A lot of obvious info here, but still good. TLDR: Expect opposing teams to blitz a lot, while the Patriots offense simplifies Jimmy G's reads and rolls him out by design more often. I'm sure Chandler Jones and JJ Watt are salivating. Hopefully Scar coaching the O-line again will help, as will having another beast blocking TE in Bennett. My hope for the Patriots is 2-2 in the first four, anything more than that is a bonus.
www.thescore.com/news/1059127 "Garoppolo doesn't have a great arm, but he's certainly a more mobile player than Brady, and we should expect New England to incorporate more designed quarterback movement with bootlegs and whatnot to utilize those skills. Also, rolling him out will give him more defined half-field reads. He might also tuck it and run from time to time, which is certainly a change from the Patriots' norm."
If he gets the ball out if his hands quickly think they will be fine. I'm worried about Oline Depth going forward though especially at the tackle position once again. So thin and Vollmer isalmost guaranteed to get injured again.
I don't think the Patriots will beat Arizona, but I am confident they would have beaten Arizona with Brady.
If you watched that Arizona-Green Bay playoff game... both teams sucked. Not impressed by Arizona.
Yeah, I have that as an L, too. There is a chance that Belichick's devises a game plan to get multiple turnovers from Palmer, that is probably the only way they win. I expect Chandler Jones to be extremely motivated in front of a home crowd against his old team, going against what is sure to be an iffy LT situation.
Didn't expect them to keep four TEs on the 53-man roster. I think they feel like they needed to hold onto Harbor for blocking. Derby's primarily a pass catcher (I like him, though). Protection for Jimmy G still a key imo. I can foresee Chandler Jones flying around the edge and strip sacking Jimmy G on Sunday night...
