"It came from Bill Belichick, we stole it from him," Schmidt said. "It's 'Do your job.' We want our kids to come out everyday and get a little better. But if you want to play Friday night, you need to do your job. No more, no less, do your job. It's on the jerseys, it's in the locker room, it's branded everywhere."
