Sorry to pick on you Shalise – but you do know the whole world can see these Tweets, right?
The “black cloud” has arrived – Patriots training camp opens this morning, and with it, another long work cycle for the media covering the team. I do understand the sentiment above – the start of camp means a lot of six and seven-day work weeks from now until January – but I still don’t think it is wise to describe it as a “black cloud” hanging over you.
With the start of training camp, I feel it is appropriate to turn to our Patriots Daily Senior Foreign Correspondent Scott A Benson, who weighs in with The Boys of Late Summer – A Primer.
Time to spot players who can get it done – I picked on Shalise a little above, but I did enjoy her breakdown today of the younger players who need to step it up this season.

So these aren’t lines meant to stir up the fan base and generate clicks and comments?
Today, the grass looks great, the locker room smells great, the players are great and the kiddie corps of assistant coaches Bill Belichick has surrounded himself with are budding geniuses, not the underpaid lab assistants many of them appear to be.
Bill Belichick was a genius once, when the players in the photos were still active.
Randy Moss has caught a lot of balls in three years, but not the long one the Pats needed most against the Giants at the end of Super Bowl XLII. The evidence of past performance suggests that Branch would have caught it in that situation, but Moss never will.
Right. It’s just the imagination of a “delightfully thin-skinned”* fan base. Carry on.
