The Patriots hit the field on Gillette for their last home preseason game tonight as they’ll take on the World Champion Philadelphia Eagles in Week 2 of the preseason. The […]
McCourty is an excellent free safety and makes all the calls for the secondary as the quarterback back there and he’s a team captain and a leader.
He’s outstanding in run support, filling the holes quickly and a violent, punishing hitter in the trenches. He led the team with 74 tackles, (43 solos) and seven passes defensed with three interceptions.
LB Shea McClellin, who had been on IR since the end of preseason, had suffered a setback in his return and now he too will be likely lost for the season.

After a couple of spirited and tough practices against the Texans this week in West Virginia, the teams meet in a preseason game before doing it for real in Week 3 in Foxboro. Here are some of the things we’ll be watching for.
This spring the team had the smarts to bring back safety Duron Harmon. The re-signing of the third starter because he plays so many snaps was a win/win.

The Patriots drafted Harmon in the 3rd Round, 91st overall in the 2013 Draft. His role has steadily evolved and he’s now a trusted member of the defense.
McCourty is the quarterback of the secondary, a co-captain of the team and the glue that holds everything together on the backend.
The 6’0, 200-pound Ohio State product is as tough as they come, being a former member of the US National Rugby Team. While a Buckeye, his prowess on kickoffs is stuff of legend as he was compared to “a heat seeking missile.”
Wilson has made his mark as a reserve, playing mostly dime linebacker in the ‘Big Nickle’ sub-packages or on Special Teams.
In the Pats big nickel, they bring in an extra safety (Duron Harmon) to play an extra defensive back to go along with Chung and Devin McCourty.
The Patriots defense is still very much a work in progress after three games. But with a nice blend of youth and experience, the unit will improve each week
