I realize that the Lions were not playing their starters. I understand this is pre-season. I get that the Lions were using vanilla formations. I also realize that NE is the defending NFL Super Bowl Champions. I also know NE was not playing their starters. I also get that NE was not showing their playbook either. That being said it was like watching men play against boys. The Lions we so over matched it was not funny. The NE depth must be far greater than the Lions depth. I am not sounding the alarms just yet, but I am on standby. I thought our OL play was terrible, non-existent TE’s, QB play especially Fales was awful. What running game? Did not see anything from the WR group. DL was HOLY MOLY - emphasis on HOLY. Wow 5-0 was impressive at LB (not). CB play was spotty, Safety was a little better.
I hope to see a marked improvement next pre-season game - even if it is just a pre-seaon game!
