Belichick is Coach of the Year

SI.com - NFL - Belichick wins Coach of Year - Thursday January 3, 2008 2:20PM

Hooray!!! Nice to see the award go to such a good guy.

He did only receive 29 of the 50 votes. McCarthy was in second with 15 votes.

Also getting votes were Dallas coach Wade Phillips and Jacksonville's Jack Del Rio (two each), and Indianapolis' Tony Dungy and Tampa Bay's Jon Gruden (one each).


So... how does Joe Gibbs not get at least ONE VOTE after the incredible job he did this year pulling this team together?

Re: Belichick is Coach of the Year

Bill Belichick led a team into the history books, he deserves it. Of course, if the Patriots don't win it all people will say why don't we wait until after the playoffs to pick the coach of the year?

As for Gibbs, I mean I love the guy and think he is one of the best leaders in any walk of life and what he's done this past month has been outstanding. So yeah he probably deserved at least one vote. But let's not forget that before we went from 5-7 to 9-7 we went from 5-3 to 5-7.

The only one that doesn't make sense to me is Gruden.

Re: Belichick is Coach of the Year

Just to be clear, I do think Belichick should have won, no question. I thought he was going to sweep the voting, to be honest. I was just surprised to see that with 21 votes hanging out there, no one thought JG's job was worthy of a vote. I'm not pulling my hair out or anything, but surprised.

I do not think that Wade Phillips is deserving of a vote though. Basically, he's riding the coattails of Bill Parcells. Does anyone really think that if Tuna was still in Dallas that this team is worse off? I don't.

Re: Belichick is Coach of the Year

I'm sorry, but I'm in the minority here and do not think he should have been named coach of the year. The guy cheated, got slapped with the biggest fine on a coach in the history of the league, and cost his team a 1st round pick, not to mention his other acts of class.

Giving Belichick the COY award is almost akin to giving a Pulitzer to an author who plagiarized parts of someone else's book. In the absence of the cheating scandal, Belichick undoubtedly deserves it. In light of the cheating scandal, he doesn't.

Re: Belichick is Coach of the Year

16-0 is a pretty strong argument. Especially in light of the fact that they were caught recording signals in week 1. There was never any benefit this year from that episode. (the tapes would have helped only in preparation for the second time they played the Jets) So while it was technically cheating and undoubtedly low class, I can't ignore the fact that it was pretty inconsequential. I think the scandal only served to taint their past accomplishments if anything, going forward they will be closely watched so it shouldn't diminish what they are doing now. All of that said, BB is still an arrogant prick.

Re: Belichick is Coach of the Year

Gibbs got ripped off. It is a 16 game season, this award should be given at the end of the season when things sort out, such as how far the coach took the team, i.e, playoffs, SB. That's when the award should be given, If McCarthy took his team to the SB then McCarthy gets it or if Gibbs makes it to the SB then Gibbs. Belichick despite of his record, as punishment shouldn't have considered.

I understand your point about BB, but are you saying that whoever wins the superbowl is automatically coach of the year?

I definitely see your point. The "cheating" didn't end up providing the Pats with a competitive advantage. But, I find it hard to honor a coach as the COY when he has been caught cheating, regardless of whether such cheating affected games.

I'd be really surprised if the league makes a big deal out of it, honestly. They should just parcel post his trophy to him and forget it. No point in honoring someone who's just going to be bitter and caustic to the very people who voted him the award.

No. This year you have Belichick, Del Rio, McCarthy, Phillips, Dungy, Gruden. All this guys teams are in contention. I would rule out Belichick (as penalty) Dungy and Phillips. Del Rio, Gruden, McCarthy and Gibbs are almost equal on the job they've done (I'm partial to Gibbs due to homerism and the amount of drama the team has gone thru) then out of those 4 whoever gets furthest I would give him the award, if it's a tie then go with the record.

Re: Belichick is Coach of the Year

Belichick is Public Enemy Number One in my family. More so than JJ. Do not run the score up on us, and ever expect us to forget about it. Asshole! I hope he retires at the top of his game next year.

Im watching you Bill, I will always watch. Can you feel it?

I'm praying that we make it to the SB and play NE. Payback would be sweet, not only would we ruin NE perfect season but Gibbs would rein over Belichick as the best coach ever. A double FU in my opinion.
