OFFENSE 1. This may be the best offense the nfl has ever seen. If you think that this is hype, compare this team to 2007. Hopefully, we will add Hernandez and Shiancoe to our active top producers soon. 2. We have run a lot of 3 wide receiver sets with Hernandez out. Branch and Edelman haven't done much. 3. The running game is the best of the Belichick era. 200 yards games and 2 100 yard rushers in one game are simply unheard of on a Brady-led offense. We just need to keep 3 running backs healthy. 4. We quietly red-shirted Salas as a future young prospect, paying him over $450K for being on the Practice Squad. 5. Dante is a genius. We can keep on saying Wendell and Thomas have little talent. This wears a bit thin. The OL has been great. We'll be even better with Mankins back. 6. Fells and Hooman have been good additions. We badly needed a backup TE last year; we also needed a blocking TE. These guys have done both well, in addition to filling the role of fullback. That being said, Gronkowski is the key, and plays almost all the reps, even while injured. 7. The wide receiver situation is still a mess for 2013. We have Lloyd, Slater and Salas as signed players. 8. We like to make believe that offense is set for 2013. That is certainly true if we re-sign or replace our our current players with players of equal or greater value: Welker, Edelman, Branch, Vollmer, Thomas, Woodhead. 9. The offense seems to lack a killer instinct. Perhaps they are simply coasting into the playoffs. Playing the jets even was a wake up call; they're awful. Unfortunately, it is hard to turn on enthusiasm.
