I'm sure it's too early to post this, but what the heck..... Here are some random predictions for various things Patriots-related: 1. Brady will throw for between 4,500-4,700 yards. He will not get to 5,000 yards. 2. Brady will throw for 38 TD or more. 3. Gronkowski will catch "only" 11-13 TDs this year and will see his numbers decrease across the board from last year. IMO, this won't mean that he's gotten worse, just that the Pats will have so many other options and teams will really focus on Gronk. 4. Jones will have 8 sacks, which is fewer than Mark Anderson had last year, but it's a number that we'll be happy with. He will also bring a better all-around game than Anderson did and he'll be a force in both run and pass defense. 5. Bequette will have 6-8 sacks as well, in what probably will seem like a bit of a surprise. 6. Hightower will be #2 on the team in tackles, behind Mayo. 7. Vereen will finish the year with more combined rushing/receiving yards than Ridley, somewhere in the 1,200 range. 8. Demps will score three TDs on the year - two on returns, and one either rushing or on a little screen-type pass - and all three will be jaw-dropping. 9. The Patriots will finish with the #1 scoring offense and the #2 yardage offense in the NFL. 10. They will finish with a scoring defense ranked in the top 8, and a yardage defense ranked in the top 15 - both will be huge improvements over last year, but it will not put NE in the "elite" defense category. 11. They will win 13-14 games and get the #1 seed in the AFC. 12. The Patriots will play the Packers in the Super Bowl, and it will come down to the last drive of the game, either way.
