    Coach B was doing his best Yogi Berra impression. Great stuff.

    Talking about Lion's receiver Calvin Johnson, he quipped: "Yeah, I would say, he’s definitely not covered even when he’s covered."

    Classic stuff.

    This is some of the most effusive, seemingly sincere praise I've ever heard from Belichick.

    Q: Can you talk about Devin McCourty and how he has stepped in as a rookie?

    BB: Devin’s really been a consistent player for us all year, from the first rookie mini-camp after the draft to all through the season. In the spring, spring workouts, training camp, preseason, he’s really the same guy every day: very alert, attentive, very professional. You wouldn’t know he’s a rookie; he acts and prepares like he’s been doing it for five or six years. He’s very attentive. He understands a lot of little things. When you give him a coaching point, he understands that it doesn’t apply to everything [and] it may only apply to one, particular situation or one little thing. But when that comes up again, he’s usually on it. He’s made a lot of improvement. Josh [Boyer] has done a good job with him, of making him aware of things that could make him a better player. And [Devin’s] done a good job of working on those things and improving on them. We see him doing things now that he wasn’t doing in October. We [saw] him doing things in September that he wasn’t doing in August, and that’s really a great feeling to have as a coach, but I think it’s also great for him as a player. He can see how much he’s improved and his techniques have improved in man-to-man coverage, zone coverage, ball skills, reading the quarterback, tackling, leverage, all those things. He’s done a good job for us and he continues to work hard and get better. He’s a great kid to coach. I’m glad he’s on our team. [He] works hard at special teams. Whatever you ask him to do, he gives you his best every play and that’s worth a lot.

    Just wow. If it wasn't for Suh, he'd be the DRoY.

    If it wasn't for DMc, the team would be giving up 450 passing yards a game :eek:

    Ah, the old master still has it! No wonder the local press love him.

    High praise for a rookie coming from BB and well deserved. I'd say McCourty is our most important player on D at this point. If he goes down (knock on wood), we'd have Butler and Arrington as our starters:eek:
