Belichick: Brissett handles himself great, all week, every day

New England Patriots quarterback Jacoby Brissett (7) hands to the football to head coach Bill Belichick after rushing for his first career touchdown during the first half of an NFL football game against the Houston Texans Thursday, Sept. 22, 2016, in Foxborough, Mass. (AP Photo/Elise Amendola) AP

Patriots coach Bill Belichick attributes rookie quarterback Jacoby Brissett’s success to his hard work.

“He handled himself great last week, this week, all week every day,” Belichick said of Brissett after the Patriots blew out the Texans on Thursday night. “He’s done nothing but come in here and work has hard as he possibly can. When we had three quarterbacks to take his opportunities and learn from the other guys, when it was him and Jimmy he learned from Jimmy, and this week it was pretty much all him. He’s a hard-working kid. . . . He just wants to do what the coach wants to do. I’m glad to have him.”

Brissett gave the Patriots a running element that Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo don’t, and in the first quarter he ran for a 27-yard touchdown — a longer run than Brady has ever had in his entire NFL career. Brissett ran off the field and gave the football to Belichick, but Belichick said he is making sure Brissett takes it home with him.

“I was just holding the ball for him. That’s his first touchdown ball. That’ll go on his trophy case,” Belichick said.

Other than the long touchdown run, Brissett didn’t do anything fancy: He went just 11-for-19 for 103 yards. But the Patriots now know that when Brady returns from his suspension and Garoppolo’s injured shoulder heals, they have three quarterbacks they can win with. Belichick has to feel good about that.

    Brissett showed he has potential, but he’s certainly not ready to carry the team on his back, as Tom Brady has often done. Luckily for him, he’ll be going back to 3rd string where he can learn and develop out of the spotlight..

    From the looks of things, some QB hungry franchise is going to get themselves a pretty good player when the Patriots put Jimmy Garopollo on the market this offseason. A special shout out to Roger Goodell who took Garopollo from an unknown backup to a battle tested NFL starter. It’s possible that the Patriots could receive 2 first rounders and two fourth rounders when he’s made available in trade. Thanks, buddy!

    It is time for us to admit that Belichick is the one and only reason the Patriots are great always. It does not matter who the QB is. Brady, Castle, Garoppolo or Brissett. In coaching ranks this has to put him at the top. As for QB rankings this has got to move Brady down.

    The bad news is that Brissett over-threw multiple receivers ……. the good news is, that kid has a CANNON for an arm! Once he gets his timing down more, he’s going to be the guy everyone thought Michael Vick was GOING to be!

    Unlike most other “running” quarterbacks, Brissett has the ability to stay cool in the pocket, and read the defense, running as a last resort, instead of his first instinct. He’s really going to benefit from the coaching of Bill Belichick.

    This morning, Roger Gooddell has to wake up and see that the Patriots blew out the defensive powerhouse that is supposed to be the Houston Texans, and they did it with a THIRD STRING ROOKIE!!!!!

    Sucks to be you, Roger 😉

    “He’s done nothing but come in here and work has hard as he possibly can.”

    And that’s what it’s all about in NE. The trolls loved to talk about NE crashing when Brady retires but they just kept winning. Now the troll mantra is that it’s a ‘system’ and any QB can run it. Except they ran the option last night, Brady has never run the option and neither did Cassell or Garoppolo. The truth is they really are one of the smartest kids in the class and no one works harder. The real reason the trolls hate the Pats is they throw off the grading curve.

    New to football I see. This would have been 2x worse for Houston had TB been there. They left 3-4 scores on the field playing safe.

    It doesn’t have to be an either or thing with Belichick and Brady, why can’t they both be great. I never hear anyone downplaying Montana because he had the great Bill Walsh coaching him, especially where Steve Young came in and had another HOF career and won a SB. That some how makes Montana worse? Doesn’t make sense.

    And as happy as I am that Brissett played well, he was 11-19 for like 100yds. Not exactly a world beater, but he displayed a lot of intangibles as a rookie and took care of the football.

    Credit the defensive game plan more than Brissett, they allowed 0 points.

  14. skoobyfl says: Sep 23, 2016 7:04 AM

    Dear NFL,

    If you continue to allow players to disrespect the flag or the national anthem and all the values they stands for, plan on losing many more fans soon. I for one haven’t really bothered tuning in much this year after the national disgraces I’ve witnesssed, nor will I support it ongoing.

