A lot of prognosticators are putting the Pats among early Super Bowl favorites for one reason only: the return of Tom Brady. My question is, where do the Pats go if the unthinkable happens again and Tom misses significant time in '09? Is this team constructed solidly enough to succeed without him and make it to the playoffs, or does it depend too much on Tom to carry the load? What can be done/should be done via insurance for this offense? Is the offensive line solid enough? Do we need a veteran backup QB in place? To me, it looks like we enter 2009 in the same position as 2008, "hoping" the defense improves, the offensive line more or less the same as in 2007, and with unproven QB depth. All I can say, is -- stay healthy Tom. And, in BB we trust.
