Deion Branch is asked by the NY media if any doubt is starting to creep into the locker room.
No doubts around here, and that's me being honest. We see in the film what we're doing wrong. ... Guys are still very enthusiastic about coming in, getting the gameplan for this week and getting out to practice and seeing what (is the) gameplan for this game to play the Jets. As far as the two losses, we looked at the film once we came in. We can see the mistakes that we made during the course of the game. Very coachable, and that's why I do know and understand why the coaches are not all down on us. We're all mad about the losses, but at the same time there are very coachable mistakes that were made during the course of the games, and hopefully we'll try to go out and eliminate those things so we don't go down that road again.
Bill Belichick touches briefly on Albert Haynesworth's departure in his opening remarks to the media.
We announced some rosters moves here this morning. I'll just say on the Albert [Haynesworth] situation, I thought that both he and myself, speaking for the staff, we really tried to make it work. He had a few physical limitations to overcome when he got here but I thought he really tried to do what we asked him to do. We tried to work with him and in the end it just obviously didn't work out. The best thing we can do is just move on. Unfortunately, we had to place Josh [Barrett] on Injured Reserve which is a tough break for him. Kid has worked hard and I wish it would have turned out different for him this year but it is what it is. It's onto the Jets - a team that is playing well, doing a good job in all three phases of the game, they're always good in the kicking game. They played well in their recent wins - good offense, good defense. It will be a big challenge for us down there, I'm sure there will be a lot of energy in the crowd. We'll have to do a good job of not only playing well but keeping our poise and staying focused in that environment. It's a hard place to play in but we have to do a good job on that. That's where we're at here.
