Bellicheck A Sore Sport

Mon Feb 04, 2008 3:33 pm

After losing to the Giants in Super bowl XLII Coach Bellichek left the field with :01 left.

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/nfl...Belichick-would-rath?urn=nfl,64971

Granted losing sucks, but the Pats didn't exemplify good sportsmanship.

What says the crowd?

Tony Romo brought Jessica to a game, they tank; Brady brings the Victoria's Secret model to the top game, and he tanks. A good superstition set-up.

In all fairness, didn't everyone think the game was over but the NFL, the coaches already shook hands, the field was full of people, etc. Perhaps Bellichek learned leaving early from Randy Moss.

Bellicheck is a guardhouse lawyer, he knew damed well with a change of possession, the other team needs a snap for it to be over. He did throw the red flag for twelve men didn't he? He knew damned well. Even Giseele Bundchen doesn't treat Brady as harsh as the Giants D did.

In all fairness, the clocked showed zero when everyone hit the field. It was then that the clock had 2 seconds then just one second put back on it. While Belicheck was looking for Caughlin. At that point, it was a mess. All because they had to put one second back on? Not even Dave Krieg was going to fumble that snap if they played it out.

I thought it was pretty crappy of him to make the officials enforce a penalty on the Giants when their 12th player was one step from being off the field when NE snapped the ball. That was not a play-affecting situation so he was just taking a cheap shot. The intention of the rule is to keep one team from having more "players" than the other.

Poor sportsmanship or a smart way to gain 5 yards? You be the judge.

To be fair to him, everyone thought the game was over and I believe I saw the two head coaches shake hands in the middle of the pitch. What was he supposed to do, go back to the sidelines, wait on the kneel-down, then shake hands and say "Well played." again?

Well, it was very late here, so I may not be remembering this too well, but weren't NE about to punt having not completed the pass on 3rd down (the play with the 12 men on the field)? So, I think NE kept possession instead of having to punt.

It's the Superbowl, they're there to win and will use every tool at their disposal. If NY was smarter they would have only had 11 men on the field, then it wouldn't have been an issue. Personally, I think any head-coach would have thrown that red flag in the same situation.

As noted by others, it was believed there was no time left, the losers were leaving the field, the winners going on the field to celebrate, but the game had not officially ended. Probably Bellicheck wanted to go hide and cry about losing the big one. What a jerk.

Even though I dislike Belichick, he was absolutely right to throw out the challenge flag on that...it was not a cheap shot as it was 4th and less than 5, so if he was right, the 5 yard penalty gives the Pats a first down...and he was right...

It certainly made for an interesting post game interview. All I know is he was sore about last year and losing to the Colts, he then comes back and wins 18 straight games (still technically beating Miami's 17-0) in a fashion that could arguably be one of the best single season performances by a team in any sport. Now he lost his baby in the big game, I'd personally would not want to be facing the Patriots at all next year based off his diabolical track record for vengeance.

The NFL should have just let the 1 second run off.... everybody knew the Giants would just take a knee, so what was the point of that....

I don't blame Bellicheck, as everyone thought the game was over... the league should have left it alone at that.

Besides, Bellicheck needed to get into the locker room and hide the video's he took of the Giants final walk-through the day before... (just kidding!!)

Bellicheck ran out on the field when the clock hit zero (mistakenly and I hope they fire someone over that) and shook hands, and hugged Tom Coughlin while smiling at him. Sportsmanship was demonstrated. I doubt he looked up as he was running off the field since he was rightfully upset over losing (as any of us would have been) and he did come back once the field was cleared. He wasn't trying to be a poor sport. Go look at the TIVO for confirmation of all this.

I'm not a personal fan of the guy, but he's a damned good coach and didn't do anything wrong here.

I do think that the asterisk their season is going to have is his fault, and I think it's good that the Giants won for more reasons than I wanted Strahan to get a ring, and to see if Archie's pants can hold him now.....

Says who? He broke up with a woman before he knew she was pregnant, and has evidently been dating this other one since then. Is he constantly photographed with starry eyed young women who rotate weekly? No...he's dating a woman who makes almost as much as he does, if not more. Who dumped her movie star boyfriend to date him.....I'm not sure where folks get off calling names of others when they don't really know anyone involved.

Absolutely. He would have been negligent in not doing that....taking advantage of mistakes and the rules is part of the game.

Nah....rules are there. What if they'd fumbled and the Pats recovered to run it back for a td? It's happened before. I'd have demanded it, and I'll bet Bellichick didn't know about the extra two seconds or he'd have stayed on the sideline and tried to strategize how to screw with the Giants on that last snapcount.

Poor sportsmanship.

What you guys here are missing is, you're all basing this on an opinion of a news acticle(and of course the media, they're never wrong) and lack of knowing Bill Bellicheck. He did shake hands with Tom Coughlin, and him running off the field, not shaking hands with everyone in sight is kind of matter of personal preferrence. He and Coughlin are really the only guys who really have to shake on a game. I don't him myself, but a few freinds aho've done at UA and DL who've done Browns/Pats charters, spoke very highly of Bellichick, and from other industry people, he is known to be a very quiet reserved guy, and quite the contrary to all that is said, he's not a poor sportsman. People were surprised at his reaction when they won the first and 2nd Super Bowl. His third was SB postgame reaction was much like last nights loss. A quick, few words, and that was it. He was more happy, and had more to say to Howard Stern the next morning. I'm sure he's making calls to the Giants organization today sending his regards, so relax a tad.

