Brady led his team to a victory over San Diego in the 2011 home opener at Gillette on Sunday.
The New England Patriots continued their offensive showcase Sunday against the San Diego Chargers in the home opener of the 2011 season.

All eyes were on Ochocinco during day 2 of camp, as he took part in the afternoon practice. Fans got their first look at #85 in a Patriots uniform.
It takes an awful lot to draw fans and especially the medias attention away from Tom Brady. Every year at the Patriots Open Camp, Brady is almost always the main focus. On Friday afternoon, when the Patriots suited up in pads and helmets, the attention was solely on #85 at camp, Chad Ochocinco. Earlier in the day it was reported that both Ochocinco and Albert Haynesworth would not be at camp until next week due to contract signings being ironed out. Something happened and happened quickly on Friday, as Ochocinco was a surprise guest in pads and a helmet to practice with Tom Brady, Wes Welker, and the rest of the team.

While the deal is not finalized yet, Haynesworth must first pass a physical conditioning test, something he has failed in the past. Haynesworth has a checkered past to say the least, but given that players such as Cory Dilon, Randy Moss and others with less than perfect pasts have come to …
