If it’s Monday, it must be time for another edition of roster reset. This is the third shot at predicting who will make the Patriots’ 53-man roster.
Christopher Price

In the third preseason game of 2010, the Patriots had plenty of issues: New England struggled defensively against a young Rams’ team that was coming off a sub-.500 season the year before, thanks in large part to an impressive performance by young quarterback Sam Bradford.

And so, here we are. The third game of the preseason is the dress rehearsal. It’s historically the final chance for the starters to show they’re ready for the regular season before the season opener.
Christopher Price

FOXBORO — For all the talk about the Patriots’ renewed commitment to an aggressive pass rush this season, arguably their best and most consistent pass rusher over the last two seasons hasn’t seen action in New England’s first two preseason games.
Christopher Price

FOXBORO — Everyone wants stability. Everyone is striving for permanence.
Christopher Price
08/24/2011 - 12:31am
FOXBORO — It’s not easy being the new kid on the block, especially when you're a wide receiver trying to learn the Patriots’ offense.
Christopher Price
08/23/2011 - 12:09am
FOXBORO — It’s a different defense this season.
Christopher Price
08/22/2011 - 7:08pm
FOXBORO — Even though the calendar says August, the Patriots are starting to move into regular-season mode.
Christopher Price

Here’s a second guess at what the Patriots’ 53-man roster will look like when they take the field three weeks from Monday for their regular-season opener against the Dolphins. There are a few changes from our first roster rundown, including at running back, tight end and on the defensive line.

FOXBORO — Kyle Love’s game prep isn’t complete until he gets a text from his father. The son of a former Army officer, the words of wisdom are the jolt that the defensive tackle needs to get his head into the game. “Something to get me excited, some kind of words of encouragement,” Love said when asked what his Dad tells him.

It had been a long time since Tom Brady had seen real action on a football field.
Christopher Price
08/17/2011 - 8:18pm
FOXBORO — The second NFL preseason game is usually the toughest one to call. There isn’t the getting-to-know-you process that comes with the  opener, and it still doesn’t have the intensity of the third preseason game.
Christopher Price
08/16/2011 - 11:17pm
FOXBORO — No team takes big bodies and turns them into NFL-ready offensive linemen like the Patriots.
Christopher Price
08/16/2011 - 12:15am
FOXBORO — For the Patriots, this training camp has been all about big names: Ochocinco! Albert! Mankins! Brady!
Christopher Price

Four weeks from Monday, the 2011 Patriots will meet the Dolphins in Miami in the regular-season opener. With the understanding that things could change dramatically between now and then, after two-plus weeks of training camp and a preseason game against Jacksonville, here’s our best guess as to what the 53-man roster is going to look like against the Dolphins:
Christopher Price
08/12/2011 - 3:24am
FOXBORO — He stands in the longest shadow in the NFL, but every preseason, Brian Hoyer continues to remind people why he could be one of the most underrated players on the New England roster.
Christopher Price
08/11/2011 - 12:28am
FOXBORO — Football has returned.
Christopher Price
08/10/2011 - 1:00am
FOXBORO — Since he arrived in New England via a trade with Cincinnati on July 28, there have been two distinctly different Chad Ochocincos.
Christopher Price
08/09/2011 - 1:03am
FOXBORO — The Patriots ended the 2010 season with just eight healthy defensive linemen. Now, they have almost three times that many in training camp.
Christopher Price
08/05/2011 - 12:53am
FOXBORO — Like a protagonist in a Clint Eastwood Western, Logan Mankins has never been much for small talk. Case in point: When he was asked Thursday why he signed his one-year, $10.1 million franchise tender so quickly, Mankins responded with a small smirk.
Christopher Price
08/02/2011 - 6:24pm
FOXBORO — Few coaches are better at helping troubled NFL stars author a successful second act that Bill Belichick, and Albert Haynesworth is hoping that the Patriots coach can do it again.
Christopher Price
07/30/2011 - 1:51pm
FOXBORO — A relatively subdued Chad Ochocinco met the New England media for the first time following his first padded practice with the Patriots on Saturday morning, and while he was his usual quotable self — “Can I get a group hug, real quick from everybody?” he asked at th
Christopher Price

FOXBORO — The guy who drew most of the attention at Patriots’ practice Friday morning wasn’t even dressed for football.
Christopher Price
07/28/2011 - 7:10pm
FOXBORO — The addition of Chad Ochocinco to the Patriots brings a new dimension to the New England passing game, one the Patriots have lacked since Randy Moss was dealt last October: A big receiver
Christopher Price
07/28/2011 - 2:40pm
FOXBORO — It only took a few moments to realize that training camp had changed.
