Really not sure why everyone is starting to panic at 5-2. Remember, when we won Championships our records were 11-5, 14-2 and again 14-2. We still have Tom Brady, perhaps the greatest Quarterback of all-time who still plays at an elite level and Bill Belichick who is one of the greatest coaches of all-time who still coaches at a very high level. Those two aren't going anywhere anytime soon and will continue to make their mark on sports history for years to come. Now lets look at what we have now and what we had in the past and compare talent levels just to prove that my point that we are just fine. Tom Brady - Still here and still an elite player, even better than 01, 03 and 04 BenJarvus Green Ellis "Law-Firm" at his best > Antoine Smith and JR Redman but < Corey Dillon still Kevin Faulk - Still here and still a good football player Wes Welker > Troy Brown Deion Branch - Still here, and still a very good receiver Chad Ochocinco (focused, motivated, playbook learned and at his absolute best) > David Givens, Troy Brown or David Patten Danny Woodhead healthy and back to form > Kevin Faulk Rob Gronkowski by far > Christian Fauria or Jermaine Wiggins Aaron Hernandez by far > Ben Watson or Daniel Graham Logan Mankins > Any lineman we've had in years Matt Light - Still here and still good Sebastian Vollmer by far > Tom Ashworth Dan Connolly < Damien Woody Brian Waters > over anybody else we've had in the recent past Albert Haynesworth (focused, healthy, aggresive and at his absolute all-pro very best, defensive end or tackle) > Richard Seymour .. love Seymour but it's true when this guy's switch is turned on.. Deadly Vince Wilfork "Wilfork's island" > Ted Washington Andre Carter > Jarvis Green Shaun Ellis (when playing like himself and at his very best) > Ty Warren Jerod Mayo (top 5 reaching is peak prime) = or even > Tedy Bruschi Brandon Spikes (when healthy, focused, and making explosive plays) > Ted Johnson .. much better athlete then Ted Rob Ninkovich < Mike Vrabel, Rosevelt Colvin ????????? no replacement Willie McGinest ????????? no replacement Devin McCourty (when playing focused, at his very best and like we know he can from what he showed us) = young Ty Law and > risky Asante Samuel Kyle Arrington (really has let his game loose, naturally gifted rising star) Patrick Chung (what he can be at his full potential, and at his absolute very best) = or even > Rodney Harrison IMO So as you can see, we don't have a shortage in talent in fact we have even more talent than previous years, we just have to put it all together. It takes a little while for a team to develop good chemistry especially with alot of injuries and roster moves.. But I think sooner than later, we'll get it together and gel the way we should... To conclude, don't worry we will be fine because we have all the tools neccesary to have a successful post season run.
