Some of you don't know what ironic means.  How grapey.

Belichick is a very petty man, he always has been.

Yes, Bill, the plan all along was to use Denver's smallest, highly-paid, concussion-prone and uber-valuable possession receiver to take out Talib.

cragmor: It was the worst hit he has seem, yet he had Rodney Harrison on his team. A tiny receiver lays a block, yet this outweighs Rodney being the dirtiest player in the NFL by other coaches.


The Pats probably ran this same play with the same receiver 100 times while Welker was there.  This is a pretty text book pick play that every team runs.

Between this and the news that leaked that Brady played "hurt" it's pretty much the most sour grapes a coach has had in a long time.

They're the primary ingredient in whine.

this is an issue because its the Patriots.

It just gives people a reason to type Tom Brady, Belichick and Patriots in an article.  I watched the hit and legitimately thought they just collided (since Welker ends up on his butt).

It took me 6 viewings just to see if Talib even got hurt.  The fact that no one called out Bill when he made such a ridiculous remark is what the real story should be.

Watch the tape, Bill. Shouldn't be a problem for you.

FTA: The comments tell us Welker won't face any league discipline. Belichick's only recourse at this point is to plead for a rule change with the league's Competition Committee. We wouldn't be shocked if he did.

At which point the Competition Committee will show him the play earlier where Belicheck had his WR Edelman do the exact same thing to Cromartie.  Then they will stare at the coach for a full minute before giving him a long-overdue dopeslap upside the head, then they will revoke every rule that the Patriots had asked for in the past few years because rule changes are for WINNERS.

Bill's reaction struck me as unnatural.  It wasn't a huge slobber knocking hit.  If Talib was the reciever and Welker the DB it wouldn't have really stuck out as even a big hit to seperate him from the ball.  It wasn't textbook it was fairly awkward.  But he hit him in his center mass and not head high or knee low so there's no way you should even call it dirty.  Especially if you allowed Rodney Harrison, who has made a big deal about how he set aside money every year to pay fines, roam your backfield.  Its weird how big this has become.

But Bill Belichick is the hooded genius! He's never wrong about the rules.

I'm waiting for the rule change. Patriots wide receivers are not allowed to be touched before, or after the ball arrives.

Something witty. Something witty. Tuck rule. Something witty.


/Everyone should laugh now!

I heard it was the worst play he's ever seen in 39 years of taping games.

/how are those grapes anyway?
