Aside from noting that rookie inside linebacker Brandon Spikes is rusty since his return from a four-game suspension, not much emanated from a round of conference calls with Bill Belichick, Nick Caserio and linebackers coach Matt Patricia today. So we'll keep tossing logs on the obligatory verbal warfare. Belichick engaged a bit, answering thusly when asked about Ryan's proclamation this is "Ryan vs. Belichick." "Well, I might have a little quickness on him," said Belichick. "Hes probably got a little more strength and power on me. So, I dont think youll see either one of us out there making any blocks or tackles or runs or throws or catches. At least you wont see me doing it. Its probably a good thing for our team." Belichick really has yet to publicly show any irritation with Ryan.Really, since he'sjoined the Jets, Belichick seems wholly unperturbed by Ryan. Amused, even. Maybe because, in the end, Ryan's just doing Belichick's motivational work for him. Asked about Ryan's approach, Belichick said,"I just try to coach my team. Im not really worried about how everybody else coaches theirs. Everybodys got their own style and a lot of coaches do a great job. Rex does a great job with his team. Im just trying to coach mine. Im not really worried about what anybody else is doing."
