Bill Belichick says he ‘didn’t do a good enough job coaching’ in Super Bowl LII loss
Bill Belichick didn’t have much to say following New England’s Super Bowl loss to the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday.
The Patriots head coach reiterated that he was “proud of the way” the team competed, while also noting their level of play wasn’t enough to earn the victory. Belichick cited every phase of the game — as well as his own position — when listing what wasn’t working for the defending champions.
“Obviously didn’t do a good enough job coaching,” he said. “Missed a lot of opportunities offensively in the first half. Didn’t play good enough defense. Didn’t play good enough in the kicking game. Just wasn’t quite enough against a good team like Philadelphia.”
The 65-year-old continued to send a similar message throughout his postgame press conference.
“It wasn’t unfortunately our best, which it needed to be in this game against a great team like the Eagles,” he said of his team’s performance. “But proud of the way our players, coaches, and everybody competed for 60 minutes. Just wasn’t quite enough, we weren’t able to perform at our best.”
