Found November 16, 2011 on The Rap Sheet:
After a physical game Sunday night with the Jets, Patriots coach Bill Belichick opted for a light workout today, putting the team through a walkthrough indoors at the Dana Farber Fieldhouse. Colleage Ian Rapoport, who made the trip over, believes it was rest and rejuvenation time before Monday night’s game with the Kansas City Chiefs. To no one’s surprise, cornerback Devin McCourty, who left Sunday’s game with what is believed to be a right shoulder separation, was not present. It’s doubtful he will be available for the Chiefs game, and beyond. Also missing were linebacker Brandon Spikes (knee), and linebacker Dane Fletcher (thumb).  Belichick has maintained recently that Fletcher is close to returning.

Belichick is Effusive Celebrating Win, (He Wants a BJ Apparently)

I can be honest, going into the Patriots/Jets contest Sunday night I did not have much confidence in my hometown team. Sure, Tom Brady was still under center, but with the offense sputtering the last two weeks and a defense that, while not giving up a lot of points, was more porous than a collander, things were not looking great. Bill Belichick underwent a difficult week with his...

How cow!!! Two coaches said swear words in situations that were kinda public…

You guys won’t believe this… but I’m almost positive Patriots coach Bill Belichick and Jets coach Rex Ryan both used swear words while walking through MetLife Stadium last night within earshot of someone. For Belichick, it was his comments allegedly made on the field after thumping the Jets in a talk with his son. Somehow, the New York Post heard it and reported that he said...

A revised look at a few of Patriots coach Bill Belichick’s groceries… and links!

When the Patriots made the bold move to cut DT Albert Haynesworth last week, it led to widespread ripping of coach Bill Belichick. Colleague Karen Guregian was right there doing it, going into great detail on the many Belichick misses. Well today, Karen takes another whack at examining Belichick’s offseason. This shows the other side. Yes, there were failures. But the Patriots...

Mankins' penalties don't worry Belichick

By Tim BrittonFOXBORO, Mass. -- One of the stranger aspects of the Patriots' season has been Logan Mankins' difficulty with penalties.

Lethal Weapon 3: Starring Tom Brady, Chad Ochocinco—and, btw, Bill Belichick

DATELINE: HUMOR!   Only Chad Ochocinco could make lemonade from lemons. With a stay in New England that has inspired character assassins and radio blabmeisters to turn violent, Chad continues to thrive in the hot spotlight of the New England Patriots. Ochocinco’s latest piece of insanity off the field is guaranteed to put him into the pantheon of Patriot legends whose...

In The Red Zone - 11/15

Yes it’s a wondrous day to be a Patriots fan.  The team totally beat down the New York Jets with a rag-tag defense that was nearly ready to call for support from any local high school willing to help.
