Roman Harper "Pats practice just like everyone else"

Patriots receiver Brandon LaFell has been a little bitter since the Panthers made the decision to not re-sign him this off season. He took his frustration to the media, announcing to the world that the Patriots “practice harder” than the Panthers. This obviously did not go well with his previous fans, and I’m sure it left players and coaching staff in Carolina a little insulted. One player chose to speak out against LaFell’s words, and surprisingly it was ex-Saint safety Roman Harper.

Following OTAs on Wednesday, Harper told media that the Patriots practice “like everyone else”, via Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer. Harper practiced against New England when the Saints held joint practices, so he was able to experience the Patriot way first hand.

Harper.............I am liking this guy the more I hear from him.  Hated him as a Saint,  but he is a true team first type of player.  Even if he is a little dirty.

I just assumed there was truth to LaFell's statement.

If you went to Spartanburg during both the Fox years and the Rivera years, there is a noticeable difference.

*I do realize most of that is due to the CBA

It was a bit of news Patriots fans didn’t want to hear, although it has been a familiar refrain in New England the past dozen or so years. Newly signed wide receiver Brandon Lafell has had difficulty picking up the Patriots system.

“I’m used to running a number system, and now I’m back to code words, so it’s a lot,” LaFell said. “The quicker I can learn this offense the quicker I can go out there and be reliable, to play fast and know what I’m doing — instead of now, I’m kind of playing at half-speed because I’m thinking so much.”

With Lafell going from a numbers-based system to code word system, the learning curve is tough and not every wide receiver that has come here has been able to master it. Many established veterans have struggled here among them Joey Galloway, Michael Jenkins, Donald Jones and Chad Ocho Cinco.

Nothing gets a receiver frozen out of the Patriots system quicker than losing the confidence of Brady. And running the wrong route and being in the wrong location will do that quickly. So Lafell has his work cut out for him.

We'll teach you how to cheap-shot, if you teach us how to operate a tripod.
