Looking Underneath The Hood: Belichick To Be Featured In NFL Films Documentary
Published August 30, 2011
CANDID CAMERA: Belichick appeared on WEEI-AM's "The Big Show" and discussed the project, saying when NFL Films "came to me about it with my 35th year in the league and the Patriots' 50th anniversary season, we talked about that aspect of history and decided that we would try to accommodate them." Belichick said, "I don’t think I can ever remember one time during the season where I actually consciously thought about it, like, ‘I better not say this,’ or ‘I better not say that.’ I have so much trust in NFL Films and the people down there and what they’ve done, I have the trust and confidence in them to just do what I do and let them present it.” Belichick: "When we did it initially, the thought was that it would be used for another day, that it wasn’t going to be a highlight film of the ’09 season and it wasn’t intended for specific ‘this is what it’s going to be.’ It was, ‘We’ll get some footage from the season,’ and somewhere along the line they felt like they would be able to use it." He added this project will be a "one-time thing." Belichick: "It's really something I don’t have anything to do with or know anything about. I’m a coach, I’m not a film producer” ("The Big Show," WEEI-AM, 8/29).
