Bill Belichick Lingered for a Reason

Bill Belichick and Mike McCarthy handshake

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick lingered on Lambeau Field after Sunday’s game, just like he’s probably lingering outside a teenage girl’s bedroom window right now.

Look at that guy. If anyone is handing out free candy from a windowless van, it’s Bill Belichick. That’s not the point here, though.

A number of people have pointed out how Belichick hung around the field for an extra long time to congratulate both Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy and quarterback Aaron Rodgers on their win, Sunday.

This is notable only because usually Belichick gives a half-hearted handshake and then storms off the field as quickly as possible, especially when he loses.

Because he doesn’t care what you think.

But there he was on Sunday, presumably telling McCarthy and Rodgers how great they were after the game. McCarthy was asked about the conversation, but didn’t get too detailed.

“He was very gracious, and that’s about as far as I’ll go,” McCarthy said. “He has set the standard for an NFL head coach, definitely in my time in the league. It’s awesome to go up and compete against his team and no one does it better than what he’s done.”

While all of that’s swell for McCarthy and Rodgers, what should be looked at here is the ulterior motive.

Yes, we’re sure Belichick has respect for the guys who beat his team. We’re also sure there was a reason other than that for buttering those guys up.

There’s a real chance the Packers and the Patriots could meet again in the Super Bowl. Belichick is aware of this. Try to get the other guys to believe their own hype and you’ve created a psychological advantage.

    What?

    1. pf4l December 1, 2014

      Ulterior motive dude..He was “buttering” them up.

      Nothing gets by Monty. Belichick is a mad genius.

    Belichick has gushed all over the Packers all week leading up to and after the game. He knows this isn’t the important one. Monty nailed that in his prediction.

    I agree there was more to this than meets the eye. Perhaps Bill was whispering in Aaron’s ear, “Hey if the Packers ever try to run you out of town in a few years like they did Brett, give me a call. “

    1. pf4l December 1, 2014

      The Packers ran Favre out of town?

      And all this time i thought Favre retired after the 2007 season.

  3. pf4l December 1, 2014

    Yea…That’s why Belichick stayed on the field, not to show McCarthy and Rodgers some respect, but to somehow give his team a psychological advantage if these teams meet in the Super Bowl in 2 months. A guy shaking a guys hand and telling them nice game, will surely get in the Packers heads the day of the Super Bowl if they meet up.

    Pure brilliance.

    Or maybe…….Belichick just showed some class and respect for a well fought game. Something this author, and guest writer E Wolf, probably can’t relate too.

      That’s nice what if they both don’t meet up in the superbowl and the Packers end up crushing someone else in it?????

      1. pf4l December 1, 2014

        Can’t you just let Monty know how smart he is, and leave it at that?

    2. E. Wolf December 1, 2014

      I love how I am under your skin.

    3. You Enjoy Myself December 1, 2014

      Is there any site that wants your comments PF4L….

      1. pf4l December 1, 2014

        Don’t like my comments, then dont read them. The article is stupid. So i called it as such.

  4. Larry lecain December 1, 2014

    Be kind. Always.

    1. Fritz December 1, 2014

      LOL.

  5. E. Wolf December 1, 2014

    He gesture did not appear gracious from afar, based on what one sees on the tv screen.
    I for one do not want to see the Patriots in the Super Bowl. The sooner they get killed off the better. I’d love to see the stats of Super Bowl rematches from the regular season or before. Seems like every time the team that lost in the regular season wins the rematch–with exception of the Ravens beating the Niners in the 12 Super Bowl, who also beat them in the 11 regular season. Giants beat the Patriots twice after losing in the regular season. We lost to the Steelers in 09 (I was there), of course beat them in XLV.

    We need a lips reader. Problem is Belly hardly moves his lips ever when he speaks.
    But I found his lingering strange too though.
    Thought he doesn’t want to move his tongue instead is he?

    1. Fritz December 1, 2014

      LOL 4u2. cant figure why my funnybone has been so tickled by this particular topic and weird responses therein.

  7. jcope December 1, 2014

    Give Monte and Wolf a break. I read this site cause I like a good laugh and might actually learn something. If all you want is white-bread, hackneyed, boring-ass Packer talk then go over to Packers.com and check out Vic and the crew. BTW, E. Wolf’s “Ugliest Disgrace” article on the 29th was pure poetry. So happy I found this site.

    1. E. Wolf December 1, 2014

      Thanks for the kind words–I really appreciate it.
      You–and above all my detractors–can all rest assured about one thing. I am not some milquetoast phoney like Vic Ketchman (who is not really a Packers fan). I am as genuine as I am edgy, and make no apologies for my fanaticism for this team or my invective prose.

      1. Packer Bob December 1, 2014

        Of course he’s not a Packers fan. He’s a sports writer. Something you obviously know nothing about. You want to get “the truth” from some emotional fan who writes at an 8th grade level and resorts to hyperbole to get readers or from a unbiased sports writer with 30 plus years of experience writing for the NFL?

