Patriots blog - Reiss' Pieces - Boston.com Mike had a nice breakdown of who was on the core special teams KO, Punt, KR, and PR. these were the 4 guys on all 4 units above. S Matthew Slater S Brandon McGowan LB Eric Alexander WR Sam Aiken When you add Chung, Ventrone, and Edelman to this list it would seems some of our key STs guys are all of similar mold except Alexander. Chung looking good on STs and the presence of McGowan on all four units IMO cant be a good thing for Slater as they are all listed Safeties and McGowan and Chung are the better Safeties. I find it interesting Ventrone isnt on all four but maybe that was just to get a look at others. This IMO is heating up as a real interesting battle. I think we all would have ignored Alexander saying the others are better but don't forget Izzo is gone and Alexander is probably the best STs player from the LB group maybe Churchoo (i learned how to pronounce it and forgot how to spell it) but I haven't seen enough. Maybe they are moving to some smaller quicker guys without the wedge.
