    Fred Kirsch announced it during Tuesday's PFW in Progress; he said it would be done by 8 AM Thursday morning. Apparently it's already happening, because their site now just shows a message that they're updating.

    My guess is that the Pats are the latest to join the NFL's new internet network (think's), where sites have a similar - but not the same - layout and design, which started last fall with Here's a little more on the program from the Bills: launches new look and feel

    So far, I'd say about 1/3 of teams have switched. Some examples are,,,,,, etc.

    I haven't really liked that much. I think that it tries to do TOO much and ends up looking too busy and confused. I welcome the change.

    I agree. Since they last changed it, I've hardly gone there. Way too confusing and way too slow, even on a DSL connection. One of the reasons sites like PFT and PatsFans do so well is they're simple and they're fast.

    It's up. It still isn't widescreen like the other new sites, and the roster and depth charts are still in their strange old format, but it's a start...

    Meh, taking a look through it wasn't that much of an upgrade, at least so far. I'm sure we've seen the NFL internet network overhaul quite yet. All of the menubar navigation is the same. The only things that have changed are the color scheme and the headline/video area.

    It still needs a lot of work to have a more intuitive menu structure and access to information.

    I'm also not a huge fan of the jump page before the home page; none of the other new sites have that.

    I'd imagine that it's going to be tweaked around for a bit. Does look a bit better compared to the previous layout. Anyone know if the Proshop is going to get a new look to it? If anything the Revs stuff needs to let you narrow things down to jerseys, shirts, etc.

    Cautiously optimistic.

    It would be hard to imagine they could make it worse than the Drive-in movie multiplex on Mars theme they've been using for the front page.

    Is it still left justified for you guys? I've never seen it centred in all my visits there.

    Friggin annoying and childish to say the least.

    I was rather impressed with the bills sites lighter color scheme and cleaner layout. This "new" seems like a rounded interface, new background, not really all that impressed then again I rarely visit so it doesn't make the biggest difference to me. I was hoping they would use a template like the bills site (something more standardized that all nfl teams would use) it would be quite a overhaul instead of a upgrade as for the click here to visit homepage that is somewhat annoying along with the site not being centered. Ah well :cool:

    If they aren't providing us full screen coach's tape video I'll still say bad things about their mothers.
