    There seems to be a lot of worrying going on here. Several threads have people worrying about one thing or another: Seymour, Moss, Samuel, old LB's, WR's, TE's, OL.

    So I though that it would be good for the mental health of the board to put all the worrying on one thread. Maybe others can help calm the worrying.

    My worry is opening with a divisional rival on the road. I remember the Buffalo game in 2003 all to well.

    OK, what is your worry?:scared:

    Bless you, Patnut. I worry the Pats are not telling us everything about injuries.

    Dose Moss really still have two legs? I'm not saying he's had one amputated, but can you verify he hasn't? Huh, huh???!!!

    And Seymour, I think he's injury prone. Why every time two 300 lb. linemen try to smash him to the ground he ends up with some sort of knee, ankle, elbow or shoulder injuries.

    Maybe he has brittle bones.

    I know after the second two a day on that 97 degree day just about every player was walking slowly and gingerly toward the locker room. I think they all have shin splints, hammy's and torn ACL's.

    I feel somewhat comfortable at WR with Troy and Chad Johnson on the PUP and Kight and Bam with some familiarity, but i wonder, is 13 receivers really enough?:(

    I'm really worried now, I hope you can reassure me our seasons not on the brink of disaster Patsnut.

    Things I've been concerned about but not really anymore.

    1) Maroney's ability to be a #1 back.

    2) The running game, in general.

    3) Offensive Line (still not quite feeling great, but Carolina has a good front 4 and they didn't get anywhere near Brady).

    4) Secondary without Asante.

    5) Depth at safety with Meriweather needed in the slot.

    Things I'm still concerned about.

    1) Tedy Bruschi's play (I will always love him, but his coverage abilities are slipping and he's not shedding blocks the way he used to).

    2) Moss's health.

    3) Brady's long ball.

    4) McDaniels staying committed to the run this season.

    5) Adalius Thomas adjusting to the Mike spot.

    6) Maintaining a consistent pass rush against good offensive lines. We've underachieved there in the past few years.

    7) Turnover differential. Why was it so poor last year?

    Nut, I had the same thought as I sat through the Giants-Jets game Saturday night. I kept saying out loud, "What the hell are the Jets doing?" They were so milque toast in their offensive approach I was shocked. The defense played only marginally better.

    They looked as bad as I want them to play so now I am terrified.

    I got to agreee with grizzafted.

    I know everyone here loves Bruschi but I have been watching him closely in the preseason film and he is getting handled or is a step or to late to plug the hole and cover. Sorry but it had to be said.

    That is not worrying. That is acute paranoia, believe me I know.

    Disable Jersey

    My worries ranked from most serious to least...

    Yet again the injury bug bites hard, where we're most vulnerable
    We cut a DL who helps the Colts
    The flu season strikes again
    We cut another fringe 53 player, OG whatever, that helps the JETS
    A meteor hits

    In the first home game against San Diego with 5 seconds left and the score 14-13 SD, Moss catches an 80 yard bomb from Brady and is alone running toward the end zone as the artificial turf that was too hastily installed last season curls up on the corners and folds over on itself and the players preventing anyone from seeing the result as time runs out.

    The problem is all the Red Sox First - Patriots Second Fans on this site. Last year, the problem was that the Red Sox tanked early, and they all came here to whine. This year, there hasn't been much to whine about the Red Sox so far, so they are back here in force again.

    Here's to a series sweep by the Yankees. That should keep them busy for a few weeks.

    Mine is not actually a worry rather than anxiety.

    I don't want to see the Chargers win in Gillette and dance on our field. It'll make me vomit in my mouth.

    Reasons:

    #1 I currently hate them more than any other team because I think they're a ****y bunch of undisciplined punks.

    #2 I don't wany their fans on here for 17 or 18 weeks acting all ****y, until we of course once again get retribution when it counts. The playoffs.

    Other than that, I have supreme confidence in our team. No worries.

    Injuries. Period.

    Anyone. Everyone.

    It's what usually prevents the best teams on paper from being the best teams in reality. Older LBs aren't necessarilly any more prone to injury than any other key position on the team.

    Our ability to stay healthy, and especially be healthy going into the playoffs is what is most important.
