Bill Belichick:

latest news at page 1:
    BOSTON (CBS) — In the celebratory Patriots locker room on Sunday, team owner Robert Kraft had a request for some of Kendrick Bourne’s teammates. “Can we get him to get a little more enthusiasm?” Kraft said of the receiver. “He’s too quiet.” Obviously, Kraft was joking, as Bourne has been an energetic presence for the Patriots since arriving in Foxboro in the spring. He had his best game as a Patriot and one of the best games of his career on Sunday, when he caught five passes for 61 yards and two touchdowns. He was so good that even Bill Belichick was in a playful mood after the 36-13 win over the Titans. “Where is my man? Where’s KB?” Belichick said while standing in the middle of the locker room while delivering the postgame speech. Bourne then went in for a hug, and Belichick obliged … before busting out the same stiff-arm move that Bourne used to score his second touchdown. Earlier, when Bourne arrived in the locker room, he begged Belichick to “do the stiff-arm.” Belichick was nice enough...
    Getty Bill Belichick on the sidelines during Super Bowl XLIV. Bill Belichick has no misgivings about the way Buffalo Bills fans feel about him. The New England Patriots coach is 35-7 against the Bills, with the AFC East rivals beating Buffalo in all manners during that time, including a number of blowouts. The Bills were able to exorcism some demons last season, beating the Patriots twice en route to the franchise’s first AFC East title since 1995. The teams are now poised to meet in a Monday Night Football matchup that will determine divisional supremacy, and Belichick is opening up about his relationship with Bills fans.

    Getty Bill Belichick Legendary head coach is again getting the props he deserves from critics and analysts. CBS Sports’ Pete Prisco sees this current season as Belichick’s best ever and he believes the future Hall-of-Famer is wrapping up G.O.A.T honors with his moat recent coaching performance. Bill Belichick is the greatest NFL coach of all time, and it’s not going to be a debate at all when he finally retires. (Belichick has won more Super Bowls (six) than any other coach, but he’s also [40] victories away from tying Don Shula for the most victories in coaching history, a record that I used to think was unbreakable. If you would have said that after four weeks of the season, people would have thought you were nuts. But, in vintage Belichick fashion, he has put a slow start behind him and has his team surging at the right time.
    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Last week, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick made a public case for Rodney Harrison’s Hall of Fame worthiness. Longtime football writer Peter King doesn’t buy it. READ MORE: A Patriots-Buccaneers Super Bowl Is ... Legitimately PossibleKing dedicated a portion of his Monday column to Belichick’s commentary on the Hall of Fame, particularly about Belichick’s statement that “there’s no criteria” for determining whether or not a player belongs in Canton. King agreed with that assessment. “Of course there is no criteria for the Hall of Fame. To my knowledge, that is the case with most if not all Halls of Fame,” King wrote. “Plus, with all the positions, how would you make minimum criteria for every one? You can’t.” With the establishment that Hall of Fame evaluations are inherently subjective, King then … disqualified Belichick’s subjective opinion on Harrison because of bias. “The bottom line is every coach, every fan base, can point to two or so players who aren’t in the Hall and pound fists on the table over them,” King wrote. “If...
    New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick made some interesting comments about the Pro Football Hall of Fame selection process when he was asked about the candidacies of Richard Seymour and Vince Wilfork. Seymour was a finalist for the 2021 ballot and Wilfork is on the ballot for the first time. Seymour was a three-time All-Pro and Super Bowl champion with the Patriots. He retired after the 2012 season.  Wilfork was on the ballot for the first time this year. He was a one-time All-Pro and a two-time Super Bowl champion. He retired after the 2016 season.

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — The Pro Football Hall of Fame has entered the Boston sports discussion this week. With Vince Wilfork and Richard Seymour making the list of 26 modern-era semifinalists, and with Rodney Harrison not making that list, opinions have been plentiful regarding the worthiness of the three former Patriots. READ MORE: It's An Interesting Time To Revisit Saints' Efforts To Trade Up To Draft Mac JonesNaturally, given his profound knowledge and appreciation for the history of the NFL, as well as his personal experience coaching those players, Bill Belichick was asked to chime in on the matter during his media availability on Friday morning. Specifically, the coach was asked about Seymour and Wilfork, and whether players at positions where statistics aren’t readily available to show their impact deserve more recognition. Before answering that question specifically, Belichick expressed his issue with Hall of Fame debates and discussions. “As I’ve said before, the Hall of Fame is out of my control. And since there’s no criteria for the Hall of Fame, it’s really hard to even have a conversation...

