Preseason Week 4 - Patriots vs. Giants

I have just realized that there is a small rip in the seam of my trousers, right around the crotch, and as this tiny tear is mesmerizing me at the moment, I hope you’ll understand if I don’t say much about tonight’s Patriots game. I promise that I will get better about writing these pre-game notes once the regular season starts, I really do, but I’m obsessed with my pants at the moment. How did this rip get there? How long has it been there? Is this the reason that no one has been sitting next to me on the train on the way home?

Ahem! Anyway, don’t expect the Pats starters to play much, if at all, tonight. It’ll be a good chance to take a look at the second stringers and the guys we haven’t seen much of. And speaking of dudes we haven’t seen much of, Felgie is reporting that Bethel Johnson is off of the PUP list, which means we might see him, and I think that means we should be keeping a close eye on the wide receiver position tonight. Now that the team has eight wide-outs to choose from, who is going to slip up and get themselves canned?
