What if instead of the injury that Brady suffered in the first game of the 08 season, brady instead is sitting out the 08 season because he wants more money after the insane numbers that he put up last year?? BB will most likely stick with QBs in his system, like Cassel, instead of going out and sign guys like Favre or Penington. BB had brady in the system, so it makes sense that BB will give another QB in their system a chance. So in a sense the patriots and their fans are fated in this 08 season to be with out Tom Brady. BB did keep the high draft pick last year instead of trading down knowing that Tom Brady is sitting out this season due to contract dispute. And besides this 08 patriots will be like the patriots after the Tom Brady era, so if they dominate in this 08 season, then the rest of the NFL better watch out cause this patriot machine just keeps rolling.
