    He proved he's a better coach than half the fakers out there. He doesn't have the horses to go against us just yet. He made alot with a little and the coaching is obvious.

    No power RB, no great speed at WR, weak armed QB and an inexperienced OL ... they played well for 3 quaters today...alot better than the 24 teams that did not make the playoffs.

    There are more talented teams out of the playoffs right now ... he did alot with very little. clearly we would have been in great hands had he stayed until Belichick wanted a rest.

    i thought the first half with both coaches taking timeouts on Defense(which teams do very rarely actually)...trying to out guess each other was really entertaining to watch...

    Remarked to the bride
    that i can't remember viewing a game so full of subtle
    traps ... surprises ... and misdirecting ploys - all before the snap.

    I agree - and he deserves credit for the full season as well - but as I pointed out in the "Congratulations Jets" thread, save for the lack of a running game, he's had a pretty injury free year.

    That's what always sets apart the Patriots from other teams - we have the typical injuries - maybe even more than our fair share of bad luck. Our coaches and players always seem to find a way to scheme around the lack of personnel - and the players usually step up to make it happen.

    Mangini really hasn't been tested yet. Let's see how he does amid adversity and see how good a coach he is then.

    Mangini hasn't been tested yet? Taking over a losing, crappy team that lost key players in the off season (Abrham, Martin, etc.) wasn't enough? Dealing with the asinine NY media wasn't enough?

    If Mangini were coaching almost any team other than the Jets I'd almost have to support that team. He did an incredible job with the Jets this year -- overcoming a LOT of adversity in the process. I'd give him coach of the year if it were up to me. His game plan today kept him in it against a superior Pats team for three quarters. Not shabby.

    Belichick and Mangini will be going at each other in the AFC East for years to come. It is actually a good thing because the competition will just make the Pats stronger.
