    This is exactly what we needed.

    While watching Air-Brady humiliate teams by the end of the first half has been really fun, it just isn't sustainable. We shouldn't be relying on Brady to put up 400 yards and 6 touchdown passes week after week, game after game, against every defense in the league. More importantly, it gets him hurt!

    I don't miss O'Briens offense at all and it's great to have McDaniels back.

    Torching opposing defenses with nothing but passes has its entertainment value but it puts our defense on the field too often and leaves us going into the post season with a beat up Tom Brady who, by that time, is no longer 100% because of the beating he takes through out the season by standing in the pocket every possession scanning for receivers with a horde of nasty pass rushers gunning for his career.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing this offense take form as we go forward into the season.

    What we need is sustained drives. Ridley looks like he can give us this. This running game is going to keep our offense on the field, our defense fresh and off the field, OUR QUARTERBACK HEALTHY, and while we'll still be putting up over 30 points a game, we'll be much better at dominating the time of possession. This is a championship formula. We'll still throw bombs, we'll still have the most elite passing attack in the National Football league, we'll be a tall order to stop in the red zone, but our offense won't be off the field after 4 or 5 15 to 20 yard passes for a touchdown, leaving our defense to get stuck on overtime duty and gas every game.

    We can do so much this year. It's really exciting. We can eat up the clock, we can torch teams through the air. I think after everything starts to click in post-Thanksgiving football, we'll really be able to do whatever the hell we want.

    Unlike the very over rated Packers, our offense isn't designed to just pad stats and look good against weak football teams - our offense is designed to be incredibly difficult to stop. Elite quarterback, weapons all around, complete unpredictability, very dynamic, and the ability to control the ball and have a much greater say in the time of possession on top of it all.

    Everyone calling for Belichick's head last year, after an over achieving Patriot team was lead to the Superbowl on the back an injured #12, can enjoy their plate of crow. The last pieces of the puzzle have been put into place and it's going to be a very tall order for the AFC to keep us out of the Superbowl this year.

    I know some people don't want to hear that this early (don't worry, I knocked on wood), but the facts are the facts, and the fact is THIS is the offensive style that will produce rings. This is what did it for us during the Dynasty years, and this is what was missing during 2007.

    As always, the sports-media will be stuck in last season until week #3 or #4, but before long, mark my words, they'll come around, they'll start talking, and the lemming fans around the country will start nervously repeating it. NFL fans from shore to shore are going to realize that the Patriots are once again the undisputed lords of the AFC and there's not a damn thing they'll be able to do about it.

    1 potential problem: What if Joshy gets another HC offer at the end of the season?

    (You said championships)

    Offense...this D can have a chance to give us a ring as well if they start to mesh more and more

    Yeah, we'll at least be a top ten unit this year defensively, maybe even top 5.
    It's going to be great for Wilfork now that he's surrounded by other capable pass rushers. If teams have other people to worry about and can't just double team him all day and all night, i'm expecting him to make quarterback-pancakes a lot this season. Our front seven is full of play makers.

    More over, with sustained, long, methodical offensive drives, this defensive squad is going to be able to take the field fresh a lot and that should produce a lot of 3 and outs for us.

    While I do agree that TB shouldn't be carrying this O on his back and throwing for 400+ yards a game, he's still going to be the nucleus of the offense. If we want to get back to hoisting the Lombardi, our O-line has to do our job effectively. Though I do like what I saw from the D and the run game yesterday.

    Slow your roll turbo.

    They played a rookie, on a team without a bunch of weapons, and a running back who has been terrible since signing his new contract.

    The defense played well, but lets not act like they just dismantled the Packers offense or something.

    I highly doubt JM will get a job offer at the end of the year. And even if he did, I don't think he'd take it. This is just like what happened to BB. And you know what, I have strong feeling that when BB retires and JM succeeds him, JM will not be handing in his resignation on a paper towel.

    And you are basing this on beating the almighty Tennessee Titans?

    Lets see what they do in Baltimore in 2 weeks before we crown them champs.

    Can't wait for the Ravens game tonight. I really think the Bengals have a shot at winning.

    Well the personnel is different this year. It remains to be sen how this year's line develops as a run blocking unit.


    BTW I don't recall anyone calling for BB head last year.

    From what I've seen yesterday, the balance of the offense is very pleasing. Brady was very efficient and Ridley was pounding and pounding mercilessly. Lloyd looked awesome though, no doubt he is the real #1 WR. He can get a lot of yards in one catch which helps the offense b/c it gives the D another option to defend. Deion was the weak link last year as the #2 WR, and Lloyd is just a breath of fresh air. The tight ends were good as always. But hopefully, a #2 RB has to step up and provide some speed to complement Ridley's power.

    The most optimistic fact for this team is that last year, as bad as the defense was, the defense managed to help the team win in games where Brady struggled (in 2010, Brady needed a perfect performance and a few fortunate TOs for the team to win). And that team had WRs playing as DBs. Now look at what they have. This team will definitely impress this year and beat the team to beat in the AFC.

    Yeah, the early December 2010 45 - 3 kill of the Jets, followed by 3 easy wins in the remaining 4 games, and what happened in the playoffs still sticks in my craw.

    Agreed. As excited as I was to watch both the "new" offense and defense yesterday, I'll be skeptical until the Baltimore game.

    What overrated Packers (offense)? It's dominant for chrissake.

    Or it was. They need to develop a running game this year, but aside from that they are dominant. Why does being dominant mean padding stats? Did Brady and Moss pad stats? I mean if you are THAT GOOD then you are going to dominate.

    The Pack have defensive issues and I don't expect them to win their division, but they will light up defenses that can't defend the pass. Are you kidding me?

    Not sure what your point is. Mine is that one game of more running isn't necessarily proof of a change of philiosphy, otherwise it has happened a lot of times every year.

    Exactly where is the craw? I know I have something stuck in mine but I'm not quite able to floss it.

    The offense's success starts or ends with the play of the O-Line.

    Overall I was pleased by what I saw. They were effective in setting up both the run and the pass - and although they were far from perfect, they allowed Brady and the offense to execute.

    It will take time for them to develop, and Brady will suffer some bruises along the way - and you can never underestimate what good health and depth mean to the success of the O Line and the Offense.

    But overall let's not get too high over the first win - there's tougher challenges than the Titans on the horizon, starting with the next game.

    Kudos to the OL and I expect Vereen to cut into the carry total later. Bad for fantasy players or stats freaks, but Ridley would have better legs in January with only 200 carries under his belt.
