Week after week throughout the NFL season, sports reporters across the country pry for insight into the coming week’s game strategy. When it comes to gaining journalistic substance, it can be frustrating for the media.
However, this was a unique week for the NFL, as coaches from around the league offered a rare peek behind the curtain, revealing intimate game strategies. Our very own sports reporter Joe Schmuck hit the ground running and gained some revealing insight from head coaches around the league:
“Our plan on Sunday is to score some points. We’re going to hold on to the ball and get it into the end zone. That’s what we’re going to do.” – Bill Belichick, New England Patriots
“Our offense needs to put the ball in the air. Our defense needs to penetrate the line. That’s our game plan for Sunday.” – Andy Reid, Kansas City Chiefs
“It’s going to be a big game. But we have a good group of guys. We need to play well on both sides of the ball.” – Sean Payton, New Orleans Saints
“We’re going to get back to fundamentals and come together as a team. That’s how we’re going to win on Sunday.” – Mike Tomlin, Pittsburgh Steelers
“We’re working out a few kinks, but we have a good team. There’s only a couple weeks left, so we need to win some football games.” – Jon Gruden, Oakland Raiders
Well done, Joe. Well done.
