    More than two and a half hours to go until kickoff and I don't have any butterflies- they feel like bats. :D

    I think this will be a brutal game for both the offense and defense of both teams.

    SportsNation Polls - SportsNation - ESPN

    Every State has the Pats winning even Texas 57% Pats 43% Texans

    MA is 94% Pats

    Overall 80% got the Pats winning this one.

    Good thing BB does a great job blocking this kinda stuff out.

    Pats are on a mission, hoping for a statement game today.

    Wish the game was starting already.

    This team has been rebuilt and the core is young and ready to take the next step.

    I dunno but i suspect this game is going to be a lot closer than people think, especially if Schaub comes out throwing against our secondary

    Key to the game without a doubt is the O-Line, they give Brady enough time (as Atlanta s are giving Ryan) we win, if they wet the bed and Brady gets jitter feet....

    Schaub and kubiak according breer on nfln have been preaching "cut it loose" this week to his team. Expect them to come out be bold . Need to watch for fake punts and onside kicks and all that.

    Yup. The Texans have nothing to lose. But by that same token, neither do the Patriots. Might as well let it all out here.

    My nerves are also about shot. I dunno how I'm gonna make it through this game. :cool:

    I just voted for the Texans 18 times with different IP addresses to try and bring that down.

    It's 40 degrees here (Northern Cali) and I've washed both cars, drank 2 beers, cleaned the house, while watching the Seattle/Atl game. It isn't even noon here.


    I'm a nervous wreck

    After the devastating losses the past 8 years, I would think that I wouldnt stress out that bad, but no. I'm a nervous wreck now. It just feels to similar to 2010. Even the same schedule as we played the jets the last divisional game.

    On the PAT attempt are we going to not use gronk or Hernandez so they don't have another possibility of getting injured?
