Former Pats lineman says he purposely got into car crash to avoid Bill Belichick's wrath

LINK
Ohrnberger relayed the story on his radio show Thursday. It all started when Ohrnberger's phone died in the middle of the night. His alarm never went off, leading him to wake up late. Ohrnberger rushed to his car, but realized on his drive he was going to be 10 minutes late for a team meeting.

Fearing he would be cut for tardiness, Ohrnberger purposely crashed into another car so he could present Belichick with a valid excuse for being late.

Ohrnberger said he didn't hit the car — which was a church van — hard. But he needed to hit it hard enough to cause a dent in his own car so he could provide the Patriots with evidence of the crash. Ohrnberger said he gave his insurance information and some money to the driver of the van before leaving for practice.

Ohrnberger said he spoke to Belichick's assistant and waited in the offensive linemen's meeting room until the full team meeting concluded. The first person Ohrnberger saw was offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia, who seemed to know exactly what was going on. Scarnecchia reportedly told Ohrnberger his stunt may fly elsewhere, but to be on time from now on.



I would have went with the I had diarrhea but ok that’s another way….

There are videos of the team after games and whatnot and they all seem to have a grand time.

The “patriot way” stuff might be a little overblown.

Yeah...because they win.

Matt Patricia tried the below .500 version of the "Patriot Way" and it was a catastrophic failure in every way.

Everything I've ever read about Belichick says he's not nearly the grouchy a-hole he portrays himself to be in front of the media.

They were in the playoffs with a rookie QB last season, so not poorly

Amazing how the "Patriot Way" only seems to work when that guy named Brady is the QB...

What teams are happy when they lose?

I’m sure you saw Landry dismember the room when he first got to Cleveland.

Did the Landry way sound fun?

That isn’t unique to most styles of coaching, what the heck.

Will you lose your team faster if you’re tough and lose as opposed to being soft and losing? Sure. But who cares? You’re losing.

My Cousin-in-law plays for the Patriots and he loves it. He has played for Dallas, Jets, Tampa, and New England.
