I am pretty in awe at this point with Belichek. This guy knows how to get a team into the mind set to win ball games.
With a single minded purpose, Belichek puts the fear of every team they face into their heads. He makes them realize they cannot take aything for granted, even a team that is 14 point underdogs.
This shows respect for the other team, but it also gets the players heads on for playing football. None of this, you play to win BS we keep hearing all the time!
