Stevan Ridley RB NE Oct 08 '12
Patriots coach Bill Belichick didn't sound pleased when asked about Stevan Ridley's second fumble in as many games during his Monday press conference.
"There's nothing more important than possession of the ball," Belichick said. "We can't afford to lose it, it's as simple as that." Ridley is a centerpiece of the New England offense, but Belichick indicated that ball security is a priority, and he has benched Ridley for fumbling before. "We talk and work on ball security every day with everybody," said Belichick. "Everybody who handles it, it's important. It's the highest priority with everybody."
