The media reports on Laurence Maroney's reaction to criticism, a Broncos defender speaks highly of Randy Moss, find out who didn't practice Wednesday, read how Mike Wright changed, rookie Julian Edelman is discussed and learn which jersey the team will sport come Sunday.

With the running back situation at capacity entering the season, it was unknown who'd become the team's feature back. Many believed RB Laurence Maroney would step up, especially after an injury-shortened 2008 campaign, though it hasn't panned out. Recently, fans have criticized Maroney and he understands their expectations. "I look at it as they want me to do good and they expect more from me, and that's basically what they're letting me know. They expect more, and I have to give them more," Maroney said according to the Boston Globe.

Two NFL veterans will match up Sunday in Broncos CB Champ Bailey and Patriots WR Randy Moss. Often recognized as the pinnacle of corner backs, Bailey has a tall task in covering Moss and is looking forward to the challenge. "He has that deceptive speed. You know he's fast, but then he doesn't run fast, and then all of a sudden he's top speed. He's just a dangerous guy. I look forward to that match up because if you can come out playing well against him, you know you're doing good things," Bailey said according to the Boston Herald. Bailey added Moss is one of the best he has ever seen play the game.
