Interesting article. Time for everybody to get their surgeries done.

They better keep Green Ellis.

I always thought that Brady was a good quarterback, no better than any other in the league. Most times he chokes on a long pass to a wide open man. He has made some. So could I with protection in 2 out of 10 passes and I'm not a quarterback. And when he blows a pass or is intercepted, it is usually when the game is on the line, especially in a playoff situation. He can surely march a team down the field in two minutes when the defense is in a drop back prevent situation. Damm, I could do it too because there usually isn't much of a rush. And when there is, he can't get out of his own way like the other guy they had by the name of Bledsoe. If the Patriots had an above average quarterback, they would have one a couple more Superbowls. I would have kept Matt Cassell in place of Brady anyday. Look what he did when he started for the injured Brady ( 11-4). Cassell did get to the playoffs with a not so good team. The Patriots did not get much further with a great team and supposedly the best quarterback in history.

Wrong Donald. This team is a good team but not yet a GREAT team. You do know that most of these players are NEW to the NFL don't you? Most have never been to a playoff game. Still they did very well this year and with 6 picks in the first three draft rounds this is definitely a team that can put it together for more Super Bowl wins. Brady is an elite QB and no one should count them out.

I was listening to a Patriots talk show "PFW in Progress." They talk about the Patriots being more of a finesse team much like the Colts. I agree with this to some extent. When the offense breaks down we don't have the guys to grind out a victory. Cory Dillon was that kind of guy. Parcells may have been better at picking the guys "who get it" on offense - a phrase, I believe, he coined. But this is debatable and, to Belichick's credit, Crumpler was a great acquisition who can play in the dirt.
.
We need to beef up the line on both sides of the ball with the high draft picks and acquire that rushing OLB everyone's keeps mentioning. At the skill positions a Cory Dillon type would be great and, of course, Larry Fitzgerald - but the price for him will likely be too high until his contract expires after next season.
.
To the point in your comment, we can't do it all in the draft; there will have to be some free agent help. I think the CBA will get done and I believe it will bolster teams like Patriots and Steelers who build their teams up from the ground.

Definitely need that long ball threat back.

It's a no-brainer with an arm like Brady's.

Feel the love hehehe

Of course you are just trolling spreading your hate for successful people things, sad really.

Cheer up your life cannot be that bad.

Remember

It's never too late to be who you might have been.
