Much better yesterday - offence was clicking nicely, and to be fair played alright against Kansas City too. Just stop getting injured everyone!!!

Defence was much much better - still some miscommunications but a good performance to hold the Saints to essentially 13 points (a garbage time TD aside). We seem to have found a pass rusher opposite Flowers in Wise Jr

As much as I hate the whole "take that last TD away, take the Ingram run away..." thing, I agree generally with this assessment. The defence still has a long way to go, but the offence was back to normal for the most part, and looked quite good. Still too many big plays given up, still too many mistakes, but at least we stopped the run.

Wise looks very good indeed so far.

great to get the win and even a offence missing some piece's was always going to have a good day against the Saints but the first quarter was awesome.think we are still too see the best of Cooks and really think we need to see Dwayne Allen getting more involved to take some pressure of Gronk or to even allow us to rest him if the groin is more than a tweak.

the defence played much better with Branch getting benched for the whole 1st quarter and only getting 6 snaps all game,David Harris is also a bit of a worry only 1 snap even when they had AP in the game to run.

think the big plays are an issue but think that's just how the NFL is going,you cant really cover all these big receivers,the redzone and 4th down coverage was a lot better.think without Hightower its the best we can expect.Jones made some nice plays in coverage as a nice positive.

16 years ago today since young Tom Brady made his first career start for the 0-2 patriots.238 regular season games later and he is still going strong.
