As for weapons, I think the demise of the Patriots last year was that they gave in to the pressure of setting cruise control instead of going wide open throttle. A mistake I don't think will be repeated this year.
Sucks to be the Pats....Brady is done for the year.

I know the feeling - I have the fantasy every year that the Rangers will make it to the World Series ... and I haven't done drugs since college back in the 70's!

No, seriously - I haven't!

Flashbacks Michael, flashbacks.....

The Steelers looked very crisp I have to say.
The Browns looked like their old selves, can't string together the good plays either on offense or defense, just flashes of knowing what they are doing.
The Pats, ouch.
The Bills.... when did they get good?
Gotta feel good for Atlanta and their new QB.
McNabb seems back in form in Philly.
Chicago beat Indy? Glad I don't wager anymore.

Yup, it sure looks that way. At least they got the "W".

This is turning into the biggest test year for the Patriots; we know how good Brady is, now we find out exactly how good Belichek is. He should know the strengths and weaknesses of Matt Cassel and the other backups and have a plan set to how to best use them. It's no secret the loss of Brady is devastating, but it doesn't need to be the end of the season already either.

Time will tell. I don't think there will be too many run ups (of the score) this year though.

What a change. I couldn't stand Michael Vick even before the dogfighting. This new guy was a breathe of fresh air and he really seemed to pull the team together.

Agreed, Mama. Michael Vick, aka Ron Mexico. had a lot of gray areas in his life he either wasn't very adept at camouflaging or didn't seem to care. Arther Blank didn't deserve that. He seems like a great owner.

I don't think he cared...it became pretty obvious what kind of person he was when he was charged with dog fighting and still strutted around with his head held high.
