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.

FOXBOROUGH -- Michael Matthews is probably going to do a little redecorating.

FOXBOROUGH -- Terrell Owens never disappoints.

FOXBOROUGH -- Logan Mankins can recall the moment like it was yesterday.

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.

FOXBOROUGH -- Before the final Patriots’ preseason game at Gillette Stadium a few years ago, the captains were at midfield before the game for the coin toss joking with each other about how little they were going to play. Linebacker Tedy Bruschi flashed the opposing captains the bottoms of his shoes -- no cleats.

FOXBOROUGH -- They weren’t a bunch of lasers, but Patriots quarterback Tom Brady threw a series of easy passes during the start of practice yesterday, four days after his right shoulder was squashed under the weight of Washington’s 350-pound defensive tackle

FOXBOROUGH -- When he arrived in 1996, pro football in New England wasn’t much more than metal bleachers and dirt parking lots, tiny locker rooms and cold showers. Patriots Place was a gleam in Robert Kraft’s eye, and while the thought of New England playing host to a football dynasty wasn’t laughable, it was a bit of a stretch.

FOXBOROUGH -- The locker now belongs to Roderick Rogers.

This is it. Friday night in Washington is the third preseason game of the year for the Patriots -- traditionally, it’s the preseason game where the starters play the most. It’s the last chance to see a reasonable facsimile of New England’s starting offense and defense in game action before Opening Night against Buffalo Sept. 14.

FOXBOROUGH -- It’s a simple, three-word phrase that is the overarching theme to everything that Patriots coach Bill Belichick preaches: Do your job.
