Bill Belichick had NSFW message for Sean McVay...


Patriots HC Bill Belichick f***** loved Sean McVay’s game plan.

At this point, the 2020 Patriots season is about revenge, evaluation and flat-out enjoyment of the game of football for 68-year-old Bill Belichick.

Even if the playoffs seem like a long shot with this new core, Belichick certainly got closer than any pundit expected, and he has a golden opportunity to knock both the Dolphins and Bills off-kilter in the coming weeks. Though the roster as a whole is below expectations, there are several pieces he’s uncovered this year, like Kyle Dugger, Josh Uche and Jakobi Meyers, who he’d love to learn a bit more about down the stretch. Plus, there are recent draftees like N’Keal Harry and Sony Michel whose roles for the future could be partially defined.

And he’s still learning about the game, and can still be blown away by unadulterated great football. After all, the game’s his passion, and we all need to lean on our passions in 2020.

So when Sean McVay essentially knocked the Pats out of the postseason chase with a 24-3 Thursday Night Football loss last week, Belichick wasn’t despondent. In fact, he just had to congratulate a fellow member of the coaching fraternity on an amazing game plan.

Now, some of this was Belichick being impressed with the defensive spectacle he’d just witnessed.

But we’d be willing to be the emotional outburst also came, in part, because he was proud of watching McVay punch back. After all, the young coach had been entirely neutered by Belichick in the Super Bowl just under two years ago, with Jared Goff befuddled to the point where he couldn’t even put up the requisite minimum number of points for the defense to have a chance.

This time, we watched the complete opposite. Goff seemed empowered, Cam Newton was the one rendered ineffective by a swarming pass rush, and the Rams looked every bit a contender.

And, for one year only, Belichick thinks that’s f***ing great.
