Bill Belichick says the Patriots have a long way to go after first preseason game


The Patriots won their first game of the preseason last night over the Washington Redskins, 26-17.

While there were some highlights, a lot of it wasn't pretty, and Bill Belichick knows that. In his post-game press conference, Belichick noted that the Patriots have to continue to get better and have a ways to go before they can feel good about themselves.


"I thought we gave a good, competitive effort in the second half," Belichick said. "I thought there were a lot of guys that tried to play hard. Certainly there were a lot of mistakes in the game, a lot of things we need to work on."

Belichick also touched on Devin Lucien, who was one of the standouts from last night.
