I wrote this in another thread, but I don’t think the BB thought Meyers was great locker room guy.
So you think Juju is going to be "a great locker room guy"?
The players did, yes- Bill, no.
Players opinions matter more in the locker room.
Meyers openly questioned, in the press, the Patriots game planning as early as September. Questioning it in press, that was the beginning of the end for him in NE.
Too bad. Belichick needs to relax. Benching Welker for some innocent foot jokes. Malcolm. Bourne in the doghouse. It's ****ing ridiculous.
Factor in his mind-numbing lay stupid lateral in the Raiders game, which helped knock them out of the playoffs; and that was it. Bill will forgive a guy when the opponent makes a great play; he rarely suffers mental errors.
Here's who I blame 100% for that "stupid lateral"... the Head Coach. Bill Belichick. Kneel down dummy. Pretty simple. Tie-game, it's 3rd-10, 0:03 left in the 4th, Mac doesn't have the arm for a hail mary from that field position (as the HC stated), so take a knee and move onto OT. Absolutely nothing positive could come from running a play there, especially a handoff for a run up the middle. Idiotic coaching, again.
I think BB felt like he couldn’t trust Meyers to do the right thing with a microphone in his face or a big game on the line. Frankly, he is not good enough to do that and have Bill keep him. So, they replaced him with someone for the same price.
Have you heard Juju in front of a microphone?
This is ridiculous, not signing your most dependable receiver because you don't like his presser content and he made the mistake of lateraling to his quarterback who literally laid down like a doormat for Chandler to walk over into the end zone.
