This is my Patriots Season Preview: Offense:I am so excited about this Pats offense this season. The offense this year for the Pats has the potential to be one of the best offenses in our Dynasty run. First and foremost the offense starts off with a guy by the name of Tom Brady. If you haven't heard of him for some reason, then you will find out that he is a pretty good QB. In fact he is a top 3 QB in this league. Tom is coming off one of his best seasons statistically, but he has never been a guy who has put up big numbers. This year I expect some of Tom's numbers to go down a bit, but some of his numbers also to go up like TD passes. At Runningback, the Pats now have a lot more talent as well as depth thanks to the draft pick of Laurence Maroney at pick 21. Maroney definately won't start this year and won't win OROY, but here is a guy who will keep Corey Dillon healthy for a full year. Dillon was often injured last year and nobody behind him could pick up the slack. That took the Pats out of their game offensively and it also kept an injury-plagued defense out on the field for a long time. This year I expect the running attack of the Pats to be at full strength throughout the whole season. At Wide Reciever, the Pats suffered from a couple of big losses including David Givens and Andre Davis. We had a huge hole at WR until we signed Reche Caldwell in FA and we drafted possibly the best WR in the draft in Chad Jackson. We also drafted a couple of pass catchers through the draft with David Thomas and Garrett Mills who bothe will help the Pats have a better season in the red zone. Also I expect a HUGE year from Ben Watson as well. On the Offensive Line, the Pats will be very strong once again as we have both depth and talent. We get back Matt Light and Dan Koppen and we get Nick Kazcur and Logan Mankins one year more mature. We also managed to sign Stephen Neal which may be the best signing in the offseason. This O-line has the potential to dominate games this season for the Pats. Projected Stats for the Pats: Tom Brady: 310/495, 3750 yards, 31 TD's, 12 INT's, 101.0 Rating Corey Dillon: 264 attempts, 1098 yards, 11 TD's, 1 FUM Laurence Maroney: 115 attempts, 561 yards, 3 TD's, 1 FUM Deion Branch: 81 catches, 1086 yards, 5 TD's Reche Caldwell: 31 catches, 324 yards, 1 TD Chad Jackson: 41 catches, 537 yards, 4 TD's Ben Watson: 53 catches, 811 yards, 7 TD's Defense:Last year the Pats struggled defensively aminly because of injuries. Late in the season when the Pats were healthy, there were many improvements to our defense. This year I expect the Pats defense to be a top 10 defense in the NFL. When you look at our 3-4 defense, you must first look at our D-Line which may be one of the best in football. Vince Wilfork is a very underrated NT who keeps getting better and better. Richard Seymour when healthy is a top 3 DE in this league and Ty Warren is also very underrated on our line. We also have a lot of depth on the line including Jarvis Green, Le Kevin Smith, and Marquise Hill. Our LB corps took a big fall this offseason when we lost Willie McGinest, but we do still have three very good LB's to work with. Tedy Bruschi is one of the most underrated LB's in the league and may be looked at as the heart of the defense. Rosie Colvin and Mike Vrabel are very good as OLB's for us. We may have struggles early on with finding a replacement for Willie, but I feel Monty Beisel can fill the hole. Inside Beisel struggled a lot last year, but in the offseason he has had great reports from Belichick and is said to be up to 250 pounds which is a big improvement from 235 pounds. At Defensive Back, the Pats struggled a ton last year, but this year we should improve a lot as we have got rid of our big problems in Duane Starks and Ty Poole. We replaced them with Eric Warfield, a healthy Chad Scott, and a healthy Randall Gay. We also have Asante Samuel and my man Ellis Hobbs. At safety we get back Rodney Harrison to go along with Eugene Wilson. We also have a lot of depth as well with Tebucky Jones, James Sanders, Artell Hawkins, and Guss Scott. Eugene struggled a bit last year, but should get back to full form when Rodney comes back. Special Teams:As everyone knows the Pats lost the most clutch kicker in the history of this game in Adam Vinatieri. It will be extremely hard to replace him. We signed Martin Gramatica and drafted Stephen Gostkowski to try to fill the hole. Gramatica will probably be released so the kicking duties will probably be put into the hands of Stephen. I am also excited about our return game as well as there could be a chance that Bam Childress or Willie Andrews could give us a good return game. Projected Record for the Pats: 13-3. I expect the Pats to have a much better year this year. Last year we went 11-5 and had one of the hardest schedules in the NFL. This year our schedule is a whole lot better and we finally are healthy as a team. I expect the Pats to win their division over the Dolphins and then shoot for Super Bowl #3 in the last five years as we keep battling the critics and doubters.
