In a conference call on Friday, Belichick also commented on Logan Mankins new contract for the first time, and had nothing but good things to say about his offensive lineman.
I think the world of Logan, said Belichick. Hes done a great job for us here since hes come to the Patriots. Im glad that hell be here for many years in the future. Hes one of our best players, one of our most consistent players. Hes been durable, hes got a great work ethic, hes really smart, he plays hard, hes tough.
Hes an outstanding person, hes an outstanding player, and he does things the way that we would like our team to do them. So hes a great example for all of us to look at, because he plays hard, hes not selfish. Hes tough, he puts the team first. Hes a winner. Im glad we have him on our team.

Tom Brady didn’t go to the White House after the Patriots’ Super Bowl victory over the Seahawks, but the President thinks the Pats will be visiting 1600 Pensylvania Ave. again to be welcomed by President Trump (does that mean Brady goes?) or Clinton in the spring of 2017.
In an interview on Sirus/XM Radio with Sway Calloway, Obama sees a Pats-Seahawks rematch in Super Bowl 51. And if he were a betting man, he’d be going with New England, again.
“I’ve got to say at this point, you have to put your money on Brady again,” Obama said. “I don’t see any strong teams. Seattle and Patriots have a rematch. That’s my call.”
Obama and the nation will get a preview of his pick on Week 10 at Gillette Stadium when the Pats host the Seahawks.
Oh, and the President likes the Golden State Warriors, particularly with the addition of Kevin Durant, to reclaim the NBA title.
FOXBORO – After being unable to practice all week for the Buffalo Bills, running back LeSean McCoy is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Patriots due to a hamstring injury.
Already ruled out for Buffalo are wide receiver Marquise Goodwin and safety Aaron Williams.
The Bills also have a fleet of players listed as questionable including DT Bryant Corbin (shoulder), TE Charles Clay (knee), DT Marcell Dareus (hamstring), RB Mike Gillislee (foot), TE Cordy Glenn (ankle), LB Jerry Hughes (hand), LB Lerentee McCray (knee), G John Miller (shoulder) and WR Robert Woods.
The skill position dings to Goodwin, McCoy, Clay, Gillislee, Glenn and Woods have to be a concern for the Bills who already have their best wideout, Sammy Watkins, on injured reserve.
