Patriots Belichick Respects Ravens

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is considered one of, if not the top coach in the NFL right now. He has led his team to the post season virtually every year, or at least has them in contention ever since he and QB Tom Brady hooked up almost by accident over a decade ago.

Belichick was questioned recently about the Patriots blowout win over the Denver Broncos in the Divisional Round of the 2012 NFL playoffs and the tough match-up his team will be facing this Sunday afternoon when the Baltimore Ravens come to town. The story was posted on Sports Radio Interviews and gives a solid insight into how much he respects Baltimore and specifically one of the Ravens defensive players.

As an example, here is what he said about the Ravens defense:

"They’re pretty good. Statistically, they’re right at the top of the league in just about everything and they’ve been there for a long time. Certainly, their rushing stats are as good as anybody’s in the league. They do what they need to win, and that’s the bottom line."
