    Bill Belichick spoke extensively today about the logistics and what to expect this week.

    I think this is a great idea. We have a lot of youth on both sides of the ball and there's not a better team to practice with/learn from right now than the Saints.

    Love the Patriots, but the Saints have the momentum going into it. Drew is nasty. Hope Brady is up to the challenge

    The game is meaningless. Sure you try to win, but neither of these teams will look the same in the regular season.

    Great thing about this type of competition is that it's full pads and probably full contact except for the QB's and select players (e.g., Welker). Great way for the rookies to get immersed, while protecting certain players, and developing chemistry all at the same time.

    Hello Pats Fans!!

    Saints Fan here (I come in peace):D

    Us Saints Fans are pretty amped about the up coming joint practice and pre-season game against that Pats. We feel it would be good to break the monotony of practicing against each other, plus as you know its get reeeeally hot down here and Im sure the guys could use a break from the tropical heat.

    I am totally looking forward to it. I think Bill Belichick is one of if not the best coach in the league. I love our Brees but he still has a ways to go to catch up to Brady. Sean Payton had built our team using the model you guys use, as far as having depth at skill positions, and building your team through all phases (draft, FA, UDFA, and trades).

    Anyways, I wanted to know if any of you guys will be there to post observations of the practice. A lot of us fans would like to get different view points on how our team if performing. Also, do you guys know the twitters for your different beat writers that cover the Pats? We football fans are dying for some football and ready to eat up any info we can get. :singing:

    A lot of fans do practice observations here and I'm sure there will be more than a few that will make observations on how the Saints look as well as the Pats. You can also check out this website: Official Patriots Football Weekly Blog. That's the Patriots Football Weekly blog which has, IMO, the best training camp breakdown of the Pats. If the Saints are practicing with them, then they'll also be doing observations of your boys as well. Oh, and...

    What is it about Saints fans and being overwhelmingly cool? No complaints from me, definitely a welcome break from Jets trolls.

    I'm definitely looking forward to the scrimmages, for all the reasons that have already been mentioned but also because it will give Bill O'Brien and whoever's calling the plays on D some great practice work against some of the best playcallers in the league.

    Yeah, I agree; maybe it's a southern-hospitality thing. Last year the best people to interact with were the Saints and Falcons fans in the weeks leading up to those two games. For some reason I don't expect things to be on that same level when the schedule rotation results in the Pats playing the NFC East teams next year.

    Shoot man, none of us Saints fans ever had a problem with the Patriots. It's the Cowboys, Vikings, and Falcons I cant stand. Their fans are just whiny and classless. I met some Pats fans on Bourbon St. after the MNF game last year, and we had a blast. I bought them a few drinks.

    Anyway, how is Aarron Hernandez looking in camp so far? I was hoping we drafted him but we wound up taking the TE Jimmy Graham in the 3rd, which has worked out well so far. But I am just interested in Hernandez and how he is making out. I had early feelings that he would be a play maker.

    They had to wait a long time for their shot at glory so that made their Football culture humble and mature even if the actual poster is a young person.

    Most of the training camp reports have been very positive. Obviously rookies are going to have their learning curve, but we're all looking forward to watching him play in a real (okay, pre-season) game. Apparently they've had him in the WR group as well as the TE group for coaching and drills, which would make sense in order to take advantage of his skills and talents.

    By all accounts, Hernandez has looked great so far, and he and Brady are developing some real chemistry. I'm tempering my expectations, him being a rookie and all, but in the next couple years I'm really optimistic there.

    How's Patrick Robinson looking for you guys? Reports on McCourty have been pretty much as expected (nothing alarming, nothing amazing), and it'll be curious to follow the career trajectories of McCourty, Robinson, and Kyle Wilson over the next couple of years. Your offense is so loaded, the idea of even getting an upgrade at nickel back on your defense seems pretty filthy.
