DATELINE: Turn of the Screw?
Hit Man Hit
Yikes! Babe McDaniels will not leave the New England Patriots.
What gives? You may wonder why or how someone comes to the decision to back out of a promotion to head coach of the Indianapolis Colts.
The team that created treachery by accusing Tom Brady of “Deflategate” was about to introduce Josh McDaniels at a press conference in the morning—when he changed his mind.
Yes, on the heels of a dozen present and former players sending out supporting tweets on behalf of Malcolm Butler, whom Belichick benched for no good reason during the Super Bowl, and all against Bill Belichick, we have the offensive coordinator, and close friend of Tom Brady, reneging on a deal to coach the Colts.
We haven’t seen this sort of machination since—gulp hard, fans, since Bill Belichick reneged on the Jets!
History is repeating itself. But why?
Can it be that Belichick is closer to leaving the Patriots than anyone can possibly imagine by hook or crook?
Can it be that Robert Kraft has indeed sweetened the pot to keep Josh McDaniels—by promising him the job as head of the Patriots in the near future?
If Bill Belichick is leaving, Josh would be the natural choice to succeed him and keep Brady in clover for a few more years.
We are among those who are now thinking that the house of cards constructed by Swami Belichick has dry rot.
We are among those who wonder how much longer Belichick will be coaching in Foxboro. Is it retirement that drives him, or a job with another team?
Shock waves usually create a tsunami. Head for the high ground because we think that Foxboro may be inundated shortly and deeply.
