New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick has never hid his respect for the Ravens and some of the organization's top decision markers. So, it was hardly surprising that in his final news conference before Sunday's game, he spent a good part of it showering the Ravens with praise. He saved some of his kindest words for Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome . The two worked together in Cleveland and have maintained a friendship. Belichick called him a “pretty special person, special football person, too. “He's been very complimentary about his comments of what he learned from me, but I think I probably learned more from him than he learned from me,” Belichick said.

So New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick was asked about quarterback Tom Brady's ankle and - shock of shocks! - he wouldn't talk about it. Actually, Belichick seemed to enjoy not talking about it - if it can be said that Belichick enjoys dealing with the media under any circumstances - and kind of taunted reporters by saying they'd just have to wait until the official injury report comes out next week.

You hear the name Belichick, you think football. But the truth is that lacrosse is just as big in the household of New England Patriots coach and Annapolis High grad Bill Belichick . On Thursday came the news that Bill's daughter Amanda Belichick has been appointed interim head coach at Wesleyan, her alma mater, for the 2014 season. Following in her father's footsteps, Belichick has coached since her four-year lacrosse career at the Middletown, Conn., school ended in 2007.

According to the NFL record books, Bill Belichick had a 37-45 record in his five years as coach of the Cleveland Browns.It turns out, though, that Belichick was keeping his own score.He thinks he was 32-34. Well, it does sound better.He's not counting the 5-11 record he had in his last season in Cleveland.When Belichick was named coach of the New York Jets, at least until Bill Parcells escapes New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft, it also lifted the gag order Parcells had in place.Parcells didn't let his assistant coaches speak to the media except at the Super Bowl, when the league mandates that they be made available to the media.

Bill Parcells appears to be more than a football coach in New York. He's treated more like a cult leader. There was a full-page ad in the New York papers Thursday reading: "Dear Bill, You owe it to the memory of Leon Hess and the New York Jets players. Please Come Back." It was signed, "From your friends at Cigar Aficionado and Wine Spectator." Parcells has a lot of friends in New York. It's easy to forget he won only two Super Bowls. So did Tom Flores and George Seifert. In New York, they don't even blush when they write things like, "He's the kind of star Vince Lombardi was with the Green Packers."

C HERNDON, Va. -- When it comes to being focused on the next opponent, it's hard to top Joe Gibbs.The Washington Redskins coach, who sleeps in his office three nights a week and hasn't been able to identify such public figures as Oliver North and Madonna in the past, is the prototype of the coach whose life is the game.Bill Belichick, rookie coach of the Cleveland Browns, doesn't sleep in his office, but he may be even more intense than Gibbs about the preparing for the next game -- in this case, Sunday against the Redskins at RFK Stadium.

Stroke of genius or act of defiance? New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick straddled that fence last week when he made Drew Bledsoe the highest-paid backup quarterback in the NFL behind Tom Brady, a promising but unproven second-year player. Belichick surveyed Brady's eight NFL starts and Bledsoe's previous eight seasons and determined the Patriots' best chance to reach the playoffs this year was with the former sixth-round draft choice. Never mind that Belichick had assured Bledsoe of the opportunity to compete with Brady for the job once he had recovered from a severe chest injury in Week 2. In the win-now world of the NFL, Belichick took the hot hand and ran smack into a controversy that most likely will render him either a genius or man under fire in the coming weeks.

CBS Sports will cover the Super Bowl with 62 cameras, CBS Sports chairman Sean McManus said in a teleconference Thursday promoting the Feb. 3 game between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers. "That includes all of the unmanned cameras," he said. "It includes any aerial cameras we might have. But listen, there are a lot of cameras ... " By comparison, the norm for Baltimore Ravens games, which were usually covered by second- or third-string CBS crews this year, has been 9 to 12 cameras.

It's been a long wait for Terrell Suggs to exact his revenge on the New England Patriots, and when the Ravens' 28-13 win was complete Sunday, he let loose. "Tell them to have fun at the Pro Bowl," Suggs said after the game to Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports! about the Patriots. "Shut them out in the second half. Arrogant [expletive]. These are the most arrogant [expletive] in the world starting with [coach Bill] Belichick on down. " The Patriots beat the Ravens last year in the AFC championship game, 23-20, but lost the Super Bowl to the New York Giants.

It almost seems wrong to complain about the telecast of a game that ended as happily as Sunday's AFC championship victory by the Baltimore Ravens 28-13 over the New England Patriots. Almost. But CBS Sports once again failed to deliver the goods on a Ravens game. And just because I'm euphoric over the Ravens' victory doesn't mean I should soft pedal how much I hated the telecast. Last week, CBS Sports brass boasted about the Super-Bowl cameras and technology they were going to have on hand for the game.

The story has been told many times over the past three decades, as Bill Belichick went from being an up-and-coming defensive coordinator in the NFL to an unsuccessful first-time head coach with the Cleveland Browns to eventually becoming one of the most accomplished coaches in league history. No matter where and how Belichick's story unfolds, it always begins in Annapolis. It also begins with his father, Steve, a college football coach who moved the family there from North Carolina to work at the Naval Academy in 1956.

In the postgame interview room adjacent to his team's locker room, Bill Belichick wore a pained expression and was barely audible after the New England Patriots' last-second 31-30 loss to the Ravens on Sunday night. You could say he spoke in a monotone. Except a monotone sounds like the roar of Niagara Falls compared to how softly the Patriots' coach mumbled. “Good football game, tough loss, both teams competed hard,” Belichick said in his opening remarks. “In the end, we came up a little bit short.

Dick Jauron was as good as gone. No way was he going to finish the four-year contract he signed with the Chicago Bears in 1999. Not with a new general manager who preferred to hire his own people. Not with a two-year record of 11-21 as head coach. Not with a team that had no established No. 1 quarterback. Bill Belichick reached his crossroads two games into the 2001 season. The New England Patriots had lost their best receiver in the preseason and their franchise quarterback in Week 2. There Belichick was in Week 3, staring at a long season with a vulnerable defense, a roster filled with marginal free-agent signings and a second-year quarterback who had thrown three passes in 2000.

Art Modell can be blamed for many things. Bill Belichick's resignation as coach of the New York Jets is not one of them. There is no "inner turmoil" raging inside Belichick, contrary to what Jets president Steve Gutman said Tuesday after losing his second coach in two days. Belichick knows exactly what he is doing. He wants to get out from under Bill Parcells. And he wants the world to believe he couldn't possibly take a job under the Jets' uncertain ownership after being so scarred by Modell's decision to move to Baltimore in 1995.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick has never hidden his respect for Ravens safety Ed Reed and that didn't change during Wednesday's news conference at Gillette Stadium. Belichick showered Reed with praise as the Patriots prepare to face the Ravens in Sunday's AFC championship game. "Can't say I've ever coached against anybody better than Ed Reed in the secondary," Belichick said. The Patriots have played the Ravens six times during the regular season and once in the postseason.
