Belichick Says He’s Proud of His Team For the Way They Fought in Super Bowl XLVI

Bill Belichick, in a suit for one last time in the 2011-12 season, met briefly with reporters this afternoon after the Patriots returned to Gillette Stadium from Indianapolis.

Over the last several weeks, Belichick frequently praised this team and the effort that he got from these players throughout the season. Despite yesterday’s loss in Super Bowl XLVI, he did not waver on that today:

“Real proud of them. I thought they worked hard all year, they competed well all season. We won a lot of games and even the ones we didn’t win, we fought right to the end and played very competitively. We did that last night, just came up a little bit short,” Belichick said according to Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe.

“I have all the respect in the world for the team and all the players and what they’ve done for over six months. It’s not about one game or one play or anything, it’s the whole body of work. I really, really enjoyed coaching this team and have a lot of respect for them.”
