Do we always play the Giants in the Preseason? whats up with that?


Revis on Desean Jackson is going to be interesting if either of them play or put much effort in the game. Want to see how Revis does against the speedy guys

Teams get to pick their pre-season opponents. Given Belichick and Coughlin's closeness, it's not a surprise that they always play the 4th game against each other. It also ensures both teams don't have to travel too much the week before the season starts.

1) Can Browner practice or play pre season with Patriots or banned from everything till regular season game four?

2) Don't see any good let alone great WR corps on that pre season schedule, draft still hasn't happened I know.

3) Any idea if we are doing joint training camp with anyone at all? Houston?

I would think they will be doing joint activities with Philadelphia.

Houston wouldn't make sense as the Pats don't play them.

Browner can practice and play in the pre-season.

Washington's receiving corps is pretty solid with Jackson, Garcon and Reed at TE.

Only thought Houston because of the Bill O'Brien connection and thought it'd be neat to play vs such a shaken up team along with a team that just got to load up on early rounders.

Why would you assume Philly?

I was overlooking Washington a bit there as I like Garcon and Reed and had forgotten their existence because everything in Washington has seemed to be about Shanny or RG3 recently. I'm excited to see what Jay Gruden does for that offense tho.

I'm also looking forward to seeing if and how Bill adds to or plays with the secondary. Will be nice to get glimpses of browner and Revis together.

Well, they did it last year and are reported to be looking to do it again so....

I think its a safe bet that they will be playing man 80-90% of the time with Browner and especially Revis.

80-90% of the snaps in pre season...I'll take that safe bet.

Just had no idea Chip and Bill had the chem or wanted to do a session together again. Getting free looks at Shady McCoy helps, dude is nasty.

Yes, Bill and Chip are very close. Apparently, Bill consulted with Chip a couple years ago on effectively running the no-huddle offense after Oregon had so much success with it.

I would imagine there would be joint practices with Philly and NYG, and perhaps also Washington. I'm glad the Pats play the Giants again this year, especially with NY's newly revamped secondary. It will be a good test in the 4th game for the WRs.

I would assume Browner would play most of the preseason snaps, given that he'll have to sit out 4 weeks, just to get acclimated to the defense. Very much looking forward to that.

Given it's the 4th game, I doubt it will be a test for anything except whose future practice squad guys are better at executing a vanilla scheme.

I thought the 4th game typically has the starters playing longer, right? Or am I not remembering that correctly? And a vanilla scheme should test the WRs enough I would think since there will be no schematic advantages, just more 1v1 matchups.

No, the 4th game usually has the starters for 10 plays at most. There have been a few years where Belichick has played the starters more in the 4th quarter (usually if the team looks sloppy in practice or earlier games). But usually it's just the camp bodies who are cut the next day and the backups.

That's the 3rd game traditionally.
