That works better for Bill when the team's winning though. Now that the team is back in the pack he's taking some hits. That attitude used to bother me at first, but then they started winning.What Belichick doesn't have is the need to explain and justify himself to others. That makes him very unusual in modern America.
Two of the best quotes about Bill came from the book "Education of a Coach." Here they are;
The first quote about Belichick is from a Boston political columnist by the name of Joan Vennochi who rarely wrote about sports. Belichick, she noted, wasn't "glib or glitzy. At press conferences he sometimes seems a little goofy and is often way too grim. But he is a leader without the swagger, selfishness, and pomposity that so many men in business, politics and sports embrace as an entitlement of their gender and position."
The second quote comes from Peter Richmond, a writer from Cleveland. "What's interesting about him, and was judged a weakness in Cleveland, was that he did not play any games. There's nothing fake and there never was. He is what he is. There is no pretense, and he is utterly authentic in a world where, because of television, there is more and more which is inauthentic. What's troubling about all this is that a lot of people are more comfortable with the inauthentic, if it is reassuring, than they are with the truth, if it is not reassuring. He doesn't play the role of the coach. Instead he is the coach."
