    The problem I have with this kind of story is that it creates unreal expectations, or makes people think that BB thinks he has not made mistakes and then sets him up if something does not go right.

    No one never makes mistakes, and BB/Peoli have made some -- Starks and Beisel come to mind. The real issue is not do you make mistakes, it's do you get things more right than wrong, do you learn from and not repeat mistakes, and do you get it right when you bet big.

    By this standard, BB and Peoli have not been perfect or mistake-free, but they've done a lot of big stuff right.

    The problem I have is double-negatives give me a headache. Now, do BB/Pioli make mistakes or not?

    He also claimed that Branch was not around when Belichick made an example out of Milloy.

    Actually, it was during Bracnh's second year.

    Is this guy the Hench who appears in Bill Simmons' columns? That's the only way I can figure this guy gets a column on a national website. "Hey, I know Simmons....I'm Hench! I know Boston sports!"
