Up until last night, we as fans were hopeful that the Pats would be able to recover from the loss of Branch and Givens. We knew BB would coach the team well, and Brady would be great, and the defense strong and the running game pretty darn good, and that we'd be in most games with a good chance to win most. But as far as making a superbowl run and being able to knock off the crem-de-la-crem of the league, well, we remained concerned with the timing and comfort level between Brady and his many new receivers. We had optimism, but it would need to play out. Well, last night, or fears that it wouldn't happen were put to rest. It HAS played out. We can all rest assured now that the Pats passing game will be just fine and they will be able to do whatever it is they need to do at any point in any game. Yes my friends, we CAN make another superbowl run, and yes my friends, we can beat any team in the NFL. Doesn't mean we will every time, or that a superbowl victory is locked up, but it means we CAN do it. The rest of this season just became extremely more interesting and full of potential. And the rest of the NFL just became much, much more concerned with the dynasty known as the New England Patriots! 4 in 6 years anyone?
