New England Patriots Links 11/08/10 - Patriots Black And Blued By Browns

Bill Belichick's opening statement at his post-game presser.

"I'll start off by giving Cleveland a lot of credit. They did a great job today, they obviously did everything better than we did, every single thing you could measure. They were clearly the better team. They deserved to win and had an outstanding performance. We didn't do the things we need to do to win, to really be competitive, and that was the result of the game. Obviously, we have a lot of work to do. We're a better team than we showed today but we weren't today. Certainly hats off to them, they did a good job. Clearly the better team."

Tom Brady talks about the offense struggling.

"We were out of sync a little bit. We didn't have a very good day on offense. We've got to get back to work. They've got a very good team, a good scheme and obviously are well-coached so you've got to give them a lot of credit."

"It was a big play, but there were a lot of big plays in this game and ones we just didn't convert on and connect on. You don't lose because of one play. There were a lot of plays that we could have done better. As a group, we have to understand that we need to do better individually and go out there and get to work, get back to practicing better. If we play the way we played today, we're not going to beat anybody."

Rob Gronkowski mentions his fumble and frustration with the way he played.

"This is definitely frustrating, but you have to be able to put it behind you right after the game so you can keep moving on."

 "I fumbled it. It shouldn't be happening because I should have two hands on the ball. I shouldn't be letting defenders get in at the ball like that. I have to get low and get down."
