Maybe I was wrong about Roach. Looks like he's starting to make some strides. http://www.patriots.com/news/index.cfm?ac=latestnewsdetail&pid=20413&pcid=44 WhoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Hot: Freddie Roach Ã¢â‚¬â€œ One week after landing on the downswing, Roach is starting to make an impact. We canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be too quick to throw a player aside just because he doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t look good as soon as camp starts. Roach looked lost early on but heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s starting to pick things up and is rising up the depth chart. He could be one of those Patriot-kind of players. Someone who doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t blaze a great 40-time but understands the game of football and makes plays on the field. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a punishing tackler at the point of attack, as a lot of the Patriots ball carriers are finding out and he also displayed some nice coverage skills by picking off a Todd Mortensen pass in the afternoon practice. After not getting many reps early in camp, Roach has done a complete 360. I would say no player has come as far in training camp as Roach has. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s gone from fighting for a job on the practice squad to battling for a spot on the final roster. WhoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Not: Wesley Britt Ã¢â‚¬â€œ While Roach is moving up the depth chart, it appears Britt is heading in the opposite direction. At mini-camp and the start of training camp, Britt was seeing a lot of time at right tackle with the first-team offense but thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s changed of late. Brandon Gorin and rookie Ryan OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Callaghan have been splitting reps with the first-team, followed by Britt. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hard to pinpoint what coaches are thinking and how they see the team shaping up but one would have to believe that itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not good news for a player to be getting less and less reps as camp goes on. Britt will have to play well in the upcoming preseason games because from the little IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve seen of him, the team may have found themselves a keeper in OÃ¢â‚¬â„¢Callaghan. Play of the Practice Ã¢â‚¬â€œ The Patriots didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t do a lot in the afternoon session but Cassel fired some nice bullets out of his machine gun of an arm. On one play Keron Henry ran an out on Ellis Hobbs and Cassel fired a dart that sailed a little high. Henry extended and pulled the ball down in front of Hobbs, drawing cheers from the crowd. The only bad thing about the play is Hobbs Ã¢â‚¬â€œ sporting a No. 21 DeAngelo Hall scout team jersey Ã¢â‚¬â€œ is doing little in camp to remind anyone of the Falcons Pro Bowl cornerback.
