    Season's over...

    What happens to Brady & co now?

    Will Brady be throwing to Jackson and Caldwell in 2 weeks time, every couple of days, practicing, getting timing down, etc?

    Or do they go their separate ways on vacation until the camps?

    What are the odds that Jackson and Brady will get a ton of practice over the next few months? Or do they go and work on their tans?

    The coaches will give them all their "report card" which will tell each what they need to be better at for next season. Then they'll go their separate ways for a month or two.

    Vrabel said in a lockerroom interview that the character of the team is so strong that they'll probably be back next week working out. The interview is avaliable on NESN via boston.com.

    Until June minicamps, players will be probably splitting their time between their homes and the stadium. A vacation here and there, but they'll have the offseason workout program to follow.

    Assuming a good-to-very good draft, and a decent free-agent/trade acquisition or two, the Pats should be a more solid team next year in all phases. The young guys have gained valuable experience, the older guys some valuable rest, and they should be good and pissed after the way their season ended.

    A few of them I'm sure will hang out in Miami for the SB festivities. At least Brady did last year, but then again he was also doing the SB coin flip and there for the MVP introductions. Maybe this year he'll just want to immediately go on a long vacation.

    That is what is so amazing. In the past two years NE has had 13 rookies make the roster and have set themselves up for another bundle of picks this year. They are solid on both lines and at the QB position. Depending on who stays, the secondary could be a strength and so could the TEs. They have their WRs coming back for a full offseason with the team.

    If NE was an up and comer like Carolina people would be pimping them to be the next dynasty.

    Hopefully Brady works out with the WRs and TEs. And that Ben and Reche work hard on the Jugs machine.:rocker:

    A piece of unsolicited advice to Pats players. They really have to work "overtime" in the offseason, to improve their game and deal with any of their weaknesses. The Pats training camp will be ultra competitive this year. In addition to the current roster players, we have at least 10 draft picks, many people on IR and who will be raring to go back to playing, practice squad players, shadow roster players, NFLE players, UDFAs, supplemental draft players, marquee FAs, players acquired through trade, players cut by other teams, wrestlers and basketball players wanting to play football, etc. Go Pats:rocker:

    Perhaps being beaten by the Colts in the way they were (face it they blew it, it was theirs to take) is just the motivation the Pats need to get back to the Super Bowl.

    Anyone else see this as kind of the 1994 season when the 49ers beat the Cowboys finally after being beaten rather easily the previous two seasons. The next season the Boys made it back. Here's hoping 2007 is much like 1995 for Dallas, with the seasons following 07 being UNLIKE that of Dallas, haha.

    I hope Maroney & Jackson stay busy. These guys oughta be stars of the offense over the next few years. And especially for Jackson, this offseason could be quite important & a chance to improve physically and mentally.

    No Jersey Selected

    Players need to take advantage of there time off to heal and recharge there brains, maybe some light conditioning for a couple of months, then focus on a more serious weight trainng, cardio program to get them ready for the OTAs.
