Not tons of detail, but definitely worth reading.
WOW.. I'm usually not bowled over with comments like this but coming from John Lynch..
Wow those are some really nice things to say and it means much more when you factor the guys he has worked with.
High praise indeed,and ans many others have stated,from a man voted to several pro bowls,and who has played for some great coaches....
Maybe he's thinking about un-retiring. Flattery will get you everywhere!
Wait, didn't he play for Saint Tony????????The heresy of it..............
How about Lynch as a secondary coach?
I was fascinated to read this part:
Remember how we all tried to dissect what it meant that Lynch got so much playing time in that game? So it turns out it was simply a gift to a retiring player, to let him get in one last game of football before hanging it up. Amazing.
We all try to read the Pats' moves like tea leaves, but there's so much behind the scenes we'll never know. And of course, the more those things reflect kindly on Bill Belichick, the less he lets us know them.
This guy is a true Patriot through and through... despite the fact that he was only a Patriot for three weeks.
We knew this... but good to hear it from Lynch..
Wow.. he learned more about football in THREE WEEKS with Belichick? That's unreal. Man, I was wishing this guy had some gas left in the tank for us.
Wow that says alot considering he played under Dungy, Gruden, and Shanahan, the four coaches he played under have a combined 7 superbowl rings (if you want to count BB even though it was only a couple weeks)
Played a year in college for Bill Walsh, 6 seasons with Tony Dungy, 2 seasons with Jon Gruden, 4 seasons with Mike Shanahan....
...and picks his coach of 3 weeks, Bill Belichick, as his favorite. That's pretty amazing.
Geeze - imagine how complimentary he'd be if the guy hadn't cut him.
Seriously. He'd have made a really good Pats kind of player and at the time I was hoping his situation might have somehow worked out.
I hope this story grows some legs; it's an awesome tribute to BB and a check mark for John Lynch too
Maybe a comment like that from a guy like Lynch MIGHT have an effect on some FA's.
Who am I kidding? $ will have the biggest effect.
Well, if the money's close, who would you rather play for, the Patriots or the Cowboys?
If it's A$ante or Branch, maybe the $500K difference would be enough to go to Dallas , but for most others, the Patriots would be the obvious choice.
I bet he now wishes he hadn't taken the Denver job when NE offered to sign him way back when.
You know, this just speaks volumes about how blessed we are to have such a great coach leading our Football team. The media can print whatever they want, but the players in the league know the truth.
