    I think that it would be extremely difficult to pull off what they did in 2007 but 450-500 is definitely a possibility. I think it's really going to come down to how well our defense holds up and whether or not we can grind it out a little better than last year on the ground when the weather starts getting nasty. Our run game is definitely better than the average NFL fan gives us credit for but we are definitely a passing team first.

    The highest scoring team last year was San Diego with 439. But the Pats weren't far behind with 410. If they can score 410 with Cassell, I don't see why they can't approach 500 with Brady back.

    I'd hope for somewhere around 490-520 points, around 31-32/game.

    Considering we got pretty young secondary and revamped defense, I expect Pats to be in a lot of shootouts beginning of the season.....550+....

    2007 was a once in a generation thing, I'm not expecting a repeat. Even the very low end of 400 points is respectable by NFL standards; that's 25 points per game. 28 ppg is considered to be very good and would be better than what all 32 teams did last year, yet that is less then 450 points. And 31 points is a big number to attain in a game, but is a huge number to average throughout the entire season - yet that is less than 500 points total.

    I would say that 450-500 is an optimistic goal but would not be the least bit surprised with a total in the 400-450 range.

    The Saints had 28.9 ppg last year.

    I'll say one thousand and twelve (Fred Smerlas).

    i think the pats should run the bar more often this year than in 07' and kill the clock. this is how we used to do it back in 03 and 04. i love that style of football. therefore, scoring fewer points could actually be a very good thing.

    Shoot me, I went off the comments from a previous poster.

    The point is still valid; 28 points per game is still considered to be a very good number and would normally be the league's best - yet we're talking about routinely scoring much more than that.
