Former New England Patriots safety and current NBC analyst Rodney Harrison gives us a little glimpse at what Monday was probably like after the Pats’ Sunday night loss to Seattle.
Mondays are “miserable” in Foxborough, he says.
“Yelling and screaming and a lot of different things. Sometimes we’d sit in a team meeting room for three and a half hours watching every single play and he’d call out guys — Tom Brady — everyone,” Harrison said Tuesday, per Conor Orr of NFL.com. “The week is miserable, he’s grumpy walking around wearing that hoodie. He ignores you in the hallway …”
In regards to losing at home to the Seahawks, Harrision chalks this one up to the coaching staff.
“I’m like why are they outsmarting themselves?… We talked all week about the game plan. It’s simple. Spread them out, put the tight ends out wide, put the little guys in the middle. You know what they play, they play zone, and just pick them apart… I was completely surprised that Josh McDaniels just outsmarted himself. They came out and wanted to run the ball. I’m getting text messages like why are they doing something that they typically don’t do? We saw the same thing with the Carolina Panthers (this week). They’re up 17-0 and start slinging the ball all over the place.”
