From ProFootballTalk.com via barstoolsports.com:
A league source tells us that there are emerging rumors in NFL circles
linking Patriots coach Bill Belichick to the New York Giants. The
move, per the rumors, would entail a package deal of Belichick and Pats V.P. of player
personnel Scott Pioli.
We don't buy it. Though Pioli clearly is in
play for the Giants G.M. job (although there could be an effort by New England
ownership to block a move), Belichick won't be coaching the Giants
without the blessing of Robert and Jonathan Kraft. And there's no way in
hell that the Krafts will allow both Pioli and Belichick to escape
from the organization.
Despite some speculation in media circles that Belichick's contract might expire after
2006 (including an oddball shot-in-the-dark by Ron Borges that Belichick could end up with the Texans in
2007), Mike Reiss of the Boston Globe recently
reported that 2006 is
not the final season of Belichicks contract.
I don't even know if I can talk about this coherently. This would be a nightmare. How is this even possible? Would the Bulls have traded Michael Jordan? Would the Twins trade Johan Santana? This astounds me.
Just tell a 5 year old there's no such thing as Santa Claus and look at his reaction. That would be my face with this news.
Lets just move on. Nothing to see here.
