you-know-what. The Patriot's have fallen on hard times? Huh? 2-0 and that's hard times? Do they have areas they need to work on? Absolutely, Brady has to get comfortable and get his timing down pat with his new corps of receivers. As Belichick said they need to practice consistency because you can't keep having one good half and one bad and expect to beat the best teams. Let downs aren't acceptable and I'm sure Belichick is going to pound that this week before Denver comes to town. But...there were some very positive signs as well. Chad Jackson? Looks to be very good once he's in the groove with Brady. I didn't think we'd see the kid until Christmas. Bruschi was back cast and all and doing a great job. Harrison is back there directing traffic as he should be. The D-Line is working it. Every game they should get better, more polished and their schedule won't be the killer that last year's was. All in all a lot of positives but, of course, Borges has to state the Apocolypse is at hand. All last week we heard shrieks of dismay that we had no WR's and then, like a rabbit out of a hat, Jackson appears. Do you suppose Belichick was smirking in his office as talk radio blabbed on and on about their perceived weaknesses? Come on, let's take one game at a time and try not to over react every time the media tries to create some "disaster of the week". Belichick certainly doesn't. And, relating to nothing else in this thread how many doughnuts has Mangini been eating lately? He looked enormous!
