Bill Belichick joins The Big Show to discuss Sunday's win against the Titans
Highlights from Bill Belichick on WEEI “The Big Show”
On BenJarvus Green-Ellis on the flea-flicker…
It was very well-executed. Wes was actually on an over route and Randy was on a deep post, but had Wes just kept going, he would have probably been five yards behind the defense too. You don’t want to have both guys running in the same place, but it was a play where had we had the pattern reversed — had Randy been under and Wes had been deep — Wes would have been five yards behind them. So, it had a lot of sell to it, and it was great protection. BenJarvus sold it and drew everybody up there. Tom made a great throw and Randy ran through it.
On being in the two-minute drill before the half with a big lead…
It’s halftime. We’ve seen those games before. Last year in the Arizona-Jets game. Buffalo game against Houston. The Tampa and Indianapolis game a few years back. It’s halftime. We’re still trying to score. We’re still trying … the games not even half over. We’re still trying to score.
On Adalius Thomas been inactive — is that a week-to-week thing, or is it more permanent than that? Was it merit or was it a matter of the game plan for the day?
We have a lot of … we had a lot of healthy players on defense and with Junior in, that gave us an extra inside linebacker, which we really haven’t had. With Eric Alexander, primarily a special teams and contributing in some sub defenses, and Junior being a little more of a first- and second-down type of linebacker. That kind of squeezed us a little bit. We made one of our defensive linemen inactive and two of our defensive backs. Pierre and Rob Ninkovich both have significant roles in the kicking game and also have played on defense last week against Denver. And of course Derrick and Tully, so you can’t have everybody there.
Was Adalius here yesterday?
We talked to him … we had a meeting Sunday morning. We told most of the inactive players at that meeting Sunday morning what their status was.
Are inactive players required to stay here with the team or can they leave?
It can … it can be either one.
Do you have a problem with him leaving?
Oh, no no no. I don’t think he ever … I don’t think he left. I think after the meeting, we tell some players they don’t have to be at the game

Banta-Cain 2009 Salary $2,300,000
$620,000 and $0 pro-rated signing bonus
Where did you those numbers. A quick check of Miguel's pages show that they are seriously wrong.
TBC's salary was $620,00 with no prorated signing bonus and he counted even less against the cap because of vet minimum.
“When we look at the board, based on everything we want in a football player at that particular time, we evaluate them and take the player that fits best for our football team. That’s what we always do, and I think the last nine years we’ve put a pretty competitive team out there on the field every year. I think that’s how you do it – you get good football players. Sometimes they are not always at the No. 1 position, but I don’t think you pass up good football players to get the guys who aren’t as good just because they’re at a position that somebody feels you need.”

I'm definitely going to have to listen to that one. He had as good an answer as he could hope to come up with, and it still adds up to AD not getting it done. As for not having him on the sidelines, he probably figured AD would be a restless distraction, like Garnett when he was out for the Celtics - only worse, because he was shocked and angry. "Go ahead up to the press box and chill out, AD."
Or maybe he showed up to the stadium in inappropriate attire.
