They had about the same chance of accomplishing their goal that year.

None. Neither team had any chance to compete for a Super Bowl that year.

I see both Belichick and Brady as being instrumental to their dynasty. Not one over the other, but hand in glove. Like Bill Walsh/Joe Montana.

But if you want to separate, here is something for you to digest:

Belichick has amassed 187 regular season wins as a head coach. His teams have a record of 136-39 with Tom Brady as the starting quarterback. Without Brady, he's 51-65.

So for all Belichick's genius (and I am a big fan), has a losing record as HC without Tom Brady on the field.

And you do realize who was still on the team and mentoring Matt Cassel to be a better QB in 2008, yeah?

Learning from Tom Brady pays off for Matt Cassel

“Tom is a guy that has been a mentor to me since the day I walked into the league,” he said.

To me belichick and Brady are like Phil and his stars. Obviously a great coach, but when you add a special player or two they both benefit and become better.

I think it's difficult to separate the two. I don't think Brady would be "Brady" without Belichick & like DoubleBarrel says, Belichick wasn't that hot without Brady.

You see what Kubiak's done, would you think he's a "great" coach if Keenum turns into the next Brady?

Judge impounds records in homicide probe near Hernandez home


************************************************** ***********
From PFT:

Quote:
According to Nick Underhill of MassLive.com, Hernandez has hired Jamie Sultan, an experienced criminal defense lawyer whose experience fits Herndanez’s potential needs more closely than that of Michael Fee, the big-firm white-collar criminal defense specialist. Per Underhill, Sultan was seen leaving Hernandez’s home on Tuesday. Fee separately told Underhill that Sultan’s firm is serving as co-counsel.

Sultan, with an undergraduate degree from Yale and a law degree from Harvard, has more than 30 years experience defending clients against criminal charges and, as his online bio explains, “fend[ing] off charges against clients under investigation.”

For now, Hernandez needs some good fending. Eventually, he may need some good defending. Either way, Sultan’s experience suggests that he’s better equipped than Fee to handle the situation.

Patriots’ Aaron Hernandez paid a visit by high-powered defense attorney James L. Sultan at home

Quote:
James L. Sultan, a prominent defense attorney, paid a visit to Hernandez's residence for about 30 minutes.

Sultan's profile on his firm's website noted that "some of his most recent successes include appellate reversals of first degree murder convictions." Those cases were in 2011 and 2012.

Attorney of man suing Aaron Hernandez shares case details

Quote:
David Jaroslawicz says Alexander Bradley had been working as Hernandez's assistant when the two got into a fight outside a Florida strip club and Hernandez fired a gun at his face.

Police say Bradley originally said he didn't know who shot him, but then alleged that it was Hernandez.

The case was originally dropped because of a paperwork error, but Bradley re-filed the suit. Jaroslawicz says his client was left for dead and that Bradley didn't file the suit right away because he feared for his life.

"When you're running around with someone like Mr. Hernandez, I can understand why you wouldn't want to get the police involved unless necessary," said Jaroslawicz. "In addition of which when someone leaves you for dead, you may be afraid he may come finish the job."

Jaroslawicz claims Bradley and Hernandez went to a strip club and had some kind of dispute.

"The next thing he knew, Mr. Hernandez shot him on the side of the road," Jaroslawicz claimed.

Well he has not yet been questioned and has remained silent. Also the Pats told him not to come to practice over being a distraction, which is understandable.

I guess we will hopefully hear something from the law now.

It almost seemed Hernandez was surprised when he opened up the door shirtless, and was immediately placed in cuffs. An act?

Personally I would have thought they would have contacted his lawyers first & given the opportunity to turn himself in.


I don't have a problem with them showing up & cuffing him like this, I just thought they'd have done it differently.

The 2010 Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) Reform Act

Quote:
Unlike many other states, Massachu-setts law does not provide for expungement, which is substantively different from sealing. Expungement essentially erases a criminal record, including police reports and arrest records, as if it never existed. On the other hand, simply getting a record sealed does not erase a record; it merely keeps it confidential on some level. In fact, an order to seal in Massachusetts applies only to court and probation records and does not affect records of arresting agencies.
We should find something out pretty soon.

We are not releasing the charge against Hernandez until it is presented to the court. Again, he will be arraigned in Attleboro Court today
