    I don't know about some of you that watched the show this morning,but Mangini spent a good amount of time talking about Brady and what made the Patriots what they are today.

    It seemed eerie to me to listen to that snitch talk about the team he caused havoc for.....I wonder if Belichick was watching the show with a clenched fist :cool:

    Mangini then joined the round table discussion of how Ochocinco didn't get the ball and could become a problem.....how about giving a few games before we diagnose Chad as a malcontent on a team that was unstoppable on offense? :rolleyes:

    At least Skip, who is the best espn has (and no, I'm not kidding) says that Chad will be a huge factor by mid season.

    As soon as I heard he would be on, I shut off the radio.

    Screw that guy.

    I'm not sure there's therapy that can help support this statement.

    Skip seems to either really have a different way of thinking or just has the role of taking an unpopular view point to generate conversation.

    I think it's the latter. He's there to stir things up.

    I almost peed in my pants when the talk included Bill's unusual fist pump after the Welker long run TD

    They said it was in retaliation of Sporano acting like that when the Dolphins scored earlier and say that Belichick remembers 'everything' and then someone said "hey Eric,you can attest to that"...I thought that was the best part of that segment,Eric had nothing to say,his mouth drooped open.

    Eric even speaks sneaky as much as he looks the part,he is the type of guy you would never want to tell a secret too,it would be on the 6:00 news,hours later.

    I watched it and it bugged me hearing him say such positive things about the Patriots. He seriously is trying to get on BB's good side or something.

    I can't stand that guy.

    I don't think he'll ever be a "huge" factor, but I do think we'll be happy he's on the team. It's good for depth if nothing else.

    He also mentions that the relationship with BB is a "work in progress" and says the end result was not he had in mind about what happened to us.

    gee, ya think :rolleyes:

    He was on D&C this morning as well. I listen out of curiosity.

    Key points.

    His son's middle name is William after BB. :eek:

    Regrets the result of spy gate but wouldn't go as far as saying he wished hadn't done it. He just never thought it would go the way it did and didn't intend the harm it caused to the Bill, the Pats or the Krafts that it did.

    Ask how long Bill will coach and he said as long as he enjoys it. Asked if Brady leaving could make him not enjoy it he replied they can never let both of them leave the building the same year. The vacuum it would leave would be too much.

    Asked about his current relationship with Bill he said let's just say it's like the Patriots defense, a work in progress. He said he owes Bill everything and hopes to repair the relationship.

    Don't shoot the messenger these are his quotes. For instance I interpret a work in progress as he won't return my calls. :D

    The brief discussion about Favre playing for the Colts was hilarious. Time to let it go.

    I saw it. Two comments:

    (1) Ratgini was actually brought in as a general analyst; it just so happened that TFB put on a show on MNF, so he got to talk about the NEP.

    (2) Actually, IIRC, Ratgini said that 85 could be a problem, but that he wants to win a lot more than he wants to make tons of catches.
