Patriots coach Bill Belichick spoke to the media today via a phone conference, something he does every week.
He spent the time talking about Miami and their quick turnaround in the past few weeks.
He was asked about Suh and his play against the Texans.
“He’s played well,” Belichick said. “They had a hard time blocking him. They had a hard time blocking all those guys. [Cameron] Wake had a big day. Suh had a big day. Reshad Jones had a big day. They’re a very talented defense, really good up front, [Earl] Mitchell is a good player, both ends, both tackles, linebackers, but yeah, they are all a problem. Suh, he’s near the top of the list, that’s for sure.”
He was asked what the Dolphins were doing differently since Dan Campbell took over the defense.
“I’d say they’ve simplified it,” Belichick said. “The number of the things they’re running, like the number of calls that they have, it appears to be definitely a lot less than what it was before, and so they’re trying to, I’d say it looks like they’re doing fewer things than they’ve done, they’re doing them better, they’re playing faster, they’re more aggressive, and so it looks like they’ve cut back the scheme a little bit defensively for higher execution.”
