Bill Belichick “Absolutely” Will Stay With Patriots

Bad news for those of you who were hoping that the Patriots dynasty would be coming to an end this year. Bill Belichick told reporters on Monday morning that he “absolutely” plans to continue as the Patriots’ head coach into the 2018 regular season. Bill Belichick (Vertical)

Last week, an explosive piece from ESPN.com detailed a major rift within the Patriots organization. Belichick reportedly was forced to trade Jimmy Garoppolo during the season at the behest of owner Robert Kraft, perhaps with some urging by Tom Brady. Meanwhile, Brady and Belichick were said to be at odds over the constant presence of Brady’s trainer and his meddling with the recovery methods of other players on the roster. The events of the past year have led some within the building to wonder if this is Belichick’s final year on the New England sideline, according to the report.

For now, Belichick is putting such talk to rest. The Patriots begin their bid for yet another championship on Saturday when they take on the Titans.

    A super bowl and a QB taken in the draft will make this all go away.

    A playoff defeat and another Brady concussion will make this roar back to life.

    What a bunch of nonsense. Just a bunch of BS non-stories. But I guess when you can’t get any information about the patriots just make it up to sell papers and get clicks!

      Must be something to the story, considering I heard this on Canadian radio first.. i like pfr.com, but I doubt they have that kind of reach. 😛

    It is amazing how much faith has been put in an article by ESPN that is pretty much just a bunch of unnamed sources.

    • Lol do you expect the journalist to just release all of his sources? Thats a quick way to get black-listed as a journalist.

    Coach can’t be angry his owner traded away a good player and still coexist? Of course he’ll stay until Bradys gone at least

    This whole story about that pats was meant to try and distract a franchise that seems unshakable. While some of the reports probably have a little validity, my belief is that a majority of it was blown out of proportion and was published by ESPN because of the Patriots’ motto to never work with them professionally.
