    Are the Patriots in a transition phase or a rebuilding phase? According to Andy Gresh on today's Tanguay and Zolak show on 98.5 the Sports hub, a football team that is rebuilding tends to have a record of 7-9 or 6 -10. The Patriots are still in the playoffs and just won the AFC East. I believe they are in a transition phase, because of there defense. With the personnel decisions the Pats made starting with trading Mike Vrabel and then trading Richard Seymour the writing was on the wall that the defense was starting over.

    I don't think there is anything wrong with the word transition. I just wish they decided to change the defense starting in 2006 and did a gradual change. After the AFC Championship game in 2006 the Pats seemed to change the focus of the team heavily to there offense. With bringing in Randy Moss the mentality of the team was changing. The focus was on outscoring the opponent rather than stopping the opponent.

    Offense can win many games, but I believe defense wins championships. The 3 Superbowl trophies I think were won more on defense. The reason they lost in the 2007 was on defense.
    The Pats are transitioning to upgrade the defense. They will not win another Super Bowl until the defense is upgraded. They have started the process and it is called the transition phase.

    Simply the Pats are always rebuilding.. and planning for the future, while they focus on the next game. It has been said that BB has a plan for just about everything..

    You play to your strengths, Baltimore has Ray Lewis and Ed Reed... NE has Brady, Moss and up to last sunday Wes Welker... in the 80's the Giants built their teams around the LB's, SF built their team around Montana..

    If the pats all of a sudden found that new D franchise player and some complimentary folks their emphasis may change as well....

    Andy Gresch.... what a media fool, find that he has about the least credibility of any of the sports talkers...

    While I agree with you that defense is important, the 2007 defense was actually pretty good, and we lost the superbowl because we couldn't protect Brady, not because we couldn't play defense....
