FOXBORO - Tom Brady said that, after the Patriots fell behind the Dolphins last week, Bill Belichick raged at the team in the halftime locker room.Asked byESPN if Belichick unloaded on the team after it fell behind Miami 17-0, Brady said, "He did and we deserved it. He's just relentless. He never lets up. He puts the pressure on the team week in and week out."Brady said it in a complimentary way. He knows the style works. He and Belichick have the record forwins by a coach-quarterback combo to prove it. "I think that's pretty cool," Brady said when asked about that record. "I've experienced a lot with him over the years. He's the only coach I've had in the pros, I've been very fortunate. He has high expectations for us. He treats me like I'm a rookie. He says, 'We can't complete a slip screen in two consecutive weeks. What are we doing?!' You don't want to hear that all the time when you're a 12-year veteran who's won a ton of games with him. But then you think, 'You know what? He's right.' And that's what I need to do better."
