FOXBOROUGH – Patriots coach Bill Belichick, looking slightly scruffier than the first day of training camp, said the goal on Saturday was to build on what the team started during Friday’s soggy opener. The Patriots will spend one more day in shorts and light gear before putting on full pads on Sunday.
“We’re really in the mindset now of just trying to string them together, take the things we did yesterday, correct them, go back over them, add new things to put in today, go out and work on those, just grind it day by day,” Belichick said, prior to the team’s second camp practice. “No magic wand, no special formula, just hard work, putting the pieces in place one at a time, day by day, period by period. Each guy has a lot of things they all need to work on, we all need to work on, coaches included, this time of year.”
