I see a lot of predictions that the Pats will finish the 2009 regular season 10-6 or 11-5. This made me think of 2008, when we lost TB during the 1st game, went to a QB who hadn't started high school, had the worst secondary of the BB era forcing us to play a soft zone with little pash rush, and still finished 11-5, closing out the regular season 4-0. So what would have happened if we had had Brady for the full season and this year's talent in the secondary? I obviously don't have a crystal ball, but my initial thought is that we still loose the blowouts to Miami and San Diego, and probably the Pittsburgh game where they pulled away in the second half. But I doubt we lose the Jets or Indy games. I'd guess we would have ended up 13-3 and competing for home field advantage. Just a thought.
