    Meh. Injuries to the WRs at this point are like getting called for a personal foul on your own 1-yard line. Sounds bad but really doesn’t make the situation any worse than it already is.

    I think it’s like the film industry, you never actually save money, you just get a different set of favorable numbers to show to your boss.

    Patriots season doesn't start until week 5. Edelman and Gordon will significantly change this team.

    No, no, no. Belichick sucks and Tom is finally done. There is zero chance they could possibly do what they’ve done for like the past 5 years in turning a corner after a slow start. Quite frankly, this run ended on Monday night in Kansas City 4 years ago. They haven’t come back from that one.

    You're absurd. They wouldn't pay DA or Cooks. There is a reason this team has been the best for the past 18 years. You can't pay everyone.

    Hey on the bright side Forbes said the Pats are the 2nd most valuable team in the NFL!

    More passes to Gronk and White

    Seems like a good thing.

    if the Dolphins are 4-0 and the Pats are 1-3, does that really matter?

    The Cliff is the talent pool drying up, whether through suspect drafting, poor roster construction or injuries.

    The fact is Tom isn’t getting traded and there doesn’t look like any influx of players stepping up. This feels like it could be a lonnggg season.

    I hope Belichick has to coach without Brady.

    It’ll matter if Miami is 3-1 and the Pats are 2-2. You do know they haven’t actually played the game yet, right?

    Are you crazy?

    This guy is 41. He is either done right now or very close to done.

    Just because he defied popular opinion and played at a really high level for a few years longer than expected doesn't mean he is lasting forever.

    Oh well. Pats can win next week and will be back to .500 with Jules coming back. I will take that.

    I love, LOVE that a criticism of BB in the last 5 years is that he’s gotten his “lunch handed to him” in the Super Bowl. A period during which, he’s actually won 2 Super Bowls, and lost a third one that was in question until the last drive of the game.

    Patriot fans are the worst.

    Thing is, by the time Jules comes back we’ll be dealing with other injuries and missed time. The lack of depth is really troubling.

    This just feels different than years past. Not whole lot of talent on this team outside of brady and gronk. Brady has looked like garbage today but when he starts huking it down field you know no one is open. This game was pretty eye opening to me and after watching Jacksonville’s offense today I can’t help but feel this the worst defense in the league. As much as I love BB for everything he has done, he has failed this team as the GM over the last year.

    defense would be helped by the pats having more than 2 drives of over 5 plays

    there was no reason not to pay Dion, or 'Dola. Dola had 3 years of paycuts. They both earned some $$$. Pats pay shit for The GOAT and best TE ever...wheres the fucking money???

    It’s not just the defense that has questions. It’s every facet of the team including coaching.

    Edelman and Gordon give the offense a puncher’s chance to get back to form, but the defense is just broken. Still, if the offense gets back, it’s not over.

    Sometimes I think that a large portion of this fanbase doesn’t deserve the run that the Pats have been on since ‘01. I’m embarrassed by it quite frankly.

    If this is true, I will love this season... Just enjoying what has been a 20 year joy ride. If it isn't true I will love this season as a season of redemption. Needless to say, I will be entertained.

    This thread really is pathetic. Yeah, I mean it might be over, but Jesus. They’ve done ok.

    (Though Belichick’s drafting the past 5 years has been utter dogshit).

    The funny thing is that if Edelman is useful and Gordon keeps it together that actually solves a bunch of shit. That is potentially two huge upgrades.

    But this game gave me a really weird feeling. A level of noncompetitiveness not often seen here. Playcalling the likes of which we NEVER see here, at least not for all four quarters. Like, I’m wondering what they even did all week.

    Too early to panic, get Chung/Flowers back and the D is better.

    Jules comes back, Brady has another trusted option.

    But its not to soon to worry.
