Wednesday 8/8/07 PM

Home from the final session of the week and due to some situations beyond my control, I really have to just get this one out quickly so it’ll be bare bones.

  • Practice took place in full pads with the usual boys in red. It was one of the least crowded nights and by the end of practice it was quite comfortable on the hill with a nice breeze.
  • PUPpies were MIA as were Moss, K. Brady, Watson, Yates and Hawkins. Jarvis Green was back in the mix.
  • Newbie Notes: Dante Wesley is big and looks more like a linebacker than a DB. A mystery man in white wearing 82 was on the field and even scored a TD from Cassel during Red Zone work. Turns out it’s Marcellus Rivers, a new TE acquisition.
  • Rookie Slip and Slide (running and sliding on wet grass while vets water them down) took place in the back corner of the far field right after the stretch period instead of at the end of practice so they practiced in muddy, wet uniforms and stood out for sure.
  • Tonight was another night filled with situational football focusing on red zone work.
  • My ND loving son, Jake, was happy to see Mike Richardson get a pick tonight. Corey Mays stole one from Quinton Smith in the EZ as they both had their hands on a Guitierrez pass, fell to the ground and he wrestled it away. Willie Andrews also picked Brady after a tip.
  • Gaffney continues to catch just about everything in sight making a great TD grab from Cassel in the endzone covered by Hobbs and another diving sideline catch covered by Dante Wesley.
  • Wes Welker made a nice over the shoulder catch being covered by Wilson and Hobbs.
  • Sammy Morris made a sweet one handed grab from Brady.
  • Kelley Washington made some catches tonight but also earned a lap at one point.
  • Gostkowski nailed all 8 of his field goals tonight.
  • Linebackers signed and Lonie’s biggest sign-bearing fan got her hug and an autograph tonight.

The team travels out tomorrow and plays in Tampa Bay Friday night at 7:30. You know I’ll be tuned it for sure! The final public practices are Tuesday and Wednesday.

I’m glad to hear that Gaffney has come on so strong in this camp. I was hoping that his flare of productivity at the end of last season was not a fluke. Seems like it’s not.

Michael Richardson had two picks.

This is the first year that I have had the opportunity to

Will you be podcasting the games that you attend ? Best
of wishes! Geo H

Brownfan80: Gaffney is making a real effort to be seen and is fighting for that roster spot. He just may beat out the veteran Washington yet.

Geo H: I’ve been podcasting weekly since July 2005 so yes, I plan on continuing. Glad you are enjoying them and thanks for listening. It’s nice to have new listeners on board. Go Pats!!

Mike,

I asked my son about Richardson’s pick(s) because I thought he got two but he wasn’t sure and I wasn’t positive about it . Thanks for the clarification.

I, too, am happy to hear Gaffney fighting so hard for the final roster spot and I think he may beat out Washington for it. I am also excited about the acquisition of Marcellus Rivers seeing as the TE’s in camp has been lacking due to injuries. I’m waiting to see he works his way in. Thanks for the mention about me getting that hug from Lonie. Needless to say after being there 7 times I was a very happy girl. :)
