    It amazes me how stupid reporters are. The guy answers football questions. He doesn't answer specific strategies for specific games. If reporters were smart, they'd stick to what he'll answer, because his knowledge is encyclopedic. Ask him historic questions. Ask him context questions. Ask him tactic and technique questions. He answers them all. His answers are, seriously, amazing. I suspect, if one were to compile answers like this into a book, one would have one of the best football coaching books ever.

    I always notice this when i watch all access as well. When you stick to the things that won't hurt his chances of winning, his answers are incredibly layered and deep and interesting. They reveal so much about the game of football that I miss because i'm no football guru. I learn when i listen.

    This is what I found to be the most remarkable part of the piece:
    ______________-


    "He did not, however, wish to discuss the accusations that he has run up scores.

    At least not for the record."
    _______________


    At least not for the record. He does leave it open that BB actually confided to him personally his feelings about Spygate.
    Pompei, I imagine has a a close connection to BB that goes back many years.

    Great point, Rod. Ask him about any player on the field or upcoming opponent and BB will go to great lengths about all of their strengths. Ask him about an opposing players comments, a game other than the next one on the schedule or some fabricated media talking point and that's what the reporter will get in return. Yet some insist on trying and wasting their question for an answer BB will not give.

    Based on his Moss comments, if anyone thinks BB lets RM get away....think again. I say he finishes his career here and goes out with about three SB rings.

    Yes, because it would be much more effort for you to register than for someone ELSE to write highlights for you. :rolleyes:

    If you don't want to register than use bugmenot.com.

    I think those who haven't crapped upon BB just for the sake of crapping on him will realize that they'll have much more access when they treat he and the team fairly. Those that wish to spread rumor and innuendo will get the same curt, 3-5 word answers.
