Belichick on Griffin

Bill Belichick on Houston tight end Ryan Griffin, who played at Londonderry High School:

“Yeah, he’s done a good job for them. He’s made some good catches in critical situations – two-minute, third down, red area. They’ve gone to him in a couple of key situations, which tells you they are either trying to get him the ball or have a lot of confidence in him, or both, however you want to look at it. He’s been productive for them really pretty much in every game in the passing game, both down the field and on short to immediate type routes. He has a good route tree and he’s definitely evolved and been one of their primary targets more so than earlier in the year where the tight ends were getting fewer balls. They lost a couple receivers, they lost [Braxton] Miller, they lost [Jaelen] Strong, but it seems like their tight ends have gotten, including [Stephen] Anderson and [C.J.] Fiedorowicz, that those guys have just, their targets have gone up over the course of the year. They’ve been getting the tight ends more involved in the passing game.”
