My fandom & heart tells me I cannot wish for a tank. We are not Coltish scum.

My head is coming around to the idea, though. Sad.
I don't think it's in Bill's DNA. I think they'll win 6 or 7 total. Where does that put them? 8th? 10th ? Meh.

They only have 9 games left. You really think they can go 4-5 or 5-4 down the stretch?

Well the Panthers, Bears and Cardinals suck too much for us to get a top 3 pick in the draft but this certainly helps.

I hope he recovers well in order to sign a good deal, this is a good player.

What an absolute train wreck of a season.

Hope he heals up ok and is back on the 2024 team.
Only bright side here, this injury may make him very affordable to bring back on a 1 year deal.

Not unreasonable for him to be ready by week 1 next year. He'll have over 10 months

All I can think of is 2015-16 where we lost 3 or 4 pro bowlers. Mayo, Vollmer, and two others I can’t remember. Still barely lost to Denver on the road in the AFCCG.
2015 was - imo - one of the most complete amazing nE teams of all time. This is so far removed. I get what you’re saying, but…

Cardinals seem like they're hankering to win a few games, the way they've competed. Not to mention, Kyler is returning soon.

Feels like Bears/Panthers being 1-2 is very likely. But the Bears have the Panthers pick, and I could see them wanting to go QB/Marvin Jr. duo and not trading down.

They already have stacks of draft picks, and can flip Fields for a few nice draft picks.

The pats win total is 5.5. They should do everything they can at this point (trading assets, playing young players) to ensure a top 3 pick at this point. They are probably going 5-12 regardless.

Agree with this, but that’s a really tough sell for the players and coaches. Belichick won’t do it because he can’t ask players to give everything have, and then deliberately blow games. But as a fan I want a QB in the first 5 picks, so I want them to lose so they can get better.

Tough loss, more than him coming back to the Pats at a discount because of his injury, I hope he recovers well and is able to play in the NFL once again..

Looks pretty run of the mill.


I thought it might be dirty as well, as the db kind of flipped him over his leg when it looked like he could've just driven him out of bounds.

The dolphins players was lunging forward, all momentum was going one way... I can't see any dirtiness at all here

I think Bourne's foot get stuck a bit too long on the grass. Very unfortunate
