Dear mightypatriots ,
THANKS FOR BREAKING OUT YOUR TROLL MANTRA !
Normally I just punch up the ignore button ...
I actually dig the way you follow me around & break out your lonesome wail within minutes of my postings.
So don't worry ....
I won't be getting into any name-calling wars with you or copying your TROLL Photo and stalkin' u and re-posting it on your threads.
( though I admit it might be pretty funny if someone else did ) KEEP ON TROLLIN' BROTHER !
DON'T LET THE BAh sTARDS GET U DOWN .
Here's some more pics I took at the scrimmage(s).
( though admittedly not exactly action-packed ) Following the first 11 on 11 work between the Pats D and the Saints O , the D coaches gathered the players on the sidelines and discussed what went down .
( Not sure if you can tell by the players' body language but it wasn't their finest hour ...they did however improve as the day wore on ) Brady watches Brian Hoyer complete his reps in the far side red zone as Moss leads the first team unit back onto the field.
Wes Welker spins away from the D and scores !
Truth be told ~ full tilt tackling was not permitted .Note : Welker was on right side of pic ( cut off during download )
Brees eyeballs Colston cutting across the middle
( He actually ended up checking down to Dave Thomas out in the left flat ...
one of 4 straight completions he had to the former Pats TE )Note : Colston was on right side of pic ( cutoff during download
) BJGE carries the rock threw the right gap
The unheralded North and South runner could teach Larry Mo a thing or two about gaining positive yards .NOTE : BJGE was on right side of pic (cut off during download )
BB and Brady conferred after every completed offensive session , usually with Moss briefly joining in on the talks.
Jonathon Vilma at times was just as vocal as Brady
Brady spent a decent amount of time rapping with members of the D
Here he's talking with Tully Banta-Cain and Gary Guyton .
( I noticed Brady seemed to have an especially good repor with Mayo during the scrimmage ) Brees & Co. await their turn .
Unfortunately for Lynell Hamilton #30 , yesterday was the last full day he would spend on the Saints active roster as the Saints rb suffered a torn ACL in their scrimmage Weds. morning . Jahri Evans #73 ...the $tandard $etter at Guard for the Saints
. The one and only Freddy Taylor !
Taylor looks bigger in person than you'd think ...
Big , strong and constantly moving on the sidelines he's constantly offering up encouragement to his teamates ...great addition to the Patriots way !
( Torry Holt , though he didnt suit up , was also very vocal with his fellow Pats ) Gostkowski splits the uprights with zero seconds left on the clock !
After Brady had driven them down the field during the Pats last situational drive of the day , Belichick had the FG unit run onto the field to try and get a kick off with only seconds remaining
( 15 or 16 secs were on the clock by my count when BB hollored for them to get on the field )
NOTE : The kick was blasted high and true and sailed directly into the crowd of fans that were watching from the hillside . One lucky fan reached up and snared the falling kick ... It was Marquis Murrels heckler !
