So I took the day off from work today and was able to get to the training facility and watch the practice, I'm going to post a few thoughts on what I was able so see and my thoughts especially for players I was watching.
Offense on a whole looked good even with out Gronk, Brady was sharp , Edelman made nice catches though the best catch of the day I would say was KT over the middle about 25 yards downfield where Brady's toss was off a bit KT went up hauled it in, had his legs taken out from under him but held on to the ball.
Defensively, they looked to be legit, though 1 play saw McCourtey blow the coverage and Revis didn't have time to back track to that coverage, so a 20 yard catch was made(to the delight of the Fans who then got on Revis, but from my perspective, it looked like over / under coverage where McCourtey just didn't respond quickly enough.
Individuals from what I saw,
Offensive - Mallet was sharp today on his short to middle passes, his long ball missed when he threw, (this was on the other practice field so I couldn't get a good eye on things, I was using my binoculars). Jimmy G, had a bad , though I'm not holding on him to be a star this year I think he is just learning and wont be ready to help until next. KT looked impressive and Boyce looked fast.
Defensive - Very encouraged what I saw from Big Vince he held his own on all the Drills had the push up the middle on them, though I wanted to see more during the Red off / Blue Def but it seemed each time Vince was in there they passed the ball and only ran when he was not on the field. Overall I was very impressed with the first Unit, second Unit was shaky, but I'm guessing that was more of a "not having the cohesiveness that the first team has.)
Overall I feel I was very lucky to have had a chance to see my Pats practice where I live now, since I've been out of MA for 10 years and thought I would never had this type of opertuinety again. If anyone from the Organization comes to the boards here, just want to say thanks for coming down and I hope to see you again next year.
