I like coach Belichick more every day. Yesterday he sent 4 players home from practice for being late including Randy Moss and Adalius Thomas. Thomas hasn't performed a single day that he has been in New England, but he felt the need to open his trap yet again. "There's nothing to apologize about," Thomas said today. "You can't run people over. You leave home people are there. What are you going to do? It's not the Jetsons. I can't get up and fly." Blaming the traffic and the weather for being late to an 8AM meeting. Typical Thomas. Figures he brings up the Jetsons. He plays about as big as Elroy.
Belichick is the best because he knows he has a team with a ton of weaknesses, but he still doesn't stand for lack of effort, discipline, subpar performance, and bullshit. Unlike a certain baseball manager in this town, he doesn't allow the inmates to run the asylum. He doesn't allow players to quit on the team like Manny Ramirez did on the Red Sox in 2006 and 2007. I admire Belichick's decisions even if I don't always agree with them. He could probably draft a little better, but even the best GMs only hit on half of their draft choices at best. These players have nothing holding them back to attend an 8AM practice. If they want to buy a $90,000 SUV to drive through the snow, they can do it. If they want to buy 6000 square foot house next to Gillette, they can do it. Their wives don't have to work and they can hire a nanny to take the kids to school and pick them up. There's nothing keeping these players from doing anything. Take your punishment like a man Thomas, and shut your piehole. You love eating humble pie, I'll give you one guess of another thing you can eat. It rhymes with HIT: another thing you haven't done since you've been in Foxboro.
