Found November 11, 2011 on The Rap Sheet:
Well, this was pretty hilarious. Or awkward. Or both. Anyway, I wanted to ask Patriots coach Bill Belichick about his classic press conference from a decade ago, when he announced he was resigning as HC of NYJ. This one. And what transpired wasn’t quite what I had in mind. And yes, I think Belichick cracked a smile because of it. Shoot, I had to stop myself from laughing. In the end, I kinda got the answer I sought, but with a lot more ridiculousness thrown in. Oh, and I ended up telling Belichick he was old. As we say on Twitter, #Fail. Check out the give-and-take from the news conference: Me: Was the press conference in 1999 when you resigned as Jets head coach the strangest press conference you have ever done?

Bill Belichick Among the Most Hated and Loved NFL Coaches

Why the Jets want the Patriots to run, learning the fine rules… and links!

A few random things before we get to what we wrote about today… – The Patriots have talked about being balanced this week, even while coach Bill Belichick said, “The most important thing is to make the plays you need to make to win.” Still, just like last time, they want to run the ball at Gang Green. That, it seems, is what the Jets want. “We’ve always gone into it thinking...

In an entertaining sit-down with Bob Costas of NBC’s Football Night in America, Jets coach Rex Ryan offers up, with his typically colorful choice of words, an assessment of Patriots coach Bill Belichick. “The funny thing about Belichick is, he’s a great guy and he’s funny,” Ryan tells Costas.  “He’s somebody you’d like to drink…

Rodney Harrison Rips Albert Haynesworth for Quitting, Faking Injuries

Bill Belichick and the Patriots thought they might be able to resurrect Albert Haynesworth’s career.  They were wrong.  Once considered to be the most dominant defensive lineman in the game, Haynesworth has become a disgrace.  He signed a record-breaking free agent contract in 2009 only to collect his guaranteed money and throw in the towel [...]

Jets Week An Afterthought

The Patriots and Jets renew their intense rivalry this Sunday night, but with the Penn State scandal (which just seems to be getting worse and worse every day) and the release of Albert Haynesworth, the game has been pretty much an afterthought when it comes to sports talk this week. Patriots articles this morning pretty much fall into three camps – rehashing Bill Belichick...

Patriots Safety Chung ‘Working to Play’

Could starting Safety Patrick Chung be unable to play Sunday for the Patriots?  While he’s on the record as saying he’s ‘working to play’ it could be that he won’t be able to go.  According to ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss he wasn’t in practice much of the week, and only saw some limited time on the field Friday.
