Beautiful night, cool breeze and a large crowd. This will never rival Mrs. B, so no sense in pretending. Spotted Mankins right away so knew that the collective bargaining agreement was signed. The O linemen were in the far left corner and the media seemed to be focused on them with their camera's, initially thought it was due to Mankins, but closer look revealed Nate Solder who is the tallest O lineman. Good news, everybody is in. In an early drill Mankins and Solder were lined up on the left side against Haynesworth, Solder blocked Haynesworth who finished the play with an obvious hands to the face of Solder at the end of the play. Welcome to the NFL Nate Solder. After that interchange Haynesworth disapeared and saw him later laying on the ground, he and BB had a tete a tete on the field.. not sure what that is about, some rumors about an injury. Hope he was not screwing the pooch and whatever is going on is legitimate. Solder and Light alternated at left tackle. Ocho Cinco dropped a lot of balls. Meriweather tweaked his calf. Mankins looked mean and nasty throughout. BJGE looked quick. Gronkowski looked good, right now he is dominant. Hernandez worked out with the Wide Receiver Position Players.. not the tight ends. Guyton did not look good covering tight ends. Mallett looked raw, great arm.. but not that accurate. After practice Hernandez and Ocho Cinco worked on catching the ball with #12. Mr. Kraft was there in sneakers and jeans, but his shirt was pink with white collar not the traditional blue with white.. got a lot of shoutouts from the crowd. Tom Brady is clearly the fan favorite, and there is a whole new generation of very small pats fans all wearing #12 jerseys.. he will never have to buy a drink in this town. Towards the end a group of military in full uniform marched on the field, not sure of the significance as it was close to the end, but they got a standing O. Linebackers signed.. Very good night, with such a large group there is so much going on, difficult to digest it all.. tried to focus on our newer players.
