    I was very,very concerned when Matt Light went down but Nick has done a very good job.

    Also, what an advantage a young lineman has being on a team with Dante as a coach.

    Ya gotta love the future of the Pats O-Line, with Mankins, Kaczur, Koppen, Light.....and maybe Neal. Add to that some young stars on offense with Super Bowl experience with Branch and Givens (both 26 I believe), Watson (who had a nice season, and will only get better). Brady will only be 29 when the season starts, so the only old man is Dillon. Hopefully he can pull a Curtis Martin and give us some great years in his early 30's.

    It's actually pronounced Kă-zur. (Per the Depth Chart I got at the Saints preseason game in the Fidelty Clubhouse...handed out by the Pats)

    :D

    I was going through our offensive depth chart, too, with a smile at the youth and talent. Even our backup QB is cause for optimism. The only cloud on the horizon is the fact that Branch, Givens, Koppen, Neal and Graham are all coming to the end of their contracts. If we can resign the whole bunch, this unit will just get better and better every year they play together.

    Add DeAngelo Williams this roster, and we're set for at least another three years.

    Deangelo Williams may be a little bit of wishfull thinking. Unless BB and SP think he is the end all be all, and we use our #1 pick and trade up, we will not see DeAngelo as a Patriot. Look for a second or third round developemental running back (just a guess). With the questions on defense (age, depth), especially at Linebacker and the secondary, I would be suprised if we didn't go for those positions in the first 2 rounds. Then again, I was suprised with the Mankins pick (pleasantly suprised now).

    Yeah, I agree with that. We need youth in the LB corp more than anywhere else. Honestly, I dont even think we need to spend a 2nd or 3rd at RB. I'd be happy with a 5th rounder to play STs for a few years. Dillon is under wraps for another season... Faulk, Pass, Evans are all versatile and reliable. We can afford to wait a year or so, and once the D is re-stocked, draft a legitimate franchise RB.
