In looking at the new schedule I think the first month of the season for New England is going to be alarmingly critical. AFC playoff team Cincy and then our divison featuring Miami and New York on the road. Going into our week five bye I think we will know a lot about our team and their chances at the post season in the first quarter of the regular season. Let's hope for a fast, solid start. I don't think we can afford to be rusty or dealing with a learning curve. Just my opinion.
