Steve Belichick has learned from his father how to talk to the media

Patriots safeties coach Steve Belichick has garnered some attention this season for reports that he’s the one making the defensive play calls for the best defense in the league. But while Steve is beginning to emerge from the shadow of his father, Bill Belichick, there’s no question that Steve is very much his father’s son.

Steve Belichick made an appearance in front of the media last month, and although few paid it much attention at the time, it’s gone viral today because of the eerie way that Steve sounds exactly like Bill.

Their voices are similar, and so are their approaches to answering reporters’ questions, in which they try not to divulge much of anything. Steve Belichick gives terse answers that don’t lend themselves to being quoted.

For Steve Belichick, sounding just like his extremely successful father can only be a good thing in furthering his own coaching career. Bill Belichick is perhaps the greatest coach in NFL history, and some NFL owner may decide to see if his son is the next-best thing.

  1. Ya just what this country needs is another condescending arrogant smart as-. We need more articulate adults that treat people as we like to be treated ….with respect. Pretty simple really.

  2. I bet Netflix is mad that they don’t have exclusive rights to the Jesse Pinkman sequel.

    Yeah science!

  3. “Steve has read the tb12 method and is going to be a better head coach than Freddie “cheeseburger” kitchens”

    A couple of my cats might well be a better head coach than Freddie Kittens

    Lol

  4. Would rather have this mullet rocking kid following up his dad as the HC of the Pats than McDaniel’s.

  5. Steve Belichick gives terse answers that don’t lend themselves to being quoted.

    Was that video supposed to be an example of him being terse? He was a little guarded in his responses, but having read the “terse” thing, I was expecting him to come off as some condescending ass that’s gruff or abrupt. Seemed reasonable dealing with their goofy-ass questions about him watching game film instead of cartoons as a kid.

    Respect is earned. You sir, are far from being respected.

    Terse {adjective} sparing in the use of words; abrupt.

  8. BB considered the GOAT coach. Fine.

    But when I think of big games of the past 20 yrs, it is Brady’s precision play in the postseason, particularly games that seemed lost that we will all remember.

    Last yr against the Chiefs in the AFC game is a good example. The game was won, then almost lost, then won. Brady, with dependable experienced teammates pulled that out.

    Belichick & son arrogance is out of line.

    Wish Brady would stay in NE. BB of all people should see to it.

    Sorry, but BB is not GOAT coach without Brady. Give Brady a decent offense and he can beat anyone more often than not.

    With a tip of the cap to Malcolm Butler, which BB had a big role in sure, but Tom Brady is the one we can thank for everything the Patriots accomplished in the past 20 years.

    Steve Belichick + arrogance without Tom. Yeah, good luck with that.

  9. “The best defense in the league” because they ran up their stats playing soft punching bag teams until week 9.

    Says the guy posting all the time calling Pats fans names and hardly being articulate. You do like to use the word “obfuscation” to try to sound smart and articulate. You do not post on here with respect whatsoever. You cry about everything so you shall be treated like a crybaby. Also BB practices brevity. No need to beat around the bush.

  11. Respect is earned. You sir, are far from being respected.

    Aw someone’s feelings hurt because something bad was said about one of their ideals? Grow a pair Francis being a jerk when it’s not called for is not something to be respected……by adults…..see I gave you an out.

  12. Dear Belichick’s,
    I’m not saying you have to give the media everything they want BUT come on, give the fans something. It’s a sport; it’s a diversion for all of us; a way to relax and enjoy a Sunday afternoon away from work. I get that it’s big business but it’s a game you’re participating in …. you’re not solving a major world crisis here. Lighten up.

  13. I assume he’s as big a sore loser as his father. Running straight for the locker room after each beatdown.

  14. That the ‘Murica general population will believe any garbage that gets fed to them irregardless of science and actual fact?

    And then continue to adhere to their blind stupidity even in the face of proof and reason?

    What has he learned about filming walk throughs and deflating footballs?

    You are saying BB does not go shake hands with the other coaches after defeat? Really? It must be a sad time for you that you need to elevate your own situation by trying to bring someone down.

    The Pats fans are not asking for more from either of them. Bill gives us exactly what we want and need, which is wins. For fans of the other 31, who cares whether they get what they want. I think we would be quite blessed if Steve could take over when Bill is ready, and we can have another 30 years of perfect press conferences.
