Belichick: Indy friendlier after failed '09 call against Colts

(Continued)

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. —

A New England victory also would give Belichick four championships, tying him with one of his idols — Pittsburgh’s Chuck Noll — for the most ever by a head coach.

Both men, however, moved quickly to dispel talk of personal records.

“We’ll try to make sure we focus on what we’re really here for, and that’s our performance on Sunday night,” Belichick said.

The underdog Giants spoiled the Patriots bid for a perfect season in Super Bowl XLII, but Belichick said too many faces have changed on both sides for this game to hold any element of revenge.

“I’ve been asked about that game for several days now,” Belichick said. “But really all the games in the past don’t mean too much at this point.”
