FOXBORO — He may have lost the championship belt, but Brandon McGowan can still pack a powerful punch.

FOXBORO — Fred Taylor is up for a challenge. The 33-year-old running back was asked Monday if he could handle 20 to 25 carries the rest of the season for the Patriots. While he acknowledged the need to pace himself, he certainly sounded like a man who could warm to such a plan.

FOXBORO — In a recent meeting, Patriots coach Bill Belichick stood before his players and threw down the gauntlet.

FOXBORO — For a team that prides itself on its special teams play, what happened to the Patriots on Sunday was inexcusable.

Stand back — it's time to open up the inaugural football mailbag and dive in. I’ll be taking your Patriots-related e-mails here every week and publishing the best questions every Wednesday. I welcome any reasonable questions at cprice@weei.com. Knock yourselves out. -- Hey Chris,

Through the first two games of the season, the Patriots offense has had trouble finishing what it has started.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The last time Tom Brady walked out of Giants Stadium a loser, it was Sept. 11, 2000, and he was a rookie sitting behind Drew Bledsoe (and John Friesz and Michael Bishop) who watched Vinny Testaverde and Wayne Chrebet lead the Jets over the Patriots, 20-19.

If you’re a Patriots fan, it’s almost impossible to get nostalgic about the Meadowlands.

Different uniforms, same defense. The Patriots will be facing a stern test with the all-new Jets defense on Sunday, but when it comes to putting together an offensive game plan, there’s no need to start from scratch. Instead, they just need to call up some film of the great Baltimore defenses of the last few years.

FOXBORO — Jerod Mayo is the leader of the new school, the acknowledged chief of a younger generation of Patriots linebackers.

The calendar says mid-September, but as far as the Jets are concerned, it’s looking more like the first weekend of February.

FOXBORO — There was 5:32 left in the fourth quarter Monday night and the Patriots were down 24-13 to Buffalo when Tom Brady stepped into the huddle. “We’re going to win this game,” the quarterback told his teammates.

Based on six-plus weeks of training camp and preseason, we can say with some certainty that we’ve learned a few truths about the 2009 Patriots even before they’ve kicked off the regular season.

While much has been written and said about the dynamic turnover of the Patriots defense this offseason, no position has undergone greater change than the secondary.

It’s the opener for everyone, which means that whether you are getting set to play your first game in the NFL — like Pat Chung, Ron Brace or any one of the other Patriots rookies who made the 53-man roster — or starting your 35th s

The letter has been delivered. According to multiple reports Thursday night, the Raiders officially have sent disgruntled defensive lineman Richard Seymour the much-discussed “five-day letter,” which gives Seymour five days to report to Oakland to take his physical.

More details about Sunday’s trade of Richard Seymour to Oakland started to come to light Tuesday -- particularly the timeline of events that ended with the five-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman becoming the property of the Raiders.

Holiday or no, the Patriots continued their roster-tweaking Monday, cutting veteran wide receiver Greg Lewis, signing rookie defensive back Bret Lockett and officially adding seven players to their practice squad.

The news came on a quiet Sunday morning of Labor Day weekend, complete with multiple exclamation points: Richard Seymour traded! Five-time Pro Bowler shipped to Raiders! Patriots losing respected leader!

FOXBOROUGH -- If Benjamin Watson is released Saturday after five seasons with the Patriots, he sounds like a man who has made peace with his situation.