    New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is certainly focusing on Sunday's matchup against the Tennessee Titans after securing first place in the AFC East, but before that, he’ll be digging into his favorite Thanksgiving dish.  During his weekly appearance on WEEI, Belichick revealed what he looks forward to most during the holiday --- and it’s not the stuffing.  THANKSGIVING DAY NFL SCHEDULE 2021: WHICH TEAMS ARE PLAYING, KICKOFF TIMES AND MORE  "Oh boy.

    New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick offered his take on what is the best Thanksgiving side dish. Spoiler: it involves starch. Thanksgiving is just days away, which means you are bound to hear the debate on which side dish is the best. Whether it is at work or among your group of friends. Perhaps take some advice from head coach of the first-place New England Patriots, Bill Belichick. The head coach was asked by WEEI’s Greg Hill about which side dish he would put on the table for Thanksgiving if he could only choose one. Belichick answered by saying that any form of potatoes is the best dish, before saying “starch me up.” Question: One side dish on the table for Thanksgiving?

    Spare yourself listening to the tired ‘turkey is overrated’ hot takes this week and pay attention to New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick wax poetic about potatoes. Order has been restored in the AFC East, with New England once again controlling first place after the Buffalo Bills loss on Sunday, but that won’t make Belichick any more likely to say something interesting about the current state of his team. Instead, the usually reserved and often insolent head coach would like to tell you about Thanksgiving side dishes. During his weekly radio spot on WEEI’s The Greg Hill Show, Belichick was asked about his favorite Thanksgiving staple and the 69-year-old head coach couldn’t speak glowingly enough about potatoes. “It would be hard for me to turn down any type of potatoes,” Belichick firmly stated. “I’ll go with whatever. Mashed potatoes, scalloped, or, you know, baked, or however they’re made…Load em up…throw some butter on there and just starch me up.” Belichick easily could have given a more generic response and claimed he didn’t have a favorite to...
    FOXBORO (CBS) —  The Patriots have always been tight-lipped about Bill Belichick’s salary, but it is no secret that he has a pretty big figure on his paystubs. We now know that Belichick is not just the highest-earning coach in the NFL, but that the hooded one is the highest-paid coach in all of U.S. sports. That comes thanks to a new list by Sportico. Kurt Badenhausen published a list of the Highest-Paid Coaches In U.S. Sports on Wednesday, and Belichick is above everyone else in the world of sports coaching.

Not only did he appear to regress as a player, he also had an unfortunate, near-death experience that had him contemplating retirement because of the long recovery.

    Getty Cam Newton, Bill Belichick It was a smash hit as Newton facilitated TDs on his first two touches. He ran for a score and threw for another.

    BOSTON (CBS) — Things did not work out for Cam Newton in his one-plus season with the New England Patriots. But there are no hard feelings when it comes to the quarterback and Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. Newton was a free agent until last week following his August release from the Patriots, but now the quarterback is back in Carolina.

    Back when Nick Saban was Bill Belichick’s defensive coordinator with the Browns, the Alabama head coach had to figure out how to get one by the head coach. Very few people would risk incurring the wrath of Bill Belichick. When you’re Nick Saban, you can get away with it apparently. During his weekly radio show on 95.3 The Bear and Tide 100.9, Saban shared an incredible anecdote from his time coaching with Bill Belichick. Nick Saban kept a sly secret from Bill BelichickSaban was Belichick’s defensive coordinator in Cleveland and occasionally the head coach would try to change Saban’s play calls at the last second. He even claimed the Browns lost a game because of it once. So Saban figured out how to prevent the late confusion. He worked out a system with middle linebacker Pepper Johnson to get them off the hook from the head coach. “I said ‘Look, Pepper. I’m going to give you a signal, and you touch your face mask when you get the signal.’ If Bill wants to change after that we’re done,” Saban said....

The Patriots head coach is usually in a pretty jovial mood and willing to open up on just about anything when chatting with reporters at the end of a given week.

