Yes, it was hectic even with that 1 minute left, but he left on his own, without anybody else on his team except for an armed escort.

1 minute?

So what - he did what he was supposed to - he congratulated, hugged, spoke to etc his counterpart ,and some of the opposing players. I see opposing coaches running immediately off the field at every game. Beyond that, I'm sure he was upset, disappointed and frustrated and wanted to get out of there and leave the celebrating to the team that won. I have no problem with that.

I meant 1 second and edited that post.

You see opposing coaches running off the field immediately before there is time still on the clock? I am sure that it wasn't a clock error, that they had to place 1 second back. 1 second was still on the clock. BB got up after that last desperate 4th and 20 play, even though the game wasn't technically over, and ran off to the middle of the field to concede the game, which prompted the Giants sideline to do the same. After congratulating TC, he just up and ran off the field to the tunnel by himself.

Billichick was headed to the locker room with time left on the clock. We were watching the game and tried to tell my mom about it. So we hit rewind and watched it again.

The clock ran down to :00. Then it flickered back to :02 and settled at :01. By this point BB was at the center of the field and actually hugging and tongued Coughlin in the ear, practically. That's right. Bill gave him gave him a big wet willie. That's a lot more than most opposing coaches get from BB!

Now BB heads into the locker room, all the while I'm sure the media crew was saying, "Hey, Billich(insert suffix of your choice here), get back to the sideline for the kneeldown! Every second counts here! We can throw in another commercial! We've got Mercury and the Boys coming on next!" Then BB said, "Bite me." and that was that.

What's the big deal? He's got other things on his mind right now. I'm sure the media HATES BB more than you, I, the entire Patriots' organization and fans could possibly hate him! He blew this whole 19-0 story line.

Hey Media, you want a scoop? UNC v. Duke on Wednesday.

I'd like to give BB props for that wonderful High Tech 12 men on the field call. I'm pretty thankful I'm not in his shoes right now.

Since you have this taped, I believe you that it did indeed run down to :00 and went back to :02.

About BB hate, I didn't really care about him before the post season, and I don't really care about him now that the season is over. He's just another good coach now that the Superbowl is done.

I agree that he would be the last person I would want to be right now though.

.
so it actually ran down to :00 and he was running out to the field? Then he probably thought, gee the game is over. And didn't see that any time was being added. Since Coughlin met him out there, it appears he thought the game was over as well.
So this appears to much be ado about nothing, or at best about :01 .

Exactly, and if he had stayed the same haters would have accused him of trying to steal the Giants' spotlight as no doubt the media would have been all over him wanting a comment.

Fox showed the clock running down to 0:00, but then they showed a second being added back on. Belichick had to know the officials were clearing the field so that the Giants could get off one final play and run out the clock. His defense certainly knew, so why wouldn't he? Knowing that there was time left, he SHOULD have gone back to the sidelines, instead of heading for the tunnel. No excuses.

To do what? It was one second, the celebration had already started. By the time he walked back that one whole second would have been over.
