FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- A sampling of remarks from Bill Belichick today when asked about Jets coach Rex Ryan and his team's trash-talking approach:
As much effort as Rex seems to put into all these comments, does it take effort to not respond at all?
"Our job is really to just get ready for the game. That's what we're going to do."
Is there a line that can be crossed? I'm thinking about the Antonio Cromartie comments...
"That's all out of our control. Our job is to get ready to play. That's what we're going to do."
Not necessarily talking about the Jets in particular, do you think there is a line a player can cross when talking about a player on an opposing team?
"I don't know. I'm sure there is."
What is the line?
"I don't know."
But in your mind, how would you...
"In my mind, right now, it's the New York Jets Sunday at 4:30. That's what's in my mind right now."
What does it say about your team that you don't engage in trash talk like that?
"I don't know. We're trying to prepare for the game. That's our objective, to play our best game Sunday afternoon. So that's what we're pointing toward and that's what we're going to try to work toward."
