Patriots Talk

Nate Ebner was thought to be little more than a special teams player when he was taken late in this year's draft. After a pick last night, he's gaining more attention.
Despite the win, the Eagles had a rough night when you consider all the penalties they racked up against Patriots second-teamers. That and the scene on the sidelines between Andy Reid and Cullen Jenkins.
On a night where starting tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez had the night off, converted defensive lineman Alex Silvestro made the most of his opportunity.
Another preseason game is in the books, and unfortunately another poor performance by the Patriots tackles is in the books too. With the regular season approaching, Marcus Cannon and Nate Solder have work to do.
With Jerod Mayo on the sidelines and Dane Fletcher out for the season with an ACL injury, it was Dont'a Hightower calling plays against the Eagles Monday night. Just another learning experience for the rookie.
Deion Branch found himself an unfamiliar territory Monday night: Playing in the fourth quarter of a preseason game. But it doesn't bother Branch, who's just focused on making the team.
Greg Dickerson and Mike Felger were joined by Mike Flynn and Albert Breer where they discussed the play of Pats QB Ryan Mallett, the injury of Eagles QB Michael Vick, and the Patriots offensive line issues.
