    a timely honor for a great coach and even greater person. I got to know Scar a little bit back in the days of the Bryant camps while writing a Pats blog. Classy ...focused...humble...hard to judge just how much respect we owe him for the job he's done the past two decades. I mean, look at some of the OL's he built from scraps and castoffs.

    Here's to another decade of Dante's input on our Patriots

    Well-deserved honor for a truly great coach. Many of the o-lines he has fashioned from some pedestrian talent have been phenomenal. Particularly noteworthy is the fact that he has been kept on by so many head coaches over decades.

    The old coot keeps in shape. Runs the laps with the fat kids in training camp.

    The word great is used too frequently to describe good and very good performers and teachers in the sports arena, but Mr. Scarnecchia fits the very definition of a great coach and teacher. He is, and has been, a primary ingredient in the successful recipe that has been the NE Patriots squad for so many years now. Congratulations, Dante!!

    I can't remember who this was, but some OL decided that he was going to try and impress Scarnecchia by being at the stadium when Scar arrived.

    He gets up extra early, and finds Scar's truck in the parking lot. Not only that, but the engine had already cooled off. :)

    ETA: It was Logan Mankins, getting there before 6 AM. :D

    Oh, one other Scar anecdote, from Vince Wilfork (same article I linked above):

    Somehow, I see Scar being somewhat, umm, less polite. :rofl:
