It seems Bielema, defensive line coach for the Patriots, is having issues with Patriots DE Michael Bennett. Apparently they fought over the last jelly donut at a recent team meeting. Bielema lost but pulled rank and now Bennett is suspended for conduct detrimental to the team. Now, all donut jokes aside, tell me, how do you go to the Patriots and suddenly begin having conflicts with your own players your first year on the job? Does Belichick really want nonsense/friction like this occurring between a high profile player and a 1st year position coach? This can’t be good for Burt’s long term opportunities on the New England staff. Discuss.

I am not so sure how high profile a player is who was acquired for 2 low round draft picks. Not to mention the player was suspended and not the coach. Now I have no idea how they feel about Bert, but I do know this. Only one player on the Patriots can pull rank and get away with it and that is Brady. He forced a trade of Jimmy G. Anyone else who tries any shyt will be shown the door quickly.

Agreed. It’s fun to make Burp look like the bad guy, but it’s also Bennett’s first year with the team and they switch defenses at the same time.

I cant imagine Burp getting a double demotion to position coach even after sitting out two years and serving as a unpaid Monika Lewinsky while waiting for someone to offer him something.

I had heard NFL teams were vying for his DC services and colleges were lined up to hire him as HC.

Hmmm.... need an expert opinion on this. @Concrete Helmet, why is a top tier HC slumming it as a DL coach and picking fights with one of the guys in his charge? Shouldn’t he be leading someone to glory with his high powered rushing attack?

I thought Michael Bennett was no longer in the league.

There are about 12 million reasons he wouldn't take a college HC job for the next couple of years.....How's that new guy making out at the armpit of the SEC....Vandy gets better players top to bottom.

Bennett is washed up....but if we play our cards right we may pluck one fresh of the Belichick coaching tree as TG's replacement.
We have no interest in a fat useless, 100th -ranked defense producing, non-recruitimg abject failure.

You shouldn't talk about TG that way...at least while he's still here
I know they seem similar but you can tell the difference because one of them doesn't produce 100th ranked defenses he produces 50th ranked defenses.
