|5 Things I am Worried About Heading into September||09.02.08 at 8:07 am ET|
Heading into the beginning of Fall, I have a few things I am concerned about regarding the Patriots and Red Sox — here they are…
1. Tom Brady‘s foot. He is injured, it’s no game Belichick is playing. If he can’t start against Kansas City they go from 16 point favorites to a pick. I don’t trust any of the back ups to lead this team to victory. If Brady does play, will the line protect him from injuring the foot even more? If they play like they did vs. the Giants Brady won’t last the season.
2. The Pats secondary. Their safety’s are slow and CB’s are average. Brandon Merriweather could be their best player in the defensive backfield but he is hurt. I like Deltha O’Neil and I think it’s time to sign Ty Law.
3. The Pats LB’s. Jarod Mayo looked like the best member of that group in the pre-season. Shawn Crable has a shot to play. Bruschi has looked old in the pre-season and what will the rest of the aging group give you?
4. Richard Seymour. He has been a shell of himself the last 3 years. Is he done or have injuries hurt him? He finally spent the off season here in Foxboro, will that make a difference? He was clearly out of shape the last few years at the beginning of the season.
5. The Red Sox injuries. The Sox are playing well but Pedroia can’t continue to carry this team offensively. Lowell needs to get healthy and Beckett needs to be the Beckett of last year. If those two things don’t happen I think it is one and done in the playoffs for the defending champs.
