I know it has only been a few days of practices and one can hardly glean anything truly groundbreaking (positive or negative) about anything at this point. However, anything positive that one hears/reads about is still cause for optimism, and it puts a smile on my face. I can't help but feel very good about some of the things that are being said about individual players. Specifically, I read two very interesting little tidbits about Leigh Bodden that make me feel that, barring anything catastrophic, the Patriots should have one of the best CB tandems in the league. He seems to be rebounding very well and the reports earlier in the offseason seem to have been very accurate in regards to how well his rehab went. Bodden/McCourty is what we were all excited about before losing Bodden to injury. Our secondary looks like it could be really good this year as a whole. I'm very excited thus far.
