This team will be a great team folks. Brady WILL be Brady. He's soon to find out that his knee is better than ever, and he need not think about it. I had the same surgery. What WR in the NFL went over the 100 reception mark for the last two years? Wes Welker. Guess what? Wes Welker will be playing for the Patriots this year. Am I the only one excited about Welker and Welker Lite on the field at the same time. What LB lead the Patriots in tackles last year, and was the NFL's Defensive rookie of the year? Jerod Mayo. Guess what? Jerod Mayo will be playing for the Patriots this year. We heard alot about the solid Atlanta offense leading into the game, and rightfully so. Did anybody notice that the Patriots, minus Mayo, Wilfolk, Butler, and Willhite, held them to 10 points? For those of us concerned about the defense, the early signs has been better than good, and will only get better. For those that wondered if Fred Taylor still had it, are you not excited about what he's been bringing to the table? The New England Patriots are going to be a dominant team as the year goes on. Alot of new parts can equal early growing pains, as can some of the injuries, but the new parts look collectively to be very good indeed. See me at the bye, and when the Pats are 5 and 2, or 6 and 1, we'll chat about it.
