    Brady's Feet in the pocket - Brady will show us if there is any problem with his mobility even though he is not the most mobile QB in the NFL but we all know how he stands in the pocket and shuffles his feet waiting a looking for an open receiver with presence of ongoing pressure - If he stumbles a bit or looks off balance in his throws then we should know the injury is still lingering - That is one thing I will be looking for on his first few throws,I think it would not be hard to see if there is an underlying problem since we have seen him stand tall in there thousands of times and know his normal movements by now.

    Seymour's presence on the front line - It has been a while since we have heard Seymour's name mentioned much more than just in the opening lineup because his injuries supposedly have been the reason why he is nearly a non factor in big plays on defense since 2005 and has not been a player who you hear mentioned much when there is a sack or a big play in the game since way back when - I want to see what Seymour himself says is a 100% healthy DE and I want to see if he can get back to his old dominating ways - If we hear his name on a few solid tackles or sacks early in the game then we will know he is back or at least is getting to that point - If he is invisible and not heard much from then who knows when or if he will come back around since the injury excuse is no longer an issue - Seymour is a guy worth watching closely early on.

    It's more valuable to watch Seymour than to listen to the commentators discuss him or follow his stats. If he's occupying 2+ defenders and helping to collapse the pocket to allow others to make plays, then he's being very effective.

    We'll know Brady's foot is fine if he isn't overthrowing his receivers like he was doing in the SB.

    Seymour said a while back that there's no comparison to how he feels this season compared to last. I'll definitely be interested in how he and the rest of the line play tomorrow.

    If seymour is effective A.D will have a monster game. seymour and ad line up against the left gaurd and left tackle.if the 3-4DE does his job the OLB will have big games.

    Just as long as we don't pay attention to his body language I'm fine.

    Agreed re: Seymour. He is THE key to the defense, make no mistake about it. If he reverts to his dominant self it opens lanes for AD, it creates havoc in the middle during runs, and it takes the pressure off the secondary because there are more bodies in the pocket putting pressure on the QB. I'm very excited to see what he brings to the table today.
