Pats Thursday practice report

FOXBORO -- For the second straight day, Terrence Wheatley and Nick Kaczur were the only players missing as the Patriots practice in full pads on the upper fields outside Gillette Stadium.

Rodney Harrison on D&H: Pats will win

Former Patriots great Rodney Harrison joined Dale & Holley to talk about this weekend's Pats game with the Jets and was asked for a prediction right off the bat. "I think the Patriots will win, definitely," Harrison said. "I'm really impressed with the defense, the youth and the speed. I'm watching the tape and I'm like, 'Wow, look how fast how these guys are.'"

 

Harrison was asked about what it's like the week leading up to the Jets game. "I can sum it up like this: The Patriots hate the Jets, but I still think the Indianapolis Colts [are] the bigger rivalry. The simple fact is: The Patriots respect the Colts, the Patriots hate the Jets." 

 

Harrison did offer praise for Jets corner Darelle Revis, noting that Ty Law called him when he went to the Jets and told Harrison, "We've got a kid down here who's going to be the best cornerback in the National Football League. Might be the...

Welker: Full year before complete recovery

FOXBORO -- Wes Welker admitted Thursday that he would love to be without the bulky brace on his left knee but that might be wishful thinking at this early point of the season. 

 

"We'll see where we're at," Welker said. "I'm definitely ready to get rid of it. We're definitely going to be cautious with it." 

 

Welker caught eight passes for 64 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's 38-24 win over the Bengals at Gillette Stadium. Still, Welker doesn't feel he's physically back to where he was before tearing up the knee on Jan. 3 in last year's regular season finale at Houston. 

 

"It takes a full year until I'm me again, is what they say," Welker said Thursday.

Poll: Are Gillette Stadium fans lame?

On Wednesday, Patriots QB Tom Brady made his feelings known loud and clear about the many empty seats disguised as fans at Gillette Stadium for most of the fourth quarter, when the Patriots raced out to a 38-17 lead in Sunday’s 38-24 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. “The road environment is very different than our very friendly home crowd, who when I looked up, half the stadium was gone when we were up 21 points early fourth quarter, which I wasn’t so happy about,” Brady said. “I don’t think the Jets fans leave early. They’re going to be loud the whole game."

Schlereth: Jets 'already crowned themselves'

Speaking on the Dennis & Callahan Show, ESPN NFL analyst Mark Schlereth said the attention the Jets have brought upon themselves might come back to haunt them, citing how especially motivated Ray Lewis and his Baltimore Ravens were heading into the Jets' Monday Night Football loss to Lewis' team.

 

"Let's face it. The Jets sometimes are their own worst enemy," Schlereth said. "They've painted their own targets on their back by the way they've talked. They've already gone through the coronation. They just have 16 games to play and then get through the playoffs. They've already crowned themselves. All that talk is fun and entertaining, but the bottom line is that they have to back it up."

 

The former NFL offensive lineman also noted that quarterbacks such as Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady separate themselves partly by the way they conduct themselves throughout a game, exuding a confidence...
