    Of course stats can't take away the leadership and tenacity this veteran possessed but when you look at the stats the Patriots have played pretty well without #37 .....

    Patriots stats since 2005 with/without Harrison

    Wins/Losses With Rodney 26-5 - Without Rodney 16-7
    Opponents points per game: With Rodney 18.3 - Without Rodney 18.9
    Opponents Completion % : With Rodney 58.5 - Without Rodney 57.9

    Of course this all goes to say those stats are based on Tom Brady as QB which makes the difference in time the defense spends on the field ect: but shows how similar the defense is when he is out there and not.

    The season is not cancelled or forfeited without Rodney - Just a little sadder :( ....

    26-5 = 83.9%

    16-7 = 69.6%

    I'd consider that a large dropoff.

    In the past we thought we had guys emerging who could step in and step up, and it turned out we wuz wrong... The pro bowlers of the future (annointed and eventual) played like crap without their braniac maniac leader (Geno was perceived as a bonefide stud...), although a much maligned rookie CB replacing the abomination that was Duane Starks mid season eventually helped stabilize us so Tom could drag us to the second round of the playoffs. I do think we're in a little better position this time to absorb the loss on the field within the unit, but absent Brady makes it a much thinner margin for error. On the other hand, the playing field across the AFC is also a lot more level than previously anticipated and injuries could easily alter the course of the couple of teams currently unexpectedly leading that pack.

    #34 Jersey

    So with him they have an additional 10 wins and only two losses. That's kind of a big difference.
