New Patriots player..."Hey, we're the Patriots! We're really good! We never lose...we just ride the good life."
Belichick works hard to stomp out this kind of thinking. No hunger to be found in this type of attitude. No resiliency whatsoever.
Get wiped off the map in Detroit? Why not. The game doesn't count and the group needs to be reminded that they are human....40 points of human. Coach mentions "coachable moments."
The game was the moment...."you thought you were really good didn't ya?" Not so fast superstar,
Was it intentional? Of course not...out of the question...coach would never do anything like that to make his team better.
