From his column of ten predictions: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2008/writers/don_banks/09/04/crystal.ball/index.html I'm sorry, but I must be missing something. How does this o-line go from being arguably the best pass blocking o-line last year other than the Super Bowl to swiss cheese because they don't have one of their starters back from last season (at least for the first six games)? I know the o-line looked like crap this preseason, but they played most of the preseason without Matt Light and his return in the last game did actually help to stablize the o-line quite a bit. This isn't the worst o-line the Pats have fielded to protect Brady in his career and he hasn't gone down. Why now? I don't believe that teams "sending the house" to blitz Brady is going to make a difference because Brady was the most blitzed QB in the league last year. Few teams in the NFL have the front seven that the Giants had last year to disrupt the line like they did. In fact, I hope teams blitz a lot because Brady has destroyed defenses who blitzed him far more than they have gotten to him. If you blitz Brady and fail to get to him, you are not going to win the game because Brady will put 30 plus points on you. Banks seems to be forgetting that Brady has one of the best pocket prescense in the history of the NFL and can step up to avoid the blitz even if the o-line cannot contain the edge rush.
