Taking my talents down to Foxborough tonight for what should be a good game and great start to the season.
Taking my talents down to Foxborough tonight for what should be a good game and great start to the season. KC can mix it up on D, so Tom should be seeing pressure early and often.I imagine most on this site follow the Pats, but can anyone provide a perspective in which this team doesn't win 12 games and make it to the AFC championship in NE?Normally there's one or two teams that can contend in the AFC, but I don't see it this year:Oak-not yetPitt- nahTenn- not yetCincy- nahDenver- nahKC- nahHouston- not yetBalt- nahI'm not saying that injuries/flukes can't happen, but from a prediction stand point, is there anyone even close?I think the NFC can pose some challenges, esp ATL, GB, CAR, and SEA.
Man, what a disaster. Yes, injuries, but the team looked quite pedestrian out there with some very basic executions missed - two 4th and inches, 6-yd loss on 2nd and goal at the 3-yd line, and of course the two blown coverages on bombs down field by Alex freakin' Smith.The Pats defense looks like swiss cheese and Tom Brady was less than impressive with some surprising overthrows/misses.It's not the end of the world and KC is a good team, but with such a seemingly strong start and so many penalties by KC, this should have been gone much differently.
What a crappy game.Never thought I'd see Alex Smith outplay Tom Brady.Pats D was AWFUL. Couldn't stop Smith or the rookie RB Hunt. Could figure out how to stop the repeated use of the shovel pass. Horrible pass coverage deep.Offense not much better. Horrible play calls, especially the stupid runs straight up the middle that went nowhere. No dumpoff passes to White or Lewis. Gronk hardly a factor. And Amendola and Hightower get hurt.From now on, the Pats should just forfeit any game vs. KC.Now we've gotta wait 10 days to see if they can get their act together.
Well, it seems we'll at least be able to put the lid on the 19-0 nonsense early. Good.
Won't be easy especially with all the injuries, but hopefully the Pats play much better than last Thursday and get their first win of the season tomorrow. Drew Brees is a HOF QB and no doubt he will have a great game tomorrow, but the Saints defense is garbage and TB12 and the Pats offense NEEDS to take advantage. I'm predicting a high-scoring affair with the Patriots winning 38-27. Pats defense will still look real shaky, and Brees will do very well especially with a lack of pass rush from NE, but I think the defense will do *just enough* and make the key stops when needed late. Hoping Brandin Cooks has a huge game vs. his former team. And I expect TB12 to rally the troops tomorrow like this:
