Bedard: Patriots’ young WRs better make most of chances because, hopefully, they’ll be coming to an end

ALLEN PARK, Mich. — I'm pretty patient when it comes to the Patriots and their talent, especially on the offensive of the ball. I've seen too much over the years and have too much respect for their coaches not to. Their collective resumes speak for themselves.

If something isn't good enough, they'll figure out a way to make it work if given time.

That's basically the way I've approached some of the deficiencies at the offensive skill positions. It's how I've fended off our spirited members in each of our long-lasting member Q&As.

Yeah, it doesn't look good right now, but between Bill Belichick, Josh McDaniels, Tom Brady, Dante Scarnecchia and Ivan Fears, they'll figure out a way to score the points they need at some point.

But, to be honest, I'm having a harder time staying patient during this training camp — especially after the joint practices with the Lions.

Basically, here's where I am at this point: the Patriots' young receivers should take advantage of all the reps they'll get against the Lions and next week against the Titans. Because I really hope help is on the way before the season because right now, with this group, Brady is being forced to work with what is objectively a junior varsity set of weapons.

I mean, in comparison, Matthew Stafford was throwing to the 2000 Greatest Show On Turf Rams.
