Offensive Line- Yes, Dante is back and I'm expecting a much improved line. Will this be evident this early in the season? Probably not. Nevertheless, I will be paying more attention to them than I typically would in the preseason.
Quarterbacks- Yes, it will be Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett time tonight unless Belichick surprises us all with a Tom Brady Cameo. Being the first preseason game and the fact that the usual targets will not be in the lineup, it will be a little hard to effectively judge the jobs they do unless they are throwing to someone who is wide open. Regardless, it is still something to keep an eye on.
Defense- I'll be missing my Chandler Jones tonight. With several rookie cornerbacks trying to make the team in some capacity, I'll be taking some notes on how many snaps they are getting and any special teams they play on
Sorry for the short post, must return to the job that pays the bills.
