Patriots coach Bill Belichick didn’t talk to CBS immediately after Sunday’s loss to the Ravens, but he did talk to the media afterward, and he continued emphasizing the same things: He was disappointed in losing, and he didn’t think the loss could be pinned on any one problem.
Asked to explain how disappointed he was, Belichick grew exasperated.
“We’re obviously disappointed that we didn’t win,” Belichick said. “I don’t know. I said that right off the bat. We’re disappointed in the results. What else do you want me to say?”
Belichick said “disappointed” or “disappointing” seven times in his comments to the media, and that was his theme from the start.
“Obviously a disappointing end to an overall pretty positive season,” Belichick said as he first stepped to the podium. “Tonight we just didn’t do enough things well enough to win. Give the Ravens credit; they’re a good football team. They just out-played us and out-coached us tonight. They just made more plays than we did. That’s pretty much the story.”
There’s not much more to say than that.
