With all the injured players, this current Patriots O does look a lot different than the O last year. The concepts may be the same but the execution and emphasis are a bit different. I'd like to see Hogan, Mitchell and Burkhead healthy and playing in at least 1 game this year to see exactly what BB/JMcD visualized. I think it would be a spectacular machine.

I'm thinking more what Logan Ryan's thinking when Dick LeBeau is up there saying 'And then here, what we're gonna do is zone blitz'.

That's when he mumbles to the guy next to him, 'Yeah...this ain't gonna work...'

And you'll have to put up with the constant references to cheating and Brady being a wimp and Belichick being evil. I don't post there often, but it's fun to watch their reactions whenever reality smacks them in the face.

Oh, and this:

Maybe I'll check that one out then. I couldn't care less what negative things anyone says about Brady or the Pats. It just makes me laugh. Because i KNOW that deep down they all WISH their team could have half the sustained success that the Patriots have had for the better part of 20 years now. They try to justify it with all the cheating BS but they know they look like fools and that every team "cheats". I just can't wait until the Squeeler fans can no longer use the old "we have more rings" smack.

And thanks! I've been a Pats fan since the mid 90s but never got on any of these forums until recently.

Latest forecast is for rain ending in the early afternoon and temps dropping into the 20's as the evening progresses with low wind. Should be very good conditions.

NOAA Forecast for Saturday:

Quote:
Saturday
Rain before 1pm, then a chance of drizzle between 1pm and 4pm, then a chance of drizzle and sleet after 4pm. Some thunder is also possible. Areas of fog. High near 51. Southwest wind 5 to 10 mph becoming north in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 26 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%.

Saturday Night
A chance of snow, freezing drizzle, and sleet before 11pm, then a slight chance of snow between 11pm and 3am. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 18. Chance of precipitation is 30%.
That reads to me like it's going to do, literally, everything throughout the course of the day and night.

I expect the Patriots to be prepared regardless.

The forecasts have been all over the place. But the locals and weather.com are starting to agree that the worst will end early. For me, it's about prepping for the tailgate. A rain tailgate is usually not enjoyable. In stadium, I'm covered by the luxury boxes, so I'll remain dry regardless. This is weather.com:

Those 3. Then add JE and Martellus(maybe).

Next season should be spectacular on Offense. Providing health...

Couple of random thoughts about Saturday night:

* Coming down the stretch we had a bad loss versus Miami in which I mentioned my belief that Bill sometimes will throw out a vanilla game plan late in the season for unknown reasons and that oftimes those clunkers are followed by a sharp, completely different kind of performance, often in the postseason.

Without rehashing it all (most think it is bullshit), I might point out that the Jets game, while a solid win, also looked a little on the strange side with no targets of Gronk and an unusual emphasis on deep passing in a game where the wind chill was near zero. We hit a few, missed a few and drew a couple of big flags on these plays, but it may have had a different purpose.

I think this is possibly done to provide recent film to try to influence defenses to play more deep coverage schemes to loosen up the shorter zones for our normal precision attack. Of course, getting some guys back who have been healing up is important to making anything work, but I'm hopeful that we see a much more focused and cohesive offense with sustained drives.

* Based on how it is playing out on sports talk radio, the Wickersham article is a very big deal for a lot of Patriots fans and I'm curious to see if the crowd brings it's A game just in case the band IS really getting ready to break up. I'm not even a little bit worried, but there are definitely rumblings of doom out there.

* On a semi-related note, it is clear that Brady did not have a great statistical finish to the season-- which plays into the fears that he might have suddenly "fallen off the cliff". I'm looking for a dominant Brady performance to signal that the last half-dozen were more about missing pieces and laying in the weeds than that he's ready to start watching Matlock reruns.

Just give me Edelman. He alone would have made this a historic offense.

Give me Jules too.

And then not 1 but 2 late round slot prospects with blistering 3cone times and hands like Gorilla Glue.

If you’re going to have a sight adjust offense that relies on pre snap reads and quick seperation you need to be slightly deeper at the 2nd most important position than 1.
