There are 7 comments on the Rant Sports story from May 16, 2014, titled Tom Brady, Not Bill Belichick, Is The Reason For The New England Patriots' Success. In it, Rant Sports reports that:

In the wake of the 2014 NFL Draft , two things have become blatantly obvious. The New England Patriots should replace head coach Bill Belichick , and it should be overwhelmingly evident that the Patriots' success has more to do with Tom Brady than it ever had to do with Belichick.

If Bill Belichick is trying to convince us he is nuts, he gets my vote.. He passed on bringing into camp a top 10 talent in Colt Lyerla, a TE (Oregon) who meets a critical need, because he has been identified as a cocaine user in the past. Yet he has asked Nu'Keese Richardson, a 160 pound 5'10" receiver (Tennessee) who has no stats to speak of, into camp, a player that has been involved in an attempted robbery, driving without a license and then failing to show up at court.
So to summarize...Belichick passes on a great talent who can give the Pats a shot at the Super Bowl who has some baggage (hurts himself), while accepting a guy who would never make the draft board under any circumstance and who has more and worse baggage (hurts others).
Highly suggest Belichick be checked for tutors of the cerebral variety.

If it wasn't for Tom Brady, Belichick would simply be just another Wade Phillips.

I can see that, give or take a little. Good insight.

But you do. Spy cameras had zilch to do with any Pats victories. It was all about Belichick trying to get into everyone's head. Pats were allowed to film from a designated spot. They strayed from that spot but the strange thing was that they stood out in the open because they wanted to be seen as a psychological ploy, Belichick playing head games. His cameras were also empty because he didn't want o break any rules, just mess with opponents heads. His problem is arrogance. Then the rest of the league did it too, only they used film. But no one could figure out how the repositioning of the cameraman gave them any kind of an advantage. Mangini broke a cardinal rule of football is turning Belichick in for what he was doing himself. The bizarre end result had a new Commissioner, who wanted to make a name for himself, deciding that the guy who didn't break any rules (Belichick had no film in his cameras) would get hammered while the rest of the league would get a pass although they were actually guilty, just to send a message to the league owners and coaches that the new guy in town had the power and would use it however he wanted. Belichick's arrogance is only out distanced by the Commissioners thirst for power. And you sir are a pawn of the media.

Great article. Thanks for taking the comments I made over the last few years and puting them together in a montage. You left out that Belichick is great at teaching and scheming so should be limited to these areas and that Robert Kraft has been asleep on the job by giving Belichick a free hand. Also left out that if either Kraft doesn't wake up or Belichick doesn't delegate the personnel function, that Brady should demand a trade to someone like the 49ers, his boyhood favorite and a team currently messing up because of the QB position. Otherwise not a bad job at all. Could have also added that the Pats current needs have been overlooked by Belichick, like a speed receiver who can stretch the field and a couple of TEs who can catch and block. All in all not a bad article. Taking credit for someone else's work however seems a bit low.
Flatulence Fred

A federal employee was formally reprimanded this month for excessive workplace flatulence, a sanction that was delivered to him in a five-page letter that actually included a log of representative dates and times when he was recorded “releasing the awful and unpleasant odor” in his Baltimore office.

In a December 10 letter accusing him of “conduct unbecoming a federal officer,” the Social Security Administration employee was informed that his “uncontrollable flatulence” had created an “intolerable” and “hostile” environment for coworkers, several of whom have lodged complaints with supervisors.
