We will not lose because of a defense that Bill Belechick had enough confidence in to not add a lot of players to. The offense is full of skill position players. The key to the 2006 Pats is going to be the OL. The will either succeed or fail in: 1) Protecting Brady. Brady will be great regardless of how much protection he has, but the easier the OL makes it for him, the more the pieces all come together for a Championship season 2) Allow a controlling running game. If we can run when we want to and control the clock, opportunities open up for Brady with big plays, and the defenses job become easier. The D is going to be good, but if we cant run the ball, they will be under pressure. If we ease the pressure on the D by playing from ahead and controlling filed position and clock, it can be an excellent D. I'm pretty confident in the OL, but as clearly as secondary injuries hurt us last year, I think the OL ones were devastating too. To me, an OL that takes th enext natural step of development (i.e. Mankins, Kaczur and the depth progressing as expected) and stays healthy equals a very good shot at a Patriot Championship.
