    Is it realistic to think that Belichek would leave, and possibly be going to the Giants? That said, at this point, I think all of us are ready to see Saban leave Alabama. Enough is enough...

    I don't see it. In college he has everyone under his thumb and gets to control everything.
    He's a bad fit in the world of having to answer to an owner, a GM, and deal with players who have actual power, money and options.

    Did you hear something or did you just make that up? There does seem to be a riff between Belichick and Craft with Craft taking Brady's side. It started with the Garoppolo trade. Belichick want to keep him a Brady's replacement but Craft overruled him. There is a scenario where I could see it happening but first how much would Craft be willing to pay Saban and would Saban want to preside over a declining dynasty and in effect become the fall guy and tarnish his legacy.

    I just don’t see it. Why on earth would he leave an annual championship?

    Not to mention if there is a rift between Belechick and Brady because of Brady’s Rasputin I don’t see a scenario where Saban would get along with him.

    To me, if Saban were to coach in the NFL again, that would make the most sense. He and his mentor are very similar. I don't think he could go to Cleveland or to the Jets and have the results he could in New England. His methods are not easily taken to by the majority of the snowflakes coming out of college these days.
