It's amazing that it takes a month-long lockout to get people riled up about the release of the NFL's preseason schedule, but now that it's out, how do Patriots fans feel about their opponents — Jacksonville, Tampa Bay, Detroit, New York Giants?
Do you think it's a good thing that they'll be playing against four teams with a 4-3 defensive base? Do you want the Patriots to schedule more joint practice sessions, which they may do during their trip to Detroit?
And then there's the issue with Randy Moss. Whether or not the rumors are true, would you like to see him in a Jets uniform next season?
There will also be an increased amount of draft talk this week, as Patriots director of player personnel Nick Caserio will meet with the media Thursday to discuss the scouting process. Is there anything on your mind with the draft just two weeks away?
