This guy is so much better than every other coach, it's a joke.  I hate him so much.  

Nothing like snarky BB to get the day going. The weather in NE overnight and this morning was snow, sleet, and freezing rain. One would think the perfect weather for a controlled indoor practice to be

I used to hate BB and the Pats..but now I have so much respect for him as an NFL HC.   The NFL is an unforgiving league where players and coaches are ate up and spit out. To have this kind of success

Patriots were still set up to get the ball back with plenty of time to drive down and kick the game winning FG.

If anything, BB WANTED the clock to run .... so NE could kick the FG with very little time left on the clock.

I'm still thinking Belichick was showing the league its own loophole back when used it up thirty against the Jets.

I'm not sure how smart it was and it easily could've backfired but in the end it did help the Titans because Pats got ball back with 15 seconds left and would've had a lot more time.

Could have backfired for Vrable indeed.

Had Edleman not dropped that layup catch for a 1st down, would have been another 1st down or two away from ending the game with very little time for TEN to respond (assuming Pats don't miss the FG attempt)

Then the story would be how Vrable out-foxed himself with BB's rule book loophole.

Agreed.  I also found his decision to go for 2 after the pick six strange.  True that success would have made it a two score game but failure actually left them open to a loss upon a return for T.D. on the ensuing kick and a 2-pt conversion by them.  I get that it is a philosophical decision.  I also get that extra point kicks are not always successful, but I would have taken my more or less automatic 8 point lead and forced N.E. not only to return kick for T.D. but also to convert a 2-pt conversion just to obtain a tie.  Seems to me the guaranteed tie if everything went bad and a likely win beats a guaranteed win if things go good but exposure to loss if they do not.

Agreed, going up by 8 is huge.

I’m not sure they are tanking. Wouldn’t it make more sense to not sign Cam Newton and encourage opt outs? I also don’t think it’s in Bills blood to tank, at least the year after Brady leaves. I don’t put it past him to do something obscure to put him in the best position to grab a high QB though. They have to take one next year, right?

Tank for Trevor already in motion.

Agree to disagree, he has zero control over players opting out so I don't see the correlation u appear to b making. Why would they sign Newton?  Everything I know about the man leads me to believe he would cut off an arm before he would plan to lose an entire season, particularly a season that could prove critical to the was it Brady or BB that mattered most legacy question.

BB has always been a glorious student of the game that enjoys teaching.

I look forward to see how he uses Cam. James White isn't McCaff but he catches plenty of passes when he's in the game too.

 I was wondering what he'd do knowing he's gotta stop Henry and Lamar and he added the biggest MLB in quite some time.

None of these are enough moves or changes for the Pats to be successful but we all know the guy will have more ideas.

There's no way all the new players gel without a preseason and there's no way there isn't a post Brady let down, but what about when it all comes together? This should be the most interesting season to (pretend we can) watch BB's mind in a long while.
