hey kids- 

football's back, and our patriots started the season with a win for a change. it was a sloppy win, but not as sloppy as losing, so we'll take it.

our fearless quarterback went right back to business, going 26 for 39 and racking up 277 yards and three touchdowns to start the season. there was also a tipped pass interception - see the aforementioned sloppy - but all in all, it was a good showing. nice to see you again, tommy.

there are a lot of new faces (and a lot of missing faces) on the field this year, but the team looks surprisingly solid. maybe houston just sucks, but our o-line gave tommy some great protection and our pass defense looked like they might actually know what they're doing - even gilmore! our receivers could brush up on their catching skills, and gronk could brush up on his holding on to the ball after he catches it skills, but these were mostly first-game-of-the-season rather than holy-crap-our-team-is-in-trouble kinds of concerns. i'm giving the tommy to gronk in spite of his fumble for three reasons: firstly, he responds well to positive feedback and we need him to keep catching until jules gets back; secondly, he did catch seven passes for 123 yards and a touchdown; and thirdly, this:

we play jacksonville on sunday, and that should give us a clearer picture on how good our team is shaping up to be. think your happy patriots thoughts that it's really, really super good - if for no other reason than jacksonville is really, really super obnoxious.  

have a great week, and go pats. 

love dav
