I realized there were issues with Parcells health and departure from the Patriots, the Jets and Belichick's return to the Patriots, but I didn't realize how tricky and sticky it was. The media made it seem like it was all about his heath. Granted, I wasn't watching as closely at the time and Belichick wasn't' even on my radar. . .

Kinda explains why Kraft feels like the NFL owes him. Or owed him, 'cause he's already got a couple of big gifts already. Kraft makes it sound like he was shafted by sidestepping rules that could have cost him more super bowl wins.

And this McDaniels thing smells like they wanted to avoid similar conflicts.


Will this be on again? I was out last night and missed it.

I saw it on my streaming device. Not sure when it airs, but if you have your cable package set up to view on other devices, you could probably see it whenever you want.

It told the history of Belichik and Parcells and how they met. BB was a special teams coach, that moved up the ranks, but Parcells, according Belichick, was his teacher and mentor. But it's obvious BB is a detail football mastermind, but Parcells was best at moving chess pieces around in the big picture. Parcells wouldn't have had success without BB. I was in NYC for the Parcells era, and it doesn't surprise me. They were dominating on defense with L Taylor - who basically said his career went down the toilet when Parcells left. He was the only guy who could keep him under wraps.

At any rate, the jets pulled Parcells away from the Pats in what he described as an underhanded move by the NFL and Jets ownership. Interviewed him and did this behind Krafts back, and supposedly illegally. He got draft picks as compensation orchestrated by Tagliabu, but wasn't ready to hire BB. Insert Pete Carroll. Fast forward a few years later and Kraft takes Belichick away from the jets in 2001 or so, for another set of draft picks, but Parcells tried to block the move by calling him a co-head coach. He wanted to insure Belichick would stay in NYC with the jets. BB and Parcells didn't talk for a while.

But it's curious that BB has been part of changing ownership and weird moves by coaches and cities. Belichick would have a short stint at Cleveland, but they moved to Balt and left him in the lurch. Then the Jets/pats fiasco. But all this talk about Belichick not doing anything in Clev is bullshit. He wasn't there long enough. His system is and brain clearly works wonders for whatever team he coaches.

But the mutual respect and admiration is definitely there - especially since they've patched up the friendship.

Yep me too after watching...dude has now coached in 11 Super Bowls since ‘86, basically 1 out of every 3 in the last 32 years...dude has seen everything and has Ernie the Rainman who remembers everything.

Also, back to the OP, it has been reported by Yahoo sports that McDaniel will indeed return to the Pats next season.

Gotta wonder. Nothing like this has happened since Belichick fucked over the Jets a day after accepting the Jets.
