Bill Belichick is just like the everyone else when it comes to taunting an opposing player. The grumpy head coach of the New England Patriots carries an ice-cold exterior, and doesn't take no crap from nobody. And setting him off by taunting him mid-game probably isn't the best idea. But hey, we'll give Derrick Mason props for attempting it.
NFL Network is running a behind-the-scenes show with Bill Belichick and the sound bites are simply fantastic. And the verbal sparring match between Mason and Belichick takes the cake. After Mason catches a pass for a first down, he exchanges words with the New England head coach, who responds in kind with a colorful barrage of words, including plenty of f-bombs.

The best part isn't the f-bombs, which are a staple of trash-talk and life in a professional sports league. No, it's the scoreboard taunt, a favorite rebuttal of a team in the lead. Belichick ends the argument by saying, "Can you look at the scoreboard?"
