The Patriots have started practices in Atlanta for Super Bowl LIII.
The Pats held their first practice of the week on Wednesday, and the Pats went indoors for 88 minutes, according to the pool report, going through special teams and 11 on 11. Tom Brady looked sharp, the report says, and Malcolm Brown was the only Patriot on the injury report; limited with a calf injury.
Meanwhile, Julian Edelman has played some of his biggest games on the biggest stage. Recently, there is some chatter of him having Hall of Fame credential. But when New England Nation asked him about it, he didn’t want to indulge.
“Not really thinking about that, thinking about Aquib Talib, Robey(-Coleman), Peters, and LA Rams and secondary and defense, and focus on that,” Edelman said.
Now, this was interesting- one reporter asking Bill Belichick if he ever wrote a book. Here is the exchange:
Reporter: “I wanted to know if you will write a book someday, your plays, your fundamentals- when you retire?”
Belichick: “I don’t know. Right now, trying to get ready for the Rams. That’s a full-time job. We’ll worry about that other stuff another time. Would you buy one?”
As for Thursday, it’s the final day the Pats have to talk to the media. They will have their second practice, then Friday their final practice of the week. Walk through and pictures will be on Saturday, and then, it’s game day on Sunday.
