Belichick also addressed his controversial decision to enter the field, embrace Giants coach Tom Coughlin, and then high-tail it to the locker room with time left on the clock.

?I wasn?t really sure of the time,? Belichick said. ?Everybody started on to the field and then I got over there and I wanted to congratulate Tom. I?ve been in that situation before after the game. I wanted to get over there and congratulate him and congratulate him on the championship. There really wasn?t much left at that point.?

Even if Belichick ?wasn?t really sure of the time,? folks like referee Mike Carey were trying to tell him that the game wasn?t over. And Belichick treated Carey as if he were invisible.

Excuses, excuses...if it was me, I'da said "Oh! Ok, one more play, back to sideline folks" and wait out the final play.

That said, I thought Mike Carey and Crew did a good job officiating the game.

Me to as well as my coach. We lost a playoff game this year that costed us a shot at States, but my coach didn't leave the field before then. Beliprick basically told us kids who play the game it's ok to leave the field at anytime for a bad reason.

Here`s an interesting piece by Nick Halling....who he?....well he presents American football for Sky.
He`s something of a hero for me for two reasons 1. He knows his football and 2.He supports the Steelers.

Halling on TV

Each week through the season Sky’s Nick Halling has been giving nfluk.com readers an insight behind the scenes in the broadcasting world. In his final column of the 2007/08 season Nick looks back on Super Bowl XLII from his perspective in Sky’s studio in University of Phoenix Stadium.


This being my final column of the season (stop cheering in the cheap seats) I would like to end on a positive, but before doing that, I feel compelled to comment in a negative way about Bill Belichick, who is without question an outstanding football coach, but who continues to convey the impression that he’s not much of a human being.


It’s the Super Bowl, and your sick as a dog that you’ve been denied at the death. But you still have to show some class. Stick around till it’s all over Bill. I know you don’t care what anyone thinks about you, but try to show the game a little class, even if you find it impossible to show a little class to anyone outside your own arid little world.


And by the time you read this, there might be a lot more to say about Bill Belichick’s cheating. He refuses to talk about it, which doesn’t come as any kind of surprise. But it seems there’s more out there than any of us believed.


No wonder he doesn’t want to talk about it. If it is true, it severely tarnishes his reputation. Bad enough having few personal qualities, but so much worse if you can only win by cheating.


The wonderful irony in the whole Belichick thing is that Patriots “fans” will rally round him. They are just happy that they support a winning team I suppose. What they fail to realise is that their team is run by a man who would probably prefer to play games behind closed doors. He doesn’t need fans, doesn’t want them. They are outsiders, just like the rest of us. And Belichick has no truck with outsiders.


Despite the fact that I never thought the Giants could do it, you have to give an awful lot of credit to their coach, Tom Coughlin. He used to be a hard, strict, soul-less

disciplinarian (what it is with these ex-Parcells guys?), but as has been well documented, he has changed.


Change is good for all of us. Would it hurt Bill Belichick to change a little bit? And show us that, you know, deep down he’s a human being just like us. Too often he comes across as Mr Spock, but even old Spock had a sense of humour.


And now lets turn our attention to someone else who has really has changed. Plaxico Burress has always been blessed with an abundance of talent, but a talent apparently lacking in application. I remember talking about the guy with Shaun Gayle and we both agreed that his only problem lay between his ears.


Well this season, Burress has been a revelation. First of all, he has been a true team player. And second – and just as important – he has been prepared to play through pain. We all knew about the ankle: that’s been bothering him since training camp. It seems he had knee problems too, and at one point his very participation in the Super Bowl was in doubt.


How fitting, then, that Burress had what proved to be the game-winning touchdown. He has earned my unquestioned respect for the way he has applied himself to his task this season, with Eli losing first Derek Ward and then Jeremy Shockey, the pressure to deliver has been squarely on his shoulders.


Talent plus application: now that’s a scary combination.


Full marks for the planning and preparation of Super Bowl XLII. A big pat on the back goes to everyone involved in making it one of the smoothest, best-organised Super Bowls I can remember.


