Bill Belichick: 3 QBs not a hard decision

8/31/2014

A few notes from Bill Belichick's Sunday morning conference call with reporters:

Three quarterbacks not a hard decision. Asked if it was a challenging decision to keep three quarterbacks, Belichick paused briefly before saying, "I wouldn't say so. Fortunately, we have three good players at that position, three players we have a lot of confidence in. I'm sure there are some teams in the league that don't have that feeling about that position. They may not have one, I don't know. I've been in that position before. It's not a good place to be. We're fortunate we have three good players there. That's a good situation."

More roster moves to come. When Belichick was asked about not having a dedicated long-snapper on the roster following the release of Danny Aiken, he cautioned not to read too much into it. "I know there are a lot of things that are potentially in transition with a number of spots on our team," Belichick said. "I'm not saying they will or won't change. I'm not sure. We're looking at different options and we'll just do the best we can to put it together the best way we feel like we can and we'll just go from there. There are a lot of things we need to see between now and I'd say next Wednesday. I wouldn't commit to anything one way or another."

Preparations for Miami underway. While the personnel side of the operation is "grinding our way through the waiver wire" (practice squads can be formulated starting at 12 p.m. ET), Belichick said the coaching staff "is hard at work in our preparations for Miami."
