New England Patriots Links 12/16/09 - Adalius Thomas Gets a Good Wrap

Titus Adams (left) and Adalius Thomas get all wrapped up in the 'Wrap a Pat' portion of the New England Patriots charitable foundation/Salvation Army Holiday party at Gillette Stadium yesterday.

Adalius Thomas earned points with Robert Kraft and especially the kids, who adorned he and defensive lineman Titus Adams in gift wrap as part of the "Wrap-a-Pat" portion of the evening.  Great photos of the event here.

"It was a little crazy being wrapped up with Titus.  He's a little claustrophobic.  I'm a little claustrophobic.  I found out he's a lot more claustrophobic than I am,"  Thomas said earlier this evening.  "But it was very interesting to see the kids do that.  I don't know how much paper it was but that was a lot of paper.  I could have used some of that.  I need to wrap some gifts when I get home."

"Any time when it's about the kids, nothing else really matters.  It's a game that we're playing,"  Thomas said.  "That's truly what it is.  But these kids are dealing with the game of life, which is a lot more important than football.  You come out here, you try to put a smile on their faces, and hopefully they forget about any problems they may have or anything they may be going through.  So if you can come out and lend a hand, spend a piece of your day and give them something to remember for a lifetime, I think that's a great trade-off."

Bill Belichick talks up Bills' WR Terrell Owens and if he's still the same threat he's been in the past.

Well, yeah.  Ask Jacksonville, ask Miami. He does a great job on the vertical deep routes. He's obviously big and fast and he can go up and get the ball. But he's also very good on the underneath routes, like what happened last week on a catch-and-run play where he caught the ball underneath, broke a couple tackles, and got the ball in the end zone. He's dangerous. He made a nice play there against Kansas City, but he's also made nice plays down the field. They try to get him the ball underneath. They did that against us in the first game for a 20-something-yard gain, whatever it was.

So he's a guy that can hurt you in a lot of different ways - deep, intermediate, run after the catch. He had a real nice play that got called back against Miami. He had a real nice play where he took a reverse and they had him in the backfield for about a 10-yard loss, and he ended up gaining about 10, 12 yards on the play and broke three or four tackles along the way. I think he's still got plenty of skill.
