Patriots Depth Living Up to “Next Man Up” Philosophy
BY RANDOLPH CHARLOTIN (CORRESPONDENT) ON JANUARY 17, 2013
(...)
This would had been a crisis for many teams. For the Patriots, it was just next man up.

Those three words have become part of The Patriot Way. Like “Do Your Job,” “Next Man Up” is a simple and definitive instruction for all players to follow, integral to New England’s philosophy.

It was repeated over and over like a song’s chorus by the players in 2012 as injuries, suspensions and poor performance required the next player in line to step in and capably fill in. The team hasn’t missed a beat.

Bernstein: Enough With ‘Next Man Up’

Instead of this all being assumed practice in every workplace anywhere, ever, it’s now considered “strategy” to “employ” to…put a guy in a game. It’s a “mentality” that b-teamers are on a roster and are expected to perform when needed, and it’s a “philosophy” to tell whomever is on a lower tier that it’s now his turn.
