Found August 23, 2013 on Patriots Life:
The New England Patriots loss on Thursday night was as ugly as it gets. After a 40-9 loss where the Pats looked like the "little Giants" sans Ice Box and could have used Rashid "hot hands" Hanon's stick'em, the offense dropped the "TP" roll three times as the Lions poured it on in the 2nd half. Tom Brady even looked human for the first time this preseason. While the score may have raised a few eyebrows and left some fans worried going forward the New England faithful have plenty of reasons not to worry just yet unlike the Giants did that day versus the Cowboys. Here are my top reasons to stay calm. It's just the preseason. We shouldn't have to delve deeper into this but for the sake of it; before the Patriots 2007 season their record was 2-2 in the preseason. They were also 2-2 before the 2011 season. Both campaigns culminated in a Super Bowl trips. Last year the Pats were 1-3 in the preseason but would they have made the Super Bowl ha...

The Detroit Lions Probably Don’t Want To Be Taunting Tom Brady Like This During The Preseason

Could someone please let Willie Young and his $1.2 million dollar salary know that it is the preseason and pointing a finger in the face of Tom Brady really isn’t a smart idea.  The Lions are continuing their recent history of making poor decisions, and the below is probably just one in a long line of new ones to come this season. Again, I repeat… Preseason. Next Impulse Sports

Tom Brady Grabbed, Taunted by Lions’ Willie Young, Who Quickly Gets Benched in Preseason Game (GIF)

Um, don’t poke the Brady. The Patriots had plenty to worry about in their 40-9 preseason loss to the Lions on Thursday night, but one thing they surely weren’t worrying about was the fierce play of Lions defensive end Willie Young.

Lions Willie Young Taunts Tom Brady

Unlike others I don’t have a problem with it. It is the preseason. and it is the Lions, they probably shouldn’t taunt anyone, but Tom Brady is not a GOD, you can get up in his face even if you have only 25 tackles in four seasons.

Patriots big loss to Lions could be cause for concern

The Patriots struggled in a big way last night against the Detroit Lions. Tom Brady wasn’t bad, but an interception prevented his stats line from looking good by any stretch and the lack of a touchdown pass is very uncharacteristic. The Patriots offense was without Danny Amendola, and that was bound to hurt the team’s productivity. Amendola has taken the role of Tom Brady...

Lions safety Louis Delmas on Tom Brady: "That dude is like God on the field."

Louis Delmas has personally witnessed Brady destroy his team Now this is the kind of talk before a game I can get behind. We're usually used to players on the Ravens barking about how much they hate Tom Brady. Of course, that's usually born from some sort of respect for his game, but I like it better when they just come out and say it. Lions S Louis Delmas, whose team...

ESPN predicts Patriots to go 1-7 on the road

Let the predictions begin! Thankfully the start of the regular season is right around the corner. However, that great news comes with some annoying residue. ESPN predictions. Most are picking the Patriots to have a down year in the 2013 season. The reason being that they have a lot of unknown names on offense, their defense is still a question mark and Brady is getting older every...

Patriots-Lions Preseason Game: 5 Things We Learned

It's preseason. It was ugly for both first team units. The New England Patriots came into Ford Field to face the Detroit Lions and it was widely believed that this would be a shootout. Both starting quarterbacks can sling the ball better than 90% of the league. But there were some notable absences, like the leading receivers on both squads in Calvin Johnson and Danny Amendola...

Preseason Preview: Patriots @ Lions

The dress rehearsal is finally here for the New England Patriots. The starters will get the bulk of the playing time (likely into the 3rd quarter) on Thursday night as the Patriots travel to Detroit to take on the Lions.
