Coming into an established system, with this quarterback, and this head coach...

...yeah, he's off to a good start; he should be starting opposite Cooks before too long with Snead in the slot...

Familiar theme: Turnovers, we beat ourselves with our own mistakes...

There were some bright spots though: DE Kasim Edebali, NT Tyeler Davison, WR Michael Thomas, CB De'Vante Harris, FS Erik Harris, C Jack Allen and RB Marcus Murphy

I saw on one of the tweets that he rolled his ankle. Not sure if it was due to a block or a hit.

Re: Game Day - Preseason Week 1: New Orleans Saints @ New England Patriots

i were really impressed with roman harper he can play that olb spot as the best of them. he turned in plays from both spots to not allow any gain. liked what i saw with him. if we go thru another kicker debacle i'm gonna awol. why do we always have kickers that have that deer in the headlights look, practice is bulls%^t when it comes to live action.here we go again.

Week 1 of the NFL preseason got under way last night, with 12 teams taking the field for the first time. Below is a recap of all six games, highlighting the biggest takeaways from each contest.

Patriots 34, Saints 22

QB Jimmy Garoppolo finished the game with an average overall grade, but he also had an adjusted completion percentage of just 61.1 percent, third-lowest among QBs with at least five pass attempts. Still, he found Malcolm Mitchell (Georgia) on a well-thrown deep pass and went 9-for-13 when not under pressure. The big story, though, should be defensive end Trey Flowers’ outstanding performance. In total, he finished with three hurries, a hit, and a sack that turned into a fumble that he also recovered and returned for a touchdown. Jabaal Sheard also forced a fumble, and easily handled the Saints’ offensive line for most of the time he was on the field.

[More: See Steve Palazzolo’s interview with Patriots DE Trey Flowers at training camp.]

It was a good start to the year for the Saints’ top two draft picks. First-round pick DT Sheldon Rankins (Louisville) beat Shaq Mason for a hit and a hurry, and also chased down a screen pass for a tackle for short gain. WR Michael Thomas (Ohio State) did have a dropped pass, although that was his only bad play of the game. Thomas still caught four passes for 67 yards, and was quite impressive making plays.

So other than Mark Ingram's gaffe, other starters looked better than last year...

Black and Gold, we do, in fact, have an effective Nose Tackle on the roster...
