Media Turns on Bill Belichick – Other NFL Thoughts

Bill Belichick

Wow, what a week it’s been in the NFL, right? From the Jets delivering a stunner against the Eagles to undefeated giants falling, the league is as unpredictable as ever. Whether it’s the media turning on Bill Belichick or Cincinnati showing signs of life, we’ve got it all covered. So, let’s dive into this whirlwind NFL week’s biggest stories, stats, and surprises!

– It’s been a while since the J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets won a game against as impressive an opponent as the Eagles. This could be a season-changing win for a team that now has three games in a row against teams that are .500 or worse.

– One of the most impressive stats from Sunday’s win is the Jets held Philadelphia to just 80 yards rushing. The Eagles were winning on the ground, and they are still second in the league at 150 yards per game rushing.

– The Jets won Sunday with only 244 yards of total offense. It’s yet another testament to how important turnovers are to winning. The Jets didn’t turn it over, and they took the ball away four times.

– It didn’t come into play Sunday, but Robert Saleh needs to be better at end-of-half and end-of-game situations. After the interception to set up the winning score, the Jets should have forced Philadelphia to take their timeouts and drain the clock as much as possible. The Jets did neither. Philadelphia let Breece Hall walk untouched into the end-zone. It was the right play for the Eagles, who then had plenty of time and timeouts with a chance to win the game.

– Injuries are still the biggest story of the season thus far. Both undefeated teams fell this week after suffering key injuries. The Niners dropped their first game of the season after losing Christian McCaffrey, Deebo Samuel, and Trent Williams. The Eagle offense is not the same without offensive tackle Lane Johnson, who left after being rolled up from behind in the Eagles’ loss to the Jets.

– You know things are bad when the media turns on media darling Bill Belichick. Belichick is on the hot seat if you listen to the major outlets. I have a hard time believing Billy Boy is going to be shown the door. I do think the warmth emanating under offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien’s bottom is quite a few degrees hotter than his boss’s. The Patriots are 27th in total offense, and only the Giants score fewer points per game than New England, who put up just 12 points per contest.

– The games in London have been a success for the NFL. Tickets were sold out shortly after going on sale, and there is talk of London being a contender for a future Super Bowl. I’m not sure I like that idea any more than the average Londoner would like it if the championship game of the Premier League was played here in the States.

– The Bengals may have overcome their early season issues. They have won each game where they have held their opponent to 20 points or less. They lost each game where their opponent scored more than 20 points. The schedule will let us know exactly how far the Bengals have come from their 0-2 start. Cincinnati travels to San Francisco this week; then the Bengals host Buffalo on national television.

– CJ Stroud appears ready to break the recent string of Ohio State quarterback busts. Stroud is 3rd in passing yards and 9th in passer rating.

– Most fans would assume that the Miami Dolphins are winning with big plays in the passing game, but Miami is running it for over 185 yards per contest. With the Bills’ uneven play and their rash of injuries, Miami has become the clear frontrunner in the AFC East.

– After only five games, two teams (Detroit and Philadelphia) already have two-game leads in their division. The league will start to spread out earlier this year than most as the good and healthy start pushing ahead from the many bad and injured teams.

– Sean Payton is in the “finding out” part of the equation today.

”You ready to go back to the playoffs?! You ready to go back to the Super Bowl?! Well, lemme’ tell you something: Get ready!”

then goes into a big monologue about feet

If the local and national media were not cowards and totally terrified of Bellichick they would have been taking him to task years ago for his awful gming and of course last year for the whole total botch job on offense.

These dudes and dudettes are always two years late to the party.

Disagree on the end of game scenario.  If the Jets were winning I agree to not score but with being behind I take the points when given.  Imagine if they fumble or botch the field goal.  The Eagles had to get a touchdown, let the defense win the game which they did.  I think the Eagles botched it by letting us score.  They could have used their timeouts, held the Jets to a field goal and still have over a minute to win the game with a field goal of their own.  

