Bits of Belichick
Globe Staff October 28, 2008 12:26 PM
Patriots coach Bill Belichick held his regular Tuesday conference call and here were two points of interest:


1) Running back situation remains unknown. Belichick was asked if the Patriots would be going into Sunday's game at Indianapolis with just three healthy running backs, as was the case Sunday against the Rams. Belichick, who could have had competitive advantage in mind, said that remains to be seen. "I don't think we'll have a good feel on that until Wednesday," he said.


2) Peyton Manning and injuries in focus. When a questioner asked Belichick his thoughts on Colts quarterback Peyton Manning and how he's battled through injuries, Belichick responded by calling him a "great player" and detailed what makes him tough to defend (e.g. he makes all the necessary throws). Belichick had completed his answer and then was asked a different question. In his answer to the new question -- about the Patriots and Colts once again meeting in early November -- he stopped mid-sentence and said: "Going back to Manning for a second, if I'm not mistaken he hasn't been on the injury report all year, other than maybe one day right at the beginning of the season. I'm not really sure what injuries you're talking about. He hasn't been listed on the report all year, so I'm assuming he's not hurt." There seemed to be a message in those words from Belichick. The Patriots' injury reporting procedures are often discussed by media members, and it seemed as if Belichick was pointing out that other teams deserve some attention too. Manning missed all of training camp with a knee injury.

And Dungy also hasn't carried him on the injury report every week for the last 3 seasons straight. I'd really love for this asshat to get submarined on the sideline like that fat slob Weis did earlier this year.

I'm sorry for being so ignorant - just what is the significance of Bellichick constantly placing Brady on the injury report? Why do people get worked up about it? Brady goes out and plays regardless (until this year - hee) and I don't understand why it's a big deal. Anyone?

It's against the rules. Of course, that's really never stopped that franchise before. This excerpt pretty much nails the title of this thread as well.

The league's system is pretty straightforward - "probable" means there's a 75 percent chance of a player being ready to go on Sunday, "questionable" means 50 percent chance of playing, "doubtful" means 25 percent chance of playing, and "out" means out. Prior to the 2004 season, Commissioner Paul Tagliabue sent a memo to each team outlining tightened requirements on reporting injuries. He stated that teams needed to be more specific in their diagnosis, and issued a warning about the repercussions of falsifying information.

During Week 4, Atlanta's Michael Vick suffered a leg injury versus Minnesota. Falcons coach Jim Mora Jr. then listed Vick as questionable the following Wednesday, prior to Atlanta's Week 5 meeting with New England. However, Vick didn't suit up for the game against the Patriots, drawing the ire of New England coach Bill Belichick.

The belief in the Patriots locker room was that Mora was intentionally trying to deceive them. By forcing the Pats to game plan against the one-of-a-kind Vick, Atlanta believed it gained an edge (they lost, 31-28). Mora - in a moment of either total honesty or complete stupidity - came out and admitted that he cheated the system.

"It's just trying to preserve a competitive advantage," Mora told Atlanta reporters. "If I give them an edge that I don't need to give them, then I think that is counter-productive to what our goal is."

The league, after watching a coach blatantly ignore their rules and guidelines, did nothing.

In a not-so-subtle attempt to mock the NFL, Belichick listed 15 players as probable on the injury report before New England's Week 6 game at Denver. Among the players initially on the list were Richard Seymour and Troy Brown, neither of whom even traveled with the team. Belichick was being a tremendous baby and hypocrite, since he is notorious for manipulating and concealing information on his injury reports.

Ah, I get it now. I understood before that Bellichick was being an arse, but now I understand why he's an arse, at least in this context. Of course, there are many other contexts I have yet to understand...

Thank you, fansince'76, for taking the time and trouble to explain this to me.
