The New England Patriots have kicked off their 2017 preseason with a handful of practices and a few scrimmages against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Some of the younger players and new additions have stood out in a positive way, while some others have been invisible.

First, Alec and Rich review the career of Rob Ninkovich and try to figure out where he stands in the pantheon of Bill Belichick-era defenders and whether or not he’s a Patriots Hall of Fame lock.

Then, they look at the different positional groups and their various performances over the past couple of weeks, including standout performances by WR Brandin Cooks and EDGE Deatrich Wise. Alec gives his surprise cut of the summer.

Alec and Rich cover it all. This podcast is available in the iTunes store, Stitcher, TuneIn, BluBrry, and via RSS Feed. Please subscribe and comment on what you want to hear about in future podcasts!
