Belichick walking off with time on the clock

Did anyone have a problem with that?

I'm sure he's catching major heat for it today.

I love the fact that they rubbed his nose in it by making them defend for another snap.

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

I don't think it's a huge deal really, he did stop and shake hands with and congratulate Coughlin and the Giants before he left the field.

That's how Belichick is, we shouldn't expect him to change

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

I thought the Giants should have called one more play for a TD.

No, not a huge deal. But...

But if there's time on the clock and your team has to line up for one last play and the head coach is halfway up the tunnel, it doesn't really send the best message.

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

Yea, I just felt that it was another example of how classless Belichick is. I thinnk everyone knew this would happen if they lost.

How insane would that have been? Fake taking a knee and toss it up for a TD?! That would have been hilarious.

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

Who cares? The only thing he needed to do once the game was done was to congratulate Coughlin, which he did. The refs messed up the clock and ticked it down to :00 - it's not like he pulled a Randy Moss.

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

Belichick being his normal, classless self. In fact, I thought it was poor form that the entire Patriots team left without offering any congratulations to the Giants players. Maybe I'm just remembering Super Bowls incorrectly, and I understand it's all about the Giants celebrating when the clock hits zero, but isn't it customary for at least some of the players to shake hands and say "congrats, you guys really earned it today..."?

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

At least he congratulated Coughlin. But I think overall Belichick is a sore loser. His interview with Chris Myers after the game was painful to watch. Though I must say I took some glee in it since here's a coach that hates answering to the media and was forced to do that traditional "losing coach" interview...

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

While I do not think BB ALWAYS acts in the best of taste in a given situation (and yesterday is no exception). I TOTALLY applaud his disregard for the "rules" and doing what HE thinks is acceptable. He obviously spends little time stressing about PC or what somebody else might think of his actions. For the most part, I respect that!

I saw the hand shake and walk off. While I agree that he did shake hands and clearly offered words to Coughlin, my gut feeling is that it was poor sportsmanship. Was it the worst I've ever seen? Nope. Was it consistent with his apparent attitude towards winning and losing? Yup. Does either of those make it the right thing to do? Nope.

It was a meaningless second. He (as anyone would) wanted to get out of there. Do either of those reasons excuse a coach from leaving before his team is off the field? IMHO, no. You're the boss (as he has so evidently made clear in the past). You wait until the game is over and head out. (No need to shake hands a second time). Otherwise, you're just leaving your players out there to face the celebrations alone.

Many a coach stood there for meaningless minutes while your team played its starters with the game's outcome settled - You can man up and wait one second for the game to end.

Belichick is a great coach, but that doesn't mean he should be or is excused from being a poor sport.

Isn't Belichick the one who said that anytime his offense takes the field he expects them to score?

Re: Belichick walking off with time on the clock

He was in a rush to find a quiet corner of the locker room and go cry his guts out.

He shook hands with Coughlin. No big deal. But I'm sure people will make a big deal out of it.
