Yeah Dino. I don't think NE is a runaway in the East like they have been in the past. But they did add a lot in the offseason; six picks in the first 3 rounds and some quality FA's too. They'll be very good and probably better in the back half of the season. They went 11-5 without Brady. It seems wishful thinking (as much as anything) that they won't make the playoffs. Funny, but I'll bet Maroney finally has a good season. He seems focused, healthy and determined (contract year, of course).
Been awhile since the Patriots have won it all, though. Remains to be seen if the championship pedigree is still in place.

Ok, the did make some picks in the draft, but it isn't like they got a guy who is going to start and blow the NFL away. They picked up a Safety at 34, a DL at 40, DB from Uconn at 41 OT at 58 and WR Tate at 83. These aren't guys that are going to fix their defense this season.

They brough in Springs at Corner from the Skins, he's 34 years old, he isn't scaring me at this point. And Bodden, he was a Brown from 03-07. Not worried about Bodden, pretty sure we have game tape on him.

Fred Taylor will take reps away from Maroney, maybe that's a good thing for them, we'll see.

Anyway, the didn't make that "randy moss" signing this off season so I'm not sure how they improve that greatly on the D side of the ball. We'll see, but they lost last year and in the Super Bowl because their D wasn't what it needed to be.

Yup, defense is still "to be determined." But Derrick Burgess for a 3rd and 5th next year will help their anemic pass rush.

They ain't Pgh. on that side of the ball.
