FOXBOROUGH -- The snow didn't prevent any players from arriving for work today at Gillette Stadium. Coach Bill Belichick said "we got everyone in here" despite the snow that made the commute a treacherous one this morning.

Some players opted to stay at nearby hotels and not risk being late. Last season, four players were sent home after they arrived late to the stadium after a morning snow fall. Belichick didn't give specifics of the contingency plans for the team.

"We have some experienced Northeastern drivers on our team," Belichick said.

The field could not be cleared so the team will practice inside the Dana-Farber Fieldhouse this afternoon.

Belichick also was asked about all the talk coming out of Florham Park, N.J. It was no surprise that he didn't participate in the chatter.

"Our job really is to get ready for the game, so that's what we're going to do," Belichick said.

He added, "That's out of our control. Our job is to get ready to play and that's what we're going to do."
