Belichick not a fan of NFL analytics websites Dan Leberfeld

Patriots coach Bill Belichick isn’t a big fan of NFL analytics websites which are so popular these days.

Late last year he said – “With all due respect to those websites, I don’t really know how some of that information is determined or evaluated,” Belichick said on WEEI. “I know that in the past, we’ve looked at those websites — not any one in particular — but just in general we’ve looked at those websites and said, ‘OK, here’s their top rated guy. Where are we?’ just to kind of gauge where we feel like the value of the websites are. If they’re rating them the same as we are, maybe that’s something we need to keep a close eye on so we can start to track a lot of guys. If there’s some big discrepancy, is there really any value to that? I’d say a lot of that stuff is not real accurate, so take it with a grain of salt.”

In the summer of 2013 he said – “I don’t know how you can know [fault] unless you’re really part of the team and know exactly what was supposed to happen on that play. I know there are a lot of experts out there that have it all figured out but I definitely don’t.”

Christian Hackenberg probably isn’t a fan of these sites either.
