Bill Belichick is known for a number of things, namely: winning and the hoodie.
He is not known for controversial comments, especially ones insulting an opposing team. Which is why it was so surprising to hear that following the Patriots 37-16 victory over the Jets, Belichick said:
“Thirty-seven points on the best defense in the league, s— my d—.”
Before you ask yourself who kidnapped Bill Belichick and replaced him with a WWE wrestler, you need to take two things into account. First of all this was a statement Belichick made while walking off the field with his son, and not something he wanted others to hear.
When asked about the comments he said,
“Any conversations I had privately I’ll keep private.”
Another thing to consider is that Bill Belichick is just secretly a brilliant trash talker (only time will tell whether or not these recent comments outrank the classic “can you look at the scoreboard?”on the Belichick put down list).
And of course playing against the rival Jets and the biggest trash talking head coach in the NFL may have had something to do with it.
Of course upon hearing this Rex Ryan, brash as ever even after a blowout loss, stated:
“(It’s) something I’ll bring up to him after we beat ‘em in the playoffs again this year.”
Solid comeback Rex, but of course it will not mean much if the Jets miss out of the playoffs, and at 5-4 they will have to have a very strong second half to even qualify for the playoffs.
Ryan should focus on his team and the games ahead and admit that he got out-coached, and out-talked this game by Bill Belichick.
