In Bill we trust, right?

Over the years Bill Belichick has taken some chances on players like Chad Johnson (Ochocinco) and Albert Haynesworth.  

Kirk Minahane and Ben Volin join Gary Tanguay to discuss if Belichick the GM deserves more criticism than he is getting.

There has been some swings and misses, but Ben Volin doesn't think Belichick deserves criticism for his free agent signings and the veterans he has taken chances on.

"I think if you do want to criticize Belichick the GM, you can criticize him for second round picks." said Volin, "How many of these guys over the last few years didn't pan out?  Most recently Jermaine Cunningham and Ras-I Dowling.

"The NFL draft is the furthest thing from an exact science, but if theres anywhere that's fair to criticize Belichick, it's his draft record."

Kirk Minihane thinks Belichick is having trouble living up to one great offseason.

"To be fair to Belichick, if you look at it, that offseason going into 2001 was one of the great seasons free agent wise." said Minihane, "They spent almost no money and brought in a ton of guys. If he's a victim, he's a victim if you compare him to that."
