Bill Belichick Press Conference: Patriots Coach Tired Of Talking About 2008

Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots just touched down in Indianapolis Sunday for the 2012 Super Bowl against the New York Giants. The Patriots coach, though, is already tired of being asked if revenge for the 2008 Super Bowl loss to the Giants is part of this week's motivation.

"I've been asked about that game for several days now. All of the games in the past really don't mean that much at this point. This game is about this team this year. There aren't really a lot of us coaches and players who were involved in that game, and very few players, in relative terms, between both teams," Belichick said. "I don't think anything in the past has too much of a factor in this game."

Belichick has the Patriots in their fifth Super Bowl in 11 years, and a New England victory would tie Belichick with legendary Pittsburgh coach Chuck Noll for most Super Bowl victories by a coach with four.
