Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

I just had a problem, it was with the Tiger Woods Sundays best hoodie he had on. He never wore red before but chosses to on Super Bowl Sunday because he wanted to be camera ready when they were supposed to win the Super Bowl. Too bad for him it didn't happen they way he wanted it.

He was all dressed up with no place to go.

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

Belichick is a smug little prick, but this to me isn't that big of a deal.

But you just know there will be a controversy about it. 'Did he shake hands with the opposing coach?' - 'How long was the hand shake?' - 'Did he make enough of eye contact during the handshake?' - 'Was there a hug?' - 'How long did the hug last'?

This kissy-kissy charade the head coaches have to play towards the end of the game is getting a little ridiculous.

You really respect the idea that he thinks rules don't apply to him??

Wow. I'd say that's exactly what makes him a first class jerk.

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

I didn't have a problem with it. He congratulated Coughlin and walked off. The fact there was .01 on the clock isn't really that relevant IMO.

I think that is the point. Belicheck has a track record for being a surly arrogant jerk with the media, and frankly he can only blame himself for the ire that he draws from fans and media alike. He runs up the score unnecessarily to embarass opponents, he acts like it is a HUGE imposition to answer questions from the media, he scoffs at the suggestion that his cheating was even remotely responsible for any competitive advantage his teams got from it. The guy is a first class scum-bag, and his petulent child spoiled brat act at the end of the game only cemented his legacy.

If this was Joe G., Herm E., Tony D., Andy R., etc...guys with better reps with the media and fans, then he would probably get a pass. But he's got a shitty reputation, ala Barry Bonds. He made his bed...now he's got to deal with the backlash.

BTW, I would not be at all surprised to see the league "discover" new evidence re: Spygate and suspend his surly ass for 4 games next year. If nothing other than as a bone to throw to Congress to get off their backs.

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

He probably couldnt take to see the Giants celebrating, thats why he went ahead and went in towards the locker room

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

One second left or not, it's damn poor leadership to leave your team out there. It has nothing to do with relevance or practicality. It's in no way surprising, I would hardly expect better from the most classless coach in the league.

For all the talk of "it's a 60 minute game," the coach, the ultimate leader of the team, not only came up short in the loss, but he left his guys at 59:59. I don't care if it was a mere formality to end the game, no good leader walks off and leaves 11 of his defenders to finish it out.

A good leader is the first in and the last out, at least if he wants to maintain any sense of respect. If I were Belichick's players, I'd be royally pissed right now.

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

Mike & Mike tallked about this today. Golic makes the same point that's been made here, he shook hands & I think even hugged Coughlin, and the game was over for all intents and purposes. I can't blame him for wanting to get away from the masses.

Also, he was as gracious as he's capable of being in the post game. He gave the giants credit.

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

I think Taylor was at the game also... Notice the winning and losing score had a difference of 21 points each the last time these 2 teams played...
Pats won and had 38 pts last game Giants won this one with 17= 21 pt difference
Giants lost last one with 35 Pats lost this one with 14= 21 pt difference

Sean is everywheres I tell ya.

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

I really can't stand Belicheat but I had no problem with that. He really took the time to congratulate Tom Coughlin after whet he thought was the end of the game. I really could care less if he watched the final second tick off the clock or not.

The only thing I saw, or heard, in regards to Belicheat giving credit was a barely audible mumble to Chris Myers in his post game interview. He definately didn't offer his congrats to either Coughlin or the Giants (from what I personally saw and heard). He's a sore loser (among many other things) plain and simple. Like a parent, or your boss at work, you lead by example. The only thing Belicheat lead was the entourage to the locker room before the last second ticked off. Good bye and good ridence Bill.

Though, in fairness, he sounds the same way when they win.

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

i loved it . . he looked like an idiot leading the "games over" parade, half way thru i think he realized there was still time on the clock but didnt want to look like a bigger idiot in having to go back to the sideline so he disregards the time on the clock, goes shakes hands then leaves while his team still has a snap to play . . . making him look like the jerk he is.

very fitting end for him.
