    Solid athletic play by Price, solid.

    Thanks, Z.

    Agreed on Price, kid has it all physically as well as athletically.

    Thoughts on Solder?  Short timer in camp, got the start at LT and doesn't at all look out of place.  I know it's early, but wow that kid can move.

    Price, Fletcher and Ridley clearly stood out to me in the 1st half of the game. Fletcher looked quick and powerful. Price, amazing catch in the end zone on a ball that was thrown behind him. Good concentration holding on and keeping his feet in bounds. Ridley powerful and deceptively elusive. Nice short area quickness. Solder too looked liked he held down the left side well. All and all, nice work by those 4..many other mentions. Slater nice grab on the sideline, good ST play. he will be one to watch and see if BB hangs on to him. At this point, I think I would keep him.

    I only caught a few highlights (in a DC bar that had the Ravens game on), but I saw Fletcher come in hard at the the LOS and just crush the RB for no gain.  Looks good from what I can see--very excited!

    We already know that Gronk, Hernandez and McCourty are REALLY good players. So of course we are excited about them. I think it is more interesting to ask which young player who has yet to make an impact are you excited about (I would not inlcude Haynesworth or Chad O here because they are also proven). On that score I would suggest the following players: - Vereen - Price - Moore - Pryor - Smith Vereen may end up being a significant difference on O in the second half of the year. Price.... fingers crossed... Moore and/or Pryor could be surprises to many. Can Smith do the really great job Crumpler did last year? I would include the following except that I think they impact later - Dowling - Solder

    if vereen makes it on the field enough, i'd love to see what he can do as well.
    spikes doing good would not surprise me.
    but add vereen to price and dowling on my list i hope to be pleasantly surprised and excited by.

    In Response to Re: Young Patriot you are most exited about? : They have him taking reps there. That is exciting to me that they switched him and Mayo. Bedard's reasoning, which I like, is that Spikes playing there would free Mayo to use his speed to make plays on the ball.

    yes z, thats definitely a no brainer there.

    In Response to Re: Young Patriot you are most exited about? : Me too. I'm looking forward to seeing Mayo on the outside, Spikes playing inside. What really makes me giddy, is that the pass rush can come from anywhere and everywhere this year. We are not dependent on 1 sackmaster coming from 1 position to light up the opposing QB..If guys play to their potential, we are bringing the heat up the middle, from the end, from Mayo or Guyton on the outside, DB, etc. I hope BB uses this D to apply pressure early and often, take some calculated risks, etc.

    for this reason i hope we keep the 3 we just brought in., even if carter is a 1 trick pony

    I expect more great things from Gronk/McCourty/Hernandez/Spikes this year. Im most excited about Price. Has amazing speed, good size and should know the system rather well now. With Tate injured( I think ), its Price's time to show what he is made of. Being realistic, a 25 catch, 400 yard and 2-4 TD season would be awesome from Price as the #4. No way he beats out Welker/Ocho/Branch but I think he might beat out Tate and produce in this "spread the ball around" offense. Im going to be watching him every play he is in during the preseason, I want to see how he looks. Im also looking forward to watching Ryan Mallet play, I have low expectations seeing as he is a QB who missed OTA's and he probably hasn't digested half the playbook yet but the kid has amazing potential. Hopefully, he gets to play in all 4 pre-season games.

    price is all over tate in my opinion at this point.
    if we develop another returner from the squad, it might be time to release tate and use the spot for another player ie we will be carrying a lot of older d lineman, we could use the extra.
    i think tates hanging by a thread.
    if he doesnt improve, i dont know why you'd keep him past this year for sure.

    After watching last Night I'd have no problem changing my vote to Fletcher. I thought he was the one guy that stood out a little bit above everyone else. I'm not as worried about Linebacker depth as I was yesterday.

     I have to agree with you on this one. I think that the emergence of Dane Fletcher is going to shock folks around the league. Not only is he athletic he's extremely smart and it wouldn't surprise me to see him calling the defense at middle linebacker somewhere along the line this season. It still amazes me that this guy went undrafted.

    Hmm, that's a tough one. On account of the fact that the Pats 1st, 2nd, 3rd, & now 4th year players have NEVER won a playoff game. just sayin'

    New England just picked up a handful of vets, but also (as we know) has a large youth movement going on simultaneously. Of all the first and second year people on the squad, who are you most exited about after reading news from camp? Why?
    Posted by zbellino


    None of the above.  I say Solder - cuz he's gotta protect the blind side.

    Solder because his specialty is flattening people.
