    Has anyone checked whether Meyer has a PatsFans username? Jeez, and I thought some of us had a man-crush on BB.

    Damn, how's that for praise? I also liked this one right after it:

    Makes sense that he and Belichick are good friends. Sounds like they're wired very similarly.

    Thanks very much -- a very good read.

    Except that the circuit from brain to tongue doesn't carry so much traffic in BB's case! ;)

    I think people often forget how engaging BB can be when the topic is just football. Even the media comments how good he is every year when he does his chalk board talk with the local media. Its when they ask those inane questions about how players are playing, who will start, why did you run that play, etc that he falls back into Bellichickisms that reveal nothing more than blankness. He's never going to throw a player under the bus. He is never going to reveal anything that even would remotely offer an opponent an insight on the Pats. They all know that, but at this point they only ask those kinds of questions so they can get the expected response, which justifies (in their minds) any negativity they can drum up. (see ESPN) ;)

    Yes, well, all true, but ...

    Can you see BB sketching plays for a journalist and then saying: "I'm kind of giving you all we do here..."?

    :eek:

    I think you are crediting some of these morons with too much intelligence.

    Even after almost 10 years some of them still don't get it and it takes too much work for them to actually think about football to come up with a real question. They figure I ask this paparazzi-fluff question at 31 other ball parks I will ask it here. Then they get all in a huff when they get dissed.

    They always then blame BB and never look themselves in the mirror for being lazy journalists.

    And hell we don't want the boss to find out you suck and he is wasting travel money sending you to foxboro; ..... so just edit out the video where he talks to intelligent reporters and only show the parts where BB looks like a silent troll.

    I was actually chatting with a good friend last night and he asked me the dreadful question if BB were to retire/move on, who would you want to see replace him.

    After taking time to compose myself and relax after the shock and horrific realization that it will happen some day I started to think and the only man that came to mind was Urban Meyer. That article only confirms what I've always thought and its that Meyer is just as hardworking as BB and just as modest too. I really like the guy and like his approch to football.
