Belichick: Skip right to training camp

Patriots coach Bill Belichick discusses his approach to the NFL's lockout, telling Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald that he's not planning for organized team activities.

“At one point, we had to prepare for the offseason program, and that’s not really a part of it now,” Belichick says. “We talked about some kind of minicamp or [organized team activities], but now, we just turn our attention to training camp and get our teaching and organization straight there.”

Belichick also agrees with the point that playbooks could be reduced.

"Something’s going to have to go, I would think," Belichick tells Rapoport. "The progression’s got to stay the same, but the breadth of that amount of installation could be subject to being trimmed back, maybe drastically.”
