    Kind of hoping BB starts spelling Vrabel with Crabel, parden the rhyme, but I think Vrabel is really showing his age. Same with Guyton, let's start spelling Bruschi with Guyton, it's time to start spelling these two.

    We should fire BB while we're at it, too. The magic is gone.

    I think they looked just the opposite, young and inexperienced

    but hey lets just keep saying the words young because it is a cliche that sounds good.

    I saw plenty of mistakes from young guys like Sanders, Merriweather, (I didn't neccesarily see them from Mayo but I bet he had his share too).

    And you're about as bad as some of the subhumans that hang out on ESPN and PFT messageboards spouting off about asteriks and cheating. You never say anything positive about the team and you b!tch and moan constantly. If you don't like this years team so much, why come here? The internet is full of message boards for you to surf, and I am sure you have more interests than the Patriots. Please, feel free. Leave.

    Really? Huh. 2-1 is jack sh!t? Shutting down your biggest rival is nothing? Oh, ok.

    This post will come back to haunt you.

    My nephew's Pop Warner team shut out their competitors' 24-0 this weekend. I gave his coach a call, he said he is willing to send his LB corp to the Pats. Is that young enough for everyone? If not, I can scout his little brother's PeeWee team next weekend. I know from chasing after that my little nephew the last family gathering, he never tires.

    Wait, are we calling the Chiefs a real NFL team?
    The Jesters are overrated as well IMO, that QB doesn't even know the damn playbook.....not that he'd study it.

    The Jets shut themselves down with idiotic playcalling, and I don't even think they are that good.

    Do you REALLY think the Chiefs and Jesters are good teams?

    PatsRule there is not such thing as an automatic win in pro sports. The New England Patriots do not have a magic birth right to win every Super Bowl.

    It's 1 game and that is my point. Looking at the posts on this board you'd think it was a Rams or Chiefs message board.

    Yes, they looked bad today. But you were calling them out for looking bad in preseason. If that's not the most knee jerk reaction I had ever seen, I don't know what is.

    I can't understand what some coaches are thinking.

    Pittsburgh neglecting to upgrade their OLine for so long. Coming back to bite em in the ass.

    New England neglecting to get some youth at LB for so long. Hurt us last year already, and will continue to hurt us this year.

    I wonder what kind of 40yrd dash Bruschi, Harrison, and Vrabel would run these days? Probably slower than some offensive linemen.

    The Team is NOT old, any longer.

    While no one has been looking, BB and SP have rebuilt the entire team in the past three years, while they have been winning. There are but three "oldtimers" on the Defense left.

    Tedy who now platoons, Rodney who was platooning after the loss of Tank Williams, and is now done; and larry Izzo whose play has been bypassed by several other ST players; and whose ST captaincy replacement was signed this past offseason. Sam Aikens will retire Larry this offseason, Harrison will retire, and Tedy might play as a sub and mentor for one more year, maybe. But even that is not clear. Vrabel's play is off because no one can do it alone, but he is not too old by the calendar.

    The only age left on Offense, is Kevin Faulk. The Offense is full of guys in their prime and youngsters. The Defense is even younger.

    This team is younger, by far, than any of the other Belichick teams of the dynastic run.

    I'll grant though this Team has lots of good talent on IR, and I DO NOT include Rodney in that category. Unlike other BB teasm ther are actully severlpositions that depth is not superb now.

    We could use a OLB and and ILB, and OL and a Safety. But all those positions and more, will be filled inthe draft this off-season. The NFL ought to beware.

    What this teams lacks from the championship years is the

    six linebacker rotation which kept everyone fresh. Every

    player in the rotation was a good linebacker so there was

    no drop off in production.

    Crable is out for year. I think the only reason why Crable hasn't played this year is because of a lagging leg injury. There is no reason to think he wouldn't be out on the field like Guyton and Mayo. He had a really good preseason. I think he will be next year's Lamar Woodley.

    we lack that but we also lack a good pass rusher or pass rushers(Colvin for all his criticism made plays) Vrabel is not his younger self.
