Belichick Kicks 4 Players Out of Practice for Tardiness

Coming off their first 2-loss streak in 57 games, you’d hope that the Patriots were dedicating themselves to rediscover their swagger. Instead, with snow swirling around Boston today 4 players arrived late to an 8 AM meeting and were sent home. It’s not like Wednesday is one of the most important days of practice or anything, so I can see why they didn’t show on time. It’s also not like these are professional athletes with limited responsibilities beyond SHOWING UP TO PRACTICE!

Of the players in question, I’m not astonished that defensive end Derrick Burgess was no-show, after all, that’s exactly what he’s done on the field all season. Has he even been playing, because I feel like I have nearly the exact same stats as him for the season. Among the other players missing was Adalius Thomas, the highest paid defensive player on the team who has never lived up to the contract he signed and the expectations that came with it. He won’t be with the team next season for certain, but at least pretend like you care. Middle linebacker Gary Guyton was another of the tardy players, and from a young player like that, who was an undrafted free agent I expect more. This is a guy who has had to bust his ass to get where he is, don’t get lazy now!

And lastly, the final late player was one Randy Moss. Yes, Randy has been a model citizen in his time with the Patriots, yes the weather IS bad but there is simply no acceptable excuse for him to be late unless he has video footage of him singlehandedly pulling a school bus full of children out of a snowbank. This is the same Randy who put up little effort to prevent an interception in the end zone on Sunday, and who has been dominant for stretches and then non-existent in others. C’MON RANDY, you’re better than that.



Belichick Wears a Mic

I love insider-y stuff, getting the chance to listen to Bill Belichick on the sidelines during a game is exactly the type of thing I’m interested in.Now, obviously the audio gets edited by the NFL before they release it, but it still is a totally cool way to see/hear/understand the game, particularly from a football genius like Belichick. I’d love someday to be the guy in the truck who gets to hear the whole, unadulterated version because I bet THAT is super-interesting. Oh well.



They’re Friendster Friends Too

The friendship between Bill Belichick and Jon Bon Jovi was on display at yesterday’s Patriots training camp and it always makes me laugh. Can you imagine two more disparate┬ápeople?

What do they talk about? Can I hang out too?



Belichick Gets Mic’d for Practice

This video from isn’t super informative, but it was interesting to see parts of Bill Belichick at practice with the Patriots. I especially like when he’s talking to Jerod Mayo and asks him why he needs another car and Randy Moss yells out, “that’s first round money!” I also really appreciate Belichick asking Mayo if he wants to get a Volvo and Mayo saying, “nope!” Anyhoo, enjoy!

Ok, the video for some reason isn’t embedding, but go to the link above, or click HERE and you can see the video on the NFL website.


Thank God He Was Caught

Herbert Alex Simpson was arrested by federal authorities after trying to blackmail NY Giants coach Tom Coughlin regarding a supposed threesome sex tape that Simpson possessed. Fortunately the authorities were able to stop Simpson before he was able to reveal such an awful tape. Of course, Coughlin denies any such tape ever existing, as do the two women reportedly in it, who were co-workers of Simpson and who also claim to never have even met Coughlin. Sounds like they both protest too much. Regardless, people can say the federal government doesn’t do much for us these days, but this act of heroism to prevent such a tape, were it to exist, from EVER coming to the light is an act of true selflessness and one that I salute. Of course, this is all on the heels of the reported Bill Belichick sex tape which would ALSO be awful for the eyes. I am pretty certain this is a historic off-season, in that it is the first time both Super Bowl head coaches have been linked to sex tapes. Based on the general corpulence and homeliness of the head coaches in the NFL, this is something for which we can all be thankful. I do hear though that the Andy Reid furry video is one for the ages…
