Giants' Collins: Belichick 'too strict'

OK, no matter how unlikely, let's say Gary Myers is right and Bill Belichick does wind up with New York Giants, he better take it easy on them.

And go easy on safety Landon Collins in particular.

"The way he runs his organization, I've been through that process. I don't like it. It's too strict," the Giants safety told the New York Post about the legendary Patriots coach. "He's a great winner, he's a great coach. I don't know if [his style] is what the organization really wants." 

The Belichick-like "process" that Collins has been through was playing for Belichick disciple Nick Saban at Alabama. Collins made his comments to the Post at the national championship game Monday night when Saban's Crimson Tide rallied to beat Georgia in overtime.

"I talked to guys who played for [his] team," Collins said of Belichick. "They love winning, but at the same time, they don't want to be on the team."

With Belichick saying he "absolutely" will be back to coach Patriots next season, Collins can probably rest easy.
