A little bit I'm grasping at straws here, though.
Righto - I see you grasping at straws all the way.
Fact is we really measure up favorably, against every single other team in the NFL.
Only in San Diego will you find a team even remotely as complete in every phase of the game as NE.
Name me a running back group of four you would take over ours ( I am not talking one or two - I mean taken as a group).
Secondary is deeper than anywhere and as talented as any, even with the suspensions and injury.
TE blocking - are you kidding - Kyle Brady solves that.
Pass blocking - other than occasional trouble with speed rushers around Light (which they can scheme), Brady is safe. Please do not tel me about one exhibition game.
LB'ers - don't even think about telling me how old and slow they are - two or three may be old, but they also are top notch all the way.
#12 will be just fine thank you - look at his WR's please tell me you are not worried about him - and it starts next week. Be ready for the Jets being blown out.
The Ghost is fine......I am not concerned at all.
The DL - even with RS pupped is the best in the NFL, bar none. Green & Wright start for most other teams and Le Kevin will be a force.
Guys we are winning 12, 13 or 14 games no doubt...maybe even more. We are that good and all that this regular season will do is point to rematch with SD maybe Indy or a surprise overachiever.
