    Coach Bill Belichick confirmed Sunday that Ryan Mallett earned the Patriots' No. 2 quarterback job this preseason.
    The Pats confirmed as much by waiving Brian Hoyer. "He’s in the on-deck circle," Belichick said of Mallett. "He’s the next guy ... He’s earned that spot now." The 74th overall pick in last year's draft, Mallett went 25-of-48 (52.1 percent) for 211 yards (4.4 YPA), three touchdowns and no interceptions in New England's final three preseason games. He did look composed and talented enough to keep New England's offense moving in the event of a Tom Brady injury.

    Patriots RG Brian Waters still has not reported to the team.
    New England's opener is seven days away. The Pats have been incredibly patient with Waters -- a 35-year-old rumored to be contemplating retirement -- but at some point they're going to have to move on. In their third preseason game, the Patriots started Donald Thomas at right guard with Marcus Cannon at right tackle. Thomas was clearly one of the offensive line's weakest links.

    ^ the report I read says his name plate is still over hsi locker but that it's cleaned out.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    So, it isn't a done deal then? At this point I'm not expecting him to be on the team, but hopefully he is.

    Not expecting it either. Thought so at first, but it is not looking great.

    According to Yardbarker Waters wants to play closer to home with the Texans but the Pats won't release him and are hoping he'll return at some point.

    Rookie linebacker Dont'a Hightower now will wear No. 54, the same number Waters wore in 2011. Waters, who made the Pro Bowl last year, remains under contract but doesn't count against the Patriots' roster. He's on the exempt/left team list and is strongly considering retirement.

    There has been hope throughout the preseason that Waters eventually would show up and improve the team's guard situation. With less than a week before the season opener, it sure looks like the Patriots will be moving on without him

    This is really something. The Patriots won 14 regular season games during the 2010 season. In 2011, the Patriots won 13 regular season games and played in the SB. All this while rebuilding a roster with youth. This is a major achievement for BB.

    BTW, here is a short article on his team being young.

    Maybe due diligence, or maybe BB has interest in him as a cheap third QB.

    Most have been giving the Pats, 49ers and Texans as locks to win their division.

    We don't really have any competitors in our division. Kind of a given.

    Patriots signed RB Lex Hilliard and waived C Matt Tennant.
    Hilliard has been primarily a special teamer throughout his three-year career with the Dolphins. His addition could be a sign that Shane Vereen (foot) is in danger of missing the season opener.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there.
