Belichick Gets Annoyed With Question About Brady’s ToughnessMatthew Emmons - USA TODAY Sports

It’s not often you see Bill Belichick get really irritated during a press conference, but following Sunday’s game he had one of those moments.

Following New England’s win over the Cowboys, which saw Tom Brady get sacked five times in the first half and knocked around quite a bit, the Patriots were forced to adjust to a defense Dallas hadn’t shown at this point in the season before New England finally kicked things into gear and put the game away.

Brady looked like a different quarterback in the second half, misfiring on just one pass and did a great job of battling back.  A reporter asked Belichick about Brady’s resiliency and the fact his toughness might be a trait that’s overlooked.

Belichick disagreed, stopping him in his tracks and pointing out that Brady’s one of the toughest players in the game.

“I don’t think it’s overlooked,” said Belichick.  “I don’t think anybody would question Tom’s toughness. Who’s ever done that?”

The reporter explained that he felt it was something that ‘could be overlooked’

“By Who?” Belichick snapped back.

He then tried to follow it up with asking what this game said about Brady’s toughness.

But Belichick immediately said, “Tom’s one of the toughest players in the league.”

Moving forward Belichick did explain that there is still some work to be done to make sure they avoid that heading into the rest of the season.

“I think it’s a combination of things,” said Belichick.  “You know, we just have to do better job overall of our offensive execution, getting rid of the ball, getting open, and blocking. So a little bit of everything.”
