The Rap Sheet:
At the end last week’s win over the Redskins, the entire Patriots defense celebrated LB Jerod Mayo’s interception. But CB Devin McCourty could only give a half-celebration. I noticed how McCourty couldn’t lift his right arm above his shoulder, and mentioned it to him yesterday.
He denied it, which was both wrong and kinda cool. He doesn’t care how hurt he is, just how he’s contributing. I asked him how he feels.
“I’m feeling pretty good,” said McCourty, who is still recovering from a separated shoulder. “After missing a couple games, I feel about how everybody else feels around this time. It’s a long season, so nobody’s 100 percent, so just probably feeling like everyone else.”
Well, that’s not true, either, but again, cool that that’s how he feels. As far as the Broncos offense, McCourty was more effusive. Yes, he conceded, it’s a run-first offense. But that doesn’t mean life will be easy for the CBs facing Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas.
