The Boston Globe published a little excerpt of New York Daily News columnist Gary Myers' new book "Coaching Confidential: Inside the Fraternity of NFL Coaches".
The excerpt deals with the writer's conversation with Patriots owner Bob Kraft about Bill Belichick and the infamous 'Spygate' saga.
Apparently, Kraft confronted Belichick about the scandal, asking him "How much did this help us on a scale of 1 to 100?"
"One," was Belichick answer.
"Then you're a real schmuck," Kraft says. As much as we respect and admire coach Belichick here at 60 Max, he surely walked into that one.
Also in the book, Kraft explains what we already knew, that taping signals was widely used and known around the league, and relays the story about how Herm Edwards and assistant Donnie Henderson waved to their cameras when Herm was head coach of the New York Jets..
Regarding the whistle blower that blew the scandal wide open? Kraft asked, "How much of a surprise was it to Eric Mangini and GM Mike Tannenbaum?"
"You know how many teams steal signals? That's bupkis . . . We kicked [the Jets] off our roof (in 2006)."
