I am sure most of us fans want to see a great game after a less then lackluster preseason and I am glad the schedule helps us out here with a team like KC who most are picking to finish at or near the bottom of the standings. Not that I don't respect some of the KC players like Larry Johnson and Tony Gonzalez,Both of whom almost take over that offense by themselves but other than those 2 there is nothing to fear from their offense and the defensive front is sort of in transition from losing their best DE so not really worried about the KC defense being too formidable. While I expect a competitive game because I do think NE will be conservitive and run the ball alot to slowly get Brady into rhythm,I am glad the opposition is a much easier one than to face some of the better teams down the road and I expect a grind em out game with a win by about 7-10 points. Are you like me and happy to se the team face what appears to me a mediocre team in week 1 or did you want to see the team face a toughie like Indy or SD? - I would like the team to gel together a little before facing the better teams in the league because I really do not have any idea what type of team the 2008 Patriots will be right now.
