    Personally I believe with the camps being easier I would think we will see them more than in the past.

    Of course the counter to that would be they're not quite as ready because of the easier camps so we'll see them less.

    The only thing i'll be intersted in is to see what we will be doing on defense.

    The real question is..will the pats lose a preseason game and will everyone on here freak out and say the season is lost..the answer is yes.

    Against the Jags I'd rather see Mallett/Hoyer instead of Brady, we all know what #12 can do...let's see what #15 can do! :D

    Main thing I will be watching though is the defense, I really hope it is a 4-3 but that's because I prefer it to the 3-4.

    As for the starters I think they will get the usual 1-2 series then come out. Some of the WR's may get longer though to get used to the system a bit more (Ochocinco mainly)

    I know! I was hoping to find an Arena Football game (I like the gimmickyness of it), but I couldn't find anything :(

    I do not want to see much of the starters - and would be fine with NOT seeing Brady at all. I have a feeling the first pre-season game is going to be a real mess. Worse than usual. Injuries a bigger concern than usual. Sloppy = risk. You can't just practice for three weeks, with no practices in the off-season, no mandated workout regimes, nothing - and think everything will be peachy. It won't be.

    I beleive we will see more of the starters than usual to guage just how far behind the team is with limited practice time.

    I see the starting O getting a series or 2. Maybe guys like Welker and Branch play a couple more downs with the other QB's. Tough to say what will happen on defense, cause nobody really knows who the starters are. Maybe a steady stream of the new vets with the younger guys in the first half. I think we will have a better indication on who exactly is fighting to make the roster based on how late they are left in the game. BB certainly won't be giving much away as to what he is planning on doing in the regular season on the DL. We will only be able to speculate.

    Then there is always the counter-counter and it will be the same as usual.

    I agree, but if they bring them along slowly until they are in game shape I'm fine with that too.

    Just as long as the board isn't a panicked mess if they start out slowly once the season starts. Yeah right, who am I kidding.
