    Re: more camp observations

    Again, much appreciated, rkarp.  I love that Ras-I looks good, and Ford has been a dark-horse favorite of mine all along. I think it would be cool if both him and Sudfeld made it. Glad to hear Cole looks good, too. I like him better than Ebner. I hope Armstead doesn't miss any games, but his status is clearly up in the air.  All things considered, sounds like camp is moving along pretty well. I'm also thrilled that Collins I looking this good this early!

    thanks for the first-hand feedback ... 

    maybe some observations from next week will change your mind, but who do you think BB will try to keep under the radar and slide onto the practice squad?

    also, which returning players do you see as being in the most jeopardy of being cut?

    Nice stuff Rkarp.

    I know it's only been 4 days and it's way too early to tell, but which WRs have looked well behind the others?

    Yeah Rkarp.. you said DA looked great and I know you have already commented on the other WR's, but could please elaborate again on the other WR's a little more?  Curious as most probably are...  Thanks again, and great info.

    Good stuff again rkarp, thank you.

    By "Rutgers Guys" I assume you are talking about 3rd round DBs Ryan and Harmon. Anything positive from these guys would be a plus but there's a bunch of guys ahead of them on the depth chart. Health permitted, they should only be needed as backups.

    Awesome stuff rkarp.  Thanks for posting all of that.  Very interesting to read and compare to what is being reported in other outlets.

    I read where Dobson was held out of practice yesterday do to someone stepping on his ankle.  It was reported that he was limping around yesterday on the sidelines and should be back tomorrow.  Does this fit your observation?

    I read this regarding Dobson this morning by Paul Perillo,
    During Monday night's practice inside Gillette Stadium, Dobson tried to make a catch as he was running full speed toward the sideline. He staggered his steps trying to keep his feet in bounds and then had trouble slowing himself once he passed the area where the benches would normally be. He was unable to stop his momentum before he made contact with the track-like surface that rings the field, and once his cleats hit it he went down. Dobson got up slowly and jogged back toward the offense, but he appeared to be shaken up on the play. It's possible his absence on Tuesday was a result of that play, and we'll have to wait to see if the hiccup has any affect on the progress he's made thus far. On a positive note, Dobson did make an appearance in shorts and walked around the field about midway through the practice.

    rkarp,

     

    Anything about Tompkins today?  National sports media is already mentioning him.

     

    Thanks,

    For some reason, I really want Ras-I to make the team and challenge Dennard for that CB position.

    There are 32 reasons not to throw the deep ball against the New England Patriots this season, they all end in "Because Devin McCourty will INT it".

    Nice to see RKrap on his best behavior. Nice agenda-less reports.  Matches what I am getting as well for the most part.

     



    Wow. Really? Wow. 

     




    Have to agree with RKarp here--Very condescending and a know -it -all sound from Rusty-I second the WOW! Sounds like Russ is the GM of the team and this board?

    Great post, rkarp, thanks.

    Hope Dowling makes the team - and stays healthy! Hope TT doesn't make it. Waste of a roster spot IMO.

    I'm starting to get hopefull with the D. A lot of quality, and a lot of depth minus DT, where they could use another contributer. Could be the best Patriots D in many years.

    In response to rkarp's comment:

    I really cant tell. I think so far it has been a pitch and catch. Few more days until they get serious.  The young guys are very athletic, that is obvious. Remains to be seen how they look in "real practice"....last year that is when it was obvious Ocho was out of place.

    Taking a real early shot, yhe guy that LOOKS the worst imo is Jenkins. Hawkins to me looks very good. 




    Thanks for the first hand account I enjoy reading it. As I read it and digest it, I find it funny that within hours of you posting this, Hawkins was cut!
