Yeah  
SHO'NUFF : 1/6/2018 3:59 pm : link
but which team?
Leon Hess probably said the same thing in 2000.

It's a LONGshot, but until we hire a different coach I'll keep the porch light on for Bill.
well... word choice is interesting

And gives a different slant then the thread title


Owner Robert Kraft told The MMQB that he believes “absolutely” Belichick will be the coach of the team in 2018

additionally, he did not mention anything about him being under contract to NE.

though They never discuss the contract, so maybe nothing there.
Oh well. At least we keep our draft picks

What's he supposed to say

Come on.
Is this anything like a vote of confidence from an owner that spells

the kiss of death to the coaches chances of being there next year?
If it interesting that

No one is really denying that any of this actually happened. Not B.B., Kraft, Brady or JG...
Several of the writers are pointing out  
81_Great_Dane : 1/6/2018 4:50 pm : link
that he could have issued a non-denial denial like "We're focused on the playoffs," so they think the fact he said BB will be coaching the Pats indicates he's not leaving.

I don't know the NFL world that well but I'm not convinced.

First of all, people lie.

Second, Kraft may not know whether BB has decided to leave -- if Kraft is on Team Brady, BB may not feel he can or should confide in Kraft.

Third, even if Kraft knows BB wants to leave, he wouldn't make headlines now and create a further distraction.

I note that BB hasn't come out to say he's staying, or that he wants to stay, or that he's not interested in another job, or that he's not interested in the Giants job. There will continue to be smoke until he throws cold water on the fire.

Exactly....

First of all, the story that ESPN released was more fake news bullshit clickbait by a has-been sports news network that is on their way to relevance equal to that of Rolling Stone. (<< how was that for a run-on sentence?)

Second, even if there was some truth to it did anyone expect the owner to give any hint that there was a problem or that BB would not be back as they are going into the playoffs here? I mean... talk about sabotaging your team by feeding the rumor mill and creating a major distraction at the most important time of the year.
Let's wait to hear from....

Huh? Who cares where a coach established his legacy? What matters is getting the Giants back to winning, into the playoffs, and more Lombardis in the trophy case.

To me if would be a great bookend. Getting us a couple more coupled with the first two he had a big hand in us getting.
Would love to have him back

he's been on the sideline for all four of the Giants Superbowl victories.

To establish a legacy of winning naturally.
Belichick IS NOT coming here

Stop reading FAKE NEWS. BB may have some ruffles at the moment with Kraft but I do not believe their long term relationship is in any jeopardy. BB would want more control than the Giants give to a Head Coach. Gettleman is in charge here and the coach must stick to coaching. BB would not be comfortable here even if he were available, and he IS NOT. Some of the ideas being floated on here that we give up draft choices for a coach are ridiculous. The Front office is going to hire a better coach without losing valuable picks. WE need better players in certain positions of dire need...like OL, and not a "superman" coach. Coaches do not win games. Players win games.
I’m not say  
afann : 1/7/2018 8:29 am : link
He’s coming here but we have heard from everyone but him denying the story.
It seemed to be one of those stories  
Beer Man : 1/8/2018 1:29 pm : link
made up based on wishful thinking. The Pats may eventually put Bill to pasture, but like it or not he built a dynasty in New England and I'm sure he views that as home now. Things would really have to get bad in Pats land for Bill to leave and come to the Giants.
I agree that Belichick is not coming here,  
Section331 : 1/8/2018 1:59 pm : link
but I think there is more to the story than Kraft admits. The fact that BB agreed to trade Brisset early tells me he had no plans to move JG. Now maybe it was JG's agent daring the Pats to franchise JG, but trading Brisset and then JG is not a BB move.

And can we stop with the FAKE NEWS BS. It's a tired and idiotic meme made worse by your insistence on capitalizing it.
