Patriots head coach Bill Belichick apparently wasn't too impressed with the officiating done by the replacement officials on Thursday night.

After the game he met with the media, who obviously saw him numerous times during the game having discussions about what likely had to do with some of the questionable calls that occurred during the team's 7-6 win over New Orleans in their preseason opener.

While standing at the podium for his post game press conference, Belichick was asked by the media if he was "comfortable" with the way the game was called.

His answer was preceded by a smile and a small laugh, before he decided instead not to say anything.

"I think Mike Pereira's  [former Vice President of Officiating for the NFL]  made his comments on the officials," said Belichick.  "I don't know who knows more about NFL officiating than Mike Pereira, so I'll leave it to him.

"I'm just trying to coach our team and get our team better, not worry about what everyone else is doing.  That's not my job."
