Yeah, it might be early and all that, but they do not look good at all. saints D-line is blowing them up and Brady was running for his life. He got sacked and fumbled.

edit: to be clear, its the early in the first quarter so their starters are all in right now.

Yeah. Nate Solder not looking good. Several Holding calls already, still in the first.

Pats can't move the ball. LOL. Procedure penalties, holding, giving up pressures almost ever play. Let's hope this continues.

Pats defense looks so-so, as well. Just gave up a long pass on 3rd and forever. Same old problems in the secondary, I see.

Pats have been hit pretty hard recently between retirements, injuries, and no shows. Let's hope it continues into the season. We play them twice in December but a few extra loses never hurts our chances of making things interesting.

Let's hope this continues.One can't help but wonder if the replacement officials may be detrimental to not only the health and safety of the players, but also the integrity of the game and the way it's called.

The Pats are probably playing vanilla yogurt offense and defense..Belicheat will not give away anything until it counts.
The bad protection must be very alarming for them. Maybe Tinsel Tommy will get a few bruises tonight..heh..heh..heh

Yeah, $20 to watch all preseason games live. Seems like a good deal to me. I also buy the Game Rewind sub so I can rewatch all our games and see the coach film or just study some of the plays. I kill a lot of time with it. LOL

Brady has already been hit a few times, one was a pretty big one where he got sandwiched in between two lineman. Blocking has been really poor. Chandler Jones looks REALLY good tho

There is a huge Pats fan in my office and he's been talking for weeks about how bad their O'Line is gonna be. I'm skeptical of course, because of Belichick's deal with the Devil, but one can hope.

it's an OL getting older with only 2 projected starters under 30 and in theory they don't have a lot of depth, but we'll see. If need be, I think they have the assets to make a trade.

maybe these new refs will actually start calling these holding calls on solder. I dont understand why they werent being called more frequent on him last year? He holds and doesnt get called more than any lineman I know.

They might as well give up. The season is over.

Thats not true at all. Over the last ten years they have a 24-20 preseason record.

On that play my two year son started laughing and clapping. Already have him trained, when Brady gets hit we cheer no matter who he's playing. It was a pretty good pop, he got up slowly. The older you get the more hits sting. Let's hope it happens a lot this season.

Pats are going to miss the "Law firm", Ben Jarvis Green-Ellis. Belichick drafted Vereen and Ridley as RBs but both are unproven. Interesting that Belichick refused to pay Green-Ellis who was pretty decent.

oh its not a big deal for this team to struggle. We play the exact same way tom and the pitch forks are coming out.lol

The dude never fumbled a ball in the pros. That in of itself is worth a nice contract.

Later Brady was sitting on the sideline with a towel wiping his nose and brow like he was looking for blood. They got him good. LOL

He will get hit a bunch this season, Solder is going to get him killed. Their O-line isnt the same.

Itís comical to listen to all the dollfags fans get excited over the pat o-line struggling in the 1st pre-season game. You clearly donít even get it thinking that it was the Patriots starters playing during that game. News flash only one starter was in that line up, LG Mankins is recovering from surgery and will be back for the opener, Waters has not retired and like last year will be ready to go for week one. RT. Vollmer had an off-season procedure and is also expected to be back , but the fact is even if none of them came back the Pats would still go 2-0 against the pathetic dollfags this season.

The day will come when our teams fortunes will be reversed probably sooner than later and you'll be long gone with your childish insults!

What makes you think they'll be 100% if/when they return?

Yawn..

Mankins might be back by opening day. Might as opposed to likely.

Vollmer is just off the PUP, so he'll just start practicing, but if his back injury is of the chronic variety, he may be hampered continuously all through the season.

Waters is still MIA. Did he decide to retire and NOT tell anybody? Is he holding out and NOT telling anybody? Is he just NOT interested in attending TC and so will show up the week before the season opener?
