Belichick: There's no better team than the Saints
Posted by Michael David Smith on November 23, 2009 2:02 PM ET


The New England Patriots have already played one of the NFL's unbeaten teams, losing last week's nail-biter to the Indianapolis Colts. Now, as they prepare to play the league's other unbeaten team, the New Orleans Saints, Patriots coach Bill Belichick says he's expecting his team's toughest game of the season.

"I don't think there's any better team in football than the New Orleans Saints," Belichick said, per Adam Kilgore of the Boston Globe.

Belichick doesn't want to give the Colts any bulletin-board material if they play again in the playoffs, but he said he thinks the Saints may be a more complete team.

"New Orleans I'd say is a little more balanced," Belichick said. "They're both pretty good. But New Orleans is real good on defense and they're real good in the kicking game. They have no weaknesses that I can see. They're averaging, whatever it is, 40 points a game. They look pretty good to me."

The Saints actually average 36.9 points a game, and it would be hard to argue that their defense and special teams are significantly better than the Colts', but whatever: Belichick thinks there's no better team than the Saints, and he might be right.

Then again, if New England meets Indianapolis again in the playoffs, you can bet Belichick will be saying there's no better team than the Colts.

Obviously he is just giving lip service to the press. Hopefully after Monday's game he will be speechless.

He must have leftover film material from Spygate ..... Plus he must be trying to be more of a statesman and provide less locker room material.

Re: Belichick: There's no better team than the Saints

Right now we are the best team in football. It is what it is. He's heading into his second game in a row to an undefeated team and about to lose two in a row.

That are he is softening us up so we take it easy on them so they can bite us in the ass. All this talk means nothing. This game will be one of the biggest games in Saints history... somewhere in the top 10 for sure.

I have nothing but respect for the Pats. They have 3 superbowls, spygate or not. I like Bill. He's a bit of an a-hole, and so am i, so we have alot in common.
