so the patriots are the best? thats gonna be an expensive unit to keep together... im thinking management prefers it when theyre players were just "disrespected"
I honestly don't think the Patriots will ever find themselves in a position where they are being held hostage by a Guard.
In my opinion, the Patriots have the best O-lione co-ord in the NFL (by some distance) - when you look at the production gained from mostly low round/undrafted guys its pretty phenomonal.
They appear to get better in the postseason too.
Centre and LT are the key positions - the Patriots are set at both for the time being - we have plenty of guys on the roster who have been learning and improving in the background for a few years.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
