Ron Borges is here time continent. Thought some people say there's going to be a cloud run that lingo role -- this team because of the Hernandez situation. Will linger and did it and the last couple days if it's not gonna linger. A while they ended because you're gonna have a series these court appearances and so it's gonna keep coming in the news news news. In a football team is playing OK it won't be that big deal the offenses bogged down and doing nothing well then you know that is going to be emissary and it's it's. This going to be more -- on the field story that off field story going for just because of what Hernandez could do on the field -- this offense well that's that's a good point I mean if you keep saying with the Patriots offense going. Note that it's and so on the Bristol county jail. Then that's gonna continue to to come up as -- subpoenas as Ron mentioned as will every threshold. Crossed during this criminal situation. -- investigation and you know what could visit upon the Patriots at this -- to talk about. What did to relations they had with him would knowledge they have his whereabouts maybe last year before he signed his contract in June or. Anything having to do that I I think that the football will go away but what we have of a gaping Mott to fill. Here had all the other entities that you mentioned but we'll have Hernandez to talk about in football both who have one real life Ron I know we can learn so much out of one day of training you're just -- -- today Anderson got two out of range you get wet. I get on in that. -- luck it's with the way too early in the united and in pads until Sunday you know so everybody looks well almost -- it looks good in in shorts and teacher some guys -- throw interceptions but. You know most guys look pretty good teacher will get to that guy who missed throwing interceptions before what stood out to you Tom on that one. Well the main things were personnel grouping. And I thought the Jamie called second round pick. Was put in I don't think that he was he was put in with -- the ones in place of Donta hightower who moved into Brandon Spikes spot and it's just for a couple reps one can really do with his point six. Both -- and they're gonna try that out it's by no means a conclusion they just wanna see if it works. To some level and whether or not they wanna continue doing that you could about Michael Jenkins looked good Aaron Dobson was a complete mess. In a mini camp he did not look that good but guys with fairly confident and non contact manner. So many questions about the Patriots passing game with Tom Brady going to get the football to look look at some of these numbers. There's not a lot of routes from these guys Steven Ridley nine catches -- Marines got eight home fans get five fell before. Brandon Bolden with -- Matthew Slater was one of course we're not counting Rob Gronkowski who obviously is on the PUP list. -- A bit of a question mark the passing game right now and how big of a question we'll be going forward. Well I think it's it's a mystery boy you know what anything else even with Brady he doesn't know what he's got that as that goes -- he got Tom Brady got you gonna have. Passes completed. That the thing I wonder about is all the quarterbacks and he is one now they tend to be less patience. In part because they've seen a lot of things and it doesn't take too long to figure out what's and that's bad they don't like it. And I think that that's something over time you don't watch for it. If these guys are progressing. He'll be fine if they're not then you gonna see in two of United's. Tom brought you by doctor Robert planner and Tom wood got our first real look at Danny Amendola. Is he gonna lead the way with a football. And he's still questioned felt with him know that I really didn't question now that aspect as much as other people because I thought his injuries. -- -- you know we have a caller but when you. Land from a fairly high distance. You have a dislocated elbow when you -- -- -- as well -- -- Well Chris was a non -- Act ACL that happens the beginning of his seasons having ended a missiles he's I think he's going to be a very good player I think Bill Belichick. And Josh McDaniels will make an express. Effort to make sure that he catches no fewer than three figures. Worth the passes and you know it seems a good kid he seems like he's tried artist under -- drafted out of Texas Tech hard to root against them. Necessarily so god bless them all because thought. Patriots moved up in the draft last year from they got -- they hightower they got Chandler Jones. Public pressure for both you guys or there or is there on both of those guys to lead his defense like. Andrew is you know into that -- I have to lead that they have to be a big producers. You know that taken I should point out they both had their moments. Positive moments. In the -- he's got enough but yeah I think they did you know I mean you know when your first year player. Mean he did show some flashes that you can do some things which they both did. Yelling in jones' case any of ran out of gas you know -- -- Atlanta -- the season ever played. Life NHL. Well he should that you no longer be a problem should stop that it's. Well that'll take a guess for that he's an active and that's all I got for ten games you've got may not that hard just like -- what do you expect out of these guys. I think you can expect the Fairmont you just have to expect them. To continue his Bill Belichick says players will mature the most between the first and second seasons and I think Cameron Jones. His ability to to play. And become a leader to play hurt if we threw things into the you know. He had difference maker regularly to a sixteen game season is massive. What they had to add though is this is a team with the stats left burp and out and what intent when scoring twenty or less since 2009. That's you gotta win a few games that are played in the -- once in awhile. Team has relied on throwing the football it's going 35 or forty points maybe the defense finally win some football games. For this team this year.
