After practice yesterday, QB Tom Brady took time to speak with the media and answer an abundant amount of questions.
The trio of Brady, WR Randy Moss, and WR Wes Welkerare together for their second here and this has the veteran quarterback feeling pretty good.
"Those guys can adjust because they know the signals and routes. They know how we want to run. They know the techniques of the defensive backs. I feel like from Day 1 we were way ahead of last year. I hope that shows up when we start playing the regular season." said Brady to the **Boston Globe**.
The *Boston Herald *asked Brady how he felt about this year's offensive line and if he had any worries for the season:
“No. I don’t have any,” he said. “I know they’re working hard to get back. I know the guys we have in there, we have a lot of confidence in. They’re guys who have played. Billy (Yates) has played. Wes (Britt) has played. (Nick) Kaczur’s played. They’re going to be fine.”
Another reason Brady was feeling good after practice was because the team was a awarded a rare night off. This usually never happens but thanks to 6-2 325 NTVince Wilfork'sball handling skills the team got a chance to relax.
“Nothing tonight. Everyone can go home and sleep in their own bed,” a happy Tom Brady told the Herald. “Vince has been our go-to guy for the last few years. He had two balls in his hands, so he had to catch it.”
Finally, with offseason depleting the secondary and training camp injuries to new players such as S/LB Tank Williams, The Globeprovides insight on a veteran Safety that could be of consideration for the Patriots.
S John Lynch could be used much like Junior Seauwas; as another veteran player for younger players to learn from.
"Leadership is the main word that comes to mind when I think about John," said Patriots reserve cornerback Jeff Shoateto The Globe, who spent time on the Broncos' roster and practice squad from 2004-07.