    Your entertainment to millions and watching multi-millionaire athletes try to send me a message sickens me personally. Politics isn’t the reason for the TV ratings drop, it’s shame. Shame on you for not taking a stand for our soldiers and the flags you have always proudly flown, acknowledging so many sacrifices.

    Get your league together or your losing me and many others as fans soon, anti-American sentiment will be the reason. Next up for me will be whoever advertises with you, I’ll avoid them like the plague. Take heed, many feel this way as you’ll see by all the thanks below this common sense post. Common sense sorely lacking lately for many lucky people who call the U.S. home but don’t want to work for a living, it’s sickening.

    Signed,

    A common working man.

    It is no secret that Bill Belichick is the Greatest Head Coach of All-Time and the Greatest GM of All-Time, what we don’t know with regards to Belichick is…

    1. When will the league come to their senses and rename the Lombardi Trophy the Belichick Trophy?

    2. If the NFL Executive Committee, NFL Competition Committee, and 30 of the other 31 NFL organizations (pass to Saints) had not been in a cheating collusion to steal draft picks and make other cheating efforts to weaken the Pats over the last 10+ seasons, how many Super Bowls would the Patriot have won during that period led by Belichick and Tom Brady, the Greatest NFL Player of All-Time?

    3. Will Belichick be inducted into the Hall-of-Fame twice, once as a Head Coach and a second time as a GM, or will he be inducted once and given two busts to be placed in the Belichick Wing of the Hall-of-Fame that is being planned?

  19. gogreenbiotch says: Sep 23, 2016 7:27 AM

    I just want to say this is coming from an eagles fan.. BB is the best football coach I have seen in my 36 years at any level. TB is the best qb. The pats very well could go undefeated this year. That defense is special. It’s the pats at one level and everybody else looking up. If you think it’d bad now, wait till an angry TB comes back with something to prove. It’s scary how good this team can be. As a fan of football I tip my cap to NE and will be enjoying them thrashing the NFL this year. I only hope the Wentz Pedersen combination can give us eagles fans 1/3 of what BB and TB have given Boston. Bye the bye, love the pats color rush jersey

    ———————————————–

    Only one problem here… many of us predicted the Patriots would keep winning BEFORE the season, not “now”… because yes, Brady was a system QB. No crash, just continuing on winning thanks to the system and the typical weak schedule with teams like Miami and Houston.
    Cassell, Brady, Jimmy, Brisset, an orange traffic cone… the system rolls on regardless of the interchangeable parts.

    Brisket was decent but the Texans beat themselves. You don’t win much when you give up two special teams turnovers. Larger credit goes to Pats D and special teams.

    ________________________________________ NO, it doesn’t move Brady an inch. It means Garapollo is good, and Brissett is serviceable. One and only reason? Are you stupid? Do you even watch football? That is a team LOADED with talent. Coaching and game plan matter, as you can clearly see by how much better the O line is with Scar back in coaching them, but you have to have talented players. Brady is the GOAT. So is BB. It’s not a one or the other deal, if you have half a brain.

  33. carloswlassiter says: Sep 23, 2016 8:25 AM

    Great win, but I expect a close game against Buffalo regardless of their record coming in. Unless the Bills players have all given up by then which is possible.

    But it would be extremely satisfying for the Patriots to play the Bills with Brissett still behind center and pound that team so badly that Ryan gets canned the next morning.

    It would be the ultimate response to Rex’s years of flapping his lips about Belichick.

  34. bulbsboss says: Sep 23, 2016 8:39 AM

  35. flaccojumpball says: Sep 23, 2016 8:43 AM

    I like that there is seemingly a new solid black QB in the league. I hate that he plays for that team. I’d love to see how Jacoby would handle being a starting QB for a team that doesn’t steal signals and manipulate ball pressure. I think it’s time for Roger to order another PSI check or check the headsets to make those are working as well. I can assure you none of these wins are legitimate just like none have been the whole time Tom “system QB” Shady has been there.

