During the weekend, Woody Johnson, the owner of the New York Jets, announced that head coach Robert Saleh and general manager Joe Douglas will return in 2024 Bill Belichick has not received any public assurance of this nature from Patriots owner Robert Kraft New England Patriots.
With two weeks remaining in the 2023 season for New England, it remains uncertain how Robert Kraft intends to proceed with Bill Belichick. Belichick has been the team’s head coach and de facto general manager since 2000.
On Tuesday, Belichick was asked if he would appreciate an endorsement similar to the one Robert Saleh and Joe Douglas received. Not surprisingly, he did not comment on the matter. Instead, he stated that he is focused on rectifying the mistakes from Sunday night’s 26-23 road victory over the Denver Broncos and preparing for this Sunday’s road game against the Buffalo Bills.
I don’t know anything about the Jets’ situation.?
Belichick said during an appearance on WEEI’s “The Greg Hill Show.” “I don’t know anything about that. ???? Going to get ready for Buffalo here. ???? Going back over the Denver game, making some corrections on that, and talking about things we could have done better, things we need to build on, and then moving on to Buffalo. That’s what I’m doing.
Yeah, my job is to prepare the team for every game, and that’s exactly what I do. It’s what I’ll continue to do, just as I’ve always done. ????
Last week, Belichick avoided a question about whether he feels he has Kraft’s support. ????
Kraft, who stated in March that he wanted and expected the Patriots to return to the playoffs this season, has not publicly commented on Belichick’s job security or New England’s struggles. ????
The Patriots hold a 4-11 record following their Christmas Eve victory in Denver. They were eliminated from postseason contention weeks ago, extending their streak of consecutive seasons without a playoff win to five.
The 6-9 Jets are also out of the playoff race. New York, which lost starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers minutes into the season, has not qualified for the postseason or finished above .500 since Douglas arrived in 2019. Saleh is 17-32 in his three seasons as head coach.
In 1971, the Patriots relocated to a new stadium in suburban Foxborough, Massachusetts, constructed on land provided by the Bay State Raceway. The team was officially renamed the New England Patriots on March 22, 1971, to better represent its new geographical setting. The initial choice of “Bay State Patriots” was turned down by the NFL.
Thanks to the unwavering support of dedicated fans, the New England Patriots have consistently sold out since 1994. The Waitlist was established to offer an organized and equitable method for fans to secure Patriots season tickets, along with other Waitlist benefits when they become available.
