Aqib Talib lays out Bill Belichick’s rules for success with Patriots

Aqib Talib breaks down how to have a fun time with Patriots initially appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Costs Belichick, a stringent head coach?

According to previous New England Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib, that wasn’t always the case throughout his time in Foxboro.

Appearing on the Peyton and Eli Manning simulcast of Monday Night Football, Talib discussed the guidelines you should follow in order to have a fun time with New England.

“To be honest, [Peyton Manning], it’s not that strict. He [Bill Belichick] just cares about a couple of things,” Talib discussed. “Don’t be late — if you’re late, he’s sending you home for the whole day. Know your stuff, and don’t play around with the media. You stick to those three things, you’ll have a great time in New England. Just like I did.”

Patriots toss at traditionally low rate in very first half vs. Expenses

Talib signed up with the Patriots in a midseason trade from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012, investing the next year and a half in New England prior to signing with Peyton’s Denver Broncos in 2014.

The Patriots won the Super Bowl in their very first season without Talib — signing Darrelle Revis in his location didn’t injured — however Talib would get his ring the following season, when, as Eli mentioned on the broadcast, he brought Peyton to a Super Bowl win over Webcam Newton and the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50.

Talib played in another Super Bowl 3 years later on with the Los Angeles Rams, when New England won its last champion with Tom Brady.

The Patriots attempted to bring Talib back in 2020 — as Talib put it on the broadcast, to be the group’s “tight end stopper” however after taking a look at New England’s schedule and seeing tight ends such as Travis Kelce and Darren Waller, chose to retire rather.
