Belichick, Inside the hood !

If you had to pick one coach to get miked up for an entire season to produce a two-part NFL Films documentary, it would, quite obviously, be Bill Belichick, right?

Ha, exactly. Of course it wouldn't. But it is -- Belichick, in a commercial that aired during Monday night's Jets-Giants game on NFL Network, is shown like he's never been seen before, as NFL Films followed him around for the entire 2009 season, his 35th year in coaching and the Patriots 50th anniversary season.

"Bill Belichick doesn’t only make history – he studies it; he understands his place in it; and he appreciates our desire to capture it," said NFL Films President Steve Sabol. "Like Vince Lombardi’s Packers in 1967, Belichick and the Patriots gave us access to his football life and what we created is a portrait of the coach, the father, the taskmaster – and most importantly – the man."

No, He's not Americas coach nor does he coach Americas team but the enigma behind Bill Belichick is as  prodigious and covert as any Robert Ludlum Novel ! The controversary with the alleged spying and stealing plays from his adversaries to the genius mind that does not just overcome the obvious but the detailed planning right down to who will be listed as doubtful on the starters list for Sunday afternoon football even though there is nothing wrong with that player to begin with !

Belichick has redefined the psychological war both on the playing field and off ! Anything that give his team an edge he will find it and utilize it to his advantage for Bill Belichick is anything but one dimentional !  I'm not a Beichick fan by no means but even I can't deny the mans intellect and diverse reasoning in a game that has become more complex and demanding than most if not all sports today !

It is my wish that we all take a look at Belichick in a different light when the documentary aires which I don't have a time frame on at this particular time. Until then, See ya !
