Patriots Links 6/22/09 - Patriots Throw Up a Screen

Patriots go Dolphin fishing in Miami: win 49-28, October 22, 2007.

Mike Reiss notes the Dolphins have been rebuilding their team with the Patriots in mind.

Parcells, in his second season as executive vice president of football operations in Miami, has orchestrated a significant overhaul of the secondary. The Dolphins signed free agent safety Gibril Wilson to a lucrative contract, added cornerback Eric Green in free agency, and drafted cornerbacks Vontae Davis (first round) and Sean Smith (second round) - four moves aimed at improving a pass defense that ranked 25th in yards surrendered per game last season (227.8).

Think Parcells had the Patriots and their high-flying passing attack in mind?

Rex Ryan talks on Sirius Blitz about his trash talking.

"I have not been a head coach in the National Football League, not for one game," said Ryan "But I’ve been myself my whole life and that’s the way it’s gotta be. I know I’m not going to be successful if I have to pipe down. That’s not who I am. I’m just going to tell it the way I believe it to be, and I certainly didn’t mean to be disrespectful, especially to [Bill] Belichick. I have a lot of respect for him. I have a lot of respect for his coaches and his football team, but my point is, we’re not afraid of any of these guys. We’re not intimidated by them and our players shouldn’t be."
