That's always the issue. By way of extreme example, how well did the Bears' offense do in practice in '85.If the offense was throwing all over the defense that's not good either though.
To that point, they are the only ones I've seen who have been "meh" on Mac's performance this training camp, even Mike who's generally really high on him. Obviously not a reason for concern, but still, a lot more substance in their critique (not getting the ball out in time, scrambling around too often, deep throws sometimes arrive too late, most of redzone success on jump balls and wide open pick plays) than the usual "Mac was 16/19 in the competitive portion of practice" you generally read from the beat these days.As has been true for literal decades, the best and most balanced, and often critical, coverage you’ll find of the patriots is on patriots.com.
Former Patriots lineman Rich Ohrnberger found himself in a predicament and knew he was going to be late for practice because he overslept.
“I wake up, my phone died overnight, and I realize I’m waking up to the sound of birds chirping and not my alarm going off,” Ohrnberger said on his radio show, “The Hartman & Rich O Show." “I am frantic. I don’t even bother looking at the clock, I know I’m late.”
But instead of fessing up and fearful of being released, Ohrnberger, who was drafted by the Patriots in fourth round of the 2009 NFL draft and played there until 2011, did what any non-rational human would do: He decided to have a little fender-bender.
“I see a church van in front of me that’s all dinged up and it’s got the black smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe and I’m like, ‘I’m gonna hit this car,'" Ohrnberger says. "It’s better to pay the insurance than embarrass myself by being late for a Patriots team meeting.”
As others have stated elsewhere, if these new helmets help, then why are they only being employed during a few TC practices?View attachment 53954
Noticing lots of pics with these helmets. They are comically large, but if they help then I'm glad to see some new tech being employed.
I mean, a $20 bump isn't going to keep me from going to my preferred P11 location, but damn.It was 30 the past few years. Everything used to be $40 on both sides until they started doing different pricing for stadium side vs 10/11. Stadium side the past few years was 60 and 10/11 was $30.
