    Gronk did not make the trip which is not shocking news to anyone.

    Let's hope for a good game, with no injuries, and a Patriots victory.

    Can't wait until the patriot rookie receivers shock the world.

    Everyone thinks the offense will under perform.

    Maybe only one will play unless we're counting Studfeld, which I count. With Washington back on the 53 I wonder if we'll see Boyce take a KR? Then again, we might only get kicked to once today. :)

    I'm a little ill at ease too.

    Totally new receiving crew.

    That bad performance against the Lions.

    The Bills have some good offensive weapons and a QB who could run and throw well.

    Our D didn't really add a monster pass rusher, as I wanted them to do.

    Now let me be clear. I think they are going to win and win big today. But I am somewhat nervous given all of the above.

    Anyone know who the TV announcing crew is?

    NFL gameday said the Pats had the 31st ranked defense. Which is odd because they haven't even played yet, nor was it 31st last year.

    Never let facts get in the way of a good story.



    A few days ago I heard Cris Carter (I know, big mistake) say 'the Patriots had the 29th ranked defense in points allowed', and then he quickly corrected himself to say yards allowed.

    I found it ironic because that slip would have been a perfect opportunity for either Carter or one of the other panelists to jump in and point out the discrepancy in the two rankings.

    Very predictably, not a single one of them did so. I presume it was equal parts of that line not being in the script, and their being so superficial in their preparation for their analysis.

    Jairus Byrd has now officially been ruled out, in case there was any doubt.



    Based on the roster and players already known to be inactive thus far, the Patriots will be going into today's game with just 3 safeties, 2 tight ends, and 3 defensive tackles.

    3 DTs could come back to bite them, the Bills run the no huddle now so getting stuck with Kelly & Wilfork on the field for a long period of time will be trouble late in the game.

    So force lots of 3 and outs please :D

    Roster note, per SMY:

    from last night: via NFL transaction wire, Patriots released Jermaine Cunningham & Justin Francis from IR with injury settlements ​




    Game Day roster note:

    Leon Washington is the final inactive today ​

    Disappointed with Dobson. I'm betting at this point that he will in fact have a "Vereen" year and that you won't see meaningful contribution from him until next year. Which leaves the team thin at receiver this year unfortunately.

    I'm expecting a significant number of Bills turnovers (3) that will alter the game in our favour.
    So glad today is finally here. Hate to see the summer end but the big upside to that is that Pats football starts. I have cleared the decks for the day and it's 100% football, all day. Love it!
