    A few things that stood out to me:

    - Both links had good things to say about Butler. The Patriots link that said Butler, Chung, and Edelman had great offseasons is a VERY good sign to me. If all three of those players have good seasons, the Pats will instantly improve in a couple areas of weakness from last year (pass defense, and depth at WR).

    - It's probably all just cliche-speak, but something about the way the offensive coaches quotes were worded gave me a good feeling. Sometimes we forget that young coaches can progress and get better just as much as players can, and I think O'Brien seems to be maturing into the role. He clearly has the respect of the rest of the staff at least.

    - Hearing that Welker took a boot to the ball made me cringe. That just has Bill Gramatica written all over it...

    Um, wouldn't that put a bunch of pressure on his ACL? Should him attempting kicks be viewed a really good news?

    There is another article out there that says this exact thing; it shows someone who clearly isn't worried about putting pressure on the knee.

    I'm sure it's a good sign, but it still makes me nervous. Last thing we need is him tweaking it doing something silly. But I'm probably just being paranoid. If he feels it's ok, kick away my good sir.

    Seems there has been praise for Butler after each day of mini-camps. It would be HUGE if he could step in and perform at a high level this year. Ditto for Chung (who to be fair did pretty well with the reps he did get last year, IMO).

    Also have to like the fact that Gronk and The Pot Head are getting lots of time in with Tf'nB, they could be a MASSIVE addition to the attack, whether its Gronk/Crumpler crushing the jets d-line/Lb's in the run game, or Gronk/Hernandez torching the Indy secondary...ok I guess I'm getting ahead of myself here... In any case, like the real possibility of 3-4 rooks/2nd year guys having a real impact for this team this year (Butler, Chung, Hernandez, Tate/Price, and that excludes the LB/DL/OL situation).

    This certainly put a smile on my face, being that I'm putting a lot of eggs in his basket in the passing game this season...

    Side note: Is this Ron Brace on the left hand side of this pic? If so, it looks as if he's lost some weight.

    I keep hearing great stuff about Rookie TE Hernandez, what about the Gronk? Like any camps we've had you always here about this certain player at a position making good progress, then when the season starts its the other guy that makes a splash. Hope the Gronk has the last laugh!

    Also looks as if he doesn't know what day it is.

    Gronk is the prototypical TE. Hand in the dirt guy who wont mind getting his hands on a guy and blocking, but will be a dangerous guy if he gets up the seam and matched up on a LB.

    Hernandez is more of a Dallas Clark, will run block, but rarely block on passing plays...

    I used to have that look on my face during the dog days of summer as well. The fact that he's lost some weight means more to me.

    That's Darryl Richard because he's number 90. Brace is 97.

    This question just occurred to me since Price's has fallen behind the learning curve because of missing OTA's has been mentioned several times. Did the same thing happen to Julian Edelman LAST season. He also went to college in OH? Just wondering.

    Seems it's just OSU, and they're changing.

    It isn't a matter of going to school in the state of Ohio; it is a matter of what particular school they went to, it has to be on the quarter system.
