Hasbeen a Liar ?????
QB takes some hits

The fun as training camp ended extended to players taking shots at quarterback Tom Brady for a photo spread in GQ magazine that has Brady posing with animals. Light and center Dan Koppen taped up clips of the photos, one of which included a baby goat. Brady said he had to listen to teammates talk to him all day in the voice of Hannibal Lecter, the villain from ''Silence of the Lambs." This harassment follows the ribbing Brady took after appearing on ''Saturday Night Live" in his underwear and in other magazines shirtless. All in all, it's been a revealing offseason for Brady. ''Coach always says just because they ask you to do something doesn't mean you have to do it, which he told us all again today, of course, referring to me," said Brady. ''I guess I'm a slow learner." . . . Brady welcomed four children to Gillette Stadium as part of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Massachusetts . . . Coach Bill Belichick said the decision on who would play and for how long against New Orleans tomorrow had yet to be made. Therefore, an ESPN report that he and Saints coach Jim Haslett had made a pact to play their starters into the third quarter of the exhibition game at Gillette Stadium caught him by surprise. ''I haven't talked to Jim since the owners meetings in Hawaii [in late March], so that's news to me," Belichick said.

"Well, Bill is a Heckuva coach." said Haslett.

Maybe the kiss of death will extend beyond our players and land upon Belichick.

So nice to see you again, Venturi...

How did Haslett get all the way to the N-F-L?

Something is fishy about this...

I can't imagine Haslett saying that Bill agreed to this, if they haven't spoken since March. That kind of stuff is way too easy to contradict by the other party.

I'd make sure Haslett was directly quoted as saying this, before I jump to conclusions. For instance, an ESPN REPORT stating that pact was made is much different than Haslett being directly quoted on radio or TV as saying this.

It may be fishy and all of this may be wrong, but Haslet made it clear over the years that he has no problem lying.

Let's just make sure everyone has the facts ON THIS CASE, before they start throwing out accusations.

Yeah the way I recall it... was Haz just flat out said he plans on playing the starters for 3 quarters. Before he said that there was a report on what New England usually treats the preseason and that was a couple of series and out, Belichick uses preseason more to evaluate the rookies and FA in camp not to get reps for starters. There was no mention as to wear there was an agreement and this came from NFL Network not ESPN.

Didn't anyone else think it was odd that NE would agree to play their starters for 3 quarters? That struck me as bizarre from the moment I heard it.

I mean, they're already on top, they don't need any changes.

So why risk their starters? What do they stand to gain? The way I see it, they have nothing to gain, but everything to lose.