Or Wilson takes a knee 3 times and then with seconds left they kick a FG.

Eagles never have the ball again so 0 chance for them to win.

And yes BB is stinking bum of a person.

Not only his performance as gm or coach but he's just miserable at press conferences... can't understand how the folks that cover this team could deal with it all these years

There was 1:45 left and Eagles had two timeouts. Eagles would have gotten the ball back down 1 with 55 seconds and no timeouts. Plenty of time for a FG.

I would rather defend against a TD when the other team has 1:40 and 2 TOs than a FG with 55 seconds and no TO.

If we could have run the clock all the way down, take the knees and the FG. But we couldn’t in that situation. Either way the Eagles get the ball back with a chance to win. I would rather be up 6.

And yes, BB is a stinking bum of a person. Agreed 100%.

I have been wondering of there is anyone left that NE can beat besides a Zach Wilson led Jets team. 

The Patriots have the Commanders, Colts and Giants n a couple of weeks.  Before and afterwards, they are at a deficit at QB or a great D.

It would be soooooo sweet if Zach can be the one to stick the dagger in this frauds career and send him st8 to nfl oblivion week 17 🤣

Yes it would, especially if it’s after Aaron and the defense hang a six pack on them and we sit Aaron to rest for playoffs as Zach go’s in for mop up and victory formation. This is how it is in the world  of this fatman,

The Tom Brady Reality Tour, where you learn that HCs and OCs are only as good as their HOF QB lets them be.

Beli the coach is great, if you want to admit it or not. Yea, he had brady but most HOF coaches had a HOF QB. With that being said, Belicheck the GM, is not good. Brady was carrying mediocre offenses for a lot of seasons. The guy has proven over and over again that his decision making in the draft is sub par at best. Yea, he's hit, but who wouldn't when you have that many drafts? the misses though, have always been headscratchers. From basically 2013 and on, the patriots haven't hit on a first round pick, have had the pick taken away, or didn't have one. Brady was covering up belichecks inabilities to hit on the different makers, especially on the offensive side of the ball. The most baffling for him is the WRers he's drafted. Without the elite QB to carry his teams, his weaknesses as a GM have been exposed. As good of a coach as he is, you can't win without talent.

And this is the Jets we're talking about - you know they would have botched the FG attempt. You take the TD there, especially since you've been allergic to them

Kick a fg eh?  Like the short chip shot that philly missed a few minutes earlier?

It is nothing short of insane to lay down and not score unless you are winning and can run out the clock.

This field goals are autonomic theory by people I cannot fathom at all.

Winning made it easier for them to tolerate. Things will change rapidly now.

Why are people stuggling with this? You 100% score there. You CANNOT run out the clock Philly has 2 TOs. So either you give them the ball with 55s to 1 min needing 30 yards for a game winning FG, or 1:40 with 2 TOs but they have to score a TD. TD is far less likely. Kneeling would only being the case if you can run out the clock. It was a HORRIBLE decision by the Eagles

This is completely wrong. The Eagles decision was horrible. It made it far harder for them to have any chance of winning the game especially against the Jets defense. We CANNOT run out the clock and just having less time on the clock is not the guiding principle. If we kneel twice and give them the ball with 55 seconds, ONE missed play and the Eagles have a FG try. Needing a touchdown the Jets have to miss at least 2 or 3 plays for Philly to score a TD. It is amazing how often people including their coach get this wrong.

If great HC need HoF QB’s, how can you distinguish between coaches? How many superbowls does Rex win if he had Tom Brady as his QB? Rex is BB equal as a defensive coach.

All these coaches who are supposed to be great were carried by their QBs. As Sean Payton is finding out.

I’m reserving the term great HC for those coaches who were also innovative on their side of the ball. Bill Walsh was a great HC for example. Not only did he win super bowls (of course with HoF QBs) but he invented the WCO.

BB will be a HoF coach. His a good coach who had the GOAT at QB.
