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?

He just knew what we all found out later. He is a scumbag murderer, so BB using the Force tried to dispose of him.

I remember that play.  I'm surprised it took this long for someone to dig up the footage.  I agree with firehalo.  BB didn't try to trip Harrison, but he definitely tried to impede him.

i don't think he tried to trip harrison, but he did try to keep marvin out of the play a little longer.  belichick made it look a little less obvious (doing the jitterbug around harrison) than alosi sticking his knee out towards the field of play.  plus, there was no gauntlet of staff members on this play collectively trying to affect the game. look, i can't stand the patriots as much as anyone (Steelers fan), but this is a pretty feeble attempt to keep the "Belicheat" fires burning.  Jets fans are unhappy because they realize that their team is just barely above mediocrity, when they spent so much money during the offseason and had such high hopes earlier this year.  i knew that tv show would blow up in their faces.  it reminds of me of when the Steelers did their version of the "Super Bowl Shuffle" before their game against the Cowboys - that blew up in THEIR faces BIG TIME.

Typical HACK journalist attempt!

Yeah the Jets get caught TRIPPING and right away they blame NE. Please get a grip.
I remember when this happened and I LAUGHED.
Guess what Peyton threw a PICK, when did Marvin Harrison become a great tackler? Please, just another LAME attempt to distract the NATIONAL fans by trying to point a finger at one of the GREATEST NFL coaches EVER PERIOD.

SHAME ON THE DINK WHO WROTE THIS AND SHAME ON THE WHOLE NY JETS ORGANIZATION.

You know I'm so tired of this Belicheat thing. Every time the Pats do great the haters come out. Hey snackers,when your beloved Fish do something besides spend the playoffs at home then you can talk noise,lol.

Belicheat, Belicheat, Belicheat. Of course he did, he tried to slow the player down from getting back into the field of play!

Funny, I watched the clip and the only thing I noticed was Peyton Manning throwing another pick

I bet who ever found this video searched all day for something they could try and twist and they still could not even come close to anything that even appears to be a trip.

What a waste of Oxygen that person uses everyday, be Green save the environment and KILL yourself
