FOXBORO -- To the surprise of absolutely no one, Bill Belichick wasn't biting on any talk of revenge against the Colts Sunday night as he held his weekly Wednesday press conference at Gillette Stadium. That doesn't mean there weren't attempts. What do people you come across at the grocery store tell you about the game this week? "I haven't been to the grocery store in a couple of years," Belichick quipped. Have you heard from family and friends this week about the game? "Have I heard from my family and friends? Sure," Belichick replied. He was prodded just a little bit more and gave his most substantive answer on the matter. "Look, it's the same questions every week," Belichick said. "We're getting ready to play a game on Sunday. We're going to do the best we can to prepare for it, be ready to go and perform well on Sunday night. That's what we do." There was one significant difference about the Belichick press conference Wednesday. Usually, he opens with a one or two-minute statement on the opposing team. On Wednesday, possibly because he was fighting a very bad cold, he decided to open it up to questions immediately. Belichick was also asked about the possibility of facing Matt Hasselbeck instead of Andrew Luck, who is still battling a sore right shoulder. "There'll a little bit of a game plan team anyway," Belichick said. "They don't always do the same thing every week. It depends on what the defense does, where they feel their matchups are. Some of that changes a little bit from game to game. So, I'm sure they'll have whatever they think is best against us, I'm sure that's what they'll do against us."
