    Bill Belichick Sits Down Jimmy Johnson on FOX NFL SUNDAY

    For those who are not aware of it or maybe for those who may not watch the Early games tomorrow.

    There will be a candid interview from Fox's Jimmy Johnson with his good friend Bill Belichick tomorrow

    I believe the interview will be shortly after 12 EST on Fox

    Should be fun to watch,Jimmy usually does good interviews

    Hopefully, it will be objective. I'm guessing it will be and maybe even tilted a little Bill's way given it's Jimmy. It would be nice to see BB given even a small tip of the cap considering the BS he's put up with this past week here and elsewhere. Yeah, I know - here comes the "he deserves it" crap, but the entire body of work says it's been far more good than bad.

    A tip of the cap for assembling and choreographing the 32nd ranked pass defense?

    Nah, I was thinking more about being 19-4 the last couple of seasons, and drafting guys like Hernandez and Gronkowski and being 5-2 this year and tied for first place in the AFC East and getting Brian Waters off of the scrap heap, and having won 3 SB as a head coach and 2 more as DC and having a team go 18-1 3 years ago and being a shoo-in for the HOF and coaching a team w/o Tom Brady at QB to 11-5 in 2008 and winning a SB in 2001 with a team which had no business being on the field with "The Greatest Show onTurf" and shutting down the Buffalo Bills in the SB with Jim Kelly at QB and I could go on and on. But you can't...

    I'm sure it will be a "feel good" fluff piece and deservedly so. As a fan I am disgusted with the state of the defense and how it has been assembled the last few years, BUT you have stated it so well above and another poster said it...there is no one else I would still rather have at the Pats' helm, even post-Brady.

    For a decade+, the Dolphins, won more games than anyone, whipping the ball around up and down the field...but they never won that last game of the year. To this day, Dolfans remain giddy about all the records that Marino and his offense accumulated during that run. Of course Dolfans also are giddy about their last SuperBowl triumphs....in the early 1970's.

    This current Patriots team has the same feeling as the early Bledsoe years. Fans get to admire a talented QB who has to place the entire organization on his back to gain the victory. Time will tell how the 2011 version progresses.

    Looking at the elite AFC teams this year, I can understand why BB has constructed this defense as it stands. BB has fattened up the D line to counter the run first opponents such as the Ravens, Chiefs, Jets, Oakland. I'm guessing BB would be happy to let the QBs of those teams take the load. Same with SD and Texas. The problem is when a team is set up to fire the ball around all afternoon...like Indy use to be. The Pitts, GB, and the Saints. These teams can go short patterns, medium, or deep on any play. The NE secondary is out of their league. Can NE go pass for pass with these airshows? I say no primarily because teams have shown they can ignore any Pats deep threat, because their is none, and clog the field.

    So respect all BB's great accomplishments over the past decade, but understand that BB has holes in his swing. He has ignored/failed to address the pass rush through the draft. He has failed in most every phase of building and developing a secondary. Might as well include the LB corp which is severly flawed. He has shown an extreme stubborness in fact to adapt defensively. He builds a coaching staff using an intern promotion system...unfortunately, these guys are being trained in BB's defensive philosophy, a philosophy that hasn't translated well in today's passing game. To me, this is most worrisome about the future of this defense......who in Foxborough is equipped to help it change course?

    Borg,

    1) Would you use multiple draft picks on DB's? (Obviously you'd never miss on picks.)

    2) Remove BB the GM and you also lose a coach. What GM/Coach combo do you like better, Vinnie Cerrato/Spagnolo or Charly Casserly/ Cowher?

    If you can't answer those, thank you for highlighting a problem WE ALL KNOW and offering NO SOLUTION.

    That is how you sum up the job he has done as HC NEP?

    Re: Program Reminder: Bill Belichick in an exclusive interview with Jimmy Johnson on

    No they didht

    Was does Marinos failure to win big games in his entire career (that was almost always a result of his own poor play btw) have to do with the New England Patrots?

    The Beldsoe/Parcells years were 32-32. This doesnt resemble that at all.

    How have the 'shown' this? It was one game where we scored 17 points in 20 minutes top.
    Dont give me the Jets game, because that was not about an offense that had a QB complete 64% of his passes, throw for 299 yards and an offense gain 371.

    This is news to you? Everyone does. Here is some news for you. He has fewer than anyone else.


    How has he been stubborn to adapt? first of all, why would he when he has had the 3rd best defense over the entire time he has been here? And then this year he switched to a 43 and went ultra aggressive until it failed.

    Wait. You want someone else's defensive philosophy? Who? The Patriots have the 3rd best defense in the NFL from 2000 to today.


    The greatest defensive mind of an era.
