    I think we did this last year as well - your play calling prediction of the first offensive play of the season...

    There's lots of directions to go of course, and in all likelihood it will probably be a vanilla, handoff to Dillon or Maroney

    But that's not a lot of "fun" for the purpose of this thread - and if I'm BB, I know that that's what the other teams are expecting, so maybe he mixes it up a bit

    So what would the first play YOU'D run on offense - deep route to Watson?

    I'm thinking something still a little bit vanilla - a pass to Kevin Faulk while the D is keying on Dillon, Maroney, and Watson.

    I'd LOVE it if Graham or Thomas were in on that first play as well, but I'm thinking short pass to Faulk, with a nice gain after the catch.

    Dillon. Run to the left for 4.

    This is fun, Joe. Too bad more posters don't input.

    C'mon guys!

    I'm going to go with a ten yard out to Reche Caldwell.

    Patriots open in 2 TE formation with 2 WRs and Dillion in the backfield. And the pass goes to Daniel Graham over the middle!!! Watson decoys the FS deep up the seam...

    So you think BB will just do the obvious? You stand a good chance of being right.

    Of course, I don't suppose you think there's any chance he'd keep Dillon (or Maroney for that matter) on the sidelines for the entire first series?

    That could NEVER happen!

    If the Patriots want to set the tone straight for the season.
    The only play that should be called is a quick pass to Troy.
    Very symbolic and very deserved.

    However...I'm with Joker...it will be off tackle...hopefully O'Callahan's side.

    Yes! Exactly! But don't forget the mean block that Graham will lay on the Bufflao DE to set up the 15 yard 1st down run.
