Bill on resting starters

FOXBOROUGH — With the No. 1 seed locked up, will the Patriots rest their starters in the final two games?

It was a question posed to coach Bill Belichick during his Wednesday press conference (10:50 a.m.) and his answer spoke volumes about the approach to expect.

“I think that’s a conversation that you can have, and the fans can have, but it’s not really part of our approach to the game,” Belichick responded. “I don’t think it’s a good one to have. I don’t really understand it either. You’re going to pick out one guy that is important and say somebody else isn’t? I don’t think that’s a good way to manage your football team.”
