Bill Belichick always makes headlines for his out of this world type of quotes. The man never holds back from speaking what's on his mind and he always delivers in front of the mic.

With all of his Super Bowl rings too, he'll go down as one of the best coaches the NFL has ever seen. Veteran coach Ron Rivera knows all about this and he didn't hold back in giving Belichick major praise.

That's great to see from Rivera. While the two are big-time competitors, that doesn't mean there's not a ton of respect there. Belichick always stays true to who he is, and Rivera loves that about him.
