Belichick Says Vinny Is Just The Emergency QB

Bill Belichick, head coach of the New England Patriots, was a little sensitive this week when asked whether he expected Vinny Testaverde to come in and compete with second-year man Matt Cassel for the backup quarterback job. "I'm not saying that," he said. "I didn't say it and don't even start that. He's an emergency quarterback. He's the third quarterback. He'll be inactive for every game as the third quarterback unless something happens to the other two guys. I don't know how I could possibly be any clearer than that. I don't think there's any need to ask that question six more times to get the same answer either. He's the third quarterback."

Vinny And The Pats

The Patriots have made three roster moves today, signing quarterback Vinny Testaverde and offensive lineman Gene Mruczkowski, and placing rookie tight end Garrett Mills on injured reserve.

Testaverde, who turned 43 on Nov. 13, adds a third quarterback to the roster. The Patriots also have Tom Brady and Matt Cassel.

Seymour Not Happy With Limited Role Versus Jets

Richard Seymour, defensive lineman for the Patriots, had his playing time limited in Sunday's game, and hinted that it wasn't his choice.

"I just go when my number is called. I don't say when I go in and come out," Seymour said. "We have coaches who tell us some of those rotations. We leave it up to them. Obviously, you don't always agree with everything that goes on, but you respect it. But you definitely don't have to agree with everything."