  36. wensink18 says: Sep 23, 2016 8:44 AM

    I remember a time when Roger Goodell said that Tom Brady gained a competitive advantage, similar to PED use, from some concocted ,make believe, accusation about a miniscule alteration in air pressure in footballs. Lots or people saw this as a chance to call the organization “cheaters.” Those people rejoiced and celebrated a 4 game suspension and waited anxiously to watch the Patriots lose 4 games. And then… reality set it. And Patriot Nation rejoiced.

  37. johnnyblood24 says: Sep 23, 2016 8:54 AM

    I can’t wait for a reporter to ask Belichick whether there’s a scenario in which Brissett could start in Week 5.

  38. daddeeo says: Sep 23, 2016 9:00 AM

  39. bigbear331313 says: Sep 23, 2016 9:09 AM

    Poor butt hurt, willfully ignorant Trolls…Trying sooooo hard to knock Brady and the Patriots down. Unable to understand that all QBs play/have a system and Brady runs his system better than any QB in NFL history.

    Roger has them thinking their opinions matters and if they whimper it long enough it makes it true.

    Sorry Trolls, You Lose Again! (On the field and on the message boards.)

    Run along now…Time to start fabricating your excuses and accusations about Brissett.

    So based on your logic….
    2010 Ben R. Missed 4 games due to a suspension
    Steelers go 3-1 Ben = system QB

    Montana gets traded , young comes in and wins a SB
    Montana and young = system QB
    Farve gets traded Rogers comes in packers keep winning and win a SB
    Farve and Rogers = system QB

    Again I’ll ask YOU the question. How is it ALL these former and current players and coaches who call Brady one of or if not the GOAT are ALL wrong but you have it all figured out?

    You’re just another jealous troll boy, plain and simple
    If the Patriots were 0-3 you would be on here saying the exact opposite “BB can’t win with Brady”

    Again tell us how all these coaches and players are all wrong about Brady. You can’t.

    Even Patriot fans did not expect this start of the 2016 season. But even fans from across the league who love this game and wish their teams have a great season, it’s no reason to not appreciate what the Patriots do. It brings the sport down and makes sharing this great game with poor sports and trolls, who come on this site and say the same stupid things out of jealousy much worse than it should be. I love the game and admire greatness in other players and teams around the league. I am a true football fan and I know it’s not about one player, or one team. Today hats off to the Pats.

    The best part of last night was knowing this dudes world is shattered. Read between the lines on his previous pathetic excuse making posts.

    This game was ugly to watch unless you were a Pats fan, my thoughts.

    1. Belichick totally out-schooled Bryan. Maybe the most lopsided coaching lesson in a long time.
    2. In the AFC, unless you are a fan of the Pats, Steelers, or Broncos, you can forget it. Your team has no chance. look forward to next year.
    3. Texans are frauds. 27-0??? The 3rd string NE QB outplays the $18 million man
    4. When Brady returns it will look like 2007 again. Pats will run up scores bigtime

    That’s why football is a team game. The TEAM won the game, not the QB, and that’s fine. Brissett did exactly what his coaches wanted him to do.

    I love the talk about Belichick’s system. All NFL coaches have a system, it’s just that Belichick is better at fitting players to his system than the other guys. He values hard working, versatile players that he can rotate to keep other teams guessing. It also gives him more depth that other teams. I mean, how many teams don’t even have one competent QB? NE has three!

    …..

    He wasn’t “bailed out”, he was given optimal field position by the Pats D/special teams and the Texans poor play. “Bailed out” would imply giving up turnovers and scoring by the defense. Brissett was fine and didn’t make any big mistakes. The play calling was very conservative to minimize rookie mistakes. It was a best case scenario for a first NFL start with only a few days prep. But I agree that the main reason for the Pats win was the D and the Texans beating themselves.

    It is time for us to admit that Belichick is the one and only reason the Patriots are great always. It does not matter who the QB is. Brady, Castle, Garoppolo or Brissett. In coaching ranks this has to put him at the top. As for QB rankings this has got to move Brady down.

    ………..

    How many playoff wins do those other QBs have? Better yet, how many playoff teams have those players led? Look at what a great QB like Carson Palmer did last year in the NFC title game or the king of one-and-dones, Peyton Manning’s rep was for a long time. Brady’s biggest value is in the 4th quarter of a tight playoff game, for that he will always be among the very best at the position of all time.

