For those who think that the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady partnership is going away after the New England Patriots latest postseason disappointment, Belichick says he plans to patrol the sidelines in his customary hoodie and cutoff sleeves next season.

"I’ll be here,” Belichick said, via WEEI.com. “You’ll have to deal with me again next year. I know that’s disappointing for a lot of you. Until I’m told otherwise, I plan on being here.”

“That’s the NFL. The last game, you play a game this time of year, you’re either [in] euphoria or it’s a crash landing. And for us yesterday, it was a crash landing. A year ago at this time, it was the other feeling," he said.
