Invoice Belichick was mic’d up and in prime type in the course of the Patriots’ recreation versus the Dolphins on Sunday.
With lots to rejoice in his group’s 35-17 win, the stoic head coach hardly batted an eye fixed. The truth is, he didn’t utter a phrase throughout any of the Patriots’ 5 touchdowns.
However two issues visibly warmed Belichick’s coronary heart: a number of robust performs on particular groups (in fact) and an excited Johnson Bademosi.
Simply previous to the Patriots’ sixth sack of the day, the ever-eager Belichick stated, with all the keenness of a fuel-station attendant giving instructions, “He may need a shot. Go. Yep. There it’s.”
At that time, Bademosi approached the sideline, shouted in pleasure and almost ran into Belichick. Realizing he had invaded the coach’s area, Bademosi shortly retreated and apologized.
However Belichick wasn’t mad. The truth is, he seemed again at Bademosi and — watch for it — chuckled.
Perhaps he’s human, in any case.
The Patriots acquired Bademosi from the Lions in September in change for a 2019 sixth-spherical draft decide. He’s one in every of a handful of former Lions on the Patriots’ roster, together with Kyle Van Noy and LaAdrian Waddle.
