that's not what happened last year. last year the pats game planned and played hard while we acted like it was any other preseason game. we went in to evaluate our players. they went in to get revenge for beating them the year before. we were quite simply sucker punched. considering it was the pats, we shouldn't have been surprised. any one watching the game could tell it meant more to the pats going into the game than us and we were absolutely not on a level footing in regards to planning, motivation, and performance. this year it appears we will be closer to level footing by treating this as a real game/grudge match. if anyone gets sucker punched this year, i would rather it be them. the pats have it coming.
i agree with this. sure, being able to play multiple positions and take on different roles is great....unless you just aren't that good at any of them and your roster spot is taking one that could be fulled by a specialist at one position. being able to do one thing really well >>>>>> being meh at a couple things and not particularly good at anything ie....ward >>>>>>>>>brockel
RB/FB corps should be stewart/CAP/wegher tolbert/ward if we need one more RB for depth then either todman or fozzy. i don't care who, but i love those three rookies and think we've got the potential for something special with those three guys. imo, they are the future of the run game. gettleman nailed it with those guys.
it feels SOOOOOO good not having to worry about the OL. poo, i'm not even worried about the future of the OL like i was for several years while gross was in there. i think we've got some really good potential there long term. this unit is only going to get better with time.
run game will once again be a strength, imo. they need to get ward on that 53 man roster though. keep that duo of ward and wegher going. oh yeah...and there's CAP. wow. those three rookies are the run game future. we better find a way to keep all 3 of them around and just build with them going forward.
it was kind of an ache for me. really hard to describe. it wasn't a sharp pain like you think it would be. dull discomfort kind of explains it pretty well. the stitches after the first few days bothered me more than anything and they stayed in for over a week. i was kind of paranoid about them and they kept catching on my underwear. i was always readjusting.
just saw this. i'm just going to say milk it for the next month or two. and by that i mean milk the attention from the wife. the discomfort is real, but let the wife know it. don't play tough. let her baby you and take full advantage of the fact that you are supposed to have a lot of teh sex AFTER THE FIRST WEEK! this first week, though, you don't have anything to prove. just take it easy. of course milk it could very well have another meaning since you have to work all the live boys out of the system. oh....and keep the ice pack on for couple days. they are really your friend.
