I'm really excited about the eleven game regular season now that the preseason is over! We got a chance to rest Gronk and experiment with a zone defense this preseason. Gilmore also got to learn the basic defense and I'm excited about what he can do. On the downside, I really think the Patriots shouldn't have so many penalties in the last preseason game of the year. There isn't that same sense of discipline and cohesion with this roster across all three phases as the past few years. Hopefully, they got it out of their system heading into the regular season. Let's also pray they cut Solder before the regular campaign - that guy is horrible. I just wish they had played Jimmy G. a bit more if their line is going to be swiss cheese rather than earning their cheddar.
