I am pleased to see the return of the screen play. Seemed to be practicing it heavy today.
Nice. RB screen specifically?
With Ridley earning more snaps I guess the screen makes sense.
(can you also tell me who autographs at the end of the practice)
Glad to hear, I love screens more than anything but my momma!
Both RB and WR not sure I have seen them to the TE yet but I am sure there will be plenty.
Sorry don't stick around for the autographs.
JOSH IS BACK; Josh is truly back!
Amen to that !
BOB didn't seem to know what a screen was.
I'm thinking the current stable of RBs who are all equally adept in the running and passing games is no coincidence, eh?
Tossing a TE screen to GRONK or Hernandez would be devastating to opposing defenses..
Or tossing it to Welker with Gronk and Hernandez out front..
I've masturbated to a screen play. True story
Wait until they sign the ol man #33 back again. I think Kev has one more year in him. Don't think he was fully over the knee injury last year and came back too early.
Ridley, Vereen, Woodhead and Faulk with Bolden on the PS.
Vereen this year is going to catch as many as Kevin Turner used to, except Vereen is going to take those catches to the end zone.
Meanwhile, Lloyd is going to open up the middle of the field for Welker, Gronk, Hernandez.
Woodhead is going to run for 800 yards on draws.
I don't see it, and I think that Faulk would be on the roster by now if it were likely. Maybe he'll be on the emergency telephone list if Woodhead goes down.
Curran, Howe and Bedard all had positive things to say about Bolden today, BTW, and about Vereen's pass catching. From Curran:

Nice to hear, especially about Bolden. A faster, more explosive version of BJGE with some pass-catching and return ability would be a terrific addition to the RB group.
The problem is they turned it into a ridiculous 15 yard lateral pass to a cutting Julian Edelman, who would either (a) drop it, (b) bat in the air for an interception, or (c), make the catch and fall down.
And I maturbated to this post.
Beat that...errr...no pun intended.
Tight. End. Screen.

I was not too pleased that they seemed to get away from it after Josh left. It's a great tool in the tool box.
You know if you call that play successfully it's great to see the big shot Osi's and Tucks suck wind as they put on the brakes and head in the opposite direction, only to burn all that oxygen to come up empty.
Too bad I guess. I feel for them already.
Were you at the game?
Abso-effing-lootly, if Kevin was going to get a call it would have been the moment Addai walked out the door.
I hope I'm wrong, but I'm hardly ever wrong. It's a character flaw of mine I guess.
Good news about Bolden. He fits so well with the other personnel IMO. He's got some power and nastiness.
Brandon Bolden. Not sure i'd suggest this in the NFL, but hurdling seems to be the craze these days, so why not?

I hate that move...that's a sprained ankle(at best) waiting to happen.
You'll learn to f'n love it if it's into the end zone to take the lead with 12 seconds left on the clock in New Orleans this February.
Excited to see Bolden today. His talent level is unusually high for a UDFA. (5'11 220 lbs, pass catching ability, quick, and had a hell of a junior year in the SEC with a 6.0 ypc on a horrible Ole Miss team) He has all the things to be an all around back, something BJGE lacked in speed and pass catching.
Except, of course, that said stable was acquired before McDaniels returned, but point taken.
Which, of course, begs the question of how the **** he went undrafted, especially after BJGE's relative success with the Patriots. [Not saying he should have been a second-rounder or anything, but why not a sixth- or seventh-rounder?]
Injuries+a team suspension is not a recipe to be drafted, though he should of been a late round flier for someone.
If he came out his junior year he may of been drafted before Ridley.
I will be at camp today. It will be interesting to see this Bolden kid and what he can do.
