    Tom Brady
    Kevin Faulk
    Stephen Gostkowski
    Matt Light
    Logan Mankins
    Wes Welker
    Vince Wilfork

    IR - Dan Koppen
    IR - Mike Wright

    9 Including IR but I don't count them as they won't play. How amazing is this? Almost a complete roster overhaul in 4 years and we are back in it. I think it says a lot about our coaches and the amazing job they've done. Fantastic organisation and management. Hats off to the Patriots!!

    6 Pro Bowlers and a guy who was among the best in the league at his (part-time) position.

    That's why I've said that while this might be a redemption game for the above 7 players, for the vast bulk of the team 2007 means nothing. The only group in need of redemption here are the FANS.

    So for the next 2 weeks it will be the FANS who will have to endure the repeated images of a very painful event, in order to get any payback. For the other 46 guys 2007 will have as much meaning as 1995 or 1985....or any other Patriot loss of the last 50 years

    BOTTOM LINE - 2007 is nothing more than a media driven story line and potential shot of catharsis for Pats fans

    I could add that:

    1. Most of that returning talent is on offense.
    2. The talent that has been added on offense in the interim (Gronk/Waters/Hernandez/et al.) rivals the talent that has been added on defense.

    Exactly which is why all this talk and fear of the Giants is based on irrationality.

    Pretty amazing that the team has been completely overhauled in 4 years. During that time, the Patriots have been the #1 seed 3 times and are already headed back to the Superbowl. How many teams can do that in such a short span of time? Btw, I heard the Giants have 15 players from SB42.

    All of them are on IR, and thus unavailable to play in the SB.

    The Giants have more players still on their roster than I figured they would: ten starters and 17 total by my count.
