Bill Belichick is ecstatic the league is happy with Brandon Meriweather

B. Meriweather.jpgLast week, Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather was held up by the NFL as the poster boy for “inexcusable” helmet-to-helmet hits.

This week, Meriweather has getting some kudos from NFL Executive V.P. of Football Operations Ray Anderson. 

“Brandon Meriweather, specifically, last week we were appropriately
calling him out and chastising him,” Anderson added. “Yesterday in the
Patriots’ game at San Diego, Meriweather made two very tenacious,
effective and legal hits in similar situations. But you could see it, he
lowered the target area, blasted the opponent with his shoulder. He
adapted, showing it can be done. It is appropriate to praise him for the
tough play.”

Patriots coach Bill Belichick was told about Anderson’s praise and you can tell it made a big impact on him.

“I think that would be a first for me,” Belichick said via the Boston Herald. “The
officials are now evaluating the players and their performance. No, I
mean that’s great. [long pause] . . . I can’t tell you how much that means to me, really.”

  1. Even as a Jets fan, Bill Bellicheck’s utter disdain for the media is both awesome and hilarious.

  2. That’s freakin hilarious!!!
    He must be looking forward to his next visit to the League office.

  3. Of course the piece of sh#t tried to paralyze Todd Heap for life the week before. Todd is still suffering from nerve damage in his shoulder/neck area from that hit.
    Plus the turd tried the same thing on Heap’s touchdown catch in the endzone but just missed. Meriweather is known league wide as a dirty player. Somebody should take him out with a cheap shot and the entire NFL fan base would be thrilled.

  4. Belichik is one of the funniest head coaches in the league… in addition to being the best. I wonder if he’ll ever coach another team. The krafts are smart, they should never let him go

  5. Belichick remains the Supreme Head Coach in the NFL.
    BB doesn’t say alot to the media but definitely takes his selected shots.
    Merriwether has adjusted his game and may finally be able to get his playmaking skills in sync with his game.

  6. HILARIOUS!!
    Little Bill’s pressers have been must see TV since he alienated the entire Cleveland press corps in the 90s.
    My favorite Belichick quote? “I resign as HC of the NYJ…Signed Bill Belichick”
    ON A EFFING NAPKIN!!!

  7. Attack raven ……..
    Yeah and the ravens aren’t the dirtiest team in the whole NFL , moron , think before you say something . I’m sure ray lewis didn’t purposely helmet to helmet julian edelman giving him a concussion , just like he didn’t purposely kill anyone :/

  8. Somebody should take him out with a cheap shot and the entire NFL fan base would be thrilled.
    Fair enough.
    Now you understand how some of us feel about Ray Lewis.

    Those are some bold words. In order to not be nothing more than a whiney Ravens fan, I expect you can back it up with countless examples of dirty play.
    I will not argue that it wasnt blatantly dirty, it absolutely was, but one “dirty” hit does not make a player a known dirty player league wide……now if you can prove me wrong, please do

    “Belichik is one of the funniest head coaches in the league… in addition to being the best. I wonder if he’ll ever coach another team. The krafts are smart, they should never let him go”
    Bill Belichick is about as interesting as watching a slug leave a snot trail while moving across a flat rock.

  11. Haha he’s such an ass but I totally agree with him. This was pretty funny. Beneath that crusty shell, Bill is a pretty normal guy, though

    Get over it you tool…you guys lost to the Pats and damn near lost to the Bills

  13. Between the blowhards Sparano and Ryan, Bellycheat is climbing my ladder of coaches I don’t hate that much. No, really…

  14. Hey Boochamps, Belichick never cheated. That’s a fact. It was our moralistic crusading ignorant fool of a commish who was the jerk in that whole situation.
    As for Meriweather, DeMarcus Ware drilled Eli “Give the ball to the other team” Manning in the helmet with no penalty – Meriweather obeyed the law of the jungle of the NFL (as Kerry Byrne so accurately put it) and Todd Heap is tough enough to handle it, yet his hit is STILL considered an affront? Bull – all he did was force the Ravens to play scared – and that is what good defense does.
    I’m all for safety but safety overkill is wrong any way you slice it. Meriweather is what the Patriots need – a safety who will blast the opposing team and make them scared.

  15. I have heard interviews with guys who know him on a personal level, like Tony Larussa and Bobby Knight, that say he is totally hilarious.
    The guy just knows how to shut it off when he’s working. You can tell that he enjoys jerking with the media and league office as much as possible.

  16. He’s got a very dry, sarcastic, NY-style sense of humor. He usually detests the media but make no mistake, he knows the importance of making sure he doesn’t completely shut them out. He tried that in Cleveland and the media showed him no mercy.
    Every now and again you’ll get him to open up his wealth of knowledge about the game and it’s fascinating to listen to or read about. His memory about certain players, coaches, schemes, etc is vast.
    One of the funnier questions he dealt with a couple years ago before a showdown with Mangini’s Jets. He wouldn’t even address Mangini by name. One writer in the Boston media asked him who his favorite water boy was in Cleveland…hoping to get him to mention ANYTHING about Eric Mangini… He got a kick out of the question and went back and forth a bit…it was pretty hilarious.
    No one tops Parcells’ dealings with the media…he was the best…hands down.

  17. It’s called sarcasm! Bill always uses it. Last week one reporter asked him assuming a player couldn’t play would (Jerod Page) would he think that Sergio Brown (PS) SS would play? Bill said, “I don’t want to assume anything!” Then the rest of the reporters bust out laughing while Bill had a wry smile on his face! That’s humor for Belichick, not that funny. Hey, he’s a Head Coach not a stand up Comedian!
