First, letâ€™s keep perspective. The team went 10-6 with numerous new players and a QB returning from major injury. In most cities not spoiled rotten by unbridled success, this would be a successful season. The secondary will develop into a top unit but the unit is in need of some leadership. Changes upcoming: ~ The Star Wide Receiver Era is Over: While it has been fun to watch, and Moss has overall played well here, the 2007-2009 Patriots have hit the end of the rope with a passing game involving primarily 1-2 players. The 2001-2004 teamâ€™s hallmark was ball control, with short passing to a variety of receivers, and the hard running of Smith (2001 & 2003) culminating with the bruising 1600 yard season Dillon unloaded upon the NFL in 2004. Opposing teams had to play catch up against a seasoned and violent defense. In 2007, we became the target. If a team like the Giants expends hellacious effort in one game, any good offense can be derailed. Solution: Welker (when he returns) Edeman and who? will form the basis of passing game in 2010. Key will be to add a tight end with good hands (that clanging sound from my TV was the ball bouncing off Ben Watsonâ€™s metallic hands). ~ Adios Adalius and Burgess; Hello Basic Training. Draft and develop old timey football linebackers (or as BB called guys like Troy Brown â€śfootball playing dudesâ€ť. A simple requirement: players must tackle. The Ravens game was an embarrassment of missed tackles by Mayo, Guyton and Meriwether. ~ Commit to the Run: In the biggest game of the year, our lead back was absolutely crushed trying to block Ray Lewis. And BBâ€™s lack of faith in his ball security (how many turnovers can one team handle) had him on the bench for key stretches . We need a solid young back who can handle 60-70% of the load to develop rhythm with the OL . Mankins, Vollmer and the much maligned Light were solid, but the right side needs to be rebuilt. In short, I want to a defense to be the face of the team. I see BB embracing his dark side for defensive demolition and getting the PAtriots right back in the hunt in 2010.
