Bill Belichick Topics
It's hard enough gaining 10 yards on three downs. If you start trying to gain 12 or 13 or 17 on two, then eventually it's probably going to catch up with you.
That's part of the game...Sometimes that stuff happens.
We have 45 men suited up. They're all supposed to be ready to play.
We prepare for everyone like they are going to be 100 percent.
I'm not really worried about the other 31 teams.
Any time you have a negative play in the running game, it's like getting a penalty.
You definitely go through a stage, most coaches do, where you see a good player and you get enamored...You really like what the player does, but then when you put him into your system, it's not quite the same player that he was in another system. He has some strengths, but you can't utilize all those strengths. If you try to utilize all his strengths, you end up weakening a lot of other players who are already in your system.
It's possible. It would be hard for me to say what's inside of each player's mind, what he thinks of himself or his role or the team, but, yes, I think that's possible.
Any time you lose yardage in the running game, there's a mistake somewhere.
These players, a lot of other people didn't believe in them, but they believe in themselves. And that is all that matters.
I have all the respect in the world for Rodney Harrison. In terms of his commitment to the game, his work ethic and his attitude, he's an exemplary player, but I think we have a lot of players on our defense I'd say similar things about. He works hard, he's aggressive, he's tough and he puts as much of his heart into the game as he possibly can. He's a team captain and a leader. I don't want to minimize his role, but we have other players who fit that same description.
You always try to know what you need, try to manage the game given the game situation...and I think that's one of the things that Tom does best.
Every time that happens, it's an opportunity for the next person...We prepare hard. We come to the game with 45 guys, and everyone needs to be ready to go. It's tough to lose those guys at the beginning of the game, but the players played competitively and the team played competitively. Unfortunately, it's part of the game.
One thing that could be a problem is breaking old habits. It's not that you don't understand what the new responsibilities or plays are, but just the fact that you've been doing something a long time and you're kind of used to doing it, it's a habit, and that's not what's required in the other system and that means kind of undoing something before you can even start to do something new.
This is our best opportunity to pull everything together in terms of substitution, communication, execution, playing on the road, playing in a hostile environment, all of those kinds of things.
A lot of times a player has a lot of versatility. Thats really what their strength is and what their role is.
There are 11 people out there playing defense. What makes a difference is how those 11 people play. That's what defense is about. It's about team defense. You are always trying to isolate it into one player, one situation or one thing, and it just doesn't work that way.
I think practice preparation is always an indicator of game performance, not necessarily 100 percent, because there are still a lot of variables there, but it's still an indicator,
There is an old saying about the strength of the wolf is the pack, and I think there is a lot of truth to that. On a football team, it's not the strength of the individual players, but it is the strength of the unit and how they all function together.
You can play hard. You can play aggressive. You can give 120%, but if one guy is out of position then someone's running through the line of scrimmage and he's going to gain a bunch of yards.
