So the question remains: How does he let loose?
A recent photo emerged of Belichick enjoying a beer after a recent Patriots game. Consequently, he was asked about his beer of choice and his answer was one for the ages.
Here's how Belichick responded, in vintage Belichick fashion:
Bill Belichick keeps his beer choice simple
There is nothing wrong with a cold beer and Belichick has taken the simple approach to avoid naming favorites and then having sponsorship calls come his way. His focus has always remained on football and his answer was no different.
As for his focus on football, Belichick won comfortably on Sunday as his Patriots clobbered the New York Jets by a final score of 54-13. That counts as a revenge win for the head coach, even though he hasn't been with the Jets since the 1999 season.
The win improved the Patriots to 3-4 on the season, putting them just one win behind the Buffalo Bills in the AFC East standings. It was a convincing way to bounce back after an overtime loss the week prior to the Dallas Cowboys.
Belichick won and was able to pop an ice cold beer in celebration. Hopefully he had enough beers because the outlook for the rest of the season does not look promising.
Two of the Patriots' three wins this season have come against the Jets, who happen to be one of the worst teams this season. The other win came against the lowly Houston Texans.