There is something to be said for taking the Bowl game to places where it is really wanted. I have carped on many times before about Miami’s lamentable effort last season, where the rain only exacerbated the sense of smug complacency around the place.


In Houston, Jacksonville, Detroit and now Phoenix, we have been in cities which were so accommodating, you really don’t want to leave. Unlike last year, we had a broadcast booth where everything actually worked this time. You know, things like TV monitors and microphones. Little things like that.


There wasn’t a bad seat in the house. Our broadcast position was high up in the gods, in the corner of the end zone, yet the view was magnificent. If you ever have a chance to go to a Cardinals game at that stadium, grab it with both hands. It’s an awesome building.


The state of Arizona had to wait 12 years between Super Bowls. I sincerely hope they don’t have to wait as long for their next one. If they want a goodwill ambassador in the UK, I’m their man.


Finally, much to look forward to for next season. Sky will be back, so too, as I understand it, Five and the BBC. And we have the small matter of another game at Wembley to look forward to as well.


I’m assuming we will be doing our usual triple-headers again, although we must await our instructions from on high regarding this one. Funny, but we actually found we got used to them after a while.


The crew were wonderful to work with. When you consider all the serious hours of work we have had to put it, there was hardly a cross word exchanged between any of us. Producer Karl Baumann and his right arm Ben March did a terrific job (Ben was my producer here in Arizona and he was truly exceptional), while Kev and I got on well too, with much of that down to Kev, who is ultra-professional yet very laid-back.


I’m going to miss Sunday nights. Quite frankly, I don’t know what I am going to do with myself. Roll on September. But until then, have a good few months, and lets look forward to an exciting future.

Patriots LB Mike Vrabel says coach Bill Belichick did nothing wrong in leaving the field early: ?I think Bill did what any coach would do. He graciously gave them the victory.? [Editor?s note: And then he abandoned his team while there was still one more snap to be taken.] ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME!!!!

http://www.boston.com/sports/football/patriots/articles/2008/02/08/vrabel_has_defense_for_belichick/

HONOLULU - Linebacker Mike Vrabel, a first-time Patriots Pro Bowler, vigorously defended coach Bill Belichick's departure from the field with one second left in New England's 17-14 Super Bowl loss to the Giants Sunday.
more stories like this

Belichick's brisk exit has been criticized by many media outlets and commentators and has been monologue fodder for late-night hosts such as David Letterman.

"Their team was on the field, the photographers were on the field. I think Bill did what any coach would do. He graciously gave them the victory," said Vrabel yesterday.

"We're not going to sit out there and steal their victory and celebration. What was Bill going to do? Pull all the photographers off? I think he gave all the credit to the Giants and I don't think anyone was trying to disrespect them. Everybody [on the Patriots] was upset, but when all of those people were on the field, what's Bill Belichick going to do to get them off?"

Vrabel appeared to be hurt in the fourth quarter after diving for a fumble, but he said the incident looked worse than it was.

"I hit my head on the turf," he said. "But we had a timeout, so I don't think I missed any time."

Vrabel, an 11-year veteran whose contract runs until 2009, will turn 33 in August. He's part of an aging linebacker corps that includes Tedy Bruschi (35 in June) and Junior Seau (who recently turned 39).

Was game No. 19 one game too many for them?

"I think when you lose, [age is] always a factor, but when we win, I don't think anyone really cares," said Vrabel. "When we win or make plays, we're experienced. When we lose, we're old. It's as simple as that."

The team's leader in sacks (12 1/2) acknowledged this was a very long season for the over-30 gang.

"We played a lot of snaps," he said. "But we got the guys we got out there. We weren't able to make the play at the end of the game, but I'd still go out there with that same crew and take our chances again."

Asked how much longer he thinks he can play, Vrabel shrugged and said, "I'm going to play until I can't make any more plays."

Ya pretty sure pigs can't fly either. He may be a great head coach and some day one of the best, but his behavior is the worst around and i have no respect for this man and how he presents himself.
Put on some real clothes for a game and show respect and stay on the field you big baby......man this dude makes me so mad and so does the whole Pats organization!
