Hammermill's take afc east
Struggled early in the year,all the way to a 4-1 record.
While Brady seemed to struggle with new wideouts,the running game picked up the slack.
Looks like a new offense in NE,Instead of the smurf wide recievers of the past,Tall WR's are the norm.
The "smash" and "grab" offense of Dillion and Maroney should give NE everything they need until Brady gets comfortable.
Dillion smashes the D in the face ,While Maroney grabs yards.
While the pats D has some challenges.
They have one of the best d-lines in the league.
While old at lb they still have alot of play makers.
The secondary is still looking for somone other than Harrison to stand out(and him to get back to what fans are use to seeing).
NE is built for the afc east
A surprise team.
Mangini has them moving in the right direction,much still has to be done.
Pennington has been stellar(just can't last)
same with the rb's,.
The D has over succeded.
Not trying to dis-respect them,they have some good players,vilma,rhodes
but there success has been more about coaching than the personnel.
Good coaching(like the jets)
They have 2/3 of a very good team.
Defense and Special teams are great.
Offense is well offensive!
Welcome to vegas east.
They gambled on ricky williams,dante culpepper,even david boston years ago.
Looks like joey Harrington MIGHT be the best of the bunch.
Many pundits picked them as the TEAM,Guess they were wrong.
They have good personnel on both offense and defense but have self destructed.
When you HC can't even throw a challange flag,your in trouble.
