Patriots in need of special players - Framingham, MA - The MetroWest Daily News
This does concern me, but im refilling my koolaid as i type Maybe it was just my eyes failing, but it always seemed like Slater would only run straight ahead. A simple cut here, and there, and i think he couldve been long gone with his speed. Bad vision perhaps? Oh well, he was a rookie. We'll see what he can do this preseason
BB and O'Brien obviously thought they could get someone to replace Hobbs - my first choice is Maroney with Slater as his lead blocker. People who got down on Slater last season missed what he was doing as Hobbs' lead man and as a Gunner/Outside containment on the coverage units, the kid had a pretty good year. I think it's also worth noting that on his Kick Returns someone else got to be his lead blocker - it makes a difference.
im not real worried at all with our special teams, we have too many versatile athletes who are passionate and hunger to fret bout
tons of leaders as well, brady, faulk, light, mayo, bruschi, adalius, chung, sanders, seymour, etc!!!!! we have alot of special players
