Inside GilletteBy Bruce Allen

We’re very pleased to announce that we’ve filled what was previously the only open day in our posting schedule.

Tuesdays will now be home to Inside Gillette – a weekly notes column from Christopher Price which will bring Patriots Daily readers right to Foxborough, with bits and pieces picked up from around Gillette during the week. Quotes and stats of the week, as well as items from practices, press conferences and the games themselves will all be a part of the column, which debuts a week from today.

Price is an award-winning sportswriter who has covered the Patriots since 2001 for Boston Metro. He’s served a contributor to,, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post and The Miami Herald. Price’s weekly feature on the Patriots “10 Things We Learned…” was one of the most popular Patriots columns among readers last season.

Chris is also the author of the new book The Blueprint: How the New England Patriots Beat the System to Create the Last Great NFL Superpower which is due to be released on October 2.

We’re looking forward to having Chris as a part of the staff, and to including his insights on the team here on the site.

With the addition of Price to the lineup, here is a reminder of what the weekly schedule is going to looking once the regular season gets underway:

Sunday: Sunday Links and Game Day Blog by Scott Benson
Monday: Game Day Rear View by Scott Benson
Tuesday: Inside Gillette by Chris Price
Wednesday: Direct Snapp by Dan Snapp
Thursday: Bill Barnwell’s Statistical Research of the Week
Friday: Patriots Roundtable
Saturday: Greg Doyle’s look at the day’s major college football games with an eye towards the Patriots’ 2008 draft selections.

In between those posts, we will of course also cover any breaking news, add our thoughts to news items, and sprinkle in some excerpts from the Bill Walsh book The Winning Edge.
