The Patriots (13-3) will host the Tennessee Titans on Saturday night in the AFC divisional playoffs.
ESPN insinuated turmoil between Belichick, Tom Brady and Robert Kraft that could break up the trio, and the New York Daily News issued a vague report that Belichick had interest in coaching the Giants.
He added: "Right now my interest is trying to do the best I can for our football team to get ready for Saturday night against Tennessee". Guerrero and Brady have formulated "The TB12 Method", a fitness and diet guide that Brady believes has been instrumental in helping him play at a high level into his 40s.
"I think if he had to have another dream job outside of the one he has, I think in the depths of his heart the Giants are still there", Banks said.More news: Jerry Van Dyke dies aged 86
Nothing is "absolute." So until the Giants job is formally filled by someone else - and possibly for a while after that - there likely still will be wisps of smoke coming from the Belichick possibility. According to the report, Belichick was furious and demoralized when Kraft sided with Brady on the decision to trade backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to San Francisco.
Kraft told the MMQB last weekend that he also expects Belichick to be with New England next season.
Asked about the reported mandate from Kraft to trade Garoppolo, Belichick said Monday: "I haven't read the article".
"First of all, I don't know what you're talking about", Belichick said". "I'm not really interested in responding to all those random and in a lot of cases baseless comments". "I'm a coach, he's the commissioner, we know what that kind of relationship is".
