    I don't know if it was how we lost the AFCCG which we had never done before or if it was all of the news during the offseason that you heard over and over again (PacMan,Vick,Thurman,NFL disability squabble hearings,Endless draft predictions ect) but this 2007 NFL offseason is by far IMO the longest EVER in my 29 years of watching this sport.

    Does it not seem like it is to you as well?

    Glad august has nearly arrived and the boys have to put those pads on again!! :rocker:

    Not for me, it seems like yesterday that the f*cking game ended.

    anticipation of the shock and awe weapons on offense and anticipation of a healthy reloaded defense, it seems to good to be true, let the games begin

    Personally this offseason has gone pretty quick. Last year I felt like I kept waiting for some big time free agency splashes that never came. This year however there was plenty of that. Here we go again...

    Have to agree with you there.

    Where the hell did February, March, April, May, June, and July go? I don't even remember what I did during those months - probably because most of them were spent eagerly anticipating free agency, the draft, minicamp, and now training camp.

    It's flying by for me too. The older I get the faster it goes except the lag between SB36 and the next season. That seemed to take forever.

    I think it went quickly too. I think it was because we made so many offseason moves that the local media actually paid attention to the Patriots for much of the offseason. WEEI wasn't all Red Sox all the time this spring like it usually is. In March and April, the Pats actually dominated the airwaves for large portions of that month.

    I usually think the offseason lags when I can't get my Pats' fix on the radio or in the papers.

    Each year for the past few I've become more and more of a Pats Fan. As I get more into it, the offseasons get longer and looooongeerrrrr. Thankfully, this place exists.

    Longest off season for me was when we acquired Dillon. I was sooo excited.

    The older you get the faster time seems to go by. But I can understand it seemingly going slower I too want to see all the new toys in action. :rocker:

    The last month has been the longest for me. After the game which shall not be mentioned, the wait for FA was long, but not as long as this. March and April went by quickly. As did May. Once mini-camp came and went, though, the time has ticked ever so slowly.

    In a word...YES...I have been sick to my stomach since the last Patriot game and need this new season to begin.
