“…If you’re not playing hard because you don’t like your coach as a person, what does that say about you?

The takeaway is that it’s a blessing to be chased out of Philadelphia, which hasn’t won a title since the Eisenhower administration…”

Bryan Armen Graham: The kneejerk decision to sack a good coach over a down season is a move that will haunt the title-starved club for years to come

Anyone who has read my writings knows that I don’t like Bill Belichick much, for reasons unrelated to his acumen as a football professional.

So I am not afraid whatsoever to link to his comments when it comes to evaluating other football professionals, and it is undeniable that the man knows his football.

He bolsters my earlier post about the specific wrongs of the approach to Chip Kelly by the Eagles organization…and I would say that his points also generalize well to my larger points about our society.

The truth:  it matters!
