Bill Belichick Postgame Press Conference Transcript

Posted Dec 2, 2012

New England Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick addresses the media at Sun Life Stadium following a regular season game versus the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, December 2, 2012.

(Opening remarks)
“It’s good to get another division win. We accomplished one of our goals this year, to be in the postseason. That’s good, but more importantly we just gotta keep working to get better. We still got a lot of football left to play. We got a long way to go. Hopefully we can improve every week.”

(On their final drive where they burned off seven minutes)
“That was our best drive of the day. We needed it … we did a good job of blocking.”

(On the adjustments he made in the running game as the game went on)
“We didn’t really make any big adjustments. “

(On taking advantage of the Dolphins’ mistakes)
“We try to do that every week. We try to take advantage of other teams mistakes.”

(On being shorthanded at receiver but WR Brandon Lloyd having only one catch)
“Ah no. No particular reason.”

(One if the play where Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill was sacked late in the 4th quarter was a called blitz)
“I’m not sure exactly how we had that going.”

(On winning the game despite tallying such low overall yardage)
“It’s always good to win. It’s hard to win in this league so it’s always good to win. It’s not about stats, it’s about wins. That’s what we’re here for.”

(On if he’s going to wear their new division champion hat and t-shirt on the trip home)
“Well, it’s good to have them. It’s always good to get one.”

(On the importance of the young team clinching the division so early in the season)
“We got a long way to go. We still got a quarter of the season left and that’s a lot of opportunities for us to improve, which we need to do. Certainly on offense we can do better than we did today. We’ll just keep working to get better each week. We got a real good football team coming in … so, we’ll get ready for Houston because that’ll be a big challenge.”

(On the Dolphins defense, especially against the run)
“Yeah, they’re a real good run defense. They got a lot of physical players up front. They’ve got a good front … (Cameron) Wake, (Randy) Starks, (Paul) Soliai, Koa Misi. Those guys are good.”
