If you need a little football fix on the bye week, NFL.com has posted video of Patriots head coach Bill Belichick mic’d up for last Sunday’s 55-31 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The clip features several football insights, but opens with a funny conversation between Belichick and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels discussing the presence of several Red Sox players in attendance before the game.
“They’re tiny,” McDaniels says.
“Oh I know, they’re little,” replies Belichick. “Pedroia is like 150 pounds.”
“[Shane] Victorino is like 20 pounds less than [Danny] Amendola,” says McDaniels.
During the game, Belichick encourages his team during its offensive onslaught.
“Keep rolling, fellas,” he says. “We’re gonna keep scoring now. Keep scoring.”
One of the most interesting parts of the clip is when Belichick talks to his defensive line about containing Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger within the pocket and not giving him room to throw on the run.
It ends with Belichick addressing his team in the locker room after the game.
“We’ve got a lot of football left. Seven wins is great, but it ain’t going to get anything, OK? Seven wins will not get anything in this league. We need a lot more than that.”
