FOXBORO -- Patriots head coach Bill Belichick held his year-end press conference Monday after his team's AFC Championship loss.
Though he made it clear personnel decisions would not be discussed, saying, "Now is not the time," he made an exception for himself.
The NFL's longest-tenured coach will return for another season.
"I'll be here. You'll have to deal with me again next year. I know it's disappointing for a lot of people," he grinned sardonically.
"Until I'm told otherwise, I plan on being here."
Belichick, 60, has worked in the league for 38 years. His next season will be his 14th as New England's bench boss.
Tom Brady’s annual attempt at making the collective testicles of New England draw up into its stomach has succeeded.
Brady posted on Instagram and Facebook a video (see below) of him skiing somewhere that we aren’t. He approaches a decent-sized jump, hits it, appears to stick the landing, blurts, “Whoa…” and then the camera shows an empty ski and a lifeless body.
Actually, no lifeless body. Watched it a second time. No lifeless body.
Brady has graduated from sliding down waterslides and cliff-diving to this latest offseason effort to make sure everyone still cares about his safety.
Next season, Russian Roulette.
Rumor has it there are NFL teams willing to send a 'blockbuster trade' to the New England Patriots for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Mike Giardi describes what he thinks would be a blockbuster trade for Jimmy G.
