Christopher Price
08/06/2012 - 12:04am

FOXBORO -- Stevan Ridley knows what’s going on, so when you ask him how badly he wants to be the Patriots’ No. 1 running back, he smiles. “Oh, man -- I think that’s every little kid’s dream, you know what I mean? I’m going to say pretty bad,” he said after practice on Sunday.
Christopher Price

FOXBORO -- Good news for Patriots fans: Even after three days of training camp, it’s easy to see that once you get beyond the number, there’s no comparison between Brandon Lloyd and Chad Ochocinco.

No former Patriot-turned-analyst has been more inclined to put his old team on blast than Rodney Harrison.
Christopher Price
06/24/2012 - 3:15pm
For a team that went 13-3 and made a fifth Super Bowl appearance in 11 seasons, the Patriots will enter training camp in 2012 with a surprising number of options at several positions.

Last week, we presented 10 things we learned about the Patriots this spring. Consider this -- an absurdly early look at what the 53-man roster might looks like -- a companion piece is based on notes from the spring sessions.
Christopher Price

With the spring sessions now complete, a clearer picture of the 2012 Patriots is starting to materialize. With that in mind, here are 10 things we learned about the Patriots over the last month, a stretch that has included rookie minicamp, organized team activities and mandatory, full-squad minicamp.

We are just past the midway point of the NFL offseason, and with the major team-building events (the draft, free agency) already come and gone, the Patriots still have questions to deal with between now and the start of the 2012 regular season.

PEABODY -- And on the fifth day, Wes Welker returned to square one.
Christopher Price
05/07/2012 - 11:15pm
FOXBORO -- Cross another one off the list.
Christopher Price
05/06/2012 - 11:35pm
If you’re a left tackle, the more anonymous you are, the better. If you’re doing your job, you never want anyone to say anything. Usually, the only time a left tackle's name is mentioned is when he gets his quarterback demolished. Like a baseball umpire, if no one mentions your name, you’re probably doing your job correctly.
Christopher Price
05/06/2012 - 4:08pm
The Patriots have a history of looking past the combine and going after some unheralded college talent.
