Patriots DB Adrian Phillips recognizes that the division is loaded with great quarterbacks, but the team is focusing on their preparation, not them.

You look at our schedule, it’s stacked with a bunch of quarterbacks,” Phillips said, via PFT. “But, honestly, we haven’t really talked about those guys in the offseason because it’s not about them, it’s about us.

Phillips has confidence in HC Bill Belichick to devise a game plan to slow them down.

We know that Bill is a master game planner,” he said. “When we get into the week after week stuff, that’s when we really talk about those guys.
