    Apparantly Myers saw the tide turning and is now doing his best to turn it back.

    I almost guarantee Mangini wishes he ahd a time machine.

    While I certainly think he had every right to get the Pat's cameraman off his sideline, the poopstorm that has come down over how he did it, who he did it too, and the backlash both now and down the road from the NFL Coaches community can't be worth it.

    All my opinion, of course.

    Considering the source,it's quite comical,lol..I wonder what Easterbrook will come out with to keep it alive? Mangini must be downing Pepto Bismol by the gallon...

    Wow, the venom some of these writers have for Belichick is unbelievable. They don't even try to hide it.

    I also love the endless use of unnamed sources. If these anonymous coaches aren't brave enough to put their names to their quotes, they should shut up. Or maybe Myers is just making them up! We should do that:

    "One unnamed reader said that Gary Myers was 'About the ugliest guy I've ever seen. He looks like a sick horse.' Another reader, who asked not to be named, agreed. "He's frightening, and everybody thinks so,' he said. 'Personally, I'm not sure he's actually from Earth.'"

    Wearing an old hoodie is flaunting his influence? Imagine what they'd be saying if he was the one asking to wear a suit?? Obviously he dresses for comfort on the field, not appearance.

    Yeah, he's constantly flaunting his influence by wearing that hooded sweatshirt. He's just following the rules. It's what they all wanted.

    I love this quote:

    Wow was Myers scraping for quotes. What does the fact that Belichick dresses like a "slob" have to do with Mike Nolan. This quote makes it sound like Belichick had some influence on the league not allowing Nolan to wear suits. I bet the fact that Belichick wears the same hoodie every week has helped sales at least in this part which is the reason why coaches are required to wear Reebok logoed apparel in the first place.

    If Myers wants to talk about sloppy, how about his journalism.

    I'll bet Reebok makes a lot more money selling those hoodies than they do selling suits........
    Now I know why they wear green in NY....the color of envy...

    Myers conveniently overlooks the difference between someone filming something for later use and someone looking to steal signs for immediate benefit. It's not stealing signals that's the problem for Gary, because he's not calling that "head coach" out for stealing them. Now, I'm confused. If it's so easy for teams to steal the signals 'visually', why all the commotion about getting them on tape?

    I love the "unnamed sources" tactic. If anyone believes more than 75% of "unnamed sources" are actually legit, than you are an idiot. These writers love to do it because A) They are lazy and B) it helps them advance their story and agenda.

    so BB is an arrogant villain because he dresses like a slob? This must be almost over because this *has* to be the bottom of the barrel.

    Gary Meyers, you used to work here and when you did you were a respectable writer. It's sad to see how far you have fallen

    ======================================
    This kind of sums up what I have been trying to say the last couple of weeks.

    Mangini is now once again a Jet, he is obligated to look out for his teams best interest.

    It is not about getting a step up or getting even, it was about takeing care of his own.

    I do believe in most cases unnamed sources are real. Making up quotes can and has cost jouralists their career.

    But if you look at Myers quotes, he definitely does not make it clear if two different head coaches gave him the two quotes from "one head coach". Typically if there are two unnamed sources, the second quote would be by "another head coach". My guess is the same unnamed head coach gave both quotes and he split them up in the story to make it look like he had more coaches providing him quotes than he really had.

    "To suggest Mangini is ungrateful and should have ignored his former boss blatantly cheating against him in his own house is ludicrous."

    Is ludicrous another word for the God's honest truth???

    "His relationship with Belichick deteriorated last year when the Patriots filed tampering charges against the Jets - in essence, accusing the Jets of cheating, of all things - in the Deion Branch case."

    Yeah, that's right. It was just peachy before then. Especially immediately after Mangini took the job and started trying to pirate away Pats employees right out of the gate.

    Do you think this is the first time anyone has been caught breaking the rules like this during the game? There are ways to look out for your team's best interest without blowing this up to a league-wide scandal. The Jets security caught Estrella 8 minutes into the game. They could have easily escorted Estrella out of the stadium at that point which would have protected their team and not brought this public and commissioner scrutiny down on Belichick and the Patriots.
