Bill Belichick’s Post Game Press Conference Transcript--PatsFans: Here’s a look at Bill Belichick’s post-game transcript:  OPENING STATEMENT: “They made the plays they needed to make at the end to win, and that’s what it’s about. Obviously it wasn’t perfect, and there’s a lot of things we can do better, but they played the last few minutes of the game the way we need to play it and we were able to execute and make the plays so it’s always tough to win in the division, on the road, it’s good to get off to that start and now we’ve got a real quick turnaround for the Jets obviously. But it’s good to win, and I’m proud of the way our team played today. On his thoughts on the passing game: “We had our moments.  There were times where it was good, there was times when it wasn’t so good, it needs to be better. But we’ll build on this.  We’ll build on it.” On his thoughts on the chemistry between Brady and Amendola, especially on 3rd down: “Again, we had our moments.  I thought Danny stepped up and made some big catches in some tough situations, Tom as always competed like he always does and made some great throws in critical times.” On if the Bills did anything early that took them out of their rhythm: “They’re a good football team.  They’re very good defensively, they’ve got a good front, they play aggressively, have an aggressive scheme.  We let them back in the game with some turnovers, but then we fought our way out of it and we were able to make some plays at the end to win so I’m proud of that.” On how tough it was to prepare for a rookie quarterback and a rookie coach and all the unknowns: “There’s always a lot of unknowns on opening day.  It’s always that way.  Teams have a lot of time to prepare and you haven’t seen everything because of preseason and all that so it’s always a challenge on opening day.  We had to make a lot of adjustments in all three phases of the game, during the game, but that’s normal.” On his thoughts on Shane Vereen: “I think Shane stepped up, did a good job for us.  We counted on him a lot, he came through on a lot of plays, that was a huge run he had at the end to get us in field goal range, keep the ball in bounds and force them to use another timeout, that was  good play and that was a smart play.” On if he was surprised by all the turnovers by both sides: “Yeah, well, I mean that’s the NFL.  We’ve got to take care of the ball.  We’ve got to take care of the ball better.  We were fortunate to come up with them defensively but we’ve got to take care of the ball better.  That’s all there is to it.” With all the new players he has on offense if it’s going to take a while to get them in sync: “We’ve got a couple of new players over there, but I mean that’s everybody in the league.   A lot of guys we’ve seen out there a lot before.  All the offensive linemen, quarterback, running back, there’s a lot of guys that have played a lot of football for us out there.”
