    Fredo speaks after the Harbaugh kerfuffle:

    I'd quote more of the applicable parts, but the rules....

    If Belichick could do it all over again he'd still have Mangina fetching his coffee.

    Unfortunately, our fans need to regret it far more than Mangini.

    I wonder how tough it was for Bruschi to have to sit there and smile next to Fredo? Probably going to invite him for some nice lake fishing in MA. Don't forget to say your "Hail Mary" first.

    Funny, Gresh was saying today that Mangini was an innocent victim that it was Tannebaum who orchestrated this and that Mangini tried to warn Belichick that Tanny was going to get the league to bust him prior to the game. Mangini seems to disprove that theory.

    I may be one of the few who actually like Mangini now that he's out of football, ever since coming to ESPN I've always thought he seemed like he was trying to make things "right" in his mind. He's been a huge supporter of NE and Belichick and I've said numerous times in the past that he sounds like a man who regrets everything.

    It's nice to finally hear him say it out loud.

    I still don't want his pity, but I don't want to hold a grudge against him for trying to prevent any possible advantage from being used against his team. It's natural, and honestly, who could have realistically predicted that the whole incident would be so overblown to the point where it costs a 1st round pick and $1,000,000 in fines?

    He sounds like he misses BB, honestly, I don't see it as him trying to get back into coaching in anyway, just trying to put out the fire on a bridge that is still most likely burning.

    Like to see him take it a step further and take on Goodell for how he handled it.

    Goodell doesn't like being challenged (see: Saints, Patriots), he'd probably try to suspend Mangini from ESPN.

    Nothing in the history of the national football league is more blown out of proportion than Spygate, anyone who knows anything about football knows this.

    Other teams use it as a crutch in their arguement for why the Patriots continue to dominate them year after year.

    No doubt. Still, someone out there with journalist credentials needs to ask Mangini the question: How do you think Goodell handled this situation?

    Need to regret what?? :rolleyes:

    And speak for yourself.

    The only thing I regret is that Mangina and Goodell weren't murdered before they committed that Atrocity.

    I've heard/read about Gresh's theory before, but have never heard/read any legitimate evidence to support it. I think Mangina realizes, correctly, that acquiring any future assistant's position has been made very difficult due to the understandable reluctance of any head coach to trust him. One reaps what one sows.

    Our fans need to regret what Mangini did. We do regret it. Maybe regret is not the right word.

    I like Mangini.

    I wish he would spill his guts on the Jets taping but that would never happen.

    I also think the rat does a great job on espn.. He is the best x's & o's guy out of the 437 analysts they have. But I'm sure he is to BB what Fredo was to Micheal... :spygate:

    I despise Mangini.

    I also wish he would do the right thing and spill his guts on the Jets taping but that would never happen because of the thin hope he probably retains that somebody would be stupid enough to give him a job.

    Him and that creep commissioner can both go to hell.
