Bill Belichick Reacts to New England Patriots’ Current Salary Cap Situation

Bill Belichick has reacted to New England Patriots current salary cap situation. The Patriots are in a bit of a bind. They definitely need improvements on both the offense and defense but it might be an uphill battle. They looked pretty impressive towards the beginning of the season. Sadly, they have taken a bit step back. A lot of this started with the onset of the COVID situation.

Belichick has talked about this in the past. He said that the team was 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.”
