    This week it appears BB was pretty talkative. Mangini didn't say a word and quickly left.
    I wonder if the media is going to talk about how Mangini shrugged off BB? Probably not.
    If the opposite happenned (Mangini saying good game; BB shake & walk away) it would be talked about all week

    Edit: Not saying there's anything wrong with how Mangini acted. He was probably pissed his team loss and wasn't in a good mood. Well, BB is pissed after 80% of the games cuz he's not happy just to win, he expects near flawless execution. Of course the media expects all coaches to act like the Saint and be happy no matter what

    Yeah Bill was a CLASS ACT, in the face of so much hypocrisy and backstabbing against him.

    I hope Mangini is fired within a year and that he gets shut out by the coaching community.

    I don't think BB could have handled "the handshake" any better than he did. I hope that puts all of this nonsense to rest for next season and going forward (as long as EM coaches).

    BB handled it perfectly. Big smile all the way across the field. A quick shake and some hugs for various Jets players. Perfect, to go with our still perfect season!! Go pats!

    If you believe you hold the high ground, act as if you do. I'd like to think that was the case here...

    I think that was 50% sincerity and 50% not giving the media anything to harp on for the next 7 days.

    I loved the big smile on his face as he walked to the center of the field. He looked loose, casual, content. There is no way you can find fault with any bit of that handshake.

    I think you're about 49.9% off on that. That fake smile he had plastered on his face and the ridiculously inappropriate "Awesome!" were the antithesis of sincerity. No, this was a calculated move to quash any potential handshake discussion.

    The smile may have been fake, but it didn't look it. BB was happy to win. Whether or not he actually believed it was "awesome" is another story.

    I believe that he feels it's "awesome" whenever he beats those guys.

    A Division Win is a Division Win, especially over the JESTS, however it happens.

    I remember reading somewhere that when Belichick came here he went out and got some PR training. He even followed up or still follows up on it. Someone once asked him about it and he just said he was always looking to better himself just like he expected from the players.

    I'm going to search for that info ... be back soon.

    I hope for worse for Man-gina, that sniveling, cowering, pile of dogsh##.......watching him in the press conferences leading up to this weeks game in which he was denying illegal videotaping activities (which were illegal by the way), he looked like a spineless pu$$y......staring at the floor, shuffling his feet,....stuttering.......I wish the worst possible for this RAT.....and do believe that he will be fired within the next 2 years......not sure where he goes from there....and don't care,......douche bag!!!!!!!!!!

    BB genuinely hates the Jets. The only team he is always happy:D to beat, no matter how they play.
