We are 3-2. We split our division games. We are 2-1 against solid non-division opponents. Yes, the jets and denver are better teams than I expected them to be. ======================================================= We should be fine coming out of the bye. I expect 5-2 now, but expected 4-3 before the season started. A 7-2 finish is reasonable. ======================================================= OFFENSE Before the season, we had absolutely no reason to believe that Brady would be anywhere near 100% before the bye. Manning was 3-4 coming back last year and then went undefeated. The open question is when Brady will be back to more normal performances for him. The rest of the offense is fine. There will be the normal changes and issues, but it is basically fine. Edelman is fine as a #3 receiver. Watson is having a fine year. The offensive line has been better than anyone had any right to expect. DEFENSE We are already a very good defense. This is an incredible achievement for the front office, for the coaching staff and especially for Pees. This group has performed so well without so many of their former stars, and with Mayo out. The transformation of the secondary is al but complete (we need more development of the youngsters). The linebackers have been performing well. McGowan and Banta-Cain have been incredible additions. Green is the same lunchpail player he has always been, and Wright has stepped up big time. It is also great to see the kids develop, especially Guyton and Pryor.
