  • Martz vs. Belichick

    Bill Belichick is the master of getting more with less and he's fully aware of his weakness in the secondary, which means he's making adjustments. He's always had a knack at plugging in backups, changing his schemes and making it all work. No one does it better.

    It's critical that Mike Martz be prepared to counter those adjustments. This game is a big opportunity for him to silence his critics and detractors by showing he can battle with the best and come out on top. If he stands toe to toe with Belichick and makes the right moves, we win.

    Yes, making the half time adjustments is the key for Martz. Can he do it ???

      Critics will never give Martz much credit for this win if he pulls it off because of the circumstances. The Patriots' two starting corners are out, Dillon and Brady are dinged up, etc etc. I already heard on talk radio that people were questioning the legitimacy of Pittsburgh's win against the Pats because of Dillon being out. There's no way a living bullseye like Martz would be commended if he and the Rams come out with a W in the result column after this weekend.

        I'm not so sure Martz couldn't gain some favor from a win against Belichick. Although the Pats are banged up, they're still a formidible team and are actually a slight favorite over the Rams. Time will tell just how affected they are as a result of their injury situation, but I think Martz will have to counter some of what Belichick throws at him in order to win. If he's successful, I think he'll get some credit.

          I'm sure Martz won't mind if he dosn't get any credit as long as he wins

            I don't know. I can just see the Fox broadcast team very silent if Martz manages to pull this off. I doubt ESPN would give him much credit either, not with Berman at the helm.

              Martz has a lot more to lose than to gain this week. There will be more focus on Martz if he "fails to beat the beat up Patriots" than if he beats the Patriots "with all of their injury problems."

                If Martz out-coaches Belichick and the Rams win, at the very least the critics will have to hold their tongues. It will be up to Mike to keep them silent with continued good coaching performances because he definitely has a bullseye on his back as a favorite whipping boy. Winning and looking good doing it will be a great equalizer.

                As for the guys at Fox, I must agree that nothing Martz does will ever bring them around, especially after he embarrassed them in front of the entire nation and made them choke on their "you just keep passing Mike" halftime rants.

                    Martz Has To Go.... PERIOD!!!!!
                    by Guest
                    I know there are alot of Martz fans here, but he has to go. it is his responsibility to get his team ready for each game and he clearly didn't get the job done.

                    he had 2 weeks to prepare for this game and the Patriots were descimated in the secondary. this should have been a big win. instead it is a big loss.

                    I've heard all the arguements that this team does not have the talent on the defensive side of the ball or the offensive line. but you can't tell me if Belichek was coaching this team that he would be getting the most out of this team and they would be winning.

                    the Patriots don't have superstars on their team. can you even name an offensive lineman on the Patriots? exactly my point. no real superstars but dominating the NFL.

                    Belichek chould turn this team around with the same personel. no doubt about it. Martz has not made the most of his tenure and that is why it is time for him to go.

                    now, will the Rmas actually fire him? NO!!!!! they will blame it on the defense and fire Marmie and Martz will skate by again.

                    sorry Martz fans and supporters, but you know I am right about this.

                    if another coach could make winners out of the dame personel and the coach you have can't, it's time to fire the coach.

                    Martz doesn't believe spying charges

                    Article Last Updated: 02/21/2008

                    INDIANAPOLIS If it matters, Mike Martz doesn't believe the New England Patriots spied on his walkthrough practice prior on the eve of Super Bowl XXXVI.

                    Interested in the investigation. But not yet convinced he was one of the NFL's most notorious victims.

                    Martz was head coach of the St. Louis Rams, the juggernaut of the 2001 season that was shocked by the heavily underdog Patriots, 20-17.

                    "Maybe it helped them, maybe it didn't," Martz said Thursday at the NFL Scouting Combine he is attending as the San Francisco *****' new offensive coordinator. "But you'll never be able to measure that if they did do that. You're assuming they did that and I choose to believe they didn't do that."

                    The Pats won two more Super Bowls, but have since been caught illegally videotaping opposing coaches' signals by the league. While that transgression cost the Patriots and coach Bill Belichick a combined $1.25 million in fines and a first-round draft pick, a more damaging accusation could be a Boston Herald report that the Pats illegally taped the Rams' final walkthrough before their Super Bowl meeting.

                    The league is negotiating with Matt Walsh, who formerly worked in the Pats' video department until he was fired in 2003. The league wants to know if the Rams' walkthrough was taped, if it was Walsh who taped it, and if he still has that tape.

                    "Of course, I'm interested," Martz said. "I was involved in that. It was my responsibility. I was responsible for a lot of people in that game. I am interested. But I'm going to assume it's totally false. Until they prove otherwise, there's not much to talk about."

                    Does anyone have any thought on if we would promote
                    from within or go get a different coach for next year.
