Bilicheck has always been that way. He ran off the field on the first superbowl loss to the Giants without waiting for the game to end. He is what he is. Doesn't make him a coach loved anywhere outside of New England, but it also doesn't change the fact that his teams are always in the hunt for the superbowl.
It was classless. As seen in SB's he is a good winner but lousy loser.
Put the Pats in the big boy division, AFC north, and send the Browns over to AFC east. Lets see Pats win 12 or 13 games every year having to play the Ravens, Steelers and Bengals six times a year instead of Bills, Dolphins and Jets.
No doubt Belicheck is a classless creep, but I have to give him one thing (besides being arguably the best coach in the league): clearly he does what he wants and doesn't do what he doesn't want and doesn't give a F what anybody thinks. Obviously he is an antisocial jerk, but there is something to be said for being true to yourself even if your self is utterly reprehensible.
The postgame conversation on the field with Bill Belichick ... Harbaugh: "I'll treasure that conversation forever. Before the game, we talked, and he said maybe we should just skip the postgame handshake because it's such a circus. I said I didn't know; I thought we should do it, it's just the right thing to do. And we did. He was so classy, so gracious. Complimentary about how we played, about our game plan, about how tough it is to play us. I told him how much we pattern our organization around theirs, how much we study them.''
for those of you that didn't catch what Shannon Sharpe said live on the air after Belichick declined the interview
here's a link to what he said
I love me some Shannon Sharpe
When he wins, the coach is called a "genius". I saw very little evidence of genius in punting from the 34 and 35, the early short field goals, and the complete mismanagement of the clock at the end of the first half to settle for another short FG. Who wouldn't want to avoid questions about such brilliant game strategy?
To me, kicking very short FGs in the first half is like bunting in the 1st inning. You might get something, but it likely costs you more.
He "officially" moved the Pats to Hartford CT in early 2000's, leading the then CT Governor Roland, to appear in a press conference with him making the announcement, except, he never intended to move. And what do you know, MA folded, agreed to fund his complex and bye, bye, Hartford, hello Patriot's Place.
