    OK, I am going to ask the question: Has BB lost his fastball?

    Not hiring coordinators also lets the team avoid league rules for interviewing outside and minority candidates and instead bring in the same people who were already in their Rolodex.

    Brian Flores suing NFL, Giants over "sham" Rooney rule - "mistakenly" (?) sent Belichick text may be linchpin

    I’ll go a little further and say that Belichick is one of the most egregious examples of a related problem - not as it relates specifically to race but in how he presents job opportunities and to whom. Two of his sons Al Groh’s son Mike Lombardi’s son Ron Wolf’s son Hiring back former...

    Brian Flores suing NFL, Giants over "sham" Rooney rule - "mistakenly" (?) sent Belichick text may be linchpin

    Wasn’t Lynn just handed a job by a long term friend? This seems like a weird example.

    2022 coaching carousel

    Dave DeGuglielmo in 2014. With him, Dean Pees, and Dom Capers, the list of outside hires is eerily similar to the list of coaches Belichick has let go.

    2022 Pats Free Agent period

    Based on his performance as a rookie, I think Belichick may have been ready to IR him with a hangnail. It was alarming just how often and easily he got spun round and pushed out of running lanes.

    Pats offense: Ongoing discussion

    Just to be fair - and I'm not saying he's a great coach as his average job lasts less time than a Tik Tok - the Patriots did win a Super Bowl with him as O-line coach, and the line was destroyed with injuries in his second/final year. Brian Flores, Joe Judge, and Josh McDaniels each later hired...

    Super Wildcard Weekend Gamethread

    Ah, I forgot about that replay and that makes sense. I do think Pittman was going forward and they ran two seconds off after he was out though.

    Super Wildcard Weekend Gamethread

    With :28 left on the clock, the clock started when Rivers yelled ‘ready’, two seconds before the snap. The play went out of bounds at 0:21, then kept running down to 0:19. Then the clock started again as soon as the ball was placed, running down to 0:15 at the snap. What the hell?