    BOSTON (CBS) — Thursday is, of course, Veterans Day in America. To honor the day, NFL Films busted out a classic clip to share on Twitter. The clip comes from the Patriots’ sideline before a game in 2018. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick — a man with immense respect for the U.S. armed forces — was stopped by a fan who was with his grandfather, a World War II veteran celebrating his 102nd birthday. That man was Norman Taché, who passed away just 10 days ago, on Nov. 1, 2021, at the age of 104 — three days shy of his 105th birthday. Taché’s obituary stated that he served in the Asiatic Pacific Theater during World War II with the Army Air Corps. Here’s how the conversation with Belichick in 2018 went: Grandson: This is my 102-year-old grandfather. It’s his birthday today. He served in World War II. Belichick: Congratulations. Grandson: He’s a great man. Belichick: Yeah, it’s an honor. It’s an honor to meet you. Thank you for being here. 102, I love it. Taché: I went through...

For years, NFL teams have been trying to replicate the success of Bill Belichick's tenure in New England, and it's an effort that hasn't proven fruitful. While coaching trees in the NFL are generally overrated and largely unsuccessful, that hasn't stopped teams from trying to find the next "Hoodie" from Belichick's staffs. Belichick understudies have gotten lots of marquee jobs in the NFL since the Patriots' head coach has become a proven commodity in the league and etched his name into the pantheon of all-time greats. Unfortunately for Belichick (and even more so for his assistants), his reputation of co-activating new leaders and creating quality head coaching candidates isn't exactly strong. Here's a look at the more notable Belichick disciples and their successes — more like failures — in the NFL head coaching ranks since...

Jackson‘s pick-six on Sunday. In a film breakdown posted by the Patriots, Belichick shows how Barmore’s pressure on Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold forced the interception. “It’s a good play here by Barmore. Barmore sees the backfield play action go away from him and is able to recognize that and go up the field and chase Darnold,” Belichick said. “This is a real tough situation for the quarterback.” Belichick also noted that linebacker Matt Judon, who had initially dropped into coverage, came off his receiver and pressured Darnold into an errant throw. “By the time Darnold recognizes it, he tries to flip the ball and it’s an errant throw and J.C. picks it off and there they go. But this is one of those pressures that...
    There were many people who may not have wanted to admit it, but they yearned for Belichick to fail miserably. To them, he was a curmudgeon. He didn't play nice with the media, and others didn't agree with his political leanings. This year's Patriots were expected to struggle again, but at 5-4 they are now just half a game behind the Buffalo Bills in the AFC East. Three of their four losses have come by a combined nine points. Strangely enough, they have suffered all their losses at home, but are now 4-0 on the road. They are a team surging in confidence and getting better each week. Yeah, I know, Belichick is an easy guy to hate. He's not a warm-and-fuzzy guy. What really grinds the gears of those who aren't Patriots fans is that he really doesn't seem to care. He's about football and really nothing else. Belichick is cold, calculating, and at times seemingly heartless — ask Stephon Gilmore, and before him, Lawyer Milloy and Richard Seymour. Belichick wouldn't have hesitated to shoot Old Yeller.

    Long gone are the days of Vince Lombardi or Tom Landry patrolling the NFL sideline in a shirt and tie, but there has to be a happy medium between a tux and the attire Bill Belichick showed up wearing Sunday. The old adage ‘dress for the job you want, not the one you have’ doesn’t appear to apply to the New England Patriots head coach. Belichick is one of the best coaches in NFL history, maybe the greatest of all time. But he pays no attention to fashion. Maybe Belichick spends all of his time prepping for the game that there just isn’t a minute left in the day to pick out his clothes. Even with the extra hour that daylight savings offered, Belichick showed up to Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers with possibly his most cringeworthy outfit yet. Was it a two-tone blue and gray hoodie? Or did Belichick wear a crop top over his sweatshirt? And the pant leg being rolled up high enough to expose about six inches of skin even while wearing...
    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Last week, Stephon Gilmore told the media that he has some lingering resentment toward the Patriots regarding the way his quadriceps injury was handled.

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Try, for one second, to estimate how many football players Bill Belichick has coached in his life. It’s ridiculous. From his days with the Baltimore Colts in 1975, to his work with receivers and special teams in Detroit, to his year with the Broncos, to his dozen years with the Giants, four with the Browns, one with Bill Parcells in New England, three more with Parcells and the Jets, and the 20-plus seasons as the head coach of the New England Patriots, Bill Belichick has coached a lot of players. A lot of players. It stood out quite a bit, then, when the 69-year-old head coach expressed his amazement at the athleticism of Jamie Collins late Sunday afternoon. Collins had come up with an interception during the Patriots’ 24-6 win over the Panthers in Carolina, and he did so by leaping at the line of scrimmage and snatching a Sam Darnold pass out of midair.