        1. E. Wolf December 1, 2014

          I presume you are referring to Ketchman. He may have been a sportswriter, but working for the Packers he is a mouthpiece for fan relations, feigning enthusiasm for this team. He even attended some of those kitschy pep rallies a couple years ago, that no active player bother attending by the way.

      2. Phatgzus December 1, 2014

        Sorry, Wolf, but to me youre about as edgy as a circle. Ledgy, maybe.

      3. Phatgzus December 1, 2014

        Gamesmanship abounds?

    2. You Enjoy Myself December 1, 2014

      Agreed.

    3. pf4l December 1, 2014

      Pure poetry?
      Yea, the responses in that article seem to reflect that. Good call.

    4. Packer Bob December 1, 2014

      This site is certainly good for a laugh but you’re not going to learn anything here. At least not from Monty. But if you want to read contrived, acrimonious bullshit then this is your place.

    5. Mr. Hankey December 1, 2014

      Dude, get Wolf’s dick out of your mouth.

    6. billybong December 1, 2014

      i got blackballed over there can’t comment anymore because i said Vic the cheerleader ketch man was a pompous ass who talks down to anyone who asks any question that isn’t rah rah Packers are great kind of question….i know he’s paid by the Pack but he was the same at Jacksonvill, not that well liked…he’s a turd…you will never read anything in the slightest critical by anyone including fans who write in…if you do your the stupidest person and not a Packer fan….try it, you’ll see…

  8. Carlos Goodman December 1, 2014

    I would bet Vic Ketchman has gotten more trim than Montgomery and that dude is 5’2 106 and used to cry when he got tackled.

    Perhaps E. Wolf isn’t a real person. Perhaps E. Wolf died years ago after hijacking an airplane and parachuting out the back. Then Alex Jones from Infowars.com, who is a friend of Robert Kraft, took his name as a second identity in order to manipulate currency markets, precious metals prices, and the world economy, and to supply secret information to Bill Belichick, an avowed member of the Illuminati. Perhaps the persona of E. Wolf was created just to sow seeds of doubt into the minds of anyone who should oppose the the New England Patriots empire. Now he is making you guess, second guess, and third guess the motivation of the evil genius that is Bill Belichick.

    1. E. Wolf December 1, 2014

      I assure you I am very real. And in case you did not notice most all of the ire directed towards me was from Pats fans who ostensibly have never even heard of this site before. That means my words resonate, otherwise there would not be such uproar. And if I am putting doubt in anyone’s minds with that piece, it is in the minds of Patriots fans. One guy, who pulled out the Nazi accusation, said he was fighting off tears he was so upset what I wrote. GOOD!

      1. Mr. Hankey December 1, 2014

        Ah, the Fox Valley Tech education is coming out!

        Wolfina = Grade A Douche Bag.

  10. Paranoid in Seattle December 1, 2014

    I’m just speculating here.

    1. pf4l December 1, 2014

      lol…Perhaps E Wolf has a few accounts under different user names that so he can brag about the few people who back him. Everyone else, thinks he’s a moron.

  11. TyKo Steamboat December 1, 2014

    2 of the best coaches in the NFL … so it’s very notable

  12. Packer Bob December 1, 2014

    Wow, you just can’t handle the truth that the “Buffoon” might be a pretty damn good coach. Because then you’d have to admit that you were wrong and that you’ve wasted the last couple years of your life trying to prove otherwise.

    That’s just sad, man. Do you even want the Packers to win a Superbowl? Or would you rather they lose so can write another meaningless blog on how McCarthy is a loser.

    It’s time to give up, dude. You’ve lost all credibility. Save face while you still can.

  13. Some guy December 1, 2014

    Didn’t Doug Buffoon used to play for the Bears?

  14. Abe Frohman December 1, 2014

    Time for a little common sense to enter into things. BB tried VERY hard to win this game. Losing it could mean having to go to say Denver and play the Broncos on the road for a trip to the big show. Brady said this was an important win and they wanted it badly. That’s why he was so upset.

    Given that, how moronic is it to think that BB blowing smoke up MM’s ass has any redeeming quality for the next time they may meet? Monty, do you really think “Buffoon” is going to say “well, we beat ’em pretty good last time. No point in game planning this time around. We will just go with the same old shit we’ve been running for years. That oughta be good enough.” Or does it seem more reasonable for MM to acknowledge that the Pats are a very good team and he’s working his ass off to try and beat them again?

    1. pf4l December 1, 2014

      Wow, a voice of reason. Refreshing.

  15. ...what? December 5, 2014

    This has got to be a joke, or a troll job, right? Wow. Especially with that tasteless “Belechick waiting outside a teenage girls window with candy” comment. Pretty disgusting.

    Belechick may not be the face of a classy man, but this author sure as hell isn’t doing anything to prove what ‘classy’ is, either.
