I'm reading so many stupid posts on other sites about how the Patriots will be lucky to win 10 games, that their offense will be terrible, that we're going to have to rely on the run, etc, etc. I don't get it. An offense is more than the Gronk, Hernandez, Welker, Lloyd and Woodhead and Gronk will be back at some point. I love Woodhead but I think our offense, as whole, will benefit from Leon Washington moreso when you factor in the anticipated impact on offensive starting position due to Leon's superior KR abilities. There's really no overstating how important I believe those extra yards on kick returns will be. Welker for Amendola is probably a downgrade - but I don't think it will be a major one. Lloyd was a decent possession receiver and I think between Jones, Dobson and Jenkins one of those players will be able to replace his production. So the biggest loss is Aaron Hernandez. Nothing can be said or done about that except moving on. The team has played plenty of games without him the past few seasons so it is what it is. Will we have a #1 passing offense? I dunno, it's hard to make a case that we will. But we still have Brady. We still have a great OL and we still have a damn fine stable of running backs. And we have some interesting prospects in Jones, Boyce, Dobson and some of the PS guys. The point is - the doom and gloom about the #1 offense becoming awful is extremely premature.
