“Definitely Got Better” – Patriots Coach Bill Belichick Optimistic Despite Humbling loss

October 26, 2020 5:00 pm

Tom Brady’s exit from Boston was bound to affect the New England Patriots in some manner. But no one would have predicted that the six-time Super Bowl champions will be 2-4 heading into Week Eight, especially after their strong start to the season.  Head coach Bill Belichick will be determined to turn things around as we approach the halfway stage of the competition.

An underperforming Cam Newton, a leaky defense, and an injury pile-up have led to all sorts of problems for the Pats. With Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer both failing to impress over the last few weeks, the Patriots seem to be in a tough position as far as their ‘quarterback issue’ is concerned.

However, coach Belichick maintains his belief in Newton. Will that come back to bite him when we reach the end of the 2020 season? Time will tell.

New England Patriots head coach, Bill Belichick, addressed the media after Sunday’s hammering at the hands of the Niners.

“We got better last week, we needed to get back on the practice field, we definitely got better. We improved in some areas. It didn’t show up on the score. We still have a lot of work to do, but some of the things that we worked on were better. But we’re still a long way from where we need to be. That’s obvious.”

“We just got to get back to work and keep working and find a way to play better than we played tonight and coach better than we coached tonight. So really there’s not much else to say about it. The 49ers are a good team. (49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan) did a good job like he always does. And but we just, we just didn’t do enough and look at what the results were,” Belichick said after the game as per NESN.

The Patriots are still third in the AFC East Division behind the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins. The only team below them in the East is Adam Gase’s New York Jets, who are yet to win a single NFL game in 2020.

Cam Newton and the rest of the Patriots will undoubtedly need some things to change if they want to challenge for a playoff spot this season.
