It’s the start of a new season, and the new year brings fresh challenges for Bill Belichick and the Patriots. In Sunday’s regular-season opener against the Bills in Buffalo, Belichick will be facing someone in Doug Marrone who has zero experience as a head coach in the NFL.

FOXBORO -- Just before 11 p.m. on Thursday, the Patriots’ 2013 preseason came to a close. And it was officially time to start thinking about real football again.

FOXBORO -- In the words of Red: “Hope is a dangerous thing. Hope can drive a man insane.”

Quite simply, this is a week where a lot of dreams will die.

So, are you a glass-is-half-full individual? If so, you’re encouraged by the sight of rookie receiver Kenbrell Thompkins coming away with eight catches for 116 yards, as well as the sight of the Patriots No. 1 defense -- without Vince Wilfork -- playing very well when it counted.

Even by Tom Brady’s standards, the quarterback has had a tremendous start to his 2013 preseason.

FOXBORO -- If you were a New England skill position player who wasn’t targeted at least once in Friday night against the Bucs, you should probably be concerned.

After an offseason where roughly 8,435,117 stories were written about the impending downfall of the Patriots (and the passing game in particular), quarterback Tom Brady went out Friday night and put the NFL on notice: if you want to write off the New England passing game, well, you’ll do so at your own pe

FOXBORO -- The defining characteristic of the Patriots offense the last two seasons has been its uptempo, no-huddle approach. In 2011 and 2012, the Patriots went no-huddle on 25 percent of their snaps, an astounding total that allowed them to push the pace and keep opposing defenses off guard.

Tom Brady turned 36 Saturday, and while there has been some question as to whether or not the Patriots are putting too much on his shoulders this season with such dramatic turnover at the wide receiver spot, history tells us that no matter the personnel, some of the best quarterbacks in the history of the game have saved

FOXBORO -- Over the first two training camp practices, it’s clear that the Patriots rookie receivers are being thrown into the deep end of the practice pool.

In hindsight, Bill Belichick deciding to cultivate a relationship with Urban Meyer might not have been such a hot idea for the Patriots.

In the end, there wasn’t a question as to whether or not it was going to be a happy ending for Aaron Hernandez. Instead, it was all just varying degrees of bad and sad for everyone involved.

In the wake of the most eventful offseason in recent franchise history, there are two distinct ways to look at the state of the Patriots.

1. In the wake of Hernandez’s connection to the recent murder of Odin Lloyd, it’s important to remember that even if the Patriots tight end is completely exonerated, he will almost certainly face discipline from the NFL.

  With the spring practices -- OTAs and minicamps -- now completed, the 2013 Patriots are starting to come into sharper focus. And inevitably, while there are guys who appear to be roster locks, there are also players who -- at least as of right now -- appear to be on the bubble when it comes to making decisions on the 53-man roster.

So Tim Tebow is coming to Foxboro. What does this mean for the Patriots?

LeGarrette Blount is a big guy. But truth be told, he’s not much bigger than most of the running backs Bill Belichick has worked with over the course of his coaching career in New England.
