"Randall's entitled to his opinion"
Bill Belichick was asked this morning about some of the Redskins' complaints that New England was piling it on yesterday. At first, Belichick said he didn't know what the questioner was referring to, but when Randall Godfrey's name was brought up, Belichick had an answer.
"Randall's entitled to his opinion. If you ask him, I'm sure he'll give it to you."
As reported by nbcsports.com after the game, Washington linebacker Godfrey confronted Belichick on the field after the final gun, and told him he was disrespecting the game by running up the score. And as blog reader Mike points out, Godfrey had a grand total of one tackle in the game...

Belichick: "It's the next game."
Hey all --
Despite the hard-to-swallow 38-34 loss New England suffered to Indianapolis in the AFC title game in January, and despite the fact that both teams are undefeated coming into Sunday's game at the RCA Dome, Bill Belichick -- outwardly, at least -- isn't treating this game any differently than the eight before it his team has played this season.
"It's the next game."
As much as we'd like to postpone the barrage of showdown talk for at least a day, it wasn't exactly possible given today's press conference with Belichick.
But there was some talk of Sunday's win over Washington, with Belichick praising everyone from his assistants to all 45 players that took the field against the Redskins and the scout team, saying they all played a big part in the victory.
Heck, Belichick couldn't even cite too much when asked what improvements he'd like his team to make coming off the Skins game, mentioning the four false starts the offense was flagged for and a slightly bogged down return game.
And the coach congratulated Terry Francona and the Red Sox for their "impressive" World Series win, calling their eight straight Series wins "awesome."
Eight straight wins? Belichick knows something about that....

Practice squad transaction
As expected, defensive lineman Santonio Thomas has been re-signed to the Patriots' practice squad. He was cut from the 53-man roster on Friday to make room for Richard Seymour.
As New England's practice squad was at its eight-man limit, center Pat Ross was cut so Thomas could be re-added.
