  1. You know, some of us tried shedding light awhile back on the fact that having 18 un drafted free agents on the roster despite having a dozen picks every April is actually a dubious distinction.
    It’s another way of saying Belichick doesn’t know what he’s doing when it comes to the draft.

  2. The Pats problems are more broad than X’s and O’s, they have a math and strategy issue, of which Xs and Os are just one sub-branch of overall strategy. For example, Belichick didn’t realize the odds to win would be greater by playing for better field position. His arrogance gets in the way of his admitting the ignorance he has with respect to where his flaws lie, and that’s with probability and analytics that have held him back his entire career. He’s a great people’s coach, but he’s not a great strategy coach from a math and research and planning standpoint.

  3. Impossible. Bill Belicheat is a GENIUS.

    Tom Brady on his way down, Bill Belicheat will go down with him.
