NEW YORK (WFAN)  None other than legendary Patriots head coach Bill Belichick was a guest of WFAN co-hosts Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts on Thursday afternoon.

The future Hall of Famer, as is his custom, was very conservative in his responses as he prepares his team to take on the Ravens in the NFL divisional playoffs on Saturday.

When asked if he’s happy that former Jets head coach Rex Ryan is no longer in the AFC East, the three-time Super Bowl champion said exactly what you’d expect him to say.

“I don’t really worry about anything I can’t control,” Belichick told Joe & Evan. “I’m just trying to coach our team, get ready for the Ravens. I can’t worry about the other 31 teams in the league.”

The head coach discussed the upcoming matchup against Baltimore, his thoughts on replay and getting calls right, and he even said some fun with Benigno.

“I’ve always been curious about this,” Roberts said. “After you guys play the Jets, and you beat them usually, is there ever a part of your day where you think about what Joe is going through? What he’s thinking about? Maybe for like five seconds. Does that ever go through your mind?”

“Yeah, it does,” Belichick responded immediately in a sarcastic tone. “It sure does. Yeah.”

The coach then mentioned the late missed field goals by Nick Folk in the Patriots’ two victories over the Jets this past season.
