Apparently, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick has been doing his homework and apparently that research goes beyond the film room.
Belichick referenced an article from Sports Illustrated written by Peter King when discussing Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians, who Belichick will coach against this weekend.
“I think if you just read the article last year in Sports Illustrated you get a sense of how broad their game plan is, how many options they have,” Belichick said, according to Mike Reiss. “I mean it would be impossible to get ready for all of those just based on the volume of what they do, but I’d say that’s reflected in the way they play.”
So, it appears Belichick does care what the media thinks, at least a little bit.
