News Blitz 7/26: Belichick compares Darrelle Revis to Rodney Harrison
"As good as his physical skills are, I just think instinctively that he has a great anticipation of the passing game," said Belichick in the interview. "A lot of times he kind of runs routs before the receivers run them. He has that kind of anticipation."
Earlier that morning, Belichick also praised Jerod Mayo and his role on the defense. NFL.com's Around the League writer Kevin Patra says that Belichick looks at Mayo as an instrumental part to the Patriots defense.
"I think he means a lot to our team," Belichick said in his press conference. "He's really the guy that the team probably revolves around more than any other player.
On Thursday, Comcast SportsNet's Tom Curran and Mike Giardi shot a segment called 'What?! Mmm hmm' for CSN's weekly show, "Quick Slants." During the segment, the two reporters debated a series of topics ranging from Devin McCourty's contract situation to the the team's offensive production.
"Is that supposed to say top six? Because they're going to go through the roof," said Curran. "This is a team that was top three in points scored last year even with a bunch of clowns running out there walking around with 'hi, my name is' tags on their jerseys."
"Gronkowski said he’s preparing to play in the regular-season opener Sept. 7 at Miami, and he spends his days focused on getting to that point," wrote Young.
For more on Gronkowski's interview, Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald listed some of the highlights from the Q & A session.
On a slightly off topic note, ESPN's Stats & Information department came up with a list of ten "stats to know" about the 2014 New England Patriots. According to the article, Brady needs just one regular-season win to become the third-most winningest quarterback in NFL history. Brett Favre (186) and Peyton Manning (167) sit at No. 1 and No. 2 respectively.
