Patriots safety Devin McCourty was honored on Tuesday night for his work helping Boston-area youth move from gangs to more productive activities, and coach Bill Belichick was one of those praising McCourty’s work.

Belichick delivered a taped address about McCourty at the event recognizing McCourty’s work with Boston Uncornered.

Conversations across our country and within our team will help lead to paving the way for a better future. Following your lead, and the example of other incredible men on our team, I look forward to increasing my role in this process,” Belichick said, via Mike Reiss of ESPN. “Healthy discussion leads to actions. And actions that you have brought to the forefront have resulted in progress.”

Belichick also called McCourty an “ultimate role model,” and said he is a “great example of the impact that someone can have with great wisdom, leadership, courage and passion.”

McCourty is heading into his 11th season playing for Belichick and the Patriots.

  1. It’s one thing to praise people working for you and another to have someone speak to the team about injustices, but what we want to know Bill is how YOU feel about current events

    If you read what Bill said, I think you will see how he feels.

  4. Kudos to McCourty for identifying the real issues and working to fix them instead of blindly believing the current false narrative that’s being pushed.

  5. This coach has always put his players first and had their best interest first when dealing with the public.

    No matter what you say it can and will be distorted, bent to a certain flavor, argued against or just plain condemned.

    I grew up with the saying “Dammed if you do or Dammed if you don’t”. So sometimes it is better to just let your actions speak for you.

    In today’s climate of unrest, actions speak volumes. Both good and bad. Those that protest peacefully do good for us all… while those who protest, and commit crimes hurt us all.

    Let your walk do your talk…… We need change and we need it to come in a peaceful manner. Lets all work to see this through both in our own lives and the world of sports.

    We can make changes that last and work… Just be careful to stop and listen to both sides and not force a belief down peoples throats as the only alternative or plan available. Work together to reform, and share ideas and most important listen to each other and Pray we can mend our country.

  6. And I forgot to mention I love Devin and so glad he resigned with my team!!!!

    ==============
    Bill owes YOU nothing. Nothing at all.

  8. I’m glad that the players in the NFL have spoken up about the inequality and racial abuse issues we’ve had in our nation for many years. There is no doubt the players are stepping forward, all around the league, in a big way and I assume will be a catalyst, to assure this extremely important issue, will never be put on the back burner again. Thank you Devin McCourty, for the effort you have taken with your work with the youth, in the Boston area! You are a great example to other players, the fans, as well as those, you are endeavoring to help.

    I could really care less how he or anyone else feels…… The only question that matters to me is how I feel.

  10. Why isn’t anyone saying Kap to the Pats yet??? I’m so ready to witness that craziness happen; sadly they’d still win the division.

  11. BB and Kraft again (like they always do) performing their CYA act. It’s why even though they clearly need a QB you won’t ever see or hear about Kaepernick being anywhere near either one of these guys. In their eyes that’s only for someone else to do.

    If BB wasn’t so big talk and no action about the topic he’d bring CK in this season.

    BB wants to win football games….not pander to the Twitter mob

  13. I don’t understand the outcry for the Patriots to sign Kaepernick. I just checked their roster and they have 4 QB’s signed! Another “arm” in that camp takes away from the development of Stidham,Hoyer,Lewerke (R), and J’mar Smith (R) i m o.

    Stidman, Hoyer, Lewerke, and Smith. C mon man those aren’t QB’s.

    So why not have your Dolphins sign him!

  15. Let’s check back in a two or three years see if the NFL has changed from the No Football League back to playing ball.
