The New England Patriots are just over two weeks away from the start of the regular season. With the preseason almost over, Bill Belichick is a busy man.
With the NFL season quickly approaching, the New England Patriots are extremely busy trying to get ready for the start of the season. Since the Patriots won the Super Bowl last year, they will be starting a few days before everyone else on the first Thursday Night Football game of the year.
In the NFL, every day of preparation is extremely important. For the Patriots, they are going to be squeezing two more preseason games before the start of the regular season. Considering that the Patriots open on September 7th, preparation for the regular season is quickly approaching.
For Bill Belichick, he prides himself on being one of the most prepared coaches in the NFL. His hard work is one of the reasons why the Patriots have been able to win five Super Bowls with him as the head coach.
Recently, Belichick noted that this is an extremely difficult time of the year for the coaches. While they are getting prepared for the Detroit Lions on August 25th, they are also looking ahead to the Chiefs and roster cuts.
Belichick certainly has a point. With just over two weeks to go before the start of the season, there is a lot to do in New England. With the third preseason game against the Lions being an important one, the Patriots want to make sure they are sharp going into the regular season.
While the final preseason game against the Giants likely won’t feature any starters for a lot of snaps if any at all, that game could be crucial for players trying to make the team. Even though the starters are the most important, having solid depth is something that has helped the Patriots sustain success.
With the regular season quickly approaching, Bill Belichick is certainly going to be a busy man.
