1) We are heavy division favorties, as expected. 2) We are not Super Bowl favorites as we were before we traded Seymour in order to potentially better the 2012-2015 teams (giving the rook a year to develop). 3) The defense has been completely rebuilt in the last couple of years except for Warren, Wilfork and Thomas. We'll see about Wilfork and Thomas in the offseason. 4) Belichick doesn't want any top coordinators in the coaching staff. ===================================================== The goal is to be competitive for the Super Bowl each year. If only the goal were to win in 2009.
