    Is it time for the defense to shine? Can the defense carry us?
    Will they make Blake Bortles look like Blake Bortles?

    Please advise. :oops:

    I think we have a top defense, where we can play aggressive from the line, LBs and secondary. It just seemed to fall together somehow, with Gilmore turning into what was advertised and more, what I though was a weak pass rush filling out, even without the addition of Clayborn and health of the veteran LBs and a really good looking rookie LB.

    I'm sure management saw this, but it surprised me.

    Pats offense cannot turn the ball over and make it easier on Bortles.

    Pats need to stop the run and force Bortles into 3rd and longs.

    Bortles will not have the luxury of his dumping the ball to RB’s on 3rd downs as the Pats are at full strength at LB.

    Marquice Lee is a big loss for them.

    Looking forward to see the D line duplicate last weeks success.

    "I started running on it today," Fournette told reporters Thursday, via ESPN's Jeff Darlington. "It feels good. So that's progress. We'll see. It's a game-time decision... I like my chances more and more as the day has gone on."

    Don't know if our boys can do it even though they looked a lot better on Sunday than they did in February.

    I agree with whoever said that we cannot have any turnovers. We had 3 on Sunday! I think Brady is going to be more careful, our new PR won't muff a punt (hopefully), and Gronk is sooo not fumbling anything anymore this season (I hope, LOL).

    If we do that...I think the D is up to the challenge...might allow 1-2 TD's and 2-3 figgies...13-25 points...

    anytime anyone mentions Blake Bortles, I think of Jason Mendoza throwing a moltov.

    The answer to my question is NO.
    For now at least.
    What will the months to come bring us?
    Growth & improvement OR <<<gasp>>>
