Big names don't change Patriots' approach

June 10, 2007|From the Associated Press

FOXBOROUGH, MASS. — Bill Belichick still twirls his whistle as he strolls around the practice field, ever the stone-faced boss. As usual, Tom Brady completes passes between defenders.

The Patriots added big-name players in the off-season -- none bigger than Randy Moss -- and with that came a buzz to minicamp. But one thing remains unchanged: the focus is on building a team that excels together, not spotlighting stars who stand apart.

Even Moss seems to buy into that.

"All I'm here to do is just to work hard every day," he said. "Hopefully, I can just give something."

Belichick sticks to his policy of avoiding questions about individual players, no matter how many headlines they made before he became their coach.

Asked at the end of minicamp Thursday if any player impressed him, he said: "I think that they're all working hard and they're trying to get [the system] down."
