I like our chance earlier in the season against the Pats.
Didn’t we beat these guys the last time we played them?
That game was in Pittsburgg, but I agree with Ward. I'd much rather play the Patriots early in the season. They consistently get better as seasons wear on.
We are 0-5 or 0-6 in Gillette. Bill shuts our offense with brown and we don’t score as much on the road
Can't shut our offense with Brown down if we don't have Brown
Only if we play Ben more in the preseason, it takes him some time to get into a groove.
RIght now I would be surprised if we are 3-3 going into the bye week.
We win then go on to a 5-11 season but hey we have now beat the Pats twice in a row.
More like 2-4.
At least the out west trips are earlier in the season I think that helps. It's usually the later out west season games were the Steelers play really bad.
Steelers generally never play well in California. I'm hoping that changes since we have 2 games out west and 1 in Arizona.
Yep. Ben would have to get up to speed in preseason to avoid usual slow start for the offense just to give us a chance. Pats known for sometimes slow start, sort of, but not as bad as us.
We are due then. I like playing them first game this year as Belicheat doesn't have any LEGAL tape to study the new offense. No Gronk to deflate my big head with last minute heroics. Yeah, we got this, Popcorn 1-0.
And under modern rules, we would have beat them twice in a row.
Wonder what Belicheat will come up with this time
Maybe a dinner of sour grapes for Stillers fans everywhere
I'll skip the dinner for just a fair game with the Pats. From the history of that team I do have some doubts though which are kind of warranted from past (*) seasons.
Quit friggin whining. They're a good team who we need compete with to beat.
Spygate, Deflategate, Snowplows, Headsets, PED MVP's, constant favorable calls. Yep, they're a good team who seem to be great year after year. Having the Commissioner and the owner being such good buddies is just the icing on the cake.
On any given day...
And let's not forget about Gronkowski...
After week 1, this board will be lit up with post about us in contention for the number 1 pick or us clearing space in the trophy case for the seventh Lombardy
You wanna play the Pats in September... September is there worse record in brady era.... This is not a hard schedule.... If we could some how find a win there we could be on our way......
Deflategate........ Really? Get real... And Kraft and the commisioner fking hate each other.......... The patriots are the greatest origination in the history of sports........ Get over it.......
