    Maybe I am only one that noticed or read too much into it, but if you go back/watch replay that will probably be ran on NFL Network, during the anthem Gronk looked really spaced out and almost hurt facial expression wise, might be something that wasn't brought up/known, or it could just be he was preparing himself but we usually see him "Gronk" like pregame. Not making excuses for him nor Patriots, hell if they are about to decline it works in our favor but again as I said earlier, something just seems off with the team overall.

    Berry with an Achilles injury, isn't that why Lippett is out for the season?

    Either Alex Smith is really underrated or terrified of losing his job to Mahomes.

    Maybe something happened with a relative via the hurricane or something. Interesting but he definitely didn't seem himself tonight.

    So Patriots getting thumped. Dolphins game postponed. The winner between the Bills and Jets, two teams trying to tank, will be in sole possession of first place. You just never know.

    '07 was on offensive juggernaut and had little to do with defense. But yeah, the offseason hype for them was ridiculous this year.

    I honestly thought NE had a legit chance at 16-0.

    Funny when they were talking about how it's amazing New England hasn't lost their OC or DC with all their success...lol those coordinators know they're nothing without Brady and Belicheat. McDaniels knows first hand lol

    Falcons still 96.8% to win superbowl after halftime? Again, I would love to see decline in Patriots but basing anything after first game of season(not long ago they went 2-2 to start season) is kind of crazy.. hell we started 1-4 last season and look where we finished with a TOOL as our defensive cord.! You can almost bet that BB and Matt Patricia are going to adjust that defense scheme wise and ride the hell out of the players in practice.

    Remember when Kansas City blew out New England a few years ago, New England just followed that up with winning the SB that year lol

    Get back to me when BB takes a team to the SB with a guy like David Woodley.
    BB disqualified himself from the debate when he purposely engaged in Spygate.
    I hope we get to see that beautiful defense twice this season.

    I was just saying the same thing in post #30.

    We can enjoy this, but it also has to be with a little perspective.

    Let's just enjoy the fact they lost their opener at home. It never happens.

    I don't think kc is playing better than average. The pats just look bad. I'm sure they'll fix it but they are playing like poop tonight and it's all their fault. Kc has given them more than enough opportunities and they've failed to do much with said opportunities.

    I know I quote you and worked facts in my favor but not directly like OMG you are wrong you bum or anything, just stating one game. I mean we all can be excited about them losing/hopes of undefeated season wiped away, etc.. but it's New England so until they lose like 3-4 in a row, I can't count them out(as much as I would love to).

    I feel sorry for New Orleans next week. New England bad taste in their mouths, extra time to prepare, I can't see them starting 0-2.

    Happened in '14.

    They'll adjust. As long as BB is coach it's the same defense.

    Lack of pass rush may hurt the Pats D this year. They weren't a big sack team last year but they lost Jabaal Sheard, Chris Long, and Rob Ninkovich which was 13 sacks. But right now they're Trey Flowers coming off a 7 sack season and nothing else (yet)

    I'll admit I can't help but to feel that this is not the same team as years past. Brady was forcing the ball to Hogan and it wasn't working, hence his abysmal performance. Then again kc was playing with reckless abandon and that won't work for everyone against the pats. They didn't give a poo. They trusted their secondary and allowed the pass rush to work against Tom. Patricia shat the bed. Probably won't happen again.
