FILE - In this Dec. 1, 2013, file photo, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick walks the sidelines before an NFL football game against the Houston Texans in Houston. Last season, only 73 linebackers played more than two-thirds of the league-wide average of running and passing plays. Belichick recalls having Lawrence Taylor, Carl Banks, Pepper Johnson and Harry Carson in the 1980s when he was linebackers coach and defensive coordinator for the Giants. "I can't remember too many times when (they) were standing behind me," Belichick said, "but it wasn't very often." (AP Photo/David J. Phillip, File)
