I think we’re getting into bromance territory with New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick and Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy.
Belichick, who is usually short and grumbly when asked a question, had quite a bit to say about McCarthy when he was asked about the Packers coach at the NFL meetings on Tuesday.
Most notably, that he’s one of the best in the league.
“Well, I mean, first of all, I’d say Mike’s one of the best coaches in the league, one of the best coaches I’ve ever gone up against,” Belichick said. “I’m sure whatever he’s doing is the right thing. I have a lot of respect for him. I’m sure whatever decisions he’s making for the Green Bay Packers are good ones and ones that he thinks are right. I personally wouldn’t question anything he does.”
Coming from Belichick, that’s a mouthful.
This bromance seemingly started back in November, when the Packers beat the Patriots at Lambeau Field.
After the game, Belichick made it a point to heap praise on McCarthy, which he usually doesn’t do for any opponent. He and McCarthy also lingered for a time at midfield after the game, exchanging pleasantries.
That’s notable because Belichick is usually walking the other direction before he’s even released the grip of his postgame handshake.
But not with Mike.
Bill loves him some Mike McCarthy.
High praise from someone with 4 rings!!
Ooooh boy, can’t wait to see how Fritz, MMTT, and the rest of the Looney Tunes cast spin this one.
figure this one out: why would Wellington praise Napoleon AFTER waterloo? would you expect him to say something like: Napoleon was eliminated as a threat due to his own choking incompetence, etc…
see, it had NOTHING to do with us, or our army… we were facing certain annihilation, but then, as luck would have it, the grande armee imploded inexplicably.
i shouldn’t have to explain that to anybody over the Ann Coulter “liberal age limit” which is what, 3 years old, Phats?
Then why doesn’t he laud every coach he’s ever lost to, lik Rex Ryan, for example? Don’t gimme that shit, Fritz, you ain’t dealing with no sawn-off 12-guage-firing, possum eating, Levi-Garrett-chewin’, run-of-the-mill hillbilly. Nice fuckin’ try tho, professor.
As much as I disdain Belichick as a human being, I will say one thing–he would not have allowed the debacle in Seattle to unfold as it did.
and that is why he loves MM — who choked his way out of getting the Pats for dessert in the SB; thereby giving the Pats a chance, a small chance, to take, no, “steal” a ring from the mighty NFC entry this year.
Yeah I dunno about that with Rodgers being as injured as he was.
I think nice guys finish last in today’s NFL.Go Pack Go!!!
