The Belichick-Mangini Handshake
Much has been made of the fact that Patriots coach Bill Belichick barely acknowledged his Jets counterpart Eric Mangini after the Patriots-Jets game on Sunday. Mangini was once a close friend with Belichick, but that personal relationship cooled even as Mangini remained one of Belichick's trusted lieutenants and rose to become the Patriots' defensive coordinator last season. Belichick had a great line to address the alleged snub. Saying it was not a big deal, he asked the assembled throng of sportswriters dying to create a story out of nothing to ``Let me know the next time you see two coaches kiss out there at midfield."
