Patriots Coming Rested And Ready

August 21st, 2012

If you bothered to tune in to the Patriots-Eagles game last night on Monday Night Football, you might not have recognized New England.

Per the Boston Globe, Bill Belicheat had most of his starters take the night off. This apparently was to keep them rested and ready for the Bucs-Patriots game Friday, which is the third preseason game of the season, when teams typically let their starters play a half or more.

Twenty-six Patriots, highlighted by quarterback Tom Brady, receiver Wes Welker, linebacker Jerod Mayo, and defensive tackle Vince Wilfork, did not play.

Joe was very pleased by this development. The Bucs will get the best the Patriots have to offer. What an evaluation opportunity for the New Schiano Order!

The Patriots abused the Bucs last year in the preseason, jumping out to a 21-0 lead. You can be sickened by highlights of the 2011 carnage here.

    If the Titans did what they did to us, imagine what the Patriots will do.
    But this is good, so we can find out who the future Bucs will be.

    Titans didnt do to much to our starters…. They beat up on 3rd stringers… I think this will be a great gauge for this team to see how they stack up to a legit team and coach.

    I guess it will be 45 nothing at halftime this year instead of 28 nothing compared to last year
