The Patriots may not be playing at home in Week 18, but that doesn’t mean Friday’s impending snowstorm isn’t something the team needs to prepare for – especially with Bill Belichick leading the way.

Snow is no excuse for being late at One Patriots Place. Stories about Belichick disciplining players are often shared by Patriots fans, but it appears the head coach passes them on to his current players as examples as well.

Speaking with the media Thursday morning, defensive tackle Davon Godchaux was asked if Belichick has filled the team in on his snow policy, ahead of the first major snowstorm of the year. “You must have been in our meeting this morning,” Godchaux replies, unable to resist a smile even before the question was finished.

Godchaux grew up in southern Louisiana, attended LSU, then was drafted by the Miami Dolphins. The six to 10 inches of snow predicted for Foxborough will likely be a new experience for the 27-year-old, who signed with the Patriots this offseason.
