SI Pats Preview Quotes
From Dr. Z's Preview:
TB on Maroney:
"He's a strange kind of a back. He's not the kind of guy who'll pound it inside, but you see him take off around the edge, and he'll get hemmed in, and it looks like about a two-yard run. But before you know it, he's nine yards downfield and no one's tackled him. You never know what's going to happen if you get the ball in his hands."
TB on Watson:
"Don't be surprised if you see him lining up outside as a wide receiver.
We want to do anything we can to get him the ball in space."
Belichick on adversity:
"I'm used to adversity. Some of our best seasons were achieved through adversity. In 2001 our quarterbacks coach, Dick Rehbein, died of heart failure. Then we lost our starting quarterback, Drew Bledsoe, and Tom Brady led us to a Super Bowl victory. In 2003 our offensive line was banged up, and everybody was asking how we were going to handle the Panthers' defensive line in the Super Bowl with a unit that had a rookie and two free agents. We did O.K. Then the next year our secondary was a shambles, and we got through. If your organization is strong enough, you find a way."
p.s. Don't look, but they have the Fins winning the AFC!!!
