    Didn't see any discussion about it, kind of bored of discussing the Jets.

    Just a few links I've found so far:

    BostonHerald.com - Blogs: Rap Sheet Blog Archive What happened at the Patriots training camp? Day 15, Session 1 (Falcons edition)

    Also several posts here: Official Patriots Football Weekly Blog

    In a running summation:

    1.) It appears Wilhite still cannot play the ball in the air, causing BB to lose his ****.

    2.) Burgess showed some pass rushing moves.

    3.) Wilfork seems to be assuming a leadership mantle on defense

    4.) Ron Brace looks quick with a good burst

    Oh, and Spikes continues to display his badassery:

    Good to hear positive things about Brace and Burgess. Both good be important role players if they're up to snuff.

    Wilhite struggling on deep balls is discouraging, but I'm hoping we don't see him covering deep receivers very often. If he's a dime corner covering slot receivers I think he may have the quickness to keep up. If we're forced to use him outside again this year, he may not have improved his ball skills enough to be effective.

    Scary thought: imagine if Spikes actually was reining it in on that play. . . . :eek:

    Best twit of the day was a two parter. Part two is the bomb. Vince is goin' old school. Sounds like something one of the old backerhood brothers or Rodney would have said...

    These two statements will stay in my head all day long, and may cause me to laugh aloud at random times.

    Spikes and Meriweather in particular earn the Prototype Patriot award by being named Brandon and having dreadlocks.

    That's one thing I've noticed.. how many players on the D have dreadlocks. This unique phenomenon is dying for a nickname.

    Nice to see "Brace" and "quick" in the same sentence without any negative words in between.

    I am glad Brace is getting good reviews. I think the guy gets too much crap for missing the early part of camp when everyone just assumed he was held out for conditioning. Disapointed to see Cunningham didn't make the trip. Looks like Whilhite is on his way out the door. Good to see the Pats overall look sharp vs the Falcons in practice.

    Wilhite's struggles bring to mind the question of Kyle Arrington playing actual CB on defense. Did anyone notice him, good or bad, during the Saints game? I know he played some with the 2's or 3's, but didn't notice anything one way or another.

    I thought Wheatley looked decent the few times I noticed him, so without Wilhite we'd still have 4 CB who can play situationally, but I'd feel better with a 5th (be it Wilhite or Arrington) in case of the inevitable injury.

    Its not like I was out there during TC trying to get a read on Kyle as a corner but I recall several plays being made and then realizing it was him and not standing out for negative plays like the positive ones did. But certainly not recalling bad plays and remembering some good ones is not a legit scouting report.

    It's a tidbit and I appreciate it nonetheless. Either way I'm hoping we don't have to use the 5th CB very often, as I believe we can use some of our safeties as the 5th or 6th DB on necessary downs. If we're down to Wilhite/Wheatley/Arrington (whoever the 5th is), it probably means we're a bit banged up back there.
