You wouldn’t believe what this Patriots helper drinks every day.
If you work for Bill Belichick, you’re probably a quirky person who doesn’t get much sleep. After all, the New England Patriots The head coach breathes football so if you are on his team you either inherit that mentality or get chewed up pretty quickly.
Take, for example, the coordinator of special teams Cam Achord, who replaced Joe Judge after leaving to take on the New York Giants head coach job. You know the Pats couldn’t afford to miss a beat in special teams, an area they’ve been particularly astute in for the past 20 years.
One would therefore have to think that Achord was aware of the stakes after obtaining his promotion. Well sleep and nutrition be damned because it’s FOOTBALL TIME BABY!
Achord told reporters that he ingests an unthinkable amount of caffeine daily and now we can see why his rise in the NFL has been so notable. The man got a job with the Patriots after spending two years with Southwest Mississippi Community College as the football team’s offensive coordinator, special teams coordinator, quarterback / running back / tight ends coach and reception coordinator. Ten caffeinated drinks were probably needed by noon to take on all of these responsibilities.
This is now his third year in New England and his contributions are leaping at us. In addition to helping the special teams unit block a franchise record of four kicks last year, this very facet of the game has kept the Patriots afloat in 2020. While they don’t get some remarkable performances from ST against the Cardinals and Chargers, we might be watching a much more gloomy countryside.
On top of that, punter Jake Bailey and kicker Nick Folk have saved the Patriots on numerous occasions. Although it does not have all to do with Achord, there is no doubt that his presence played a role.
As for former 2020 fifth-round pick Justin Rohrwasser, well, he might have made the wrong impression when Achord was either insanely high or completely caffeine-deprived. Honestly, it could have been one or the other.
We’ve got to see some halftime or post-game speech from this guy, so get the mics on hot ASAP.
