Chase Winovich has offered a hilarious comparison to the Patriots’ bounce-back mindset. The Patriots have very much dug themselves a hole that will very very tough to get themselves out of. It has been interesting to see them fall so far from the way they started the season.
Obviously the COVID situation has been hard on the Patriots. But Belichick promised a bounce back.
“Today’s an important day in our preparation for the Broncos,” Belichick said. “We’ve had several days now of virtual meetings between the staff members and from the staff to the players. We’ve been able to cover a lot of things, but we haven’t spent any time together, so today’s our opportunity to do that. We look forward to that. One thing that we’ve learned this year repeatedly has been we have to be ready to adjust and adapt to changes and modifications and the way we do things and, in some cases, decisions that really come down to a very short amount of time that we have to be ready to adjust to.
“So we’re certainly taking things day by day — probably hour by hour would be more accurate. We’ll just see how we progress and then as we find out more on our end, or if there are other things externally that we can’t control that, then we’ll deal with those as they come. That’s the way it’s been all year. I think our team and our players have done a good job of handling those adjustments, and we’ll continue to do that.”
Chase Winovich Gives Hilarious Comparison To Patriots’ Bounce-Back Mindset
But Chase Winovich was asked about the potential for a bounce back, he had a great response.
“I always say this, but it’s just like eating an elephant. I’d say one bite at a time.”
“You start looking big picture, and look at what’s going on around the league, or just around the country in general, and stuff becomes overwhelming. I think for us it really just starts with a great performance against the Jets. Just locking in to practice this week, and to our assignments and making sure we’re ready to go,” Winovich added. “You never know when that opportunity is going to knock. Well, I guess we do this week and that happens to be on ‘Monday Night Football.’ So, a lot to be excited about, and looking forward to the opportunity.”
“Yeah, to be honest sometimes I don’t really quite understand the gameplan. In terms of what goes into it and the snap count and all that stuff,” he said. “And that is what it is and the past three weeks have been a challenge, for sure. But it’s easy making plays for me, it’s tougher to kind of be idle while that goes on. But at the end of the day, this is a great opportunity, it’s a new week. Just to be able to go out and practice with my teammates and try to do what I can to help us win. I’m excited for it.”
