"Now this is just from me – but I think Randy’s a pro," the scout said. "He’s the consummate veteran player, the epitome of a pro. He knows how and when to take plays off, the difference is he catches a lot (crap) for it, where so many other guys don’t. He can see the difference from one play to the next, and when he can save it for the next rep.

"He’s tremendous. For all the big plays he makes, I don’t think a couple plays off should matter. A lot of guys take plays off."

So take all of that as you will.

Now, as for the other situation the Patriots are dealing with, regarding linebacker Adalius Thomas, old friend Asante Samuel weighed in, during a discussion with the well-respected Thomas George of AOL FanHouse.

"I think it's good he [Thomas] spoke up," the Eagles star said. "More up there should. It certainly got to be a place where I didn't want to be. I am happy to be gone. I am happy here. They know how to make you feel wanted and appreciated here, but it's not the way I found it over there.''

He did add this: "Neither one of us [Philadelphia and New England] is in it yet. One thing I did learn with the Patriots that I still believe in: let your play do your most talking.''

And now we're on to Buffalo week. Hard to imagine we'll have the same kind of intrigue that the last seven days brought.
