That interception is EXACTLY the type of pass that Brady's injury will cause. Tom Brady does NOT throw that pass in 2007 (or 2008 week 1). He holds onto that ball. He takes the big hit and he lives for another down. Post-Injury Tom Brady tries to get rid of the ball as fast as he can and hope he can avoid getting hit, although he still does. If you look at the pass, it wasn't going anywhere near a receiver, it was just a chuck the ball outta here and hope for the best pass.
Brady will make plenty of quality passes when given time in the pocket. But watch for his pressure-pass abilities to take a hit, like there.
We really should be able to run on this defense....pretty big holes for Jackson and this line isnt half what ours is.
Anyone else surprised at the lack of big time speed on the Pats....Other then Moss, none of these guys put any fear in me (Welker is a great player that has killed us, but poseesion wise)....Taylor, Faulk (as RB and KR), any of their TE's,....not the type of guys that have a ton of big play potential.
Lets hope Revis can shadow Moss and we can rough Brady up a little...cant wait for Sunday.
Brady is getting hit, a lot. I haven't seen the Patriots struggle this much with pass protection in a long time.
The Pats D looks soft, like middle of the pack soft. The Bills couldn't get their offense on track all pre-season, and they are moving the ball quite well.
I think our defense can keep us in the game vs. the Pats offense as long as we hit Brady as much, if not more than the Bills are hitting him.
Then it comes down to scoring points, I think if Sanchez can play half as well vs. the Patriots, we will win. Our running game and offensive line will make it so. If Buffalo's all new, all inexperienced O-line can get Fred Jackson 5 yards per carry, then Thomas Jones, Leon Washington and Shonn Greene will run all day.
