    If I had to put $ on it, I would put it on O.Connell.

    BB's normal defensive philosophy is to take away the thing you do best. Against the also-ran QBs that do so surprisingly well against us, that's usually the running game.

    The preseason philosophy, meanwhile, is to take nothing away and see what floats and what sinks.

    I dunno.

    I have watched every second of all 4 preseason games and O'Connell is my pick :eek: Trying not to get to excited about the kid because he will never get the chance to play, but I like him.

    I think what you are trying to say is why all these veteran QB's have done well against our vanilla D this preseason. I think Griese said it best when interviewed during the game we played @ Tampa. More than most teams the Pats are extremely basic in the preseason, as he said "yeah, those guys save the good stuff for the season."

    Hm. I think he's still #3 developmental and Gutz is the back-up. That's too big of a what if, unless the coaches have been stunned by his awesomeness (doubting it).

    I can't remember the last time I saw a pass defended, let alone an interception this preseason.
