(Preseason) Week 1: Jacksonville Jaguars 31, New England Patriots 24 (0-1) (Thursday, August 10, 2017)

The Super Bowl Champs are back in business! :)

Even though preseason games are glorified scrimmages and the points don't matter, you can learn things about your team. For instance, back=up quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo looked pretty sharp even though he was throwing to second-stringers, as the starters didn't start. Tom had to look pretty on the sidelines. :)

So the offense was pretty good but the defense gave up three long bombs. Again, second-string, but these guys are trying to make the team. Special teams was so-so. Once again kicker Stephen Gostkowski has the yips!

When Jimmy G. left the game (after a spectacular circus TD catch by rookie Austin Carr), third-string quarterback Jacoby Brisett took over. He's still sailing balls over people's heads and has poor touch, but he's good in other areas. Still needs lots of work!

Six years ago, Bill Belichick initiated joint practice with a team (1 out of 4) they would face in the preseason. Years ago some NFL teams would hold joint scrimmages but the practice fell out of favor until BB revived it. This year the Patriots will be holding joint practices with 3 out of 4 teams. Since joint practices allow teams to beat up other guys rather than their own teammates, the players like it, and so much work gets done, the starters can sit out the first game.

Next game is against the Houston Texans. They are attending Texans' training camp in Greenbrier, West Virginia and flew down on two, brand-spanking-new private airplanes bought by the Pats owners, the Kraft family. The planes are Airkraft One and Two. ;)

Going to try giving this long-form posting thing a try again. We'll see if I actually click the button on this. :-)

This morning, I opted to sneak downstairs and grab breakfast and return to my room with it shortly after waking up instead of waiting until I'm actually ready for the day. This has the benefit of me not ending up starving and with low blood sugar by the time I'm ready to hit the door. :-D So I thought I'd take this extra time I've given myself and post a bit about VividCon.

Thursday )

Friday )

All in all, a really great time so far. Looking forward to day 2. Club Vivid tonight!
