    This speaks volumes about multiple topics covered ad nauseum on this forum. Liking the updates. The report about Brady and Tate connecting made me smile as did the report of Moss helping some of the younger receivers. I would really like to see something get done with him after the 2010 season is over.

    Co-sign. Can't understand how its a foregone conclusion that Moss is gone after 2010. If this team competes for a title and Brady and Moss retain their chemistry and put up similar #s to 2007 or 2009, all parties involved - Brady, Moss, the Patriots - would want to keep the band together.

    Again the PFW blog is ignored despite it having the best information and the longest column per practice.

    On a side note, these updates really get me pumped for training camp.

    From the PFW article:

    I'm curious to see which of these guys will do this on a regular basis. Interesting that Mesko, despite all signs pointing to him having a job locked up, puts in extra time.

    "Moss asked Tom Brady, who was also standing there, to pose as a defender while Moss showed Jenkins the proper technique."

    Typical Moss. Picks slow, not agile Brady to pose as a defender just to make himself look good in front of the rook!

    Well, if someone is going to screw up, better to be a rookie than a vet. When I read the previous comment from another link which just said 'offensive lineman', that brought a bit of concern that perhaps it was somebody that will be counted on if Mankins does not play, such as Connolly or Ohrnberger or Kaczur.

    As for Hernandez and Gronkowski, though they will be counted on much more than Welch and Wise will this season, it's unfortunate but not totally unexpected. It's not realistic to expect all these guys to get every single snap exactly right this quickly. It won't be easy but the Pats absolutely do need these two to step up and learn everything very quickly, however.

    Suffice it to say, I think Moss is wrong in his feelings on the team - note that he started making these comments originally before Wilfork was signed. His perception of the team has proven inaccurate - they just paid one of their stars. If we win SB 45, for instance, I think there is a huge chance that Moss will be back.

    You may be right, although Moss will look at the Mankins and Brady situations very closely, and his decision to switch agents in an effort to drum up maximum cash would seem (at least at first blush) to indicate that he's not going to play the "cheapest house in the neighborhood" game that the Patriots prefer.

    However, I think Moss saying it explains why people would think it, and that's what I was responding to.

    No one has accused Mesko of being a dummy (maybe a bit clumsy. . . . :D), and he probably knows Nick Folk went from All-Pro his rookie season to competing for a job this year.

    I, too, am glad to be reading non-Mankins threads. Thanks to the OP.

    Punter for the New England Patriots is not a tenured position. Ask Brooks Barnard ... :) Brooks Barnard - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
