    Vanilla offense. I like that we tried to go with obvious run at that front 4

    I hate that quick handoff.  The back has no room to be able to see a hole.

    The offensive line is going to have a long week in training camp. Rookie mistakes aside ... they are just getting owned by Detroit in the pass and run game. 

    This defense, Chandler Jones in particular, looks better than it has in almost a decade. 

    Again, forgetting the fumbles, drops, misrun crossing routes ... I love what I have seen from Dobson and Thompkins. They have talent. 

     

     

     


    yep

     

     

     



    Those are all rookie mistakes ... they cna be fixed.

     

    How often do you remember actual outside WRs getting bhind the defense ... often? 

    That cannot be taught. 



    we never really had players who had that kind of talent, apart from Moss....

    Unfortunately, McD and BB have failed to find a solution for the offense when Brady and the OL are getting manhandled.

     

     




    IDK, I think a lot of times the receivers are covered and Brady won't throw it into coverage.

     

     

     



    That's why he, historically, throws so few interceptions. When Bledsoe was replaced by Tom, it was a revelation. 

     

    Don't beat yourself. 




    Yeah, I love it. I was just pointing out that it is not all on the O-lines shoulders. A lot of times the guys just aren't open...

    Still can't get the important yards, on the ground, when needed

    Out of all the preseason game results that have worried me in the past, this one bothers me the least. Detroit's front can do this to teams and they are playing like this is their Super Bowl.

    We know the Lions' front four is wicked. A lot fo this has to do with rookie miscues, and two silly fumbles from vets.

    If Sudsy isn't carrying that ball like a picnic basket NE likely walkds with seven there. 

    I love the level of competitiveness I'm seeing from the defense. They are out there diving at the ball. They are getting aggressive with the offense. It's nice to see.

    Chandler Jones, Nink, and Kelly are looking like a very effective team on third down too. 

     



    Hopefully that was the worst half of the season !!!

    I know it's unlikely, but I'd like to see Tom get some reps in with the rookies for the 3rd Q, then hand it off to Mallet in the 4th. Brady won't play next week, so this is quality time getting practice without Amendola or Gronk out there.  



    Agree

    If this is a dress rehearsal then we need to find a new dress.
