    Miami's defensive line is supposed to be fierce.  They have Brandon Marshall.  With the exception of QB they may have a well built team.

    Every team is tough on any given Sunday. Remember the Browns game. Pats should be favorites, but every game must be played out to its fullest. Truely great coaching job getting a team to compete to its fullest entire season.

    Miami because it's the first game and they're an NFL team. As Pats fans we're spoiled, especially after 2007's record-breaking year. None of these games are really that easy, which goes to show the true mastery of Belichick and Brady.

    I say it starts with Miami on the road....tough interdivisional game among heated rivals.....1st game of the year....I take no team for granted.....Pats better come to win on every game day or they will be in for a loooooooooooong season

    Cameron Wake drinks Vollmer's milkshake. He drinks it all up. 


    But not Miami, not with Henne playing QB. I say week 2 against the number 1 offense and number 1 defense San Diego Chargers.

    Also, it'll be pretty hot in Miami for a September game. Historically, we've struggled down there when it's that warm.

    Miami in Miami...Echo...Echo...Echo.

    One thing we have going for us is we seem to be a little better prepared than the Dolphins early on to go along with more talent. In the words of Don Criqui. "This will be a battle of Nutrition but I think Tim Brody will be up to the Challenge".

    If I'm going to answer the question in your title;

    I'd say making the correct roster cuts. They're so stacked with talent right now, it's imperative that they perform all the checks and balances with evaluating these guys so they make the right choices when the time comes.

    If I'm going to answer the question in your post;

    I'd say San Diego.....you guys are funny. It's one thing for the team to answer questions conservatively to avoid bulletin board fodder but we don't have to.
    Miami's going to be better than last year no doubt, but they aren't going to give this team problems. This defense is going to be all over Henne.
     
    The game will be over by halftime and we still won't show the Bolrts everything this defense is capable of.

    Line Gronkowsi up next to Vollmer the first 8 plays of the game, run right at him and pound the snot out of him repeatedly.

    Every game will be a test.  They are putting in a completely new defense.  Tradition says the defense starts slow and gets stronger throughout the season.  I think this year they are going to have a test every week.  After they play a couple of games, teams are going to try to figure out the new defense and how to beat it.  The team that does is going to win.  I figure that should be around week 4 or 5.  Then BB will change his defense and start to win again.

    Is NE a better team than Miami?  Sure.  Could Miami whip us in their house if we don't show up with our A game?  Sure.

    Miami, on the road, with a defense that could get to TB, is our first big test.

    I bet we hang a 40 burger on them, but MVP is right--any given Sunday any team an win.

    Agree with most everyone here. Miami presents the first test, as it is the start to the regular season and a test to see how well we can prepare and play. Nothing at this pointn counts except for Miami. Remember the Pats mantra.."one practice at a time, one game at a time..."

    I am surprised at the number of posters that said Miami.  I thought I would be truely alone on this.  For sure Miami.  It sets the tone for the season.  On the road against an old rival.  The only thing that would be better is if it were the Jets the Pats faced first.
