Bill Belichick 8/10: 'We signed three players that we feel like will be competitive'

Posted Aug 10, 2014

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick addresses the media following practice at Gillette Stadium on Sunday, August 10, 2014.

BB: So we’re back on the field here. Obviously [we have] a lot of work to do, so we’ll just grind it out here one day at a time. We’ll try to keep making progress on our fundamentals and get into some situations as we move through the week here. We’ve got a long way to go and we’ve got a lot of work to do.

Q: Are you particularly looking forward to this week with another set of joint practices?

BB: We look forward to every week. Every opportunity we have to get better, we’ve got to take advantage of it.

Q: Were you able to address some of the problems from the game the other night in this practice?

BB: Yeah.

Q: Successfully? Were you pleased with that?

BB: That’s what we’re out here for. That’s what we’re out here for: to work on everything.

Q: No Ryan Mallett today. Is that injury related or something else?

BB: There’re all different players in different physical situations, so I'm not going to get into all that. We’d be here all day.

Q: Thoughts on the roster moves today?

BB: I mean, we’re looking for guys that are improving and kind of when they stop making improvement, then sometimes you feel like you’ve got to move on. We signed three players that we feel like will be competitive, but we’ll see.

Q: How’s Rob Gronkowski doing? Might we see him against the Eagles?

BB: I'm not going to get into an injury report on every guy. We’d be here all day. Rob will do what he can do.

Q: What did he do while you guys were down in Richmond? How did he stay fresh or what did he work on individually?

BB: Any of the players that didn’t travel had a rehabilitation program here. They all did – depending on what their situation was, they worked on that.

Q: What have you seen from Zach Moore through training camps so far? I know all the rookies have a big jump to make from college to the pros, but he must especially coming from a little different level in college.

BB: Yeah, he would have one of the biggest, no question, one of the biggest. He’s been out here every day, works hard. We’ve got a long way to go, but [he’s] getting better. He works on a lot of little things, he’s in good condition, he’s taken a lot of reps and he’ll need to take a lot more, but he’s making progress. Works hard. No issues, just a long way to go.

Q: The referees will be here this week, is that correct?

BB: Yes.

Q: How much does that help you guys during practice?

BB: I don’t know. We’ll see. We try to monitor ourselves, but obviously we’re not the ones throwing flags; they are. So we’ll get a little better feel for what they call in the practices. But I don’t think it’s a question of knowing the rules; I think we just have to be more disciplined and play with better technique.
