Shots Heard 'Round The Web - Patriots Links 5/27/09


Paul Perillo says Gary Guyton will be an important part of the 2009 Pats defense.

His speed and athleticism are necessary ingredients in the Patriots sub packages and he’ll likely be asked to serve in that capacity once again. He has the ability to cover backs out of the backfield and his speed allows him to get from sideline to sideline in the underneath zones, an area where the team has suffered over the past couple of seasons. A year of experience under his belt should give him a lift and allow him to further his role this season. I see him as a possible starter inside next to Jerod Mayo, but more likely he’ll see his playing time in passing situations.

Gary Guyton tackles 49ers QB J.T. O'Sullivan during an October 5, 2008 matchup at Candlestick Park in San Francisco.

Shalise Manza Young says the media portion of Thursday's OTA at Gillette will have a circus-like feel.

Brady back under center, comfort for Moss and Welker, a healthy and speedy Joey Galloway in the mix, and a backfield of Fred Taylor, Laurence Maroney, Sammy Morris and the seemingly ageless Kevin Faulk — step right up folks. It's the show you've all been waiting for.

Matt Bowen (Nat'l Football Post) Thinks the Pats’ offense will be the best in the league next season — and nearly unstoppable.

Along with Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints, there isn’t an offense that’s more prepared to score points in ’09 than the Patriots. Sure, Moss is using the media to hype his own team and his talent, but I find it hard to argue with him when I look at their roster, and believe Brady will be back slinging the football around the field.

This offense, as Moss says, is loaded.