    The Patriots are smart about figuring out what players can and can’t do, then minimizing the weaknesses. They didn’t put Brissett in position to fail. The two fumbled kick off returns were a nice gift from Houston, but the Pats took advantage of it.

    I don’t think its ever been more clear that the Bills are not a National Football League team. They don’t play in the same league as winning teams. They’re a punchline who provides either an automatic win on other teams’ schedules or a baffling loss where you want to kill yourself the rest of the year because of it.

  70. buffalostarwarsfan says: Sep 23, 2016 11:04 AM

    How many playoff wins do those other QBs have? Better yet, how many playoff teams have those players led? Look at what a great QB like Carson Palmer did last year in the NFC title game or the king of one-and-dones, Peyton Manning’s rep was for a long time. Brady’s biggest value is in the 4th quarter of a tight playoff game, for that he will always be among the very best at the position of all time.

    —–

    Cassel was the only one who had a chance to lead a team to the playoffs and he went 11-5 and missed on a fluke. That’s a bad argument. Also the “king of one-and-dones” went 3-1 against Brady in AFC championships, so…

    Bottom line: you are a moron!

    So based on your logic….
    2010 Ben R. Missed 4 games due to a suspension
    Steelers go 3-1 Ben = system QB

    Montana gets traded , young comes in and wins a SB
    Montana and young = system QB
    Farve gets traded Rogers comes in packers keep winning and win a SB
    Farve and Rogers = system QB

    Again I’ll ask YOU the question. How is it ALL these former and current players and coaches who call Brady one of or if not the GOAT are ALL wrong but you have it all figured out?
    ———————————————

    First of all, it’s not my fault that there’s been “system QB” talk about Brady for almost as long as he’s been in the league, starting with being a relative unknown 6th rounder (unlike these guys you listed above who were stars coming out of college). It’s not some new “trolling tool” as much as you’d like to believe that… it’s the same talk that surfaced in ’08 with Cassel.

    As for Ben’s absence, the Steelers won in SPITE of Dixon, who put up QB ratings nowhere near what Jimmy G. (or even Brissett) did… the drop-off when Roethlisberger or Rodgers goes out is severe, the Pats seem just fine when Brady leaves. Those are facts.

    The Young and Rodgers comparison is silly… both are proven HOF material whose teams just happened to have the good fortune to have waiting in the wings. You gonna tell me Jimmy G. or Brissett are HOF material too?

Shame on you for not taking a stand for our soldiers and the flags you have always proudly flown, acknowledging so many sacrifices.

    Get your league together or your losing me and many others as fans soon, anti-American sentiment will be the reason. Next up for me will be whoever advertises with you, I’ll avoid them like the plague. Take heed, many feel this way as you’ll see by all the thanks below this common sense post. Common sense sorely lacking lately for many lucky people who call the U.S. home but don’t want to work for a living, it’s sickening.

    Joe Montana was a 3rd round pick , young sucked in Tampa

    Farve was just a backup QB in Atlanta before he went to Green Bay

    No one said Brissett is A HOF QB
    He did nothing special last night except for the 1 long run. Only passed for 97 yards. They won last night because of the D and turnovers and field positions

    As for Jimmy he’s only played 6 Q

    The point is to try and discredit Brady because the team is 3-0 is crazy

    And yes you can have a great QB and a great Coach

    Kind of scary what Belichick could possibly do with him because people forget he was in Florida for more time than he was at NC State learning pro style concepts. Put that kind of athletic ability with the ability to understand what a lot of the spread system QBs don’t because they never were exposed to them in colelge like what happend with Russell Wilson because of his NC State time, and oh boy. This is kind of becoming unfair for the rest of the league. They already barely can beat Belichick. Just think of this kid with more time learning in Belichick’s QB room.

    Except that they have never made the playoffs without Brady over the last 16 yrs, so yes, there has been a drop off. And with an almost identical team, Cassel did well but dropped 5 wins from previous year and the team did not score nearly as much and they missed the playoffs. That is not insignificant. Those are facts.
    And Brady’s best value is in the 4th quarter of a tight playoff game where he is the all time leader in comebacks. You can’t just throw anyone out there and have them do what Brady does in that situation.

    It is time for us to admit that Belichick is the one and only reason the Patriots are great always. It does not matter who the QB is. Brady, Castle, Garoppolo or Brissett. In coaching ranks this has to put him at the top. As for QB rankings this has got to move Brady down.

