I, for one, cannot wait for all this roster crap to go by the way side for a real game!! What do you think the Pats will do for the first game? I assume Brady will play (if not, I guess all bets are off). Do you think they will defer if they win the coin toss? Answer - I know BB said he would, but with the way opposing offenses have been marching off 10 minute drives against us to start the (preseason) games, I think he might take the kickoff and try to score first. Do you think they will run the ball more and try to protect Brady? Or will they go to the aerial attack and try to run up the score early in order to pull Brady late in the game? Answer - this one's harder. On the one hand, I think they'll go right back to the aerial attack, esp. against a perceived weak opponent, perhaps to show everyone that we will be just as formidable this year. On the other hand, they did seem to be trying to establish a committee running attack in preseason. For the first game I think they will start out with a little running, then go to the aerial attack and hope they can put up a good amount of points. Brady hasn't even played so it will be tough for him to go a whole game. Score early and often and hope the D can finally stop someone will be the plan for this game so they can take Brady out in the 4th quarter and then let Cassell hand it off, probably to Lamont Jordan. I think the ball control offense will come later in the season. How do you think the O Line will do? I guess my answer above will change if Brady is getting hammered! The O line looked a little better last week with Matt Light back in, and Brady does a much better job than Cassell of stepping up into the pocket to throw quickly. I think Brady will be okay and will rely a lot on Welker and other short passing routes if things get bad. What do you think of LoMo? He has been a disappointment to me. I know the O-line hasn't been great, but he looked to be doing the same things he did a lot last year and the year before - running straight ahead and if anyone is there, getting dropped quickly. He doesn't run with any imagination, IMO. I hope he is better this year, but I like the addition of Lamont Jordan to help him out. Sammy Morris seemed sort of invisible to me during camp. What say you?
