New England Patriots free safety Devin McCourty says Greg Schiano is tougher than Bill Belichick

McCourty made the revelation on "NESN Live" on June 23, per NESN.com's Doug Kyed:  

"Count Devin McCourty among those on Team Edelman. 

"The New England Patriots safety 'NESN Live' co-hosts Elle Duncan and Sarah Davis that Julian Edelman is more difficult to cover than Patriots-turned-Denver Broncos receiver Wes Welker. 

"'Julian Edelman,' McCourty answered on Monday's show debut. 'We don't ever root for any Broncos around here.'

"McCourty had to go with his quarterback when deciding who is the better dresser between Edelman and Tom Brady, however. 

"'You gotta go with the teacher, because he started it,' McCourty said. 'Tom started it and Julian followed. I'll give Julian one, he thinks he's like an actor. He thinks he's a pretty famous actor.'

"McCourty had a surprising answer when asked who is the tougher head coach between Greg Schiano -- whom he played under at Rutgers -- and the Patriots' Bill Belichick. 

"'Ooh, Greg Schiano,' McCourty said. 'Toughest coach I've ever played for. 

"'He's more of yeller and a screamer. He'll get right in your face. Bill's more sarcastic. Both can be pretty brutal, but I'm gonna go with Coach Schiano.'

"Belichick might favor drafting and signing Schiano-coached players because if they can survive under the former Rutgers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach, playing for the Patriots will appear like a cake walk. 

"The Patriots currently have six Schiano-coached players on their 90-man roster: defensive backs McCourty, Logan Ryan, Duron Harmon and Darrelle Revis, linebacker Steve Beauharnais and defensive tackle Chris Jones."

On June 17, Belichick made headlines by airing his displeasure over the current schedule of the NFL draft, which is during the second week of May. He told The Boston Herald's Jeff Howe he prefers the league revert to the old schedule in April to help teams prepare earlier: 

"Yeah, of course. I mean, the sooner you have your players, the easier it is to start, not only getting them integrated into your team but but also building your team. There are certain things you get in the draft, then you have to fill other areas of the team with veteran players or college free agents or whatever.

"When that process is going on, you can see every day you pick up the transactions, every team has got -- not every team -- but there's probably 5-15 transactions on a daily basis. Of course, if you had the draft, you can move that whole process up. Whatever it is, it is. It's not my decision, but I would go for an earlier draft, absolutely."

How much money is Jim Harbaugh worth? The value of a coach in the NFL is a little harder to define than the value of a player, because there is no salary cap for your coaching staff.  It’s one of the few areas a big-pocketed owner can get a leg up on smaller teams—Jerry Jones couldn’t sign the entire All-Pro roster to his team, but he could sign the very best and brightest coaches and pay them 10 times as much as anyone else would. Nevertheless, the NFL ...
