Patriots head coach joined The Greg Hill Show Monday morning as a part of Patriots Monday, and like Sunday night after the game against the Giants, he did not give anything related to who the starting quarterback will be.
“We have a lot of decisions to make, and we have a timetable we have to make them on and we’ll work through the process here, like we usually do," he said. "Just got back. We’ll have to re-group here as a staff and figure out what the best decisions for the team are on a lot of areas and do the best we can.”
Cam Newton started all three preseason games and got the most playing time with the starters, while rookie Mac Jones has been impressive, but virtually all of his work in games has been with backups.
Belichick did indicate he's been impressed with Jones' work ethic.
“Mac has come in here and worked hard," he said. "He’s put in a ton of work every day. I think that has paid off and it’s showed up in the things he’s been able to improve on. If he makes a mistake he learns from it and works hard at it — he works hard in the first place so he doesn’t make mistakes. Maybe he gets it right the first time, which is sometimes hard at that position. His work ethic is very good.”
The Patriots need to get their rosters down to 53 players by Tuesday afternoon.
