Bill Belichick Postgame Press Conference Transcript

Posted Sep 23, 2012

New England Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick addresses the media at M&T Bank Stadium following a regular season game versus the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, September 23, 2012.

(opening statement) “Good football game. Tough loss. Both teams competed hard. In the end, we just came up a little bit short. Not too much more to say than that.”

(on getting the referees’ attention at the end of the game) “I’m not going to comment about that. You saw the game. What did we have, 30 penalties called in that game?”

(on if he thinks he’ll get fined for trying to grab the referee) “No.”

(on what the Ravens did to get their rhythm in the last four minutes) “I don’t know, you’ll have to talk to them about that.”

(on impressions of WR Wes Welker) “I think we had a lot of guys that played hard. I can’t watch everybody out there, but a lot of guys played hard.”

(on the Ravens’ adjustments) “I don’t know. I thought we moved the ball pretty well in the second half. But you’ll have to ask them what adjustments they made. You’ll have to talk to them about that.”

(on managing the tempo of the game) “It’s our job to go out there and control what we can control. That’s what we’re going to try to work on. Can’t control anything else. Talk to the officials about the way they called the game. Talk to the league about the way they called it. I don’t know. But we just have to go out there and try to play the best we can.”

(on the three-wide, no-huddle offense) “We thought we had a good plan of attack against the Ravens. We did a number of different things in the game. We did what we thought was best. Obviously it didn’t work out quite as good as we thought it would. But there were some good things.”

(on moving the ball in the last four minutes) “What else would we do in that situation? Give them the ball back? When we’re on offense, we try to move the ball. What else would we do on offense? We sent the offense on the field to move the ball. At the end of the game, sometimes you don’t need points, you just try to move the ball and run out the clock. That’s what the offense is on the field for. What else would they do?”

(on seeing the final field goal from the sideline) “I couldn’t see from the sideline. No. It looked close. Again, you should talk to the people who made the calls. I’m just trying to coach the game.”

(on if he was told if the field goal was reviewed) “That’s not our call. So you should talk to the officials and ask them those questions, because obviously I don’t have the answer. I’m just coaching the game and watching it like you are. So you should ask them those questions. I can’t answer them.”

(on struggling on the outside defensively) “I don’t know. There were plays that were good inside and some that were not so good, and plays that were good outside, and some that were not so good. In the end, it wasn’t really good enough. We’ll have to work to do a better job.”
