Bill Belichick Postgame Press Conference Transcript

Posted Dec 23, 2012

New England Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick addresses the media at EverBank Field following a regular season game versus the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, December 23, 2012.

(On the game)
“It’s always good to win. We got off to a slow start, but we made some plays to get back into the game right before the half. There’s always more work to do, but we have another week to work on things before we head into the playoffs.”

(On the defense)
“We had some pressure and we had pretty good coverage. We didn’t want to put ourselves in that situation, but fortunately we were able to bail out of it. It was a lot like the Denver game—similar situation--but we made the plays we needed to make to win. Defensively, we had good compound coverage and prior to that were able to knock the ball out a couple of times.”

(On the defensive backfield)
“They did a good job. Marquis Cole played the inside nickel position for us, Devin McCourt moved back to the outside and Patrick Chung and Tavon Wilson moved to the inside, so we had a lot of moving parts in the secondary back there. Overall I though they did a good job back there.”

(On the team’s slow start)
“Obviously, not what we wanted. They gave us a little different approach offensively, but we made some adjustments. Once we kind of saw what they were doing, our players and coaches got a better look at it and I think they did a good job. They started the game off with a little different style. They got the advantage on us, but eventually we settled down.”

(On the Patrick Chung penalty)
“I’ll have to take a closer look at it, I don’t know what he could’ve done.”

(On Tom Brady's protection)
“We don’t design plays for him to get hit, we try to protect the quarterback. That’s part of football, guys get hit.”
