Some messages on the Internet derived that separation could be a distraction to Belichick, and lessen the chances that, in 2005, New England will become the first team in the history of the NFL to capture three consecutive Super Bowl Championships.
But the separation was prior to the season of 2004, during which Belichick seemed not unfazed by personal issues, and in which the Patriots won their third Super Bowl title in four years.
Belichick, 53-year-old, won an ESPY on Wednesday night, the coach/Manager of the year.
