Shots Heard 'Round The Web - Patriots Links 5/22/09


John Cockrell's Friday Out-Takes lists the Top Ten Things We're Less Sick Of Than Brett Favre:

2.  JAMES HARRISON and his bizarre theory on White House visits: "If you want to see the Pittsburgh Steelers, invite us when we don't win the Super Bowl. As far as I'm concerned, they would've invited Arizona if they had won." Also as far as James is concerned: Friendly's  would only make him a Fribble if he gave them money, and the Celts would've played LeBron in the Conference Finals had they scored more points than the Magic in Game 7.  It boggles the mind, this man's jack-ass capacity.  On the other hand, we appreciate him inspiring a future Out-Takes featurette, "As Far as James Harrison is Concerned..." Look for it.

Christopher Price reports Tully Banta-Cain is excited to be back with the Patriots.

“I know that Vrabel played a big role in this defense, so with him being gone, there is an opening,” Banta-Cain said. “Whether that means I’m going to fill it or whoever, that’s to be determined. But I think that’s what motivating a lot of the guys here -- hey, there’s a great chance to step in and continue to help the team win.”

Albert Breer relays some advice from Carson Palmer to Tom Brady: "Be prepared for the mental obstacles."

"I would just tell him to be prepared for the mental obstacles when he gets back on the practice field -- and the game field," Palmer said. "You have to get over being uneasy about people being down around your feet and get over feeling like you need to step out of the way to protect yourself."
