    #75 Jersey

    Please post your comments, knee jerk reactions, and insightful observations regarding tonight's Patriots vs Giants pre-season game.

    Of special note is that the game is scheduled for 7PM instead of the usual 7:30.

    The most important thing about the game tonight is that there are no injuries.

    Enjoy the game.:rocker:

    The talk is that a lot of the starters, including Brady and Gronkowski, will be sitting this one out. For those looking to get a long look at the bubble guys, this game's apparently going to be perfect for you. :)

    Brady's out running WR routes, making it unlikely that he'll be playing, according to Howe and Reiss

    Or he thinks he has a shot of making the roster as a WR :p

    That would solve the mystery as to why Gaffney was cut.....

    One of the things for us to look at is how much playing time Hoyer gets. As I mentioned, if he gets at least 3 quarters, then I will wager that the Patriots are trying to trade him.

    I also hope we get an extended look at Demps returning the ball, not Arrington, McCourty, or God forbid, Hernandez.

    Brady & Hernandez just came onto field in full uniform...could be just a ruse

    As much as I like the sound of Vollmer being back....can we see more of Mallett & Hoyer and less of Brady please?


    ...there's something I never thought I'd type!

    Hoyer was fitted for a body cast prior to the game.

    Marcus Cannon needs all the game reps at right tackle that he can get prior to the regular season.

    I would like to see a lot more of Mallett. He, not Hoyer is apparently the one that will take over from Brady when that time comes and it might be a lot sooner than most people think especially if they win another Super Bowl this season.

    Am I alone in wanting to see Brady play a quarter? I just would feel a lot better about things seeing the starters put together a couple nice drives.

    Zolak asked BB about the cuts. I'm reading into it (admittedly), but BB mentioned guys who couldn't participate in everything and the possibility that players could come back later, so I'm guessing* that's an insight into Gaffney returning if/when his quad is better.



    * It's just a guess. BB was not specific.

    I think this is what a few of us were thinking (hoping) all along. I don't think Gaffney has shown us much in his preseason games but its hard to deny the connection he had with Brady, especially in the 06 playoffs.

    Mallett more likely gets the "star-dudded" trio of Holley, Taylor, Ebert.

    Honestly, the player I want to see the most of is Demps, I want to see how quickly he's picking up our playbook, hopefully he's just a case of needing to study and refamiliarize himself since he spent last season with Weiss, as opposed to completely relearning a new system like most do.

    I certainly hope so. It does make sense that Ballard's impending IR status makes it necessary to cut one player prior to the final cutdown who you'd otherwise keep on the 53, since Ballard needs to make it to avoid waivers (or does the PUP designation circumvent this entirely?. Also makes sense that Gaffney could be the guy, since he's a) hurt, b) familiar with the system, and c) pocketed his signing bonus a couple of months ago, so he gets 25% of what he's scheduled to make even if his salary is unguaranteed and he doesn't play a down for us.
