Remember Wilfork's comments prior to the last game? All class. Heaping praise upon the Texans. Now Bill comes out and does the same thing. It's a well-known tactic that works on his own team and on others: Respect your opponent, do not instill a newfound anger in your opponent that doesn't need to be there, and make your own guys understand that anything can happen at any moment to change the outcome.
He's doing it right.
Good teams don't need to trash talk. Smart teams don't.
