This Guy Can Call The Shots For My Crew Anyday
So, on top of shedding some light on the traitorious ways of Bill Parcells (see here for more), the head coach of the NFL's New England Patriots has also offered up this extremely good stuff:
[Back in 2002, as the Patriots struggled trying to repeat as Super Bowl champs, head coach Bill Belicheck] read in the paper one day that one of players said the team had to get its "swagger'' back. That day, in the team meeting, he said: "You know what? We didn't have a 'swagger' last year. What we had was a sense of urgency about playing well, being smart, and capitalizing on every opportunity and situation that came our way ... It wasn't about a f------- swagger. You can take that swagger and shove it right up you're a--, OK?''Amen. Whether it be with respect to football or just some everyday living, those are some on point words from Mr. Belicheck. Words to live by in fact. Well done.
