New England Patriots: Conference Calls

Quick hits from conference calls

Ric Tapia/Icon SMIThe Patriots have turned their attention to their Week 2 opponent, the San Diego Chargers.
The Patriots didn't get back to Gillette Stadium until 5 a.m. Tuesday morning and players were given their normal day off before starting preparations for Sunday's home-opener against the Chargers. As part of conference calls with the media, coach Bill Belichick said he got right to work on San Diego and hadn't reviewed game film from Monday's 38-24 triumph over the Dolphins yet.

"It's a quick turnaround, we're on to San Diego," said Belichick. "I haven't had a chance to look at Miami, we're just trying to get started on San Diego, so we'll get to [the Miami film] tomorrow -- later tonight or tomorrow morning, we'll see how it goes. Of course it's good go down there, playing on the road with all the conditions we had to deal with, and come away with the win. It's great to be 1-0, but we have to put that behind us and turn our attention to the Chargers.

"I know we were pretty fortunate out there last year that we had a lot of turnovers and some breaks go our way, so we’ve got a lot to do against a good football team. We’re just going to turn the page quickly and get onto them."

Here are some more highlights from the evening conference calls with Belichick, personnel director Nick Caserio, and offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien:
