Links to responses by Belichick and Brady to this week's game - clearly a lot of respect coming from the Pats

This from Brady

On Steelers safety Troy Polamalu:
He can be anywhere, thatís the thing. I donít know if itís necessarily where the coaches put him or where he goes. He kind of does things his own way, he goes where he thinks the ball is going to go. Heís an extremely instinctive player, extremely athletic. He really gets to the ball fast. He flies all over the field. If I could be a defensive player, I would want to play like him. But I canít because Iím slow:chuckle:

This from Belichick

Q: As a football historian, do you have a lot of regard for what the Steelers have done over the years with ownership and coaching lineage?

BB: Absolutely, sure. Since Bill Cowher came Ė well Chuck Noll before that, you canít discount Chuckís record Ė but I was very familiar with him when Bill came in í92 and competing against him in Cleveland and then all through the years of Bill and now Mike [Tomlin]. Theyíve been very consistent and been able to really maintain pretty much their same system [both] offensively [and] defensively. Thatís very impressive in this day and age where you see teams change on a much more frequent basis. I donít think anybodyís really got that kind of consistency like the Steelers have. So, yeah, theyíve done a tremendous job

People always say Bellichick is ****y... but he talks with no confidence at all..
"yea we'll just do the best we can do, they are a great team with good players, so yea, best we can do"

Says that every week.

Unfortunately success begets jealously and a lot of Belichik's detractors are simply envious of his success as a head coach. That and he doesn't have that cheery sunshine demeanor.

A lot of people fail to differentiate his personaltiy with his resume as a head coach.

Sadly I think it really is that simple. Not for everyone, but the majority of the Brady/Belichik hate train were on board way before the whole 2007 spygate issue. Most just used it as further validation of their feelings. When a team rises to the success the Patriots reached in the early 00's it is not without upsetting the legions of fans of lesser teams.

My point is, typically the teams on top attract the most hate. Take Steelers, Patriots, and Colts for example. When they fall, there is jubilation from NFL fans everywhere.

It is basically just jealously manifesting itself as hatred. Although most of the haters dont' know it, they are bestowing the object of their hatred a pretty tall compliment.

How else to explain the conspiracy theorists who insist that the Seahawks and Cardinals were sabatoged by paid referees in their Superbowl defeats?

A lot of people took the opportunity of Belichik cheating to say 'well if they didn't do that, we would have won suchandsuch a game". Yet that retroactive speculating doesn't prove anything definitive. Not to say that Belichik should be completely absolved of what he did, but to hate someone with such banal vitriol like "Fvck him he's a dickhead"? That's a strong emotion, sort of like jealously.

Alot of people on this board hate him just because they kicked our ass and he out coached Cowher when it counted. Everybody tries to get an advantage in one way or another. We blew those games on the field. Not by luck or getting cheated out of it.

I still say the NFL paid off referees in the 'Tuck Rule Game' to get the Patriots to the AFC championship to the beat the steelers and win the superbowl...

Though I try not to hate the Patriots because of their success, especially over the Steelers. But when you really think about it, to say Tom Brady is gay and Bellichick is an asshole or a dick, you are really pushing it because Bellichick in general is just a very nice guy, he never insults anyone, Brady doesn't do anything like that either, so he's a little but of a ***** on the field, but many quarterbacks are, if they weren't we'd see a lot more quarterbacks on injured reserve.

I find that reasoning highly incredulous. For starters, the tuck rule was and is still the appropriate calls. Even then, that did not cause the Raiders to lose the game, they still blew a lead and lost in OT. Yet even conceding that it is a stretch to believe that the league was cheating for the PAtriots, how would they ensure they would defeat the Steelers and Rams?

My point about Belichik is he can and should be criticized for his dirty tacticts in spy gate, but that shouldn't negate his legacy as a coach in New England.

Is that a joke. You just said he cheated BUT it should not negate his legacy. If he didint cheat he would not of won those superbowls and with out the superbowls there is no legacy.

For the above to be true you will first have to prove that Belichik "cheated" before or during those superbowl wins and furthurmore prove that the abscence of stealing signals via video tape would have resulted in losses for NE instead of wins.
I don't think you can prove that, but if you can, I will gladly reconsider my idea about Belichik as a coach.

Also, you fail to understand the full meaning of what I said. I said it shouldn't "negate" his legacy, not that it shoudln't affect or be brought up when discussing his legacy.
