    Pressure from the D-line, alone without blitzes... get in Brady's face - 2 or 3 sacks would be awesome.

    I think that would do it.

    I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by CJ this season. He's still faster than everybody on the field and he has gotten his elusiveness back. I'm trusting that we'll play to our strengths in the running game and allow CJ to get in some open space. CJ looked good this pre-season. He'll be fine.

    I'll gamble and blitz Brady. Regardless of what Hutchinson said about the guy, he's the 1st to start complaining when he gets hit. The games he struggles in, are the games where he's getting hit. And by getting hit, I don't mean getting the sack.

    I hope Gray blitzes the heII out of Brady. If he's gonna beat us, I want it to be very uncomfortable, sometimes painful to do so.

    Well, as usual, we have no respect from Pick Nation, etc. We need to attack to win this game. Period! If our defense gets pressure on Brady and puts him on the ground a few times, we can win this game.

    Simple in theory... get pressure on Brady, control the ball on offense.

    I think we'll see the Pats try to nullify the rush by getting the ball out quickly. The Titans secondary has to disrupt off the line or it'll be pitch and catch. I'm going to lose my mind if I see our CBs playing seven yards off the LOS.

    Offensively, the Titans have to keep the ball for long drives. For me, that means they are going to have to be much more effective on first down to avoid the 2nd-and-9 and 3rd-and-8 situations. If the Titans don't control the clock for over 35 minutes in this game, I don't see them winning.

    Getting a lead early is going to be the another key. Keep the fans in the game. If the Titans go down by two TDs or more, and have to rely on Jake's arm, it'll be a tough first start for Locker.

    you're right - our talent level on defense is a bit out-matched by their offense, so keeping them down will require creative play calling and in-game adjustments. our one advantage is d-line vs o-line, and we need to be sure to exploit it. our offense is plenty capable of scoring, but we have to mix it up and keep them guessing just as much as we'll be guessing about them, because even tho their defense was subpar last year, they've improved and belichick can out-coach most anyone in the league. i hope our coaching staff can keep up in that regard.

    Honestly, the Pats line is average at best. We should be able to get aleast 3

    I expect McCarthy to have a pick in this game. With him and Verner roaming underneath we might actually fare well against their TE's. I don't see Brad making a bunch of long completions on us, I expect him to get his yards by throwing underneath and on curls and outs.

    I'm still uncertain about our offense. The potential is there but we've gotta execute better than we have in the pre-season.

    I don't know why everybody is calling Brady soft, he puts his body on the line. Last year in the AFCCG when Baltimore tried to make that goal line stand Brady went right into that d-line, and got up and did it again when the first one failed. He'll step up and release the ball even when he is about to get clobbered. He takes huge his and jumps right back up.
