Bill Belichick has praised a giant Patriots practice squad QB. The Patriots have a very long way to go if they still want to make the playoffs this year. At the beginning of the season, a lot of people thought that this was the start of something big. And for the first few games, they did look pretty impressive. Sadly, they took a big step back.
With the onset of the COVID situation that hit them so hard, the Patriots did not look very good. And it started with Cam Newton, who took over as the starting Patriots WB at the beginning of this season. Head coach Bill Belichick talked about how they are taking things “hour by hour.”
“Today’s an important day in our preparation for the Broncos,” Belichick said. “We’ve had several days now of virtual meetings between the staff members and from the staff to the players. We’ve been able to cover a lot of things, but we haven’t spent any time together, so today’s our opportunity to do that. We look forward to that. One thing that we’ve learned this year repeatedly has been we have to be ready to adjust and adapt to changes and modifications and the way we do things and, in some cases, decisions that really come down to a very short amount of time that we have to be ready to adjust to.”
“So we’re certainly taking things day by day — probably hour by hour would be more accurate. We’ll just see how we progress and then as we find out more on our end, or if there are other things externally that we can’t control that, then we’ll deal with those as they come. That’s the way it’s been all year. I think our team and our players have done a good job of handling those adjustments, and we’ll continue to do that.”
Bill Belichick Praises Patriots Practice Squad QB
But they are still trying to stay focused on what is ahead of them. As such, Belichick has talked about what he has seen in practice. He had some great praise for a certain practice quad QB.
Dolegala is a very good pocket passer, but not in such a traditional way that you can expect him to stand still in the pocket. In fact, the Patriots used him to copy the Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson in practice prior to the Week 2 matchup.
