It’s hard to believe, but another Patriots training camp is upon us. After what has been a painfully long, yet at the same time fast offseason, it’s time to get down to football.
There is more uncertainty this season than in recent memory. Some feel the team has taken a step backwards this offseason, and will be challenged by the Dolphins in the AFC East, while others think it is just the same old Belichick/Brady business as usual.
It will be interesting to watch this team this camp as things get sorted out. Keep up with all stories at Patriotslinks.com
A couple of media stories for this morning:
Torey Champagne’s documentary remembers Reggie Lewis – Bill Doyle looks at the excellent CSNNE documentary on Reggie Lewis, who passed away 20 years ago this weekend. The program airs Sunday night.
The documentary is outstanding, and for anyone who remembers that time, many memories, both great and painful will come flooding back. There is no Jimmy Meyers in the program, which some may view as a positive, but Meyers was very close to Lewis, and his perspective on the tragedy could’ve added interest to the show.
Reggie Lewis was the only athlete I ever wore a jersey of. (Well, other than getting a Marcus Allen when I was about 8 – the only “Allen” jersey that could found…)
