Ventured up yesterday PM with a couple of friends, weather was bearable with some cooling showers... -Big crowds, thinned out somewhat after the day camps left.. -Seemed like a lot of work on special teams and red zone offense -Edelman, Price and Welker are fielding punts.. Edelman looks intense and very quick -Buddy Farnham played some defensive backfield, can you spell versatile -Ridley and Price look impressive, Ridley is quick and looks strong. -Mallett looks like he is starting to get this whole thing. -BJGE looks solid. -Hernandez lined up at TE, last week when was there he was with WR's, he and Smith looked impressive, Yeatman was also noticeable. -when Solder and Vollmer stand together they are very tall. Solder looks like he is getting it, but hard to tell in this controlled situation. Really good to see Mankins in the fold, he plays mean. -the linebacker rotation is difficult to follow, sometimes it is Fletcher and Mayo in the middle.. one time noted that Mayo was on the outside. -the D line rotations are also difficult to follow, as there are so many d linemen and they are moving people in and out. There are so many new numbers, spend as much putting on glasses and looking at the daily roster than watching the play.. so after a while just watched. Good day.. the rain held off, not too hot, about 3 hours of watching Patriots practice..
