    The defense is going to get hammered by some for the yards and points allowed, but you have to hand it to Henne tonight. He hung in there, took some shots and delivered some excellent passes as he was getting drilled. He also made some very instinctive and nice runs. The Pats had three or four sacks but could have had 8 or 9 given a split second longer on some of those plays.

    Lots to work on, but they were very tight against the run, which was good to see, and quite stout on 3rd downs (not so much on 4th downs). They also had two nice stops inside their own 5 when they had to have them.

    They need Cunningham and Spikes back healthy, however, to complete the entire picture of what the D could look like 8 weeks from now.

    Solid effort by Dowling, too. Very good for a rookie. I thought Chung was all over the field tonight, too.

    Oh, and Bill O'Brien has already pi$$ed me off about a dozen times and it's only Game 1. They should have closed out the game much, much sooner, but he kept calling pass plays---it drove me insane. The run/pass balance simply is not there, and that's one of the main reasons why they've lost their last three post-season games.

    That has to change, period.

    Brady was in god mode. Defense was ok. I don't think they run enough. It doesn't matter now but it will down the road. Double tight end set is unstoppable basically.

    i agree on your comment re the run.

    i believe the d will get better. front 7 will even get better. i thought wilfork was a tad fat. he'll be back to form in a couple of weeks. by week 5, he and vw will destroy OLs. just in time for the jets.

    Don't be fooled by the score, Dolphins was 2/14 on 3rd down, the inside pressures were there, like what I saw, that's an improvement imo from last year
