Have the offseason changes negatively affected the Patriots locker room?

The Patriots improve their record to 4-2 with a win over the Jets, but there are still a lot of concerning factors for New England. Mike Giardi and Dan Koppen talk about something the team isn't used to - close games.

Giardi also dives into whether there is a major problem with the locker room dynamic, and whether all the moves they made in the offseason were blown way out of proportion by the media and fans of the talent added, but didn't factor in the personalities they lost.

Koppen and Giardi also look at how the offensive line play has fallen off, despite the same personnel as last year. Finally, discussing the late scratch of Stephon Gilmore due to a concussion. Anything to read into the timing?

Patriots downgrade Gilmore, Burkhead to out for Sunday vs. Jets

Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore (concussion) and running back Rex Burkhead (ribs) have been ruled out for the game Sunday against the Jets in East Rutherford, N.J.

Gilmore had been listed with an ankle injury earlier in the week but wasn't on the injury report Friday. He had been a limited participant in practice. It's unclear when the concussion occurred. 

It leaves the Pats thin at corner with cornerback Eric Rowe already out with a groin injury.

Burkhead had been listed as questionable but will miss the game with a rib injury. Rookie linebacker Harvey Langi, who was injured along with his wife in a car accident Friday night in Foxboro, was also downgraded to out with a back injury.
