Vick to start, split time with Foles vs. Patriots
“Definitely jitters a little bit, just because it’s something new,” Dobson said. “I’m ready for it. I’m excited to play.”
Running back LeGarrette Blount also will make his Patriots debut. Blount, who ran for 1,007 yards as a rookie for Tampa Bay in 2010, is coming off a disappointing season and was traded to New England for a seventh-round draft pick. He’ll be playing against his former coach at Oregon in Kelly.
“He’s a real good coach and a real good guy,” Blount said. “I loved his offense at Oregon and if it’s going to be anything like that, they’ll be pretty productive.”
All eyes will be on Kelly’s offense to see how up-tempo style translates in the NFL. Kelly had tremendous success at Oregon, and everyone has been wondering since he replaced Andy Reid how he’ll do in the NFL.
Though Kelly won’t show too much in the preseason, it’ll be a small sampling at least.
“It’s going to be a lot of fun,” Kelly said. “I think the way our camp worked out for itself, our players came in with great attitudes and that part was exciting. Then you get an opportunity to now bring a new team in. I think that kind of changed how we were doing things. Now we’re getting into the preseason portion of it. We don’t talk about it’s just the preseason. It’s on the line every time you go on the field.
“So we’re all excited about our opportunity to play tomorrow night.”
