Patriots Get More Bad Injury News, Sebastian Vollmer Headed to IR
Sebastian Vollmer is headed to IR for a balky shoulder that required surgery. Vollmer has been on PUP since training camp began because of a hip injury.
Most 53 projections of the last week already expected Vollmer & Lewis out. (Some did it to make space for some binkies so now they might get their wish - but not the way they'd like it). But still the expectations were they come back sooner than later.
Mason is a shock. With Kline reportedly...

Garoppolo, Blount Shine in Patriots Win Over Chicago
Jimmy Garoppolo played impressively on Thursday, completing 16 of 21 passes for 181 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions.
Disclaimer- For the first time in several years I didn't make it to a single training camp. I also didn't see the last pre season game because I was out of state. This is really the first time I'm getting to see the Pats first hand, so my observations might not be as accurate as I'd like...
Patriots Injuries Are Piling Up Quickly
The team wraps up the 3-day joint practices with the Bears today, But the injury bug, which so decimated the team a year ago, is raising its ugly head again
Again, all observations off the top of my head without benefit of replay, so please excuse any errors or misperception I may have made here.
A big portion of yesterday was devoted to offense installation, first with no huddle which Hogan appeared to have difficulty with. He had to be coached...

Quick Observations from the Patriots PS Win Over New Orleans
The Patriots opened the preseason with a 34-22 victory over the New Orleans Saints as the defense stepped up with three turnovers and played well overall.
Was at today’s TC session, and observations are off the top of my head, so please excuse any errors or possible misinterpretation of what happened, as there is naturally no way to review replay or look at the all-22.
First off, those thinking that we might go 4-0. Please get that out of your...
Lots to talk about here. Thought it deserved its own thread. If the OL blocks well and the Pats stay healthy overall then i don't see the Patriots losing the superbowl this year.
First and for most the bad news is the back up OT spot still is very shaky and it appears if no trade or signing...

Four Things To Watch For At Patriots Training Camp
Belichick and McDaniel will have to walk a fine line here. Garoppolo must be prepared to take the field against the Cardinals and run the offense smoothly
If the running game was not adequate even with Brady running the show, now that this BS suspension is confirmed James G may need some help so he doesn't have to throw a lot in his first 4 games.
I was surprised BB didn't addressed this in the draft, now it seems we're headed to take a look in...
