Bill Belichick Conference Call Transcript - 8/25/2012
Q: Was there anything positive to take now that you’ve watched the film or was it still pretty disappointing?
BB: I thought there were a lot of positive things in the game; a lot of things we need to correct. There were a lot of things we did well. Some plays, there were multiple things we did well. We had some breakdowns, other plays had more than one breakdown, not enough things right. It was a competitive game, we just didn’t do things as well as we needed to. I thought there were several positives in that game.
Q: To this point, how has the team responded to the compressed practice schedule, the three games in 10 days stretch?
BB: I don’t know. We’re dealing with it.
Q: Would you consider Marquice Cole a positive in the game?
BB: I think he did a number of good things, as he has the whole training camp; made plays in the kicking game, made plays on defense.
Q: Is it too early to tell how you might approach the final preseason game in terms of your starters?
BB: Right, we’ll talk about that in the next couple of days. We just got back late last night.
Q: We didn’t see a lot of live reps of tackling during practices. How would you assess the team’s tackling thus far through three games?
BB: I think all our fundamentals can be improved. Some of them are good at times, not perfect, we need to keep working on those things. We’ve had our moments.
Q: Is it possible we might see you start to do some trimming before Monday’s deadline? Some cuts over the weekend?
BB: I really don’t know. Like I said, we just got in about 4:30 this morning. We watched the film here this morning. We have a lot of things to do in a very short period of time. What exactly the time frame will be and how that will play out, I don’t know. That’s something after we’re done with this call, one of the many things we’ll talk about in our staff and scouting meetings and so forth here over the next couple days. We’ll just see how it all comes together. When we know what we’re doing, we’ll do it. We know what the deadlines are. If it happens before that it does. If it doesn’t then we’ll do it by the deadline.
