Tom talks about how much I taught him in those meetings, but I learned a lot from Tom“, sentenced Belichick. “I never played quarterback and I never saw the game through the eyes of a quarterback, I saw it through the eyes of a coach and what Tom He told me that he saw and how he saw it, it was incredible how during the game he would come out and say, ‘What happened in that play? He would describe eight things that happened… Then we would watch the video and each of those things would happen in the exact sequence that he explained as he left the field. He was thinking, ‘This guy sees everything.’

“He sees the pressure, he sees the routes, he sees the coverage, the depth and he sees a lot of things before taking the play. The memory and capacity that he had Tom to remember the finer plays, situations and points like counts, out of bounds plays and things like that, from years before in the same situation was remarkable.”

The coach couldn’t play quarterback and I couldn’t coach. The coach says a lot: ‘Do your job.’ He asked me to play quarterback, he didn’t ask me to coach.

“We spent a lot of time together. He started teaching me what football was all about, how to study defense when I first started playing. I couldn’t imagine a better teacher to say, ‘This is how you’re going to play quarterback in the NFL.'”
