The Patriots will be taking on the Texans Sunday in the first divisional playoff round. Bill Belichick has always done his best to prepare his team for everything, and when I say everything, I mean everything. He uses racquetball paddles to prepare Brady for defensive end J.J. Watt’s swatting ability. A clever way to prepare for that and now he is preparing his running backs, especially Stevan Ridley to have good ball security in the game. Ridley has shown fumbling problems throughout the season, the only blimp on a other wise wonderful season for the second year RB.
Belichick is using Vaseline, grease, baby powder, and water on the football to gain better ball security for the upcoming playoffs for his RBS. The Patriots can’t afford to turnover the ball to much if they want any chance of winning every game they play in this year’s playoff games. The RBS have been the most prone to fumbling and fumbled it twice against the Texans in the previous meeting. Bill Belichick knows that so he is going the extra mile to prepare his RB’s for the game and to help them hopefully hold onto the football.
