New England Patriots Links 8/12/11 - Patriots, Jaguars Get This Preseason Party Started

WR Taylor Price talks about how different he feels this year than last year at this point.

"A lot different. I just put the time in, put the work in, just knowing the playbook that much more after a year of a so-called redshirt year, getting that much more comfortable with the quarterbacks. Just go out there, put it all together and play fast and tough football."

"I know I’ve got skills. I believe in myself. I know I’ve got the talent to play at this level. It’s just about going out there and showing these teammates, getting the trust of these teammates and the coaching staff and showing that I can play. I’m going to keep doing that and I’m going to keep getting better."

"It felt good to get out there, competing against someone other then your own teammates and have live action so you can show what you can do. I feel a lot different. I am putting the time in, the work in and knowing the playbook so much more after a year. I am getting more comfortable with the quarterback. I just feel so much better."

RB Stevan Ridley tells the media how it felt to get out there and play his first NFL game, and how he thinks he did.

"I just went out there and just played ball. I’m just very thankful for the coaches putting me in the opportunity that I had. It was truly a blessing to be out here on the field – out here playing my dream and doing that. This team has a lot to do – we have a lot of work to do. I just have to continue to work hard every day and opportunities will open up in the future."

"I’m just being a football player. I’m just doing what the coaches ask me to do. They want me to be a downhill runner and that’s what I’m going to continue to do. If that’s what this team needs me to do, that’s what I’ll continue to do."

"God has blessed me – just to be out there and be able to have a lot of talent, just to get out there and do a lot of things – catching the ball and running, try to be an all around back. I’m nowhere close to perfect and I just have a lot of work to do. I’m not satisfied – I’m sure the coaches aren’t either. I’m just going to continue to work hard every day and do my best and help this team improve to get better."
