the Jets to upset us last year FWIW.

    He said Belichick's #1 goal is to not lose the game -- don't beat yourself. He also said that BB has his teams prepared for everything, so you have to throw something at them that they've never seen on tape before. He said the most important thing on defense is disguise because if you declare too early and tip your hand, Brady will pick you apart.

    The article he wrote for the Post was about how the Jets could beat NE. It's a pretty good read:

    I wonder if he'd be interested in doing some kind of march/walk for charity?

    He can start in Bristol, and make his way to Boston...

    That sounds like a fine idea to me.

    'Interact' with the fans, and what not??

    Benedict Arnold's, Letters to America is also a good read for those who care to read his stuff.

    Absolutely. Arnold is very similar to Mangini, inthat both were consummate team players, very good at what they did, and dependable, until they began to let their egos run the show. After that, they lost sight of who they were and turned on their friends and nations.

    There is an amazing amount of commonality in those two stories.
