    I really doubt this crap. I think this is an attempt from the New York media to rally the Jets. Belichick NEVER slams any coach or player in public. Complete garbage I'd bet.

    Oh, please. For God's sake, Belichick can make Andrew Walter sound like a friggin' Pro Bowler. :rofl:

    Cimini wrote "Belichick told the magazine." Is there any link from the magazine? If Cimini wrote that BB told it to "the magazine" then that means it was published in the magazine.

    This is a load of crap. It reeks of it. :rolleyes: I wonder when BB supposedly made these comments. Heck Rhodes hasn't even made the Jets yet. Whatever, let them keep piling on **** like this has a way of backfiring.

    Re: Bill Belichick rips Kerry Rhodes - "Couldn't make my team"

    Think it is OUT OF CONTEXT????

    Here is quote from article by King:

    "Most told me I was loony to have Rhodes ranked in the 20s and Bills tackle Jason Peters in the 30s. I believe Rhodes comes closest to Ed Reed (12), the best impact safety in the game, and I believe Peters, a converted tight end, will be an All-Pro within two years. So I wouldn't move them down even if Bill Belichick called and said, "Neither of those guys could make my team."

    Re: Bill Belichick rips Kerry Rhodes - "Couldn't make my team"

    Seriously, can anyone honestly see BB saying this to any reporter on the record? I say theres no chance this quote is in actual text online, someone should find it or this Cimini tool should provide some evidence atleast.

    Thank you for the link CR4

    Cimini should be fired for doing what he did, anyone else agree? He took that WAY out of context, that was a joke from King. Not a direct real quote. What a joke the Jets are.

    He should be fired immediately, how does someone get away with doing that and making it into a story in a major newspaper?

    Ploy by the New York media to motivate the Jets. They are desperate to get the win.

    Wow! Cimini is an idiot! If you read the article, you clearly see that Belichick never said the quote. King used a dummy quote to show how much he convictions in his picks. I can't believe Cimini woould write and article and the fact checkers would allow the article to go to print without actually rereading the article to see that he got it wrong.

    That is stunning to me. This guy gets paid to be a journalist, and he (intentionally or not) misreads a fellow journalist? Yikes. :eek:

    I guess BB has a lot of faith in his, in his tackles and safeties, Still very unlike BB to make a comment like that.

    He didn't make that comment. That's the point. Peter King put that line in his article as pun of some sort and that moron of a reporter is putting it out there as if BB called and actually said that to Peter King. I bet Peter King ain't to happy right now.