    ——————————————————————–

    You are very mistaken. Last night the Patriots put the training wheels on for Brissett. They crafted a lot of gadget plays and were very conservative on the number of passes. They did their best to insulate and protect Brissett.

    With Brady, there are no training wheels. The game plan is much more aggressive and demanding. In other words, if they ran the same plays they would have if it were Tom they probably would have lost that game since it would have been way too risky.

    The game plan last night is not something you’d do every week. It wouldn’t work well that way.

    So, your assertion that it doesn’t matter what QB plays for the Pats is dead wrong.

I’d love to see how Jacoby would handle being a starting QB for a team that doesn’t steal signals and manipulate ball pressure. I think it’s time for Roger to order another PSI check or check the headsets to make those are working as well. I can assure you none of these wins are legitimate just like none have been the whole time Tom “system QB” Shady has been there.

    _______________________________________

    Of course it’s a system. Every team has one. At the core of the Pat’s “system” is dedication to lower risk/lower reward plays. Kind of like low margin / high volume retail. The system requires a QB who can complete both a quick pre snap read, identify their keys and then a quick post snap read of those keys, process it and throw a quick and ACCURATE delivery at very high speeds. It requires every offensive player to have the same reads and reaction relative to their role and execute as a unit. It has resulted in a team consistently at the top in points scored and games won as well as consistently being at the bottom in turnovers and penalties. Ergo they get players that have the skill sets to fill those roles. Far from a QB friendly system, idiotic comment.

    —————-

    Not true. Bledsoe had a chance in 2000. 5-11 Brady won the championship with them next year. Bledsoe the first overall pick.

    As for Cassel, Brady won 5 more games with that team than Cassel did. 16-0. Any doubt that if Brady didn’t get hurt their record would have been better than 11-5 and they would have made the playoffs? 5 games is like the difference between 5-11 and 10-6. Night and day.

    Also, Brady has played in 10 AFC championship games. 10! He’s also been to more super bowls than any other QB. If you are trying to say it looks bad that Brady lost 3 (and 2 very close) AFC championship games against Manning that makes no sense. No player ever comes away unscathed in the NFL. Montana was 4-0 in Super Bowls but he still lost the week before plenty of times. The greatest of the great still have lots of bad losses in this sport.

    There’s nothing else to it. Brady won 4 Super Bowls. It doesn’t really matter if people think it was because of him or because of Belichick. They still won. And every Patriots fan hopes Garoppolo is the next Brady and they keep winning long after Brady retires.

    Brady broke the TD record in 2007 and went 16-0. He’s carried the team on his own at times like in 2010 when he was the unanimous league MVP. Belichick can win without Brady, but there’s no way he would have won ask much.

    Brady’s average wins per season is 12 for goodness sake.

    Belichick didn’t do that with Bledsoe in 2000 or Cassel in 2008 and there’s no way he could do that with Brissett either. The kid threw for 100 yards.

    Garoppolo may be another story though. He looked great. He might have “it”. Durability obviously could be a problem though.

    Montana was great. Partially because he was great, partially because of Walsh. Same goes for Young.

    Garoppolo may just be a good player. Bledsoe and Cassel never looked like Jimmy G. did in the first quarter against Miami.

  107. patsfan4lifesbchamps says: Sep 23, 2016 12:43 PM

    What exactly does Brady do in this system that Garoppolo and Brissette can’t? Are there throws that only Brady can make? A QB in this system is expected to execute plays given to him by the offensive coordinator and BB. I believe all of three QBs are capable of doing so. Sure Brady has more experience in the system but so can any other QB if given a chance.

    Brady is done in New England. He’ll come back and win his 5th ring and then BB will trade him to Buffalo for a 1st round pick. Then he’ll come here and suck. But anyone who thinks the Pats will let Garoppolo leave to keep a 40 year Brady are more delusional than Bills fans that thought Rex was a good hire.

