The Pats have always seemed like the most prepared team in the NFL on any given Sunday, and I realize they have a very young team but does anyone think they seem to constantly start slow lately? I don't know if it's part of the new practice rules which as of last year are more limited than in years prior, but they seem more out of synch than they normally do. Specifically, that back and forth conversation Brady had with the OL yesterday where it was clear they weren't really on the same page as to what's going on. I can't ever remember seeing that. It seems like a Belichick-coached team would be the first to suffer from a reduction in the amount of allowed preparation, I just hope that if it's true they can make up for it as the year goes on like they seemed to last year.
