I saw a couple folks mentioned the quote by the announcers during game last night about Mangini taking notes with him from his Patriots days but nobody really talked about it in this vein. (apologies if I missed the thread - still playing catch up reading) The announcer quote (paraphrased) said ' Pennington told him Mangini showed him a 'thick playbook of his tendancies that Mangini brought with him from the Patriots. By learning to improve on these tendancies he was able to greatly improve his game' So could this be the real source of the enmity from BB??? Not just him leaving early from the Pats, not just going to the Jesters (see other poster-notes about BB giving him best wishes). Not that he did the cheap Branch proposals; ..... but most importantly that he stole Patriots defense materials. Not just stuff that was a product of his (mangini)'s own efforts' but stuff that was obviously from all the Patriots scouts and other asst coaches analyzing films etc etc. That seems a bit more plausible. What do you guys think?
