Bill Belichick was his usual self in his post-game press conference, giving the media as little information as possible. He mentioned that losing Aqib Talib was a key play in the game, and he would have to go back to the tape to learn more of what happened. Some people have questioned Talib’s toughness in the hours following New England’s loss, but Belichick said that there “isn’t a more competitive player in that locker room than Aqib Talib”. I for one am not about to question number 31’s toughness, as based on what he was saying this whole week, if he was physically able, he would be playing in this game. Belichick also wouldn’t reveal too much information on why the Pats offense struggled all game, summing up his thoughts by saying, “we didn’t score enough points”.
But if there is one thing that we know as Patriot fans, it is that there is not a single man alive that we would rather have than Belichick leading our football team, no matter how many times he has come up just short of the Super Bowl in the past nine years. The man is an absolute football genius, and I know that he will have the team ready to make another deep postseason run next season.
