Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is a great time manager, and his ability to prioritize tasks is legendary. His game-week schedules are favored by players because they appreciate that he’s sensitive to their bodies and energy levels throughout the day. If players can get into routines that maximize their time, they will become exponentially successful.
It’s 90 degrees out today? Give me the mock hoodie and I’ll just turn it inside out.

Good video, even if it is Jets pornography.
“[Our] philosophy on first and second down is to stop the run and play good zone pass defense. We will occasionally play man-to-man and blitz in this situation. On third down, we will primarily play man-to-man and mix-in some zone and blitzes. We will rush four or more players versus the pass about ninety-percent of the time.
“In all situations, we will defend the inside or middle of the field first – defend inside to outside. Against the run, we will not allow the ball to be run inside. We want to force the ball outside. Against the pass, we will not allow the ball to be thrown deep down the middle or inside. We want to force the ball to be thrown short and/or outside.
“… Finally, our job is to take the ball away from the opponents’ offense and score or set up good field position for our offense. We must knock the ball loose, force mistakes, and cause turnovers. Turnovers and making big plays win games. We will be alert and aggressive and take advantage of every opportunity to come up with the ball … . The trademark of our defense will be effort, toughness, and no mental mistakes regarding score or situation in any game.”
