    This article perfectly sums up why the media rakes Belichick over the coals. He basically didn't want to give this guy some gossip sounbite about the Jets or Favre so now he hates him. What side do you think he will now take if there's another controversy with the Pats or BB? What a joke these people are.

    The Pats haven't worn pads every practice.

    Reiss has given in detail the breakdown between walkthrough pracrtices and full practices.

    I'm pretty sure the Patriots have practiced in pads a lot more than most teams, so his point may be valid, but he hammers the idea that EVERY ONE of their practices have had full pads. Jut not true. As expected, from NY media (or from the network based in Bristol CT, for that matter)

    I cant believe he ends the piece by saying good luck Farve in week 2 like he is routing for him to beat BB because BB wasn't a good interview...Way to stay impartial there dude.

    I think his you need to go talk to the Jets if you want to write a story on them response was hilarious.

    Dude, I don't know what article you were reading but the "now he hates him" and "choosing side in the next controversy" stuff is all in YOUR heard!

    "As always, Patriots' Belichick has blinkers on." Do they mean blinders? Bill's a big guy, but I don't think he's required to wear blinkers.

    I agree, Glauber is almost always in BB's court. The "Good luck in Week 2, Mr. Favre" seems more like a warning to the Jets.

    I don't know. I guess I took it a different way. It seems that Glauber is complimentary to Belichick at the end and everything else is just showing how Belichick is only focused on his team and the season.

    From the end of the article:

    I think from the article, Glauber and Belichick actually have a pretty good relationship at least as far as Belichick has with the media.

    I think Glauber was stating that with Belichick so focused, Favre will have his hands full in week 2.

    Yea this read as a complimentary piece on BB to me. And the good luck to favre definitely seemed like a warning to me.

    I guess I can see that. But with the way the OP steered me and a quick read surely makes it seem like someone who was not happy to be snubbed by BB. But if you guys say Glauber and BB have a good relationship than I guess I believe you.

    Maybe I read it wrong lol. I thought the "laserlike concentration" stuff was sarcasm and I didn't read the last sentence as a warning to Favre, but that makes sense. I was also swayed by the fact that the Jets schedule is posted next to the article.

    Did anyone actually do the poll of the Jets record. Let's just say the Jets fans are overly optimistic in my eyes. More than 50% have them winning 10-11 games with nearly 7% having them win 14 or more games.

    Personally, I see them as a 7-9 win team, but I could be biased the other way.

    Does anyone understand why the media tries to interview BB?

    Why do they expect anything different?

    I thought he wrote that they have been in pads every day, not every practice.

    What he expected BB to say? Jets is a good team because of Farve. He is a fcking moron.

    "Now that Brett Favre is on board, how many games will the Jets win this year?"

    I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the utter stupidity of this question. This is what a professional journalist asks?

    My addition

    I thought the article made a lot of sense. Of course reporters want him to make a provocative comment he'll regret, that sell papers.

    He's not going to do it.

    Just to be devil's advocate, BB can't really expect any favours from the non-Boston media when he treats them like dirt (the Boston media are nicely under control). As a fan I don't care how he acts because he wins games and is the best coach in the business but I can imagine what it must be like to be a reporter assigned to the Pat's when they come to town. No-one expects a copy of the playbook but even Parcells would give you a good quote. It's no wonder they love average coaches like Herm Edwards when you know he'll give you a story when the editor's on your case.

    My feeling is that a lot of reporters see BB the way most of us would see a boss or customer from hell and were delighted when they finally had something on him. There is no way "Spygate" would have stuck to Jimmy Johnson as he had so many media allies. That may not be fair but what is?
