    That's a lot of responsibility given to a rookie who hardly practiced. And he's done very well with it. Great surprise.

    Someone fill me in

    I know you guys are breaking down the game everywhere and feel free to move this. Just DVRd the game and instead some music channel was on auto record (never get verizon fios, they couldn't even inform me of that pre recording). Missed every snap and see Brady had 500, seriously he decides to be aggressive fr the first game I miss all decade.

    Who started on D specifically at safety and what where the big moments? Why did the D give up 24? Sorry but I'm pissed and need some closure before school tomorrow, it's been 7 months and I miss Brady's best game yardage wise. I need to find a copy this week.

    He can play. The guy can play. I am happy with him. I hope we don't get a short corner again.

    7 basically came off of a fluke int. Another 7 late in the game. Overall a good start for the D. Its only week one and they looked good outside of the first drive.

    wait but he was injured early in camp and looked "lost" when he finally started practicing. I thought he was a bust?

    Thanks, not bad, they should bring it at home vs a good SD offense.

    Dowling & Solder's performances were rather pleasing tonight.

    Re: Someone fill me in

    Dude, we gave up 400+ yards to Chad Henne. I don't care if he had to play catch up all game, that's unnacceptable. The word "good" should not be mentioned in the same sentece as "defense" today. Actually, the run defense was very solid, so the above basically applies to the pass defense only.

    re: the official post game thread

    I thought Dowling should move to safety, but now I might be changing my mind. For a rookie with limited playing time in the preseason, he played exceptionally well.

    Re: Someone fill me in

    I agree. The Dolphins had a ton of yards but I think that's more their execution than the Patriots playing horribly. I really can't remember a lot of instances where players looked horribly out of place. Miami couldn't run the ball after the first drive either.

    Re: Dowling!

    As great as the Patriots O looked, the thing that stuck out the most was the horrendous officiating. Anyone who thinks the refs weren't instructed to keep the game close is kidding themselves.

    This could turn out to be another fantastic draft class, and we haven't even seen the RBs yet.

    Some will lament the yardage against : but I felt better about the backfield than in the last few years.

    Re: Someone fill me in

    I don't care about yards. I care about points allowed. They let up 17 points when the game meant anything and one of the TDs was a ten yard drive. You look back at the dynasty era and the Pats gave up a lot of yards, but few points. There has never been a game where a team lost it by outscoring the opponent, but getting less yards.

    Yes. I would have predicted seeing some Ridley - but they went Woodhead a lot.

    Re: the official post game thread

    I wonder if Haynesworth will get a fine for the punch, palm to the head of the guy who was trying to twist his knee at the goal line play. Did anybody see that? I am glad the crew kept quiet on it. Could have hurt us big time.

    Re: the official post game thread

    Can I get a shout out for some Red Zone defense?

    And at one point the Pats were doing great on 3rd down D. I know the numbers look pretty but at some point the O has to just take some time off the clock and give the D a rest. I'm not surprised they gave up so many 4th quarter yards. They had a great goal-line stand and then Brady has the nerve to score on one play and put them right back out there.

    Re: the official post game thread

    Maybe the guy twisting his knee should get the fine.

    What difference would it make if the 'crew' commented on it? Didn't help us any on that PI non-call and didn't help Miami with Gruden and Jaws practically begging the Phins D to make a big play.

    Re: The official Post game thread

    Weird game. It seemed like it should have been a blowout and not close, but it really was closer than what it should have been.

    Brady looked like he's on a mission.

    Haynesworth is a beast. Holy crap. If he keeps this up...

    Solder was good. For a rookie, in his first game, it was incredible.

    Dowling surprised me. He was super competitive out there.

    TE's awesome too.

    One downside I saw was our game management on offense. Pretty weird. It was like me playing Madden on easy mode and killing the computer, accumulating yards, but never putting the game away because of bad game management.

    Total yards with 8 minutes left was 260.

    Some of you must be brain dead.

    I would say the "soft", prevent needs work.
