New England Patriots football is oh so close.
Yesterday the team held their first joint practice with the Washington Redskins, who they face on Thursday in their first preseason contest of the year. Just about everything I heard coming out of Richmond, Virginia yesterday was positive (regarding the Pats), and it is getting me even more excited for what they can bring to the table throughout the 2014 season.
Obviously given that it was just a practice, we have to be careful not to overreact. So these “takeaways” are really just the observations that I felt were the most notable. We will learn a hell of a lot more about this team as we move through the preseason, as they get more and more comfortable in game action.
