I'm not sure what hurt the Patriots offense more, the Buffalo defense or not having Welker or Hernandez anymore.

 

I think option B.  They will adjust but it will take a few weeks for them to start clicking.

Lets get real here...who are the Panthers to take anyone lightly?

 

If anything most teams act like Seattles fans..."oh the Panthers? free W this week fellas"

 

That said Buffalo isn't as bad as people think and it's not like we can just show up and win.

 

This. FOUR winning seasons in 18 years. NO back to back winning seasons EVER. Haven't been above .500 since 2008. 

 

Why would we think ANY team is a sure win? Who do we think we are? 

 

Can we win? Of course. Can they win? Of course.

 

As much as it hurts to admit it, we are just as awful as the Browns, Raiders, Lions, etc. Wow, we went to a Super Bowl. Big deal. So did Tampa. So did New Orleans.

 

Once we, you know ... win some games and put fear into other teams ... then we can laugh at playing a team like the Bills.

Welkers absence wasn't really felt at all in this contest due to the fact that Amendola had a great game! Gronk was also out. I didn't watch the game but I did peak at the box score to see what Buffalo was able to do to them. Hard to tell really from looking at the box. Could have been rust. Brady had 52 attempts compared to like 15-20 rushing attempts. But then again, I would have dialed up a similar game plan with their best corner and Safety out.

I guess we'll find out first hand come Sunday.

I will say that I hope our coaches are coaching the players to stick with their assignments at all times. With such a vicious front seven, I can see people trying to soften our rush with screens and counters (misdirection). I'd expect to see a lot of that come Sunday from Buffalo. That's what I'd do if I were them.

We shouldn't be taking any team lightly this year. I never thought we'd lose to KC. Look how that turned out.

I was flipping back and forth with the Jets/Buccs game.  Was fairly impressed with Manuel and their game.  They have some talent that will compete with most teams.  If they were full strength, I'd be pretty worried.  Cam won't allow another 7 point outting, I can tell you that right now.

Honestly the only time I ever even use that function is by mistake trying to go back to the main section.

god I can already see Stevie Johnson going deep on us, and giving Manuel a huge confidence boost.

 

D-line needs to have another huge day (I bet we'll be saying that a lot this year).

I use it only because google will show the tread rating on search results and the listing gets better attention.
