I'm stuck in India without much else to do, so I watched them in their entirety. It is amazing how many huge plays Ty Law and Rodney were involved in those 2 years. Seemed like they were there for every key play. Anyway, my point is that the fact that the Pats got as far as they did this year without either of them (or equivalent replacements) and that they SHOULD have gone even further makes me very hopeful for next year. Presuming we get Rodney and/or an equivalent replacement, of course.
