Patriots.com News Blitz - 07/31/2009

In today's blitz, find out how the veterans view their head coach and learn more about Fred Taylor's outlook on his new situation.

Head Coach Bill Belichick has been labeled as a "no-nonsense, attention to detail" leader for the Patriots. While some players are willing to concede the truth behind this description, they also reveal a different side of the coach.

WR Wes Welkeris quoted in a *Boston Herald *article as saying, "You just have to make sure you do those things, and he trusts you, and things are usually a lot smoother with him."

Another veteran that spoke to the media after the first practice of training camp was RB Fred Taylor. In addition to praising his head coach, Taylor talked about his experience and how he plans to use his knowledge to help improve this team.

"I've been around for a while,'' Taylor said to the Boston Globe. "I've seen a lot. And only through my experiences is when I speak. I don't want to mislead anyone, but if I see someone slacking or not doing the right things, I'll kind of pull them to the side and say, hey, I don't think that will be for the better of the team. I try not to overstep my boundaries.''
