There wasn't much of anything positive to take out of last Thursday's offensive performance against the Lions.

That got Mike Felger wondering if the Patriots' offensive line really is a concern heading into the season.

"I thought the offensive line was going to be a strength of this team. I still do, I still do. But they ran the ball like poo the other night," Felger said. "They didn't run it for anything. And then once Detroit got going, they stated beating [Nate] Solder and [Sebastian] Vollmer off the edge. And we saw that thing with Brady where he starts ducking before it really even got there. And you start to add that all up and ask, 'Wow, could that really happen to them this year? Or was that really just a one-time thing?

Ben Volin of the Boston Globe and Albert Breer of NFL Network give their takes, but we want to hear from you.