    Oh, and Patriot fans why are you arguing about how good Brady is? Whatever the case is, he delivered under Belichick. I have no idea if he would have done it anywhere else, but who cares? He did it there. It’s the same argument I heard during Joe Montana’s career. Why are you knocking the fact that your coach basically can win with anyone. News flash, that’s a good thing. Also, I would think the “training wheels” would be on for Brissett. It’s exactly how theyw were on for Brady when they won their first Super Bowl. No shame in that. Again, not a bad thing that your coach can do that with different QBs and not miss a beat. I present again to those who doubt who Belichick is. He won with Vinny Testaverde and didn’t hide him that year in Cleveland when previously Testaverde had been terrible in Tampa.

    What exactly does Brady do in this system that Garoppolo and Brissette can’t? Are there throws that only Brady can make? A QB in this system is expected to execute plays given to him by the offensive coordinator and BB. I believe all of three QBs are capable of doing so. Sure Brady has more experience in the system but so can any other QB if given a chance.
    ………..

    All QBs are expected to execute plays given to them, who doesn’t? Maybe someone like prime Vick or Farve but they are the exception. No one would pick Brisset or Garrapolo over Brady to lead the team in the 4th quarter of a tight playoff game. All the physical tools in the world are useless if you aren’t up to it mentally. The pressure doesn’t bother him, that’s what makes him great, not that he has the best arm.

    Based on the overly defensive comments from Pats fans, everyone proved their points… Brady is overrated LMAO

    Same exact thing can be said of Manning and Brees but lets put Brady on a pedestal simply because he plays for the better coach SMH

    Right….Brady just calls the plays given to him.

    Christ!!! Stop trying so hard!

    No Manning was a terrible playoff crunch time QB for most of his career. Ty Law alone has 4 playoff INTs on him. Brees has not had a consistently great team around him. Brady on the other hand, had the benefit on a consistently great team (unlike Brees) AND consistently performed well under pressure (unlike Manning’s up and down track record). The facts back it up, Brady all time leader in playoff wins, playoff 4th qtr comebacks, SB appearances, tied for SB wins. SMH.

    Cassel was the only one who had a chance to lead a team to the playoffs and he went 11-5 and missed on a fluke. That’s a bad argument. Also the “king of one-and-dones” went 3-1 against Brady in AFC championships, so…

    …….

    Cassel ’08 vs. Brady ’07 is actually an excellent argument. The teams were almost identical. Cassel went 11-5, 21TD 11INT against a weaker schedule. Brady went 16-0, 50 TDS and 8 INTS and threw over 60 more pass attempts. But yea, they are basically the same player.

    And if Brady woke up tomorrow with Peyton Manning’s career he would be inconsolable.

    You forgot one other important fact: Brady plays for the best head coach ever… that just might have something to do with all the accolades mentioned. If Brady was on the Saints and Brees was on the patriots roster the last decade, their roles would be reversed and we’d be talking about how Brees is the GOAT. But every other fan besides Pats fans know that it take a lot more than having a great QB to win games consistently year in and year out… Its called having a genius for a head coach in Belichick

    I’m think you are a Steelers fan. It doesn’t matter

    2 weeks ago on ESPN Ben R. Called Brady the Best QB in the game today

    I pointed this out myself last week.

    Put any pro bowl caliber QB in the Patriots system and they still win 4 SBs. Brady isn’t doing anything that any other above average QB can’t do within the Patriots system.

    How many playoff wins do those other QBs have? Better yet, how many playoff teams have those players led? Look at what a great QB like Carson Palmer did last year in the NFC title game or the king of one-and-dones, Peyton Manning’s rep was for a long time. Brady’s biggest value is in the 4th quarter of a tight playoff game, for that he will always be among the very best at the position of all time.

    Not true. Bledsoe had a chance in 2000. 5-11 Brady won the championship with them next year. Bledsoe the first overall pick.
    —————————————————

    It was Bledsoe who threw the Patsie’s lone offensive TD in the AFC Championship and helped get them to the Super Bowl. Not Brady. Just sayin’

    The average Pro bowl QB couldn’t have been within a dropped pass of dragging a wr corps led by Reche Caldwell to the Sb. And its not about physical tools , Brady is the most mentally tough Qb ever. Name a Qb who could have fought through the deflategate circus And still won the SB with one of the greatest 4th qtrs by a SB Qb of all time.

    Drew Brees… But we’ll never know because he doesn’t have the fortune of playing his entire career under the best head coach of all time in Belichick

    Oh I thought you were going to say Jay Cutler or Matt Cassel, thanks for making my point
