Posted November 14, 2011 on AP on Fox
It was a surprisingly dominating win over a major rival that had won three straight games. Now the New England Patriots enter the soft part of their schedule. Only one of their remaining seven opponents has a winning record. And on Monday night the Kansas City Chiefs are expected to start a quarterback against them who has thrown just 13 NFL passes. But just as the Patriots' 37-16 beating of the New York Jets on Sunday night was unexpectedly one-sided, so might a big underdog stun the Patriots, especially if they dwell on their latest success. Coach Bill Belichick said Monday that whatever happened in their last game won't affect how they play in their next game.

Belichick doesn't remember postgame comment

New England coach Bill Belichick says he doesn't remember using a vulgar phrase he reportedly uttered coming off the field after the Patriots win over the New York Jets. Belichick said at his regular Monday news conference that ''I don't remember it that way. I don't think we're here to talk about that. If you want to talk about the game, great.''...

Belichick lets loose about Jets

Usually the colorful quotes in the Jets-Patriots rivalry are supplied by Rex Ryan, but the roles were reversed after Sunday night's blowout win by New England. As the normally-reserved Patriots coach Bill Belichick walked off the MetLife Stadium field, he threw his arm around his son, Stephen, and added an exclamation mark to the 37-16 victory. "Thirty-seven points on...

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...

NFL Monday Morning Ramblings: Another Impressive Win for Brady and Belichick

Bill Belichick and Tom Brady have won quite a lot of games for the New England Patriots together, a NFL Super Bowl era-record 117, in fact.  And needless to say, many of those victories have been pretty impressive in magnitude.  That will happen when you win three Super Bowls in four appearances. Yet that’s why it’s so unlikely—and perhaps fitting—that the latest Belichick...

Bill Belichick Says Patriots Will Promote Marcus Cannon to Active Roster

Head coach Bill Belichick said Tuesday the Patriots will add rookie offensive lineman Marcus Cannon to the active roster by the 4 p.m. deadline. Cannon was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma prior to the NFL draft in the spring. Once considered a second-round prospect, Cannon fell to the Patriots in the fifth round. He started the season on the non-football injury list, which...

Once again, Patriots rise off the canvas

Bill Belichick may not be the most engaging or forthcoming guy, but those who cover the New England Patriots on a regular basis know exactly what they're going to get from the famously taciturn head coach every week.

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. The veteran picked up another holding call on Sunday night, and he is tied for the team lead in penalties alongside Rob Gronkowski with six. Head coach Bill Belichick, though, isn't concerned with the yellow flags his left guard is drawing...

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. I will say this, when you put a Bill Belichick team on notice, tell them they’re no good, they’re falling apart, no one believes they can win and anything else you want to...

Marcus Cannon to be added to Patriots roster

By Brian MacPhersonMarcus Cannon is on the verge of returning to the field. Patriots coach Bill Belichick, who tends to keep pending transactions to himself until they officially are announced, disclosed during a conference call with reporters Tuesday that the rookie offensive lineman will be placed on the Patriots' active roster after six weeks on the physically unable to perform...
