ROOT: New England is talking proud

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — When an organization is dedicated to winning, it will do its homework to find leadership that will get the job done. You don’t need a Bill Cowher or John Gruden to have a winning football team. You just need a coach that knows his job and wants to work at being successful. Chan Gailey wants to work at being successful, but he doesn’t know his job.

The next Bill Belichick is out there, waiting to be discovered. The real Bill Belichick could take our team and turn it into a division champion. The talent is here. Yes, even at quarterback. The problem is that, to the current ownership (whoever that may be), turning a profit is adequate.

George N Root III is a Lockport resident, Buffalo Bills fan and New England Patriots admirer. His column appears every Wednesday, just like clockwork, because that would make Coach Belichick proud. He can be reached at georgeroot@verizon.net, but he doesn't deal in trash talking.
