Belichick wary of Stevie

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick grinds game tape to a pulp. That’s why when asked about Stevie Johnson’s production this season especially against some of the better corners in the league like Darrelle Revis and Champ Bailey he didn’t hesitate.

“Yeah, he did a good job, but Johnson has had a lot of success against everybody,” said Belichick. “He’s dangerous down the field and has catch and run plays like he had against the Giants, where he takes a short pass and turns it into a long play. He’s tough on the catch and run plays, he’s tough in the red zone and he can vertically get down the field as we saw, as the Jets saw. He’s gotten a lot of people, he’s had a lot of production.”

Johnson is 36 receiving yards from posting back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons for the first time in team history.
