WEEI.com’s Chris Price attempts the Patriots Conditioning Test (by WEEIVideo) I’ve long wanted to attempt this but now that I see Chris dying I think I’m all set… Here’s what Tedy Bruschi had to say about the linebacker version of the test: Tedy: My test was three sets of ten 50-yard sprints. You had to complete each sprint in seven seconds, and you had 30 seconds in between each sprint. In between the three sets of ten 50-yard sprints, you got a break of three minutes.

Shane Vereen Rising

I’m the new Kevin Faulk Juan… Shane Vereen is starting to get more and more reps in the high flying Patriot offense.  He looked great in the Pats first preseason game and after Ridley has put the ball on the turf in consecutive days, Vereen starting get more reps.  Ridley fumbled and was benched in 2011, so this is slightly worrisome.  Remember that Belichick was spoiled with...
