The main difference I see so far between the 03/early 04 and the 05 Pats? Turnovers. Good God, I've already lost count of how many the defense forced. Rodney's forcing fumbles and grabbing INTs. Poole, Wilson, and Law are bringing in the INTs as well. Phifer, Bruschi, and McGinest are forcing fumbles left and right. What else? The running game. Smith. Faulk. Cloud. Cutting left, cutting right, running over defenders. Also - special teams. Izzo and Chatham. Johnson and Brown. Man, just has me thinking what would have happened if the Pats stayed healthier this past season and had the magical, consummate team chemistry combined with solid coaching. We need Rodney back. The 'swagger' needs to return to this team. That's something I noticed the lack of such this entire season. Be it the loss of RAC and WC, Bruschi early, Rodney early, hits to the line and defensive backfield, but I always had the feeling something wasn't quite right. 2006 needs to come. Fast.