The Patriots’ head coach was simply not messing around on Sunday in Charlotte, as he showed up to Bank of America Stadium in his sweats. With one pant leg up up near the knee, the other pant leg up on the calf, and some high white tube socks, Belichick sauntered into the stadium dressed like a man focused on football and not much else.

    BOSTON (CBS) — Perhaps Bill Belichick couldn’t decide what to wear on Sunday. Perhaps he threw on a sweatshirt without realizing he had already thrown on a sweatshirt. Perhaps he was a bit chilly. Whatever the circumstances were, the end result was that Bill Belichick reinvented the hoodie game forever when he arrived for work at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte for the game between his New England Patriots and the Carolina Panthers. While Belichick has long been famous for sporting hooded sweatshirts with cutoff sleeves, he’s never quite rocked anything quite like this: a crop top gray hoodie on top of a navy blue hoodie.

    Getty Bill Belichick One question is if Bill Belichick would risk bringing in such a big personality or impact player during the season. A reporter asked Belichick the question on Friday, November 5, and the legendary coach didn’t sound too afraid of making a splash. In fact, he made reference to specific instances when he’s made similar moves. ALL the latest Patriots news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Patriots newsletter here! Join Heavy on Patriots! Odell Beckham Jr. Could Transform the Patriots’ Passing Game? If the Patriots’ offense is missing something, it’s a pass-catcher capable of commanding double team and/or racking up yards in run-after-the-catch situations. Beckham Jr. can be that kind of guy for New England. There may be some trepidation about his potential impact on the overall chemistry, but New England could simply release him if there are any distractions. Considering Beckham is 30 years old and years into his career, you’d like to think he’s very aware of his football mortality. Translation: this might be one of his last...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Bill Belichick is known for throwing his challenge flag when a lot of other NFL coaches would keep it firmly tucked into their sock. Such was the case during the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 27-24 win over the Los Angeles Chargers, when Belichick decided to challenge a holding penalty by the Chargers. It was a pretty big challenge, because as Belichick saw it, New England linebacker Kyle Van Noywas being held in the end zone. Had Belichick gotten the call to go in his favor, the Patriots would have been rewarded with a safety, the ball, and a lead over Los Angeles.

When he saw the play, Belichick believed that offensive lineman Storm Norton had held Van Noy...
    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Bill Belichick often makes mid-game calls that no other NFL coaches would make. Usually, that’s a good thing. On Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles, it wasn’t quite a successful moment. READ MORE: US Postal Service Says No Mail-In Ballots Were Thrown Out In South Boston After AllegationsBelichick threw his challenge flag following a holding penalty on the Chargers, hoping to turn a standard penalty call into one that resulted in a safety. It didn’t work out. The moment came with 12:25 left in the fourth quarter. A 14-yard completion from Justin Herbert to Stephen Anderson was negated by a holding penalty on offensive lineman Matt Feiler, who hauled Christian Barmore to the ground near the 5-yard line. The penalty was enforced, but before the Chargers ran their play on second-and-12, Belichick threw his red challenge flag.

    FOXBORO (CBS) — Bill Belichick isn’t one to play favorites on the football field. So it shouldn’t be too surprising that he feels the same way when it comes to Halloween candy.

    New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is reportedly very generous with his money. In Seth Wickersham’s book “It’s Better To Be Feared,” it’s alleged that the legendary head coach would pay coaches under the table for going above and beyond their job expectations, according to Yahoo Sports. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Wickersham wrote the following in his book, according to the report from Yahoo Sports: Belichick would reward the coaches who made little, out of his own pocket. During the season, he gave out what were called ‘green balls,’ wads of cash that could reach thousands of dollars. After the season, he would write a personal check to staffers who had overperformed – sometimes up to the six figures. While it’s just a report and Belichick hasn’t confirmed it, I think I speak for most people when I say I hope it’s true because it’s one hell of an awesome report. Imagine just walking around with wads of cash to randomly give people for doing an outstanding job. If I was in...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Julian Edelman has been a part of many regular-season wins in New England. He’s not sure he’s seen anything like what happened on Sunday. On “Inside The NFL” on Paramount+, the highlights from Sunday’s Patriots-Jets game featured numerous clips of Bill Belichick mic’d up. While Belichick was his usual self on the sidelines during the game, it was his smile while talking to special teams coordinator Cam Achord toward the very end of the game that left Edelman feeling stunned.

