Simply because who can improve enough to get over the hump that is the New England Patriots in the AFC? If we sort out the glaring needs this team has that the whole world can see that we need then no question we'll be there. Who else can really stop us from getting there again? Jets - Sancheese and Rex at the helm? Nuff said. Ravens - getting older by the year and couldn't get past us when they were primed and Tom played his worst game. Steelers - With a healthy Ben? maybe but again that D took a few steps back from the one that got to SB 45 and to get outplayed by Tebow is just mind boggling so i just can't see how that works. Texans - might be the No.1 seed next year, stellar run game and when their QB is healthy with those receivers and that top class defense they'll be tough to beat. Again all the pats have to do is address the needs by drafting properly this time round. Also make sure the cheque book is out in full effect this FA because there are some gems for the Pats that can all but book us a place in NO. Whatever happened tonight we'll still be the cream of the crop in the AFC with this QB and this coach, just need a little bit of extra help because instead of asking a few guys on this team to be Batman for 60 minutes there are ALOT of Robin's we can get to push us over the line.