That's easy to say now. But I bet that was one of the toughest snaps Eli took all tnight. With all that pressure, a botched snap is a real possibility. Pats recovering the ensuing fumble and run it back into the endzone- Touchdown and Pats win. It's not unrealistic. It's not like the Giants were up two or more scores, and teams blowing the game on the final snap has happened before. Plus, it prevents the Patriots from later challenging the legitimacy of the game, saying "there was still 1 second left to play".

Not necessarily. But a good leader would stay with his men till the end, which he didn't do. His team was still out there; only playing for a kneel down or not. Funny thing is, I still respected Bill Belichick as a coach and a leader even after the cheating scandal with the video cameras at the beginning of the season. Leading his team to 16-0 in the regular season was a great accomplishment. But my respect for Belichick just dropped significantly after I watched him abandon his team last night.

If your men are out there, you need to be out there too. He obviously missed General Hal Moore's "First man on the field, last one off" lesson in leadership.

Looking at this objectively, I say Bill Belichick made the right call there- and I'm a Giants fan. It wasn't just 5 yards- it was a first down in a VERY close game on what would have been a change of possession. Maybe "cheap" in a sense but within the rules and therefore I feel Belichick, given the circumstances, and the officials reviewing the challenge made the right call.

They can't do that since in their 2001/2002 win the clock was still at 3 or 4 seconds when Vinatieri's field goal went through. The Rams still could have won it on the kickoff. But nobody really cares about that, and they probably wouldn't care about this one either if they had just called the game then.

It's pretty tough to fire a coach who makes it to the Super Bowl, yet alone goes 16-0 in the regular season. I don't see it happening. Heck, Coughlin wasn't even fired last year after backing into the playoffs at 8-8 for the Giants- looked how that turned out. And Belichick this year wasnt anywhere near as bad as Coughlin last year.

If I was the Ram's head coach, I would have protested. All it takes is the kickoff going out-of-bounds. Then you get the ball at the 40, and no time is taken off the clock. Still one shot at the Hail Mary. Long odds but it's the Super Bowl. You play till the end.

Everyone wants top-line players at every position. The Pats have a top-line quarterback, a top-line recieving corps, very good if not top-line runners, a top-line linebacker corps, and a very good secondary. If you can't get a bunch of wins with that team, something is wrong.

But you did get a lot of wins. You got 18 straight of them. Eventually, something isn't going to go right and you're going to lose - that's just the way the game goes. Claiming your own team is bad isn't at all productive, especially when your team was the better team on the field. Even the best teams lose occasionally.

Point being: stop whining.

There couldn't have been a story written better than how last night turned out! So happy for Eli & the G-men and so happy Brady, Bruschi, Moss, and especially Belichick got their asses handed to them!!! Both teams deserved the outcome!!! ESPN Classic material for the next 100 years!!

I've never been a Randy Moss fan. Lost a lot if not all respect for Belichick after last night. Tom Brady is a great quarterback, but it was great to see him go down since it was my team that brought the bringing down.

However, Bruschi is one of the classiest and most respected guys in the league from what I can tell and not a player who's qualities and character on or off the field I would mock.  no

And to Scott Pioli (Pats GM): Get the Pats a secondary. No, really. I'm not talking some BS backup guy you got from some school nobody has heard of. I want top-line shutdown corners. You want to revamp that defense... you just found your answer.

Asante Samuel is pretty darn good. Of course, he's a free agent and probably won't be back. The problem with that secondary is Rodney Harrison. He's Roy Williams Part II, a safety who talks a good game, makes tackles on running plays because he lines up as close to linebacker as is humanly possible to do while still being called a safety, and can't cover a twin bed. The only difference between the two is that earlier in his career, Harrison actually could cover.

What annoyed me about the Patriots was their holier-than-thou attitude about how they claim to be "professional" and "businesslike" and how those superior personal attributes somehow contributed to winning. That, from a team that employs reformed quitter Moss, and unreformed HGH user Harrison. Seriously, think how difficult it must be for NFL guys to get caught for drugs, considering the rampant juicing that must go on and the low rates of discovery?

Poor sportsmanship or a smart way to gain 5 yards? You be the judge.

Let's see. Rules are rules, no? Patriots lost a draft pick (1st round, BTW) for the filming aganst the rules. Same film from some 50 yards away with a bigger lens would have been within the rules.

Is there some reason why he should not allow the Giants to be in violation of the rules (even if it didn't affect the play)? It's the rule. We broke it, and payed the price. Why shouldn't the Giants be penalized for breaking the rule as worded?

Damn, we lost, how much shit do you want to throw on us?

He busted his ass cuz it was handed to him. Yeah I'd get into crying over that. Not to mention that he'll likely be gone next year.

Except in cycling, weight-lifting, baseball, athletics, etc. etc.

Every team or person that wins in sport pushed the rules to the edge, and many times over. You think a team has ever won a football game without a pass interference, illegal block, holding, etc. that didn't get picked up by the officials? "Cheats" win all the time.

Thank f'ing goodness, too.

After watching the interview and the behavior during it of Bellicheck after the game, I will add to the sentiments above me that he is a total asshole. I am glad that it has finally hit them that nobody could ever be perfect in an arrogant way.
