You can also see that Belichick sticks up for his players. No loss is ever on one guy, it's always about the team. The offense can roll and the defense suck, or vice versa, and it's all about how the TEAM didn't play well enough to win etc.
Does he ever accept responsibility? Even just in small statements like, "I need to coach better."
If not, then we know where Matt Cassel gets his bullshit from
