Last season, the Patriots team had what I'd call mid season additions - aka, some of their best players returning to health - Seymour, Bruschi - and it was as comparable to trading deadline moves in baseball. Suddenly we were [back] in the NFL's elite. I don't see such additions coming from the injured list this season, but from the rookies - Chad Jackson, Garrett Mills and Dave Thomas - who up to this point have had little to no contribution. If they all start to contribute and we start to use them, this will be a much more dangerous offense. So far all those disappointed with the offense thus far this season - and I am certainly one, maybe my expectations were too astronomically high - look forward to a few mid season "additions" in the form of 3 talented offensive rookies working their way into the offense. Note: This thread was mainly inspired by a reaction to the silly "trade for somebody!!" talk I heard on the way into work today on EEI.
