    A reality check

    I think, perhaps, we need a reality check.

    Pat Williams, Smoot, Sharper, Nap, will all have huge impacts. Nate Burleson's rise will continue. Daunte Culpepper will still put up great numbers. Our O and D may both be top 10 for the first time in a long time.

    Our coach is still named Mike Tice.

    The Patriots don't win because they go out and make huge free agency splurges. They win because as long as Bill Belichick is anywhere near their sideline, they will be an amazing team.

    Our coach still doesn't know his butt from a hole in the ground. We don't create Asante Samuels and Tom Bradys, because we don't have the coaching to do so. If Bill Belichick had Brian Williams he wouldn't have gone out and gotten Fred Smoot - he'd have made Brian Williams into the corner that would consistently play as he did when he shut down Terrell Owens.

    Re: A reality check

    If thats the case then why didnt the cowboys make the playoffs last year, why didnt joe gibbs make the playoffs..


    Belichick was a prodigy of parcells and he aint doin swuat in dallas.

    Belichick is gifted and probalbly the best coach in the league, but make no mistake the patriots have very solid players on that team.

    Tice is a good coach, he has some issues with game managment but you cant blame him for all of the past strugles.

    By the way Illini are gonna loose to louisville because Pitino is a lot better coach than bruce webber according to your example on what makes a championship team.

    I will have say Bilichelk had a lot to do with their 3 SB's. But, a lot more factors have to be considered than just him.

    MY sentiments exactly!!!! We had our good year in 1998 and the Ravens swooped Billick up the very next year...the offensive playcalling has suffered since then! The lucky a$$ Patsies got to keep BOTH of their coordinators for years...now let's see them sink back to the bottom!!!

    Good luck trying to convince everyone of that. I have been saying it since day one. Like everything there is a balance that is needed, it isn't just one aspect of the game that will push you over the top. There are so many things that need to fall into place for teams to be successful.

    But you are 100% correct. It's a fact. Ask Dan Snyder

    VERY FUNNY!! LOL

    But seriously, Tice in not a BAD coach. This coach, working for this cheap a$$ owner, has done a tremendous job!!!!!!!!! If you follow football and the Vikings, you'd know that they don't even have as many assistant coaches as other team. How can ANYBODY critisize that?????? Have you forgot who the owner is? He fired Denny Green who only missed the playoffs once or twice!!!!! WHY dosen't more people talk about what a worthless owner he is.

    PS I'm not saying that Tice is a GREAT coach, just that he deserves a fair chance. The whole team does. A salary cap is in place to keep things fair and equal, McCombs is robbing fans of that hope!

    Tice haters need a reallity check.
