Patriots weekend look-ahead

Patriots players have the weekend off and barring a personnel addition by the team, the plan here is to do so as well. So things will be a bit quieter in this space over the next day or so while time is spent with family.

On Saturday morning, there will still be the "football journey" on one of the newest members of the team who has made an immediate impact. On Sunday morning, there will be the regular quick-hit thoughts around the Patriots and NFL. A few other ESPN-related updates might find their on to the blog as well.

The plan will be to clean up loose ends on Monday, such as the defensive playtime stats from last week and some other regular features of the blog that were trumped by this week's big news with Randy Moss.

It's a beautiful weekend in New England. Hope everyone enjoys it.
