Speculation from PFT:


SPECULATION CONTINUES THAT BELICHICK IS DONE AFTER 2007

Largely due to the fact that the question of the number of years remaining on New England coach Bill Belichick's contract is guarded almost as closely as the codes for the nuclear football, the unknown status of Belichik's future tenure invites constant speculation.

The current speculation in some league and media circles is that Belichick's contract with the Pats expires after the 2007 season, and that he will leave.  The fact that the Pats have loaded the cannon via free agency and trades, adding folks like linebacker Adalius Thomas and receivers Randy Moss (who coincidentally has a one-year deal), Donte' Stallworth, Wes Welker, and Kelley Washington, has only intensified beliefs that Belichick wants to make a run at a fourth Super Bowl victory before walking away.

But while some think he will retire, others believe that he'll take a new job.  One prominent national media type has suggested to us that Belichick would like to be the first coach to win a Super Bowl in each conference.

To make that happen, Belichick would have to land in the NFC.  The most obvious place for him to go is back to New York, given that he was the defensive coordinator for the Giants when the team won championships in 1986 and 1990.  But some believe that his entanglement with former Giants receptionist Sharon Shenocca will keep the Mara family from approving the move.

The source who thinks that Belichick craves an NFC Super Bowl win thinks that Washington, Dallas, Carolina, and Tampa are the potential destinations.  We'll also throw the Vikings into the mix, since owner Zygi Wilf is a life-long Giants fan who once waited outside of a bathroom to get Lawrence Taylor's autograph.  (We hope L.T. washed his hands before he grabbed the pen.)  Wilf is wise enough to heed the quiet criticism of current coach Brad Childress, even if the rest of the front office is doing their best to prop up the field boss for fear of being run out the door if a guy like Belichick were to come to town.

Anyway, it's all speculation for now.  But unless and until someone says that Belichick is under contract beyond 2007 with the Pats and plans to honor it, the two Bills -- Belichick and Cowher -- should be penciled in at the top of the list for the 2008 coaching carousel.

IMO...

If the Bucs record is 7-9 or higher, current coaching staff stays.

Another double digit losing season, give either Bill whatever they want to come here.

I like Gruden and I think that he will do good and stay in Tampa, But if Tampa was looking for a new coach after this season I would love to get either Belichick and Cowhe.

You know whoever the Glazers choose to replace Gruden (if it comes to that at season's end) they're going to hire a well known name who's had NFL HC success.  They went unproven with Dungy but that worked out very well, but replaced him with the big name in Gruden. 

If Gruden goes at season's end, I'd think Cowher is right at the top of their list as the PR guys have alluded to prior.

If anyone please let it be Belichick. Tell him to bring his talent evaluater Scott Pioloi in.

I wouldnt even want Belichick.   The guy proved what he could do when he was coaching the Browns.   Nothing.   He's a product of that Patriots system.   The ownership and management is to blame for their success, not Belichick.    Gruden puts Belichick to shame.

He's just a puppet up there in New England anyway.    He'd run any defense the Glazers wanted him to run if he came here.   He'd make a good puppet wherever he went.

I'd welcome him anyday here in Tampa even if Gruden saves his job with a great year I say still hire Belichick.

WOW?!?!

One guy thinks  Belichick is a product of the Patriots 'management' system and another guy doesnt want him here b/c he doesnt wanna change from a cover 2.

ummm... i'd like to buy a clue pat.

To say Belichick is overrated or a product of a system is either sour grapes or pure ignorance. The guy has 3 rings. You don't happenstance into 3 superbowl titles.

And the cover 2 crap... when Monte's gone, you think the next h/c, d/c is gonna keep his system here??? Chances are he's going to install his own system. Whether it's a different version of the 4-3 or a different system altogether.

What fantasy world do people live in where they think Bill motherfreakin Belichick would be a bad hire?!?!

Do you think before you write something? For a puppet, THREE SB rings and playoff appearances (how many years in a row?) sure seem to cut any strings that might have been attached. Your golden boy took Dungy's team to the SB - what has he done with the team since '02???????????

I'll give Belichick credit for one thing.   He benched Bernie Kosar and started Vinny Testaverde in Cleveland.

Your post lost all credibility when you mentioned Dungy's team. PR posters are smart enough to know it wasn't Dungy's team.

Maybe he doesn't think before he writes something.  ;)

So you infer that I am stupid? How civil of you to note that.
I suggest you reacquaint yourself with the '02 team, most of the coaching staff AND players were here in '01 and before. I do give Gruden credit for utilizing the talents he had, but again   what has he done since?
