Should Pats fans be concerned somewhat, even though it's preseason?
Outside of Brady, their QBs blow
The D got run over for the 2nd straight week in a row

Here's how I look at the Pats:
-Tom Brady is one of two elite QBs.
-Laurence Mauroney is an awful running back and Lamont Jordan has been described as a guy who doesn't care about conditioning.
-The offensive line definitely has weaknesses, especially on the right side.
-WR core is still easily the best in the NFL.
-This is Richard Seymour's last year with the Pats.
-Adalius Thomas was a bust free agent signing.
-Worst secondary in the AFC.
Ive hated Hobbs with a passion after the superbowl. Im not too worried unless Brady gets injured. Our D-line can't have gone from the best front 3 to crap in one offseason and Bellichek will make smt happen with his smoke and mirrors
How is Laurence Maroney awful??? Maroney is a beast.
If you watch any of the second half games (minus Jets/Dolphins), teams like the Ravens, Eagles and Giants could basically get away with disregarding him. He pretty much ends up shooting himself in the foot anyways as he constantly falls and runs backwards and usually goes dead on contact.
The trouble is that they're in such a weak division (apart from the Bills, possibly) that they're almost guaranteed to make the playoffs. Once they get there, anything can happen: like phenomenal waffles has said, they can blow away any opposition in a shoot-out; TRICKaz has already pointed out how Belichick can make things happen for them, too.
The beginning of wisdom is found in doubting; by doubting we come to the question, and by seeking we may come upon the truth.
