Patriots Coach Bill Belichick Talks About Tom Coughlin

Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots and Tom Coughlin of the New York Giants are two of the most accomplished coaches in the NFL, and they have ties to each other dating back to their time as assistant coaches under Bill Parcells with the Giants.

Belichick was asked about Coughlin today during his press briefing.

"He's withstood the test of time. He's tough; his teams are disciplined. They play with great competitiveness and play smart. They're a good situational football team. They force you to go out there and beat them. They do a lot of things well," Belichick said. "That's kind of the way Tom is: Tom is tough, he's very detailed, he has a lot of experience, he's an intense coach and I think that's reflected in the way his teams play."

Belichick said he and Coughlin have maintained a relationship over the years.

"We've talked about common problems. He's shared things with me and I've shared things with him," Belichick said. "That's part of a friendship, that's part of a mutual respect that we have."
