Hello, and welcome to another edition of ‘The Patriot Way’, your number one source to New England Patriots news and analysis from around the web.
The Patriots are the best in the NFL in terms of getting the most bang for their buck.
New England is the second most valuable NFL team, behind only the Dallas Cowboys.
Bill Belichick spoke with the media on Tuesday, and gave some solid quotes on the specifics of football.
Tom Brady wants to play at least one half tomorrow night against Carolina. Here is one quote from Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston:
“Coach told us we’re going to get a lot of work. What that means, I don’t know. I don’t think anyone ever knows with him. But we’ll be prepared and ready to go for 60 minutes and hopefully it’s a good 60 minutes. We’ve had a couple doozies in the third preseason game lately. It would be nice to have a good one.”
Like us fans, cornerback Brandon Browner has been surprised by the amount of flags thrown thus far in the preseason.
“It was surprising how many flags they actually did throw. Some, I think, could be ticky-tack; there’s a lot of hand-fighting going on down the field with receivers and DBs all the time. They said they were going to do it and they did it. … It’s just a part of the game. As a cornerback, it will have me more focused and in-tune with hand position and things like that, to tighten up my craft.”
