Patriots Blog: Helping The Youngsters
FOXBORO (CBS) – The Patriots are back on the practice field today after having Monday off. I expect them to hit this session hard.
Coach Belichick is still probably not happy with the weather; the temps have been mild and he likes to put his players out there in the heat.
Some things to focus on today: Defense. Are the young guys showing any growth??
I spoke to Devin McCourty over the weekend and he felt that he was fielding a lot of questions from the rooks. He thought that was a good thing — he knew what he went through and the advice that helped him just a few years ago.
“When I got here I picked up things and a lot of things were thrown at me,” said McCourty. “Now, being my third year I’m hearing it again, so I’m just trying to take advantage of that and help the younger guys out who probably feel the same way I did three years ago.”
McCourty On Helping The Rookies:
The third-year corner is now paying it forward to guys like Alfonzo Dennard and Tavon Wilson. That should go a long way to forming a solid, and young, secondary core.
