Patriots coach Bill Belichick and Jaguars front office boss Tom Coughlin have faced off in a couple of Super Bowls, and now they may meet up in a couple of preseason practices.

Belichick and Coughlin have discussed having some joint practices between their teams this preseason, Mike Reiss of ESPN reports.

The Patriots and Jaguars will meet in New England in Week One of the preseason, so the Jaguars could travel north a couple days early for practices before the first game.

Belichick is a big believer in using joint practices to measure the progress of his team in training camp, and he’s also discussing joint practices with the Texans.

  1. No doubt there was some confusion among many of the players when first hearing of a “joint practices.” After all, generally they roll blunts, not joints.

  2. I dont see there being a lot if shenanigans at practice if those are the two guts running the teams.

  3. Tom,

    See if you could smuggle back a few players for us. One with the namesake of yours would be nice.

  4. Belichick will use it as a scared straight thing. “Any guy who walks through the drills is going home on the Jacksonville bus.”

  5. Science will always say that the PSI in the footballs dropped due to the cold/wet weather conditions. Unfortunately, even after Roger Goodell figured that out they decided to dupe gullible people by telling the “56 nfl deflategate lies”.

    For some reason the NFL still hasn’t issued a press release containing the PSI information that was collected during the 2015 season. Yet the NFL still plans on stealing another Patriots draft pick. This time the NFL plans on taking the Patriots 2017 4th round draft pick.

    The NFL could still release that PSI information prior to the 2017 NFL Draft and then reinstate the Patriots 4th round draft pick. The NFL could then award the Patriots 2 additional draft picks to compensate them for deflatefarce.

    Fair compensation would be:
    • Reinstatement of the 2017 4th round draft pick.
    • Awarding a 1st round draft pick to make up for the stolen 2016 1st round draft pick.
    • An additional 1st or 2nd round draft pick as compensation for forcing Tom Brady to miss 25% of the 2016 season.

    Hopefully a bunch of patriot detractors won’t show up to watch the practices The sun reflecting off all those tin foil hats might make it hard for the players to see the footballs.

    Meanwhile Coughlin will say anyone that walks through the drill is not going home on the Jacksonville bus.

    Numerous former employees say the Patriots would have someone rummage through the visiting team hotel for playbooks or scouting reports.

  10. Joint practices are fun to watch. I spent a couple days at Flowery Branch watching the Pats-Falcons joint.

    Met Vince Wilfork and couldn’t believe hiw BIG he actually is!

    Really?….name just ONE & the link to that report…. Just ONE

  14. I really hope Tom Coughlin doesn’t become Phil Jackson where every store is about him, not the actual Jaguars roster. Can Coughlin turn around the Jaguars? Is it time for Coughlin to retire? Blah blah blah.

    Because everyone believes that by the weekend of the game, professional football players don’t know their own plays or who the players they are playing against so they all walk around carrying pages and they often drop the pages in the hallways or lobby of hotels.

    Everyone also believes that the plays that every team has run are secret because they are not broadcast on live television and the NFL doesn’t provide every team with game film from the other teams. Certainly professional football teams don’t employ analysts who are smart enough to diagram plays of other teams after watching plays on video where they can stop the film and rewind the film. They could never create a playbook for the other teams.

    Everyone also believes that plays are still secret because no players or coaches have moved to other teams since 1947 when free agency started.
