Forgive me if this has already been posted. A few interesting observations from Tomase. Not trying to start the Tomase-slam again but I'd like to know what others think of his BB observations. It also goes to our disscussion about whether BB is arrogant. http://www.bostonherald.com/blogs/patriots/?p=11 No two coaches appeared more inseparable than Eric Mangini and Romeo Crennel, which should come as little surprise since the former succeeded the latter as Patriots defensive coordinator. Neither appeared to have much if any public interaction with Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, but in fairness, their paths didnĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t cross much in the lobby. Speaking of Belichick, itĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s interesting to note how he carries himself among his coaching brethren. Widely regarded as the brightest mind in the game Ă˘â‚¬â€ť Ă˘â‚¬Ĺ“HeĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s the best there is at what we do,Ă˘â‚¬ Steelers coach Bill Cowher gushes Ă˘â‚¬â€ť despite a reputation for being arrogant and aloof, Belichick doesnĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t strut around like he reinvented the sport. The best word to describe him would be unassuming. Wearing jeans and slinging a courier bag over his shoulder, he looks more like a college professor than an NFL coach. HeĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s also noticeably smaller than most of his compatriots, which is striking considering the towering shadow he casts over New England. Sitting between Cowher, who must go about 6-4, and the 300-plus-pound Crennel at the annual coachesĂ˘â‚¬â„˘ photo, Belichick practically disappeared. It wasnĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t a bad metaphor for his lobby presence either, which seemed not so much elitist as shy and unpretentious. Unlike Tampa Bay coach Jon Gruden, who wears a permanent smirk, Belichick tends to walk with his head down, stopping to greet writers and football people he knows and avoiding eye contact with those he doesnĂ˘â‚¬â„˘t. And for whatever itĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s worth, he seems pretty close to Cowher.
