CSNNE:Last season, Ridley was put in mothballs after fumbling twice (one lost) late in the year. Asked how he would handle Ridley's playing time going forward this season, Belichick said, "There's nothing more important than possession of the ball. We can't afford to lose it, it's as simple as that."What that means for Sunday's game in Seattle, we'll have to wait and see. But Belichick stressed the amount of time the team spends working on making sure the ball isn't dropped by anyone anytime. "We work on ball security with every player that handles the ball. Every week. Every day," said Belichick. "That includes everybody that touches the ball. Center. Quarterback. Running backs, receivers, punters, kickers, snappers, returners, defenders when they get it if they happen to get it on a turnover. We talk and work on ball security every day with everybody. Everybody who handles it, it's important. It's the highest priority w...

Bill Belichick's Latest Cutoff Hoodie Available From Patriots Pro Shop for $75

Patriots fans have long admired coach Bill Belichick for his range of football talent -- and fashion sense. Never a coach to get caught up in a Mike Nolan-like controversy for dressing too sharp, Belichick has been just as creative at looking like a sideline hobo as he's been in calling New England's on-field schemes throughout the years. While most of Belichick...

Wes Welker Happy to Stick Huge Performance 'in Bill Belichick's Face,' Continues to Reaffirm Importance in Offense

When Julian Edelman started in Wes Welker's place against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2, the rumors began to swirl that the talented receiver's days as the primary target of New England's offense were numbered. And speculation was afoot that Bill Belichick was the instigator. Four weeks and 35 catches later, though, Welker's place in the Patriots offensive system...

Wes Welker Takes A Shot At Bill Belichick

See I don’t have a problem with this at all, but I can certainly see Bill Belichick not liking it one bit. Randy Moss went from a reformed clubhouse cancer to out of town faster than I can say “Straight cash, Homie” Do I think that will happen to Welker? No, but Aaron Hernandez and Julian Edleman will be back very soon. Between those two and the way the Patriots have been...

Wes Welker liked sticking big game in Bill Belichick’s face

Wes Welker joked after the Patriots’ win over the Broncos on Sunday that it was nice sticking his big game in coach Bill Belichick’s face. Welker had 13 catches for 104 yards and a touchdown in New England’s 31-24 win, marking his third straight 100-yard game. That’s a big development for Welker, whom the Pats appeared to be phasing out of the offense the first two weeks...

Not this year, the Patriots are running the ball with great efficiency and it might be another sign of how well head coach Bill Belichick adapts his teams to various situations. Heading into this season, the Patriots appeared to be poised to hit the field featuring a lethal passing...

Wes Welker Was 'Joking' With Bill Belichick Comments, Acknowledges Coach is 'Greatest of All-Time'

Wes Welker's subtle pass at humor was blown way out of proportion after the Patriots 31-21 win over the Broncos on Sunday night. And now he's reeling everyone back into reality. After a 13-catch performance that seemed to further solidify that he was indeed back to his normal role as a vital piece of this offense, Welker joked that it was nice to stick the monster outing...

Stevan Ridley's Insatiable Drive Continues to Power Patriots Offense to Desired Balance

After suffering a crushing defeat in the waning moments of Super Bowl XLVI, Bill Belichick had a change of heart. Well, more of a change in philosophy. In that super letdown, the Patriots managed just 19 carries for 83 yards. That subpar effort and the accompanying defeat spurred Belichick to change his entire offensive strategy. Now, the focus was going to be on building a more...
