We got a new QB named Mac, a new battering Dodge Rham at RB, and some new TE's.

Win it for Patten!

I’m as excited for the start of the football season as I’ve been in quite a while. Thank God I have the ability to DVR the game though because I have a work event from 5:30-8:00 tonight. Ugh.

I was just coming here to post this. Brady was so consistently excellent that I took him for granted. It's not that I didn't appreciate what we were witnessing at the time, but he made the difficult look routine. Of course we had exciting season openers. It's always a pleasure to root for a team defending its crown (or back-to-back crowns). I was amped in 2007 to see what he could do with Welker and Moss. I was amped in 2009 for confirmation that Pollard hadn't ended his career. I started watching the Pats in 1994, so I missed Bledsoe's rookie season. There's a whole generation of Patriots fans who've never seen a first-round quarterback make their first start for the Pats. I'm excited to follow that journey from the beginning.

Agreed completely. As fans, sitting in our ivory tower for the last 20 years and watching division and league bottom feeders turn over their coaching staff and select franchise QBs in a vicious cycle has been entertaining, and this is an opportunity to watch the greatest coach of all time put this opportunity onto Lansdowne St. on the first pitch.

LFG.

It’s gonna be a long season, so this game isn’t that big. But I’m excited to see this group get started, even acknowledging that we won’t know what they’re ultimately about until after Halloween.

I was pretty pumped up about Drew Bledsoe’s rookie debut in the opening game of 1993 however I knew that team was not very good coming off a miserable 2-14 record in 1992. When the 1993 team started the season with four straight losses it was disappointing and they were on the wrong side of some close contests but it was not surprising. I feel so much more optimistic about Mac’s rookie debut as his surrounding cast is solid. LFG!

Anyone have any good recommendations for live streams for those of us out of market? Also, where is audio being streamed this year? In years past, I could get it with a premium TuneIn subscription but I think last year you had to have a SiriusXM sub. Same this year?

I just checked the TV and realized they're not showing this here in Maui. I recall there are ways of finding streams, but frankly don't remember where to look. Anyone care to clue me in? Asking for a friend, of course

EDIT: Duh, or what Pitt just requested above
