    Considering the replacements, it seems PATs will be better off this season
    than last with the new replacements. The only concern I have is Willie's
    replacement but I think that will work out better than we can see right now.

    The Team will be younger but more experienced with guys like Watson,
    Kaczur, Mankins, Wilfork and Hobbs having a good year in the system.

    Hats off once again to BB/SP they sure know what they are doing.

    it's probably a net gain. we're set up well for the future...just need to nail down branch.

    it will be an adjustment year for jackson.

    for me the season comes down to injuries...if they stay relatively healthy they could absolutely steamroll.

    I'm sure the team knows who will replace Willie but until is fans know I'm going to wide eyed, and gnawing my fingernails.

    It is a net gain for sure, gives Brady a lot of firepower, and along with the O Line haul last year he should get better protection. The variable is injuries, this team needs to have less than last year, very simple, no matter what they do cannot afford to have happen what happened last year. They did a great job coaching up a lot of these young guys, but without Light, Harrison, 1/2 of a Corey Dillon, Koppen and the rest of the injured this team was really hurt.
