Belichick on Big Show: 'Good to be 12-2'

Patriots coach Bill Belichick joined The Big Show for his regular Monday visit and while he feels there were a number of things the Patriots could have done better in their 31-27 win over the Packers, he's obviously happy with the overall result. "It's good to be 12-2," Belichick said. "We've got a lot of work to do and we know that, but it's good to be 12-2." 

 

The coach was asked if his team had lost its edge after five straight wins that had many pundits declaring them the favorites for the Super Bowl. "It's hard to tell what's in 53 players' minds," he said. "All I know is, we've just got to do a better job. We've got to play better than what we played last night. I know we're capable of that. It was good enough to win and that's great and we're happy to be 12-2, but I know we can do better than that." 

 

Belichick did offer praise to several individual performances,...

Banta-Cain on D&H: 'Did what we had to do'

Patriots linebacker Tully Banta-Cain stopped by for a visit with the Dale & Holley show Monday afternoon at Gillette Stadium as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday.

 

Banta-Cain was called for having his hands on the facemask of Packers offensive lineman Bryan Bulaga while rushing the passer with 3:30 remaining in Sunday night's game. While the 15-yard penalty nullified a Patriots interception, Banta-Cain said he didn't let it bother him. "I kept a positive attitude and I really wasn't thinking of what the outcome would be had we lost and that had been the reason why," he said.

 

Banta-Cain ended up clinching the win by sacking quarterback Matt Flynn and forcing a fumble on the game's final play. "We did what we had to do," he said.

 

Another huge play was Dan Connolly's 71-yard interception return in the second quarter. Said Banta-Cain: "What a play, man. That's the play of the...

Arrington on D&H: Pick-six 'a blessing'

Patriots cornerback Kyle Arrington checked in with the Dale & Holley show Monday from Gillette Stadium to talk about his interception in Sunday night's 31-27 victory over the Packers.

 

Arrington grabbed a pass from Matt Flynn that was intended for receiver James Jones early in the second half. The cornerback broke four tackles during an impressive 33-yard return for a touchdown that put the Pats ahead 21-17. "It's one of those things where I don't get a lot of time to showcase my terrific running back skills," he said with a laugh. "I just said, you know what, as soon as I get the ball in my hands, I get an opportunity, I just try to maximize on it. I just tried to keep the legs moving, and it worked out in my favor."

 

It was the first career interception for Arrington, who is in his second season as a Patriot after spending time on the Eagles and Buccaneers practice squads, and his first career...

Wilfork on D&H: Critics need to back off

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork stopped by for a visit with Dale & Holley at Gillette Stadium as part of his weekly Patriots Monday appearance.

 

Wilfork said he takes positives and negatives from Sunday night's 31-27 victory over the Packers in which the defense had a number of struggles, especially on third down. It wasn't our greatest game," Wilfork acknowledged. "We didn't go our and dominate like we wanted to at times. ... If we play like that going forward, we will get beat."

 

That said, Wilfork noted that people need to have reasonable expections. Said the lineman: "You look at this game and say, 'Oh, the Patriots didn't play like they played the last couple of weeks.' The last couple of weeks we only gave up 10 points. We can't blow everybody out every week. I think sometimes as players, coaches or fans, you look at teams we played the last couple of weeks, we handled them pretty...
