She's trying to state a debate on Belichick. I'm not feeding into it.
Absolutely correct. That's the motivation behind virtually everything she posts. What's insulting is that she seemingly doesn't think anyone will see through it, She doesn't give 2 shits about Sean Payton's coaching prowess, or a Jimmy G. going 7 for 7 to start yesterday or Chandler Jones beginning his game early with 3 sacks. Every post is like this little mystery game where she tries to be complimentary toward someone she really doesn't care about one iota. It's embarrassing, but narcissistic idiots are never genuinely embarrassed.

Sure. It's a shot at Bill and not the fact that we have to play the Saints in 2 weeks which most thought would be an easier game on our schedule because Brees retired. Nope. Payton has Winston and that offense smoking and that was without Michael Thomas.

McD is the offensive coordinator

He's a top 5 active coach, maybe top 3 even. I will say, their SB win over the Colts was one of the best and gutsiest SB coaching jobs ever.

Sean Payton is definitely in the top 5 for the best coaches in the NFL. However Sean was operating with a maxed out credit card as far as the salary cap and still couldn't get it done with a HOF caliber QB. Winning regular season games isn't exactly the most impressive thing to me. In my eyes Sean Payton is on the level of a Mike Tomlin or a Pete Carroll. The team should be glad they have him instead of the Mike McCarthys or Freddie Kitchens of the world, a rare talent, but can't get it done consistently even with elite talent and unlikely to make it into the HOF.
brees will be in the h.o.f. BECAUSE of payton. he was a good qb who was maximized by how sean designed his offense.

Much like BB and TFB they were a great team and complimented each other.

yes...but sean's weakness has always been his inability to pick defensive coaches/coach that side of the ball. so brees got hof stats with him, but because bb is better all around, tb got wins.

I agree. They were down 10-0 in that SB.

Way too many playoff flameouts

My first thought, too. I like Payton a lot but if he's so damn good why is his post season resume filled up with Wildcard and Divisional losses with only 1 breakthrough to the SB?
What he is is a pretty straight shooter who knows how to coach the QB position. That's his specialty. Under Parcells with the Cowboys he got 3000 yds out of Vinny Testeverde. That was impressive but he's also responsible for the Cowboys drafting Tony Romo. I don't know how I feel about that.
.
Amazing coaching job to come back from that deficit. Unreal even!
Great setup

so i wonder how great sean would be if his team came back from say, 28-3 in a sb? :coffee:
Even greater finish!

She never saw it coming.

Yeah, Bounty Gate didn't help his cause either. I know that it's BS like the Pats Gate(s), but, his defensive coordinator's weren't exactly awesome like you said.

Not ironic or a stretch at all. It was clear with the best coach in football comment that she was baiting a debate.

Mazz is NOT a female Patriots "fan". Rather, Mazz is the invention of a Boston radio dipshit.

They are all dipshits.
