    I haven't watched a single preseason game. I haven't even seen highlights or stats. I just don't care. And then I come on here and it seems like every day there's another 3 page thread saying how pathetic we look or why we should be concerned. Please tell me I'm not the only one who doesn't care about what we're doing right now.

    Sept. 7 against KC... that's all I'm worried about.

    You aren't the only one but there aren't many of us. That said, I am worried about when Light makes it back.

    They said on WBCN that Light is really itching to get back. He was in the lockerroom the other day when the media was there which is usually a sign he is close to coming back and practicing. My guess he starts practicing early next week.

    Awesome news, thanks. He's been around so long he'll only need about a week of contact to be ready.

    Am I worried about the season being in jeopardy based on preseason games? - Absolutely not

    Have I seen anything,just the slightest thing from the STARTERS to say I am confident the team will be the best in the league again? - NO, I have seen little positive so far to be 100% sure of it.

    Right in the middle is where in reality,everyone should be so far because we have seen NOTHING compared to what we will see in September, - Does that mean the team will be 100% better? - Who knows? except the big man upstairs

    I watch pre-season to get early looks at rookies and newcomers that I have hopes for. I don't know what the hell has gotten into all the chiken littles.

    Well, I wouldn't say I completely don't give a **** as I flip back and forth between them and the Red Sox when both are on and on days the Red Sox aren't on, I watch the entire game (Baltimore game was an off day for the Sox, I believe). So I care about it a bit and would like to see some better play.

    But there are a lot of reactionary, over the top posters here recently and I clearly don't care about the pre-season as much as they do, nor am I worried about the team based on this pre-season.

    I'm in the middle of the "I don't give a **** until September 7th" crowd and the "OMG! THE PATS SUCK, BLOW IT UP" crowd; but certainly far closer to the former.

    you should be concerned about preseason games because it will tell you how well our new players perform. When our team has a lot of injuries at OL, it's good to know that our new guys can be dependable.

    Time is running out for us. If they don't step up and our injured players don't get better, we are in a big trouble.

    players get better as the season goes on just because someone has a bad day in august does not mean they cant help this team during the season, some of these players will not even be on the team come sept 7 anyways

    Not concerned here, as long as Brady is out. In fact, I think its a good thing for the team. Allows Cassel to be exposed so Pats can establish Matt G. as firm #2.

    I wasn't even aware there was a game yesterday until I checked the board this morning. I can't imagine a more boring, meaningless time than the preseason. Yeah, it really handcuffed the Colts, going 0-4 in 2006.

    Count me in as another person don't give a damn. I view NFL preseason the same way I view MLB spring training: It doesn't mean squat and in both cases, rarely a good indicator of how the real season's going to play out.

    I'm not worried about the games, I'm more worried about the injuries. Injuries to (at least) 40% of our starting oline, rib injury for welker now, merriweather, obviously Brady's uncertainty. I couldnt care whether cassel takes a snap turns around and throws it backwards. I'm sure BB will handle the situation when the situation needs to be handled. However, BB cannot control injuries, and that's what worries me.

    The basement dwellers are out in full force. Pre season games are for figuring out who the 5 or 6 guys (at lest in the Pats case) on the bubble are that will actually make the team.
    Most of our roster has been set for a long time now. Injuries are the wildcard in all of this. And our QB has not played yet. Yes, what is behind Tom is not great and when he does not play, we are less of a quality team. The same can be said of the Colts, Saints, Steelers etc.
    If you really think that a 16-0 team is going to suck the next year, without a significant talent tunrover (Assante aside) then you don't really know much about football or understand how our coach operates.
    I'd be happy with 12-4 or 13-3 and a home playoff game or two.
    I just want to be in a position at the end of the year where we have a good shot at the Superbowl. What happens in August, other than injuries, is of little consequnce.

    I love watching the preseason because it gives me a chance to see the newbies mixing it up with our vets, and seeing how that might play out in the upcoming season. Not "worried" about games that are really just exercises in tutoring new players and seeing how they might best help.

    I'm a little concerned about the vets on our "O" line and when that might jell back up. Brady doesn't need any more body slams!

    I never watch pre-season. I don't have enough time in my life to pay attention to something that doesn't matter. Hurry the f#%k up, Sept 7th!

    Add me to the list of people who haven't even watched an exhibition game. These games are jokes.

    The problem is that those of us who are unconcerned with exhibition games also post less in the preseason than those who are currently flipping out.
