Lawrence Taylor = Bill Belichick?

Greg Garber, senior writer for ESPN.com, said this, in “To explain Belichick, go to the tape”:

When details of the signal-stealing emerged a few weeks ago, I thought of something Belichick once told me about Taylor. Despite his bouts with drug use and his sometimes messy personal life, Taylor always gave his best effort — such that it sometimes was — on the field.

“Lawrence completely sells out on every play,” Belichick said. “He doesn’t care about his body — or anyone else’s for that matter. He will do anything it takes to win. Anything.

“The same thing that makes him [an unlikable] human being,” Belichick added in a telling aside, “makes him one of the greatest players who ever lived.”

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. I believe the same is true of Bill Belichick.

And forget all those quotes about character.

    Wow!! hoe ridiculous !!! who cares about Bill bellicheck and Brady and for that matter the NFL as a whole. It’s an entertainment game and like all entertainment it is most obviously rigged to provide the greatest amount of proceeds or to the highest bidder. Point in Question, the pats 2 games in 05, 06 playoffs to be able to obtain an un defeated record for 07 until the senators got involved .
    The Pats probably may have won both 05, 06 season but negotiated a deal for an 07 undefeated season . In addition the NFL made them repay the Superbowl win if 2001 which was a patriotic win for sure.
    Due to this demise and neglect of contract that the pats had with the NFL to go undefeated and that Ton brady , who is well in the midst of it, was so upset he wouldn’t play the next season , no not even 1 quarter of it , even in the preseason he did not play to show the NFL that he wasn’t happy that they gave up possibly 2 championships for the undefeated 07 season.
    Didn’t anyone notice when the pats lost to the colts,who went on to win the big one were up 20-3 at halftime, then practically sat still cuz the colts were so bad they couldn’t have beat a high school team at the time . The pats blamed it on the flu lol .plus when I saw all the pro manning commercials before the playoffs that years I knew they were gonna give to him because he was owed one. Also that year when the pats plated at Baltimore and had 4 4th downs to win the game , even as a pat fan i was disgusted !
    Come on people it is a half a trillion dollar a year entertainment money maker , and that’s what we can count .
    I can show and name countless games , not just in the NFL that are fixed . But hey, you guys go on telling it how it supposed to be, but not what in reality that it actually is .
    I know the truth, but my question is ? how many out there truely know that the NFL fixes games, not all but too many to make it a game that will last a lifetime . As for me i know the truth and see it almost every weekend. Why do you think they keep the pass interference call unreviewable ? It gives up the most yards, it’s the most controversial call in the game and it’s a game changer .
    I don’t care to reveal that what I say is true . I know it is !
    It’s the NFL that needs to care if what i saw is true !
    You decide . I already know . I can back it up with surprizing testimonies .
    Let’s get it on !
    As for the rest of sports , don’t worry , I have it on you also .
    Best Regards
    Bob
