In Response to Re: Devon and Ras-I : From what I have read Ras is "looking good" ie impressive tackling and hanging with any receiver he is assigned. Not the same story when it comes to McCourty, frequently behind , though he seems to catch up to the play frequently. Also he is NOT an impressive tackler. He probably is cut out for free safety. Hopefully I'm wrong but right now I would lean toward a starting pair of Ras and Kyle Arrington maybe even Ras and Sterling Moore. Preseason starts in 2 weeks. It will interesting to watch this team progress to opening day.Not sure I would solely count the opinions expressed on this BDC Patriots Fan messageboard as being an actual "accredited source of the fact-based detailed happenings in Patriots training camp."

Head to both ESPN Boston and their training camp notes and this very BDC Extra Points section with fuller breakdowns of 5 or so odd Pats Practices thus far.
Devin McCourty's name has been mentioned in at least 4 seperate extremely positive instances of him breaking up passes and making plays. Go check, and you will see. ...And that imo is a near MIRACULOUS feat for a Cornerback to come away with even 1 positive mentionable RE: A reporter actually noting a good play from a guy in the CB spot... You'll see THIS, too: 9 outta every 10 X, whenever a CB gets mentioned by a reporter viewing Pats Camp Practices, it solely is in light of them getting beat or looking bad. < You'll see plenty of this too...yet oddly, even during scrimmages where you can't hit the QB nor the ball-carrier, You'll see several Pats Secondary players mentioned for their "poor play" somewhere, and you'll see reporters mentioning seperate poor plays from each Pats Secondary guy in different instances and from different practices. YET, 1 guy that I've YET to see mentioned (other than by fans on this messageboard) regarding his "underwhelming performances" is McCourty... In fact, the sum total of the Pros RE: McCourty's good plays really were 4 or so seperate excellent plays on the ball during different practices and different reports from seperate reporters. While The sum of the Negatives from DMC's play thus far, Were unlinked reports by random posters revolving around Practice #1 in shirts and shorts (and no pads)...and lol, I don't even know if even THIS is true lol...
You'll see, go take a look for yourself, and make sure to try to do so without bringing any preformulated op-eds prior to reading each practice breakdown from these reporters that were witnessing each practice, up close and personal.
Like I said fellas, far better to base your ultimate judgements based on actual multiple sources of information from actual events witnessed by several NFL reporters during seperate spans of the several practices we've had, rather than formulating your analysises about how a Pats player performed based on the preformed personal opinions (judgements which were actually wrong from the get-go, which is extra exceptional when you hold firm, strong, and immobile in your initial falsities, those you even further-->)- that you will attempt to forward into the future as absolutely unsubstantiated and even totally untrue FACT of the here and now present day..."facts" originally based on the personal notion that in 2012 you thought NE's Offense was the greatest that ever played, but NE's Defense ultimately & always failed them & WILL always undoubtedly fail them from now until eternity, Because their Secondary is the worst that has ever existed and will unquestionably remain that way, because our #1 2nd year starting Cornerback, doesn't even deserve to be on the football field, then, now, and always, And If
only- If Only
, we had a Coach who was wise enough to draft the man who you simply wanted others to completely know full-well (in 12 seperate threads dedicated to him), WILL BE
regarded as THE Greatest Cornerback that will ever grace the pro field, Janoris Jenkins
, then that maybe might've been something at least, considering we could've then immediately cut, or simply benched, the worst CB in football & this team's weakest of all links we've ever allowed to play here, Devin McCourty.