That’s all right — 550 yards of offense. Four-hundred and 150. I mean … damn.” Belichick, who of course has no love in his heart for the New York Jets, then looked onto the field with a nice grin. Edelman couldn’t believe this.  In his “What are we doing?” segment, he expressed his shock. READ MORE: 'This Is A Long-Haul Event': Duxbury Could Remain Without Power...
    Getty Bill Belichick The New England Patriots destroyed the New York Jets on Sunday 54-13, and some of the members of Gang Green are upset about the way it all went down.

With things well in hand, Belichick continued to not only throw the ball, but to take deep shots down the field. “ALL the latest Patriots news straight to your inbox!

Sometimes, though, Belichick ratchets things up to another level.

The second-year Chargers QB has been excellent since getting his first opportunity ahead of schedule last year, earning Offensive Rookie of the Year honors. On Monday morning, Belichick was asked what has made Herbert so successful so soon in his NFL career. “Because he’s really good,” Belichick answered. “Yeah, he’s really good. I thought he was outstanding [coming out of college]. He just really had everything you’re looking for — he’s very athletic, good arm, a lot of poise, played well at Oregon, just a number of big plays. All the passes.

    Bill Belichick’s main concern for any beer he’s consuming is whether or not it’s cold. According to Mike Reiss, the head coach of the New England Patriots appeared on The Greg Hill Show early Monday morning and was asked if he could only have one beer, what he’d choose. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Belichick, who has won six Super Bowls with the Pats, responded with, “Whatever’s cold.” Question (via @TheGregHillShow): If you could order one beer, what would be your choice? Bill Belichick: “Whatever’s cold.” ???????? — Mike Reiss (@MikeReiss) October 25, 2021 I love this answer from Belichick. In fact, I’d argue that it’s the only correct answer to the question.

    Getty Bill Belichick The New England Patriots dominated the New York Jets on Sunday in every facet of American football on Sunday to the tune of a 54-13 beatdown. However, if you wanted to sum up this game in six words, they would be: Bill Belichick really hates the Jets. Running the score up is generally frowned upon in sports, but in some instances where there is extreme hate involved, you may see a coach throw caution to the wind. Sunday, or perhaps any day Belichick has a chance to rub it in the face of the Jets. The Patriots had this game well in hand midway through the third quarter, but Belichick would not take his foot off the gas. What does that mean? Well, not only did the Patriots go for 54 points, they did it in the most merciless, technically unnecessary way possible. Belichick had his offense throwing deep routes with 30-point leads in the fourth quarter, and literally taking every opportunity to add more points. Belichick didn’t call off the dogs until the 2-minute...

And Belichick stressed the “Everything.” That was the first word Belichick said when asked what made Seymour great, before giving several long and detailed answers about what kind of player Seymour was. “Everything. Yeah. Richard was a tremendous player,” Belichick said. “He had a tremendous skill set. He had great length. Explosive. Very quick for his size. He could do everything. He started his career at the nose, which was not really his best position, but he could play it for sure, and we needed...

    Getty N'Keal Harry It’s not really up for debate, the New England Patriots drafting N’Keal Harry with the 32nd pick in the 2019 NFL Draft was a mistake. The question is: how big of a mistake?

At least one person thinks so and he might be on the something.Is N’Keal Harry the Worst Acquisition on Bill Belichick’s Watch?Some times we hear comments or read headlines that sound like the writer is a prisoner of the moment.

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — The Patriots didn’t play their most aggressive game on Sunday. They lost in overtime to the Cowboys. While a loss is comprised of a number of elements, a couple of coaching decisions By Belichick stood out. One came just before the Cowboys blocked a punt deep in Patriots territory. On a third-and-9 in the second quarter, coming out of a timeout, Mac Jones fired a pass to Jakobi Meyers, who made the catch right at the line to gain — the 36-yard line. Meyers did end up falling backward, behind the line to gain, but he had seemingly secured possession with his forward progress being past the sticks. But the officials ruled him a full yard short, at the 35-yard line. CBS color commentator Tony Romo suggested it would have been a good opportunity to throw a challenge flag. Many Patriots fans agreed. Here’s the play in question: Jakobi Meyers’ catch (GIF from NFL.com/GamePass) And here are some still shots of where Meyers secured the catch, but also where his momentum led him:...
