That would be an interesting twist, eh?
A regular M Night Shaymalan twist
Better yet, what if Ernie is the REAL brains behind the operation and BB is just his frontman?
Kind of like what is happening in the White House. (disclaimer: that is not a political statement. It is just a joke. Please dont hijack the thread).
Its all starting to make sense now.
BB knows very little about football but he is very media savy.
Ernie is not very good with the media but he is a genius with the Xs and Os.
Ps: How long before the "Bob Kraft is really the front man for Jeremy Jacobs" theories start floating?
Is it draft day yet? Please?!
Draft day cannot come soon enough, then we can all question the Pats moves for about 2 weeks(what the f were they thinking), Borges and Cafardo can do their lack of credibility thing and then it will all make some kind of sense...
when Weis left I said, well it's not like we lost Ernie...he's more involved than people realize. He's way more significant than Scott. I always hear "Bioli" or BB/SP...it's Belichick and Adams -- that's the braintrust...where the synergy is behind the scenes.
Funny that Adams never gets mentioned on this board.
He is like the Emperor through Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back. A shadowy behind the scenes figure whose importance is never clearly explained.
There's one thing we know for certain: if Borges and Cafardo think we have a good draft, then it will turn out we have drafted a cartful of busts.
Here is Ernie leading last years draft picks and UDFA's in their first drill during mini camp.
While I love Belichick, I would consider my name to be ErnieAdamsFan if I were doing it again - the guy just intrigues the heck out of me.
I'd rather not talk about myself.
And that's all i'm gonna say about that.
He's such an invisible figure, it's basically impossible to talk about him much.
That's because most of us don't know who he is.
I met him briefly at Halberstam's lecture/book signing a few months ago. He's an unassuming, non-descript little guy in his fifties. If it wasn't for that Super Bowl ring that's about as big as his fist, you'd never, ever, guess he was in any way associated with the NFL. It only adds to his mystique. I think it was mentioned in this forum right after the lecture, but Ernie DID say that he is on the 'phones with BB during games, and has input during halftime adjustments.
I'm not sure the majority of us would recognize him if we saw him on the street. I've only seen a few pictures of him. I was going to compare him to Whitey Bulger but if Tunescribe has actually seen and spoken to him, I guess that wouldn't be accurate.
It' d be cool to hear from him. His relationship with BB intrigues me too. How often do you met someone with whom you've experienced a vulcan mind meld that has lasted more than 30 years?
Why not compare him to someone like the late Joel Buschbaum; the real draft guru...who looked more like the anti-football player...(in fact, his picture was never seen until after his death...)
Bill's Girl and I also went to that Book signing with Halberstam. But honestly, we were only interested in Ernie Adams. He signed both of my books and BG's got a few pics of him close up. I could try and post a few pictures I have of him from that night.....
That is hysterical!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
