In an interview during the “Dale & Holley with Keefe” program of the local Boston radio station, WEEI, Belichick seemed to complain that he had to play outside the United States.
“Personally, I’m in no hurry to do it again,” the head coach told the radio program. “It’s a very long distance to go for a game, there’s a lot to do in terms of logistics for it, they’re not used to having a football team so you have to get there and take care of many aspects of logistics. This week, we are tired, we are tired from the trip, it was a good trip, but it took us a lot, look, we played eight games of visit and eight at home every year, It is what it is, I do not think it would necessarily be in great hurry to come back again, but if that’s where it’s scheduled, sure, we’ll play it there. ”

For Belichick, the trip to Mexico involved much more than a traditional trip to visit within North American territory.
“It’s a lot,” the head coach of the Patriots admitted to WEEI. “We spent a lot of time talking about altitude, about hydration, about food, about water, about training elements like that, a lot more than, say, Denver, choose another city that has some similarities, but it’s quite different. They did a great job of dealing with all the challenges we faced, I think we were fortunate that there were no volcanic eruptions, earthquakes or anything else while we were in. I mean, there are two NFL franchises in an area where I do not know how stable It was the geological plates (sic) below us, but nothing happened, so it was good. ”
The team spent the week prior to their trip to Mexico training in Colorado Springs, near Denver, after beating the Broncos on the previous day. The idea was to accustom players to altitude.
