We are one of the top 6 teams in the nfl. ======================================= We have just won our second significant game on the road. We didn't win any last year. Our offense was #1 in points scored and will still be near the top after the weekend is complete. Our defense has been improving every week, with lots and lots of players contributing. Who expected major contributions from Deaderick, Fletcher, Ninkovich and Arrington? Who expected any contribution from Crable? Our special teams are much improved (see the Miami game). We now have returners. ============================================== There is room for improvement, but we are 5-1 without Bodden, Warren, Faulk and Mankins. ============================================== While Moss is gone, we've added Branch. It remains to be seen how this will work out. For now, it seems that the offense will be more to the likeing of many of us with Brady dinking and dunking to the open man, depending on no particular target. I had hoped this would have been possible with Moss still on the team. ============================================== Scheming, play-calling and second half adjustments are much improved. ============================================== We can whine and moan if we wish, but we are in as good a position to win the Super Bowl as any team in the league, with the possible exception of Pittsburgh.
