What an incredible year by the pats. Super proud of this team. Anytime you go into a season with the second youngest team in the league its going to be tough, But then to lose all of the defensive leaders(wilfork, Mayo), Their backups (kelly, Spikes) Play multiple games without your number 1 CB(talib) And before the season even starts you lose your number 1 tight end to more surgery on his arm, your number 2 te to retardation and murder, And you come into the season with 3 rookies, 1 backup slot guy, a new number one slot guy(who you lose week 1) It's INCREDIBLE how we made it to the AFCCG. Moving into 2014, we have 2 young receivers who should excel, kids that got more playing time then they could have ever expected coming into the season(dobson, thompkins) We have 2 young Defensive linemen who were expected to be third stringers who came in and exceled and got better as the season went along. We have a young CB who has shown signs of being a future number 1 We are only a couple of pieces away, and this offseason cant possibly be as bad as the one we had the year before. The future is incredibly bright for us pats fans.
