Belichick: Everyone needs to be ready

One of the top questions as the Patriots prepare to face the Texans is how Bill Belichick will manage his roster. On a conference call today, Belichick touched on his mindset regarding that topic.

Has Belichick thought about the idea of resting some starters?

“That’s not really something we’ve done and in all honesty I wouldn’t even anticipate doing it, having that discussion right now,” he replied. “What’s going to happen now is we’re going to go through the game-plan, players are going to come in tomorrow, and everybody is going to get ready to play. That’s how we’re going to approach it.

"Whoever plays, plays. Whoever doesn’t play, doesn’t play. It’s like that every week. We could go out there the first play of the game, something could happen and someone else could be in there. Everybody needs to be ready to go all the time.”
