Patriots Coach Bill Belichick Says Randy Moss Is The Smartest Receiver He’s Ever Been Around
New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick poked a little fun at himself but also shed a little light on what makes Randy Moss an exceptional receiver on Friday, giving fascinating insight into one of the best wideouts in NFL history.
“I think you can get a bunch of people in the room and some people…if the TV’s busted, some people can walk in there and fix it,” Belichick said. “I look at it, all I see is wires — TV, VCR, Sirius radio, whatever it is. It all looks the same to me. It’s just a bunch of wires. If I hit the button and it doesn’t turn on, that’s it.
“There’s other people that come in there and ‘boom, boom, boom,’ everything works. Some people have the capacity to see some things. Some people have trouble with math, some people have trouble with the English language — I have trouble with both of them. They’re all different strengths and weaknesses. You coach players (and) some guys see things, they see everything. Some guys, they see nothing.”
Belichick expounded, saying that Moss is the smartest receiver he’s ever been around, and knows not just where he’s supposed to be on every play, but also where all of his teammates are supposed to be and what the defense is going to do.
