    I always like BB's pre-draft press conferences. It shows we are finally there, at the draft. Also, Bill always get as first question: how is the LB group this year. :D

    I understand that BB is going to supply detailed information on

    who he is going to draft this year including a list of names.

    I heard the that Bill will tell everyone with 100% certainty that Jerod Mayo was in fact the 10th pick of the 2008 draft and he projects well into his defensive system.

    I don't think there is a press conference I look less forward to. Belichick isn't forthcoming with the information in general during press conferences, but he is even less forthcoming in his predraft presser. I do look forward to the annual question of why doesn't Belichick like drafting LBers early in the draft. Maybe with the drafting of Mayo, that question won't be asked this year. One can hope.

    That is a truly weird statement, unless you're a reporter...

    I love BB presser's because I love jerking people around and he's kind of a role model in that respect...

    BB: Great day, great day. Hey Ron, looking good, we'll talk later. What's up CHB, keep it positive...if you can. Sorry I'm a little late....you've seen her picture.

    Fat Bastard: Coach, will you allow the team to talk to me this year?

    BB: I love this guy.......hey fella, is that a black helicopter flying over head? To answer your question ...........................................................................................no!

    Mike Reiss: I calculate that the team needs depth at OLB,ILB,S, and WR.

    BB: Good to see you Mike. The insider phone number has been changed, talk to my #4. Next question!

    Jacksonville Telegram: Coach, is the signing of Fred Taylor an indictment on Maroney?

    BB: I'm not familiar with that name?

    ESPN: With the surplus of picks in this years draft, many veterans will inevitably be cut. Will the hatred spill out of the lockerroom?

    BB: Security, escort the Soap reporter out please.

    NFL Network: Your legend is growing, many compare you to Vince Lombardi, your Patriots are the gold standard that teams attempt to emulate, you work in the finest facility in the world, your boss is selfless, generous, without fault.........

    BB: Thanks for the kind words. Hey Bob, can we get this young man a ring, from the Putin box?

    BB: Ok, about the draft. we gotta few picks, hope to pick a couple a players, add a little depth, add some competition. We'll try to get em in a game by the end of the season...we'll see.

    Herald: Can we get cameras in the war room?

    BB: There they go with the cameras again.

    I disagree heavily with the bolded part. Belichick is extremely forthcoming with info IF ITS FOOTBALL RELATED. If you ask him a question about emotions, or reputations, or anything like that, he gives you a canned response. You ask him an intelligent question about FOOTBALL, and he'll talk for 25 minutes. The problem is, reporters rarely ask non-story questions.

    Well, today is a great example of this. He's being quite expansive on general questions and pulling the "bob and weave" with specific questions on the draft.

    He repeated the Brady has no limitations line, so that's a positive.
