Did Belichick try to trip Marvin Harrison?

So, this is kind of weird.

As posted to the Big Lead today, this video appears to show Patriots coach Bill Belichick trying to impede former Colts WR Marvin Harrison as he tried to return to the field during a 2004 game.

See for yourself here:



At first, it looks like Belichick is doing that accidental "I can’t believe we’re trying to pass each other but we still keep bumping into each other" dance AFTER running a few steps to get into Harrison’s path. Then, Belichick turns his back and makes contact with Harrison. Either way, it’s a little strange.

It’s certainly not as damning as the Sal Alosi tape, but still, it makes one wonder, doesn’t it?

Josh Katzowitz you are a freaking retard for even bringing this to this site. This is actually hilarious how much of an idiot you look like.  I would be willing to bet you are secretly a fan of one of the teams the Patriots dismantled recently. Your a f-ing retard and your mom must have been drinking the entire time you were breast feeding  which was probably until last week, or maybe yesterday when you decided to write this. Go hang yourself.

Not at all , like mentioned in a comment earlier people need to stop trying to find excuses to insult or taint the name of possibly one of the best coaches the NFL has ever seen.
Yes the video scandal hurt , but there is no denying that  Bill Belichick can dismantle any team on pure footage the guy is amazing , CBS should be a little bit more careful with these things .

Hell, in the NBA it's OK for a player to bump his own coach.

The CBS crew are definently full of Patriot haters. This seems like a pretty weak attempt to refresh the Patriot cheater debate. if anything it just shows that BB can't dance for crap. Last I check that isn't a crime.  Either way, I think CBS just does it to get people to post on their board. Why else would they rank the Falcons over the Pats in the Power Rankings.

I wouldn't count on it SteelPlatoon. This makes irrational Patriot haters look worse than anything. Not that they need any more reasons to hate Belechick, but even the most diehard haters 
should be embarrassed to make a big deal out of this stupid clip. Worst case scenario is that you believe BB was actually trying to impede Harrison from returning to a play that he was already out of with his funny dance. To compare that to a Jet employee intentionally tripping and injuring an opposing player running at full speed is absurd and further substantiates the Jets inferiority complex.

Kinda looks like BB was just trying to get out of Harrison's way to me, but that dance he did while looking right at Harrison was kinda strange for sure.  Suspicious?  Meh, maybe, but is a bit of a stretch, I'd say.  Talk about nit-picking....

Saying that this is just some jealous hater trying to bring the Pats down was my first impression too-- until I watched the video clip!

I still think this is just a strong case of the above, but......that DOES NOT ADDRESS what was actually shown in the video.  What the hizzie was BB doing in that video exactly?

Until someone can answer that, this may be a case of a "jealous hater trying to bring the Pats down"

OR

a case of the "Patriots apologeticists avoiding the difficult question of another cheating accusation".








Could also be a case of both simultaneously too.  Either way, I don't really care, but it will be entertaining to hear the responses and the ensuing bloodshed that this is sure to bring.  Gonna go get my popcorn ready....

Amazing....another resentful, envious Pats hater figuring out a way to smear the unequal, resounding success of the best team in football. Last few days, they've targetted the team, now they target the best coach in football history. Envy, envy, envy... I know it hurts NFL but learn to adapt and accept the fact that the Pats own the league - period!

I am a die-hard Colts fan who by nature hate the Pats but have come to respect them as the years go by. This is more than retarded and should come to be expected by the morons who write for the facts and rumors section. Also known as the bitchy, petty, cat fighting, feminine product endorsing, gossip mongering, baseless, fact-less, group of E-channel watching, tabloid worshiping, Ryan Seacrest wannabe pussies.
