Can We Be Excited About 2018 Patriots Now?

The Patriots’ preseason win over the Eagles was a different viewing experience for me as I got tied up down the cape on a beautiful and perfect day and had to listen to the first half in the car on the way home. I actually kind of enjoyed it. Obviously, Dan Roche and Matt Chatham know their stuff and are fun to listen to but it was also a bit of a throwback to the old days when catching a Patriots game didn’t always trump everything else. You’d tune into Gino and Gil as you ran your Sunday errands and the Pats *most likely* got toasted.

Yes, I’m excited the defense was so disruptive, but let’s also remember that this was a far cry from that fearless gameplan offense we saw from the Eagles the last time these two teams met in Minnesota. The good news is that we can still feel good, and you can bet your five Super Bowl rings that Eagles fans definitely feel pretty miserable about being 0-2 in the preseason.
It feels like it will be hard for even the most negative Patriots fans to piss and moan about this one, which could possibly mean that the local narrative will become one that is excited about this Patriots team, instead of gleefully awaiting an internal soap opera to destroy the entire franchise from within. But I’m sure [sports radio] will do their best to keep fans angry and calling in about their trash takes.
Here are my rapid-fire notes on a preseason game that felt like it announced the 2018 Patriots’ presence.

Defense still suspect in passing game at times but front got some nice pressures and the O looks strong. Patterson is legit.

No he does not look slow and preseason superstars are a dime a dozen but this kid has my attention.

I was the one saying Bentley was slow. He never looked this good at Purdue. Always was a thumper against the run, but he could be exploited in the pass game.

I'm pleasantly surprised by what I'm seeing so far. Definitely didn't expect it! If he keeps it up in the regular season, I'll enjoy a nice crow dinner.

Wait, eagles fans are "miserable" over a preseason record?

Was that supposed to be serious?

I think a lot of folks assumed that Hightower would end up back in the middle by default because we really didn't have a viable MLB, but I watch this kid calling the plays on D and finding the right place to blow plays up and it actually appears like he is a leader out there. He LOOKS like an instant starter and allows Hightower to play SAM and Van Noy to play weak side, which helps the overall chemistry.

However, I want to see what happens when people game plan for Bentley and try to expose him in coverage. That hasn't happened yet, so we should all try to temper the enthusiasm a little.

Nah, why should we? DROY.

* Preseason superstars are a dime a dozen, but Bentley looks like the real deal. No question about it. He would appear to be our best LB and I mean now. How is this guy supposed to be slow? Does he play slow to anybody?

* Patterson. I want to believe my lyin' eyes which are telling me that he's going to catch a lot more than 30 passes this season. Looks like Chevs was right and I was wrong about him. Please let it be real.

* The pass rush was obviously way better and a lot of guys contributed to that, but Derek Rivers is the guy that I noticed the most. He's got no size, but is unusually strong and has advanced hand usage. He closes the deal fast, too. We've got something in him.

* If there is any truth that a unit takes on something of their coach's personality then it appears possible that Brian Flores is the right guy to turn the intensity of our D up a few notches. By comparison, Matty P usually looked like a guy trying to remember what his wife told him she needed at Stop and Shop.

* He didn't play against anybody, but once again I was impressed by Matt Tobin who played LT in the second half and showed fine movement skills and decent power. He looks a lot better than I expected, but I don't know if there is room for him. Maybe he'll make it as our swing guy, but I'd feel better about his chances if he could handle the backup center job. I'll be watching for somebody besides James Ferentz to step in over the next two games because I don't know if he can add value at another slot. I'm seeing a numbers crunch on the OL, which is a nice problem to have.

* I hate getting fired up this early, but, barring serious injuries changing the mix I'm not seeing any drop-off in this team whatsoever. The opposite, if anything.
Lol!

You’re one of the best with the sarcastic snipe.

I think the guy meant that they are miserable ALL the time, so.....just one more thing to gripe about.

Any thoughts on Goddert from the Eagles.

Was hoping for him over Michel in the draft. Figured with Gronks tempestuous status and the lack of depth at TE it’d be a more prominent position for replacement than RB.

Yeah. He looks exactly like Zach Ertz. I don't think he appears overrated or will need years of grooming to be productive.

I hadn't watched him play much. I always thought he was one of those guys that was fast but it took him a bit to get there. It looked like the defender must have thought the same thing on that play. I was shocked at how fast he accelerated.

Hollister worries me though. He makes some incredible catches but all the way back to last season it seems like he gets dinged on nearly every reception. I saw him make one catch last night and took a hit. He was wincing and kind of holding his shoulder when he got up.

Has Lane Johnson given his thoughts on the Super Bowl last night? Shortest reign ever for a defending champ.
