It’s probably safe to assume Bill Belichick hates losing more than he enjoys winning. That mindset often makes him the subject of scrutiny when the Patriots falter. CBS analyst and former NFL tight end Shannon Sharpe wasn’t too pleased with Belichick’s antics following New England’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship game on Sunday. Belichick skipped his postgame interview with CBS, and Sharpe promptly ripped into the Patriots’ head coach. “There’s something to be said about being gracious in defeat,” Sharpe said after Belichick’s shutdown. “We’ve seen the New England Patriots five times in the last 12 years be victorious. And we’ve seen the opposing coaches that lost come out and speak to our Steve Tasker. Coach [Bill] Cowher did it when they lost. We saw this last week. Bill Belichick makes it very easy for you to root against the Patriots. You can’t be a poor sport all the time. You’re not going to win every time. And he does this every time he loses. It is una

Belichick not in the wrong following Sunday’s loss

It almost seems like more has been made of what took place off the field following the AFC Championship game Sunday rather than what happened on the field during the game. Much has been made of Bill Belichick denying an interview to CBS following the game, and instead the Patriots having Devin McCourty speak to them. Many have called Belichick a “sore loser” and heavily criticized...

Bill Belichick Says Patriots ‘Came Up a Little Short in Every Area,’ Insists Ravens ‘Made More Plays’

Another season has ended with a crushing defeat for the Patriots. And while Bill Belichick was certainly upset following Sunday’s AFC Championship loss to the Ravens, he was his usual self while addressing the media. What that means is that Belichick provided succinct — and rather uninteresting — answers to a variety of questions, while making it clear that the Ravens are a...

Vote: Does Bill Belichick Mistreat the Media?

Bill Belichick was understandably disappointed with the Patriots’ performance on Sunday, and his frustration got the best of him after the game. Belichick, who was somewhat defensive and succinct in his postgame news conference, skipped out on an interview with CBS following Sunday’s AFC Championship loss, which Shannon Sharpe called “unacceptable.” Sharpe said that you can’t...

Shannon Sharpe calls Bill Belichick a sore loser

Shannon Sharpe of CBS ripped Bill Belichick last night for being a "poor sport." After the game there is always an interview with the losing coach, an interview that Belichick did not do. So, Sharpe decides he needs to give his much-sought-out-for(sarcasm) opinion. Heres what he said: "There's something to be said about being gracious in defeat," Sharpe...

Shannon Sharpe Rips Bill Belichick After AFC Title Game For Not Doing Interview (Video)

Shannon Sharpe apparently wasn't too happy last night when Patriots coach Bill Belichick didn't do a post game interview with CBS.  Honestly I'm not getting the big buzz about this.  Who wants to hear from a losing coach anyway?  What's he gonna say?  Umm we sucked tonight, they were better, we'll try again next year.  Oh, thanks coach.  Boring as hell. ...

John Harbaugh Says Bill Belichick Was ‘So Classy’ After AFC Championship Game

There are actual football games, and then there are the games that people play within those football games. For the Patriots, that means questions about how Bill Belichick does (or doesn’t) talk after games, and whether his speedy postgame handshakes are in some way a slight. Shannon Sharpe was all worked up Sunday evening when Belichick declined an interview after the Patriots’...

John Harbaugh: Belichick is classy

With everyone saying Bill Belichick and Tom Brady were sore losers, I was glad to see this headline. Belichick caused a stir last night when he didn't interview with CBS, a customary thing to do after a game, win or lose. As a result of this, Bill was labeled as unprofessional and a sore loser. I think John Harbaugh has the biggest say in whether or not Bill is classy or not...

Bill Belichick Gives a Forlorn ‘I’ll Be Here’ When Asked Whether He Plans to Return to Coaching Patriots

FOXBORO, Mass. — Ray Lewis may be rolling through the final weeks of his NFL career before retirement this offseason, but don’t expect the same from Bill Belichick.

Boomer Esiason: Belichick gives people a reason to hate him

Brian Billick Defends Bill Belichick’s Handling of Media, Says ‘Quit Ripping Him for Being Who He Is’ (Video)

Watching Bill Belichick address the media is something that’s rivaled only by watching paint dry, but apparently there are quite a few people with a strong desire to watch paint dry nowadays. Brian Billick isn’t one of them. Billick, an NFL analyst who spent nine seasons coaching the Ravens from 1999 to 2007, doesn’t see what all the fuss is about when it comes to Belichick’s...

NFL Morning Lines

Will this be the last NFL game for Ray Lewis, or with Bill Belichick and Tom Brady get to another Super Bowl. The guys in Vegas have New England at more than a touchdown favorite, but the line has been moving in Baltimore’s direction. The other hot pick seems to be San Francisco, as they are now a 3.5 to 4 point favorite on the road against Atlanta, as everyone seems to be jumping...
