He saw the signs. And it opened up his eyes.

FatMan in Charlotte : 1/10/2018 9:50 am : link
I'm not too sure.

And the sign says "long hair freaky people need not apply"

So I put my hair under my hat and I went in to ask him why

He said you look like a fine outstanding young man I think you'll do

So I took off my hat I said "Imagine that Huh Me working for you"

No wise ass. You're saying he is equipped to handle pressure and scandles becuase of issues surrounding the Pats, and I'm saying you have no way of knowing that. All we really know about the Pats staff is that Belichick can handle all of these things. None of his assitants who have left have shown that they can handle the top job or these types of pressures on their own.

Matt Patricia has been referred to by former Patriot  
Brown Recluse : 1/10/2018 9:59 am : link
players as Bills little protégé. Takeo Spikes once said that if anything happened to Bill, Patricia would be the one to take over.

Not Josh McDaniels, or anyone else on that staff. Matt Patricia.

I like the idea of Wilks from Carolina. But I can't take any issue at all with Patricia being hired either. He really seems to know what he's doing and his players seem to respect him as well.
Brandon Spikes, not Takeo.

that interviews, resumes aside - given BB's history with franchise and the fact that Kraft and Maras have decent relationship - there were some unofficial conversations about both NE candidates.

I think every candidate has been a "Front Runner" by one or more

Just a weird thought...  
ryanmkeane : 1/10/2018 10:29 am : link
Patricia is an upstate NY guy, born and raised.

I'm guessing he'd never thought in his wildest dreams he'd coach the Giants - perhaps this is his "dream job" and that came across in the interview.

Before the process it was Schwartz, then early on it was McDaniels, then Belichick, then Wilks- I’m not going to read anything into this. Seems like these “beat reporters” will just keep guessing until they are finally right.

Perhaps Wilks chose not to pursue Giants job further. Arizona has a much better D and superstar RB, good WR's.. They just need a VET QB (Alex Smith?) to come and be good....
Agreed...other than something along the lines of "the Daily News has learned...". This amounts to nothing. That doesn't mean it isn't true or he won't be hired. But, this article provided no evidence that it was happening.

Exactly. I've always had a soft spot for egghead coaches in the Walsh/Belichick mode.
Leonard likely has a source  
PerpetualNervousness : 1/10/2018 10:49 am : link
even a sh*t-stirrer like Pat wouldn't write that the "daily news has learned" if he didn't have something he was going off. doesn't mean it's a good source, or even one in the giants organization. or that it isn't a smokescreen. but i would doubt he's making it up out of whole cloth

About this. Don't think it's a coincidence that both Peter King & Leonard are talking about Patricia a few hours apart after not really hearing much about him for the last week.

Leonard is not known to be particularly well connected - hard to believe he'd be the first among the beats to break this.

Given the lack of any signs provided in an "all signs point to" article, it's not entirely crazy to consider that Leonard is picking up "all signs point to" based on Myers' tweet (that the Giants prefer Patricia) and King's story (that Patricia prefers the Giants).

That's not to say that it's necessarily untrue, but with scoops at a premium for clicks, pairing Myers and King would probably be enough for Leonard to run with the story.

We're faced with a growth pick, I go with the defensive mind groomed under BB. Hopefully, the entire org grows together into something special.

Of course Brown Recluse likes the HC candidate that looks like a recluse.

Patricia is brilliant by all accounts and he has suckled at the teat of the NFL's GOAT. Just not sure how this will translate into him being a HC.

He checks the box for being a seasoned coordinator, but after the McAdoo experiment, I would would be more comfortable with someone that has HC experience.

On the other hand, this mother fucker just throws off the Belichick vibe, so that has to count for something!

I don't think he has a source either -- after having watched how he works up close -- he's a little foot loose and freewheelin with his stories

having said that -- I'm not in the McDaniels camp but I also am intrigued with Patricia
can't wait til Saban is the front runner tomorrow.

This is awesome..

Quote:
Patricia told friends that, when he arrived, Belichick was still “a pencil and paper guy,” writing film notes by hand. Patricia helped digitize the Patriots’ film review system, just as he did at Hoffman. He ran a seminar teaching Patriots rookies the video system, gave older coaches basic computer training and showed the savvier coaches how to input data into spreadsheets, analyze it and incorporate the information into their weekly game plan.

Patricia told one friend that he saved Belichick “two to three hours” a day because the new system gave Belichick, a notorious film junkie, an easier way to study tape. Which gave Belichick that much more time to scheme and strategize for each week’s opponent.

Belichick started taking Patricia on scouting trips, giving him a glimpse into his world. “[Matt] logged a lot of hours driving Bill around,” says former Patriots lineman Matt Light, who is friends with Patricia. “[Bill] wanted him close because he saw the value in a guy like Matt. People talk about players, but a really good coach? That may be more rare than an elite corner or quarterback or defensive end. They’re very difficult to find in this league.”

B in ALB : 1/10/2018 12:31 pm : link
it's clearly click-bait and an attempt by the Daily Rag to be "right" whether Patricia is the HC or not. Too many articles from that Toilet Paper touting multiple possibilities for them to be "wrong". Pretty pathetic actually.

Belichick's not coming  
moespree : 1/10/2018 12:40 pm : link
Though the radio guys in Boston today said they were starting to hear rumors that McDaniels was staying in NE. And apparently some of the NE beat writers said they believed that if Belichick ever decided to leave coaching and become a team president somewhere else, Patricia is the guy he would hire and not McDaniels.

But this is all radio rumors, so, yeah. But apparently most up there are pretty surprised by this report and never in a million years though Patricia would go to NY. So it's caused some buzz up there today supposedly.

I don't know what's come over me ..how could I have overlooked that! Seriously though, I don't pay much attention to him, I think it's rather amusing. Between you, me and the 4 virtual walls, I've warmed up to the idea of Wilks despite his lack of HC experience.
