         A much better week this week for all Pats fans, as opposed to the gnashing of teeth last week, in the aftermath of the debacle in Miami. The Pats' need better OL play, better run defense, and few more »

    In response to TheTinMan's comment: Your opinion:  given that the D seems to be rounding into what fans hoped (generating TO's, making stops and pressuring the QB), the O seems to be out of sorts.  Se more »

    In response to TrueChamp's comment: I agree but through 2 weeks the league has the most penalties called in NFL history. You admonish us for not being in "midseason form" even though it is the beginni more »

    In response to rkarp's comment: the Vikes, with AP, are a 6 win team this year.       I completely disagree. With Peterson, Minnesota is at least a .500 team. His presence prevents teams from teeing o more »

    In response to p-mike's comment: Okay . . .  yeah . . .  it is only week two, but it's the lack of discipline that's glaring to me. Of course, who knows what is or isn't a penalty in the NFL anymore? more »

    In response to freediro's comment: Couldn't agree more, especially about Brady and the coaching! I thought the secondary would get an A+ to be honest! no mention of the uselessness of Bolden in the ru more »

    In response to TrueChamp's comment: The offense still doesn't look anywhere near smooth. A team that gets flagged 15 times, amassing 163 yards in penalties, can hardly be said to be in mid-season form more »

         If you watched the Patriots earn their first victory of the season, 30-7 over the Adrian Peterson-less Minnesota Vikings, didn't you get the feeling that the team is still mired in the preseason? more »

         Congrats to the Eagles for their huge win over top 10 ranked USC! A big-time win for their program.

    In response to garytx's comment: I'm going to say yes the Pats will cover.  I'm banking on the rebound that the Pats usually have after terrible games like last weekend.  I'm not bubbling over with co more »

         I'm sick and tired of being preached at by the likes of Bob Costas (gun control), James Brown and Mike Florio (domestic violence, and Redskins name is racist), having pink shoved in my face for a more »

    In response to garytx's comment: To keep this thing from getting too long I just changed the comments and placed my picks in yellow.  I kept Pats spread and picks in bold. In response to TexasPat's co more »

         With the announcement that Minnesota star RB Adrian Peterson will miss the upcoming Patriots' game, the point spread has increased, an Minnesota is now a 6 point underdog at home, as compared to more »

    In response to DoNotSleepOnThePats's comment: What a bad week for the NFL.      The concussion controversy, the Ray Rice mess, and now this plays right into hands of a certain political mindset/group more »

    In response to pcmIV's comment: I'm actually confused about this case though.  Didn't Peterson's kid die because he was beaten up by the mother's boyfriend?  How is he liable for that? RESPONSE: This more »

         Here's more on Peterson: "Adrian Peterson is apparently in big big trouble. Details on this story are sketchy right now, but early reports say the Vikings RB has been indicted in Montgomery Count more »

         Greg Cote of the Miami Herald usually does of good job of picking games against the spread. I respect him, as one of the few remaining "experts" who still picks against the spread. Unfortunately, more »

         Here's how WalterFootball sees the Patriots game: NEW ENGLAND OFFENSE: I found it highly amusing that Bill Simmons told Cousin Sal on this week's podcast that they shouldn't overreact to Week 1, more »

         Good report card in the Herald. My only criticism is how Jeremy Gottlieb gives the Patriots an overall grade of "D-", when he grades out the offense, defense, special teams and coaching a "D" or more »

         That surprisingly putrid performance in Miami was hard to swallow. It likely put a damper on most Pats' fans enthusiasm for the 2014 season. What made the Miami loss so tough to digest was that t more »

         Eli won't get benched. But he may get hospitalized, if the Giants' OL doesn't do a better job of protecting him.

         OC McAdoo's system isn't cutting it.

    Hey Tex, hard to argue with your conclusions.
