Bill Belichick On NFL���s Taunting Rules, Mac Jones���s Decision Making, And If Tom Brady Can Play Until He���s 50

Bill Belichick led the Patriots to a 25-6 win over the Jets Sunday, but the first question he fielded in his weekly interview on WEEI’s “The Greg Hill Show” Monday had nothing to do with the game itself.

Instead, Belichick was asked about Julian Edelman’s impression of his former coach, which the now-retired wide receiver once again showed off during a recent episode of “Inside the NFL” on Showtime.

“Yeah, no I missed it,” Belichick deadpanned.

Asked if there was someone he thought did a good impression of himself, the Patriots coach said he didn’t know.

“I could certainly do one of him too,” Belichick said of Edelman, though he declined to do it on air.

Belichick says he can impersonate Edelman just as well!

Belichick on Mac Jones’s decision-making

When the conversation shifted to the win over New York — the first NFL victory of Mac Jones’s career — Belichick was again asked what he thought of his young quarterback’s decision-making. Specifically, Jones’s commitment to blocking (and, on Damien Harris’s touchdown run, helping to push the pile into the end zone).
