Re: The Lawfirm Retained?

Bill Belichick: [W]hen we took Butch Woolfolk and then followed that up with Joe Morris [in the 1982 draft with the Giants]. [T]hat was another ‘stupid pick’ of ‘why take Joe Morris when you had already taken a running back? What are you going to do – get two balls out there and give one to each guy?’ Again, Joe Morris really took us to the ‘86 championship. I think if you believe in your system and you believe in your grades like you said, you’ve studied that all year, those are the players that you have a conviction on and [you're] probably better off staying with them on draft day rather than trying to regrade a guy five minutes before you pick because of some arbitrary reason.

‘Nuff said.
