Looks like practice jersey numbers have been switched over to the game jersey font. Yes, I notice things like this.
Welcome to part one of our Patriots Training Camp preview that will feature an in-depth look at each position on the roster and what we’ll be looking for in training camp along with our expectations going into the season.
Another Patriots season is upon us, here we go!
The New England Patriots’ offense underwent changes and injuries in 2013. With multiple weapons in their second seasons with Tom Brady, as well as their two top running backs entering contract years, the Pats’ attack is primed be better in 2014.
Tom Brady has gone through multiple phases of offense during his Patriots career. There was the efficiency years of 2001-2006, the Randy Moss years of 2007-2009, then the high-speed blitzkreig of 2010-2012 with Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, Deion Branch and Wes Welker.
Now Brady enters the twilight of his career with two highly-drafted young quarterbacks behind him. Brady should have a few more sure-fire seasons left in him, but what can we expect to see out of Ryan Mallett and Jimmy Garoppolo?
Our training camp preview series kicks off with the quarterbacks.
Tom Brady, New England Patriots
Tom Brady (QB) ranked 3rd on NFL’s Top 100 players of 2014.
Top 100 Players of 2014: Tom Brady
What better way to kickoff a Thursday that listening to TFB get some love from his fellow NFL players. It’s nice to hear people who actually play the game point out what makes Brady so good. You know, instead of, “he’s slipping because he wasn’t in the top 10 of some random stat” from the fanalysts.
As we’re just two weeks out from the opening of another training camp, it’s time to appreciate that we get to watch Brady play football for another season. It’s special and there won’t be many of these seasons left to enjoy it.
