MrsB’s July 29th PM Report

2008 TC picture with Tedy Bruschi I didn’t get home until after 9:00 from tonight’s practice because I had to pick my son up.  My house is a pit, I’ve yet to eat, and I have a headache so I need to make this one quick.  It was a gorgeous, comfortable summer night on the hill and the boys were back in full pads for a spirited practice after this morning’s walk through.

  • Biggest news: Rodney Harrison was back, fully suited up and jumping right in to practice.
  • Still no Matt Light, the rest of the PUPs, Clement, Redd, Sanders, Seymour or David Thomas, who left injured yesterday.
  • Zebras were on the field and a few flags were thrown out there.
  • Randy Moss continues to be in a league all his own. It must be discouraging to be a rookie corner going against him, as Wheatley knows! However, 22 did rob Moss of a TD in the EZ by knocking it away. He later celebrated with a chest bump with Meriweather and Wilhite.
  • One on one passing drills pitted RBs and TEs vs LBs in one field and DBs vs WR in the other and I was like a swivel head trying to catch action in both fields reacting to the “ahhhs” of the crowd.  I hate to admit it but Tedy was a few steps behind more than once tonight :-(  Watson looked good on the drill and of course, Moss was being Moss in the other field.
  • Chad Jackson dove and hauled in a nice Brady pass and looked better tonight than some of his other outings.
  • Sam Aiken looked sharp to me tonight and scored a TD from a Brady pass.
  • Bryant and Spann had picks with the latter being a tipped by Mayo.
  • First unit’s two minute drill stalled when Watson dropped a TD ball at the post when he hit the ground and when Wheatley defended successfully against Moss in the corner of the EZ.
  • Cassel to Moss over Wheatley later completed a two minute drill with a TD.
  • Running backs signed tonight with Maroney drawing the huge cheers second only to Moss who signed although it wasn’t his turn. (Brady hasn’t been signing daily this year as in the past.)

Tomorrow is a single afternoon session @ 2:30. Sorry there’s not much detail here but I’m beat and there’s still lots for me to do before I can sleep.  There are some more pictures up on my Flickr account, although I’ve yet to label and tag them.

MrsB’s Tuesday Morning Walk Through 07/29/08

Headed out with Big Al and Jake for the first of two sessions today and arrived a bit late but missed nothing.  The guys were dressed in just shorts and t-shirts for a walk through session that even the PUPpies could participate in. It wasn’t that crowded today and I’m sure fans who stayed home were thankful. Although, those that were there must have made out well with autographs if that was their bag.

  • I spotted PUPpies Harrison, Vrabel and Welker out there (who was stretching out with a trainer). Matt Light was not there and was likely getting treatment with the trainers inside.
  • Zebras were in the house.
  • When doing routes, the spread offense was Moss, Gaffney, Jackson and Watson.
  • WR, safeties and cornerbacks stayed on the field continuing to run through plays after most other positions had already left the field. They ended up signing.
  • Tedy B  was a media maven today doing a sit-down with Felger (probably for tonight’s show), a one on one with Massorati then was at the center of the huge group of cameras and microphones.
  • Tedy spotted Big Al when he waved to him so he came over and I got my annual hug and photo with Tedy. We chatted for a minute and I  wished him well for the upcoming season.
  • On the way out, we spotted the Bruschi Boys in line to emulate Dad’s moves at the Experience. :-)
  • I’m watching the video of the rule changes right now during Belichick’s press conference live stream. I’m sure that it will be archived for later viewing on patriots.com

I’ll be heading back out to tonight’s session later tonight and plan on taking advantage of the long break to get some things down around the house.
