Which of these tremendous feats by the Pats is Most likely to repeat itself from 2010?
None, BJGE the most likely but i think the young guys take reps and yards off his total.
The most likely tough repeat is Brady as MVP, picking them to win the division again is too easy. Taking Mallett is going to light a big fire under an already motivated Brady, given the work on the offense the last 2 drafts I can see Brady having an even better year in 2001, tough as that is to imagine. i don't see 325 without and int again but taking them to another Championship and being the best player in football again is a real possibility.
not a pats fan, but i voted 14-2
14-2 because the Pats sexuality excite me. No other reason.
I chose E. None will repeat. Some will be better, some worse.
I went with the Firm gaining another 1000 because neither of our rookie RBs is likely to be up to speed enough to rob him of his 15 or so carries a game it'll probably take for him to hit that #. And the cat doesnt fumble. Gonna be tough to steal his touches.
I went with the turnover rating. I could see that happening again with the improvements in our secondary.
I would settle for leading the league in sacks.
Agreed. Bodden and Dowling should really help and McCourty didn't become a balhawk till the second half of the season, so he'll create more turnovers. The pass rush should also improve with the return of Warren, the aquisition of Stroud and the the maturation of Cunningham. I think the focus on power running game will help.
It's hard to fathom why (at current count) 5 people think the BJGE is going to get 1,000 yards rushing when the Patriots just picked up 2 young running backs in the draft - and running back is the position with the easiest transition to the NFL. Is everyone else going down with an injury? Why would we expect any running back to even hit 800 yards?
They'll make it to the AFC Championship game, and lose.
None of those, but they will have the best scoring offense and have the fewest turnovers in the league. The takeaway numbers will fall due to an increase in sacks
None of those will repeat.
Our season will go something like this:
13-3 #1 seed.
Brady MVP,offensive player of the year
BB Coach of the year
Vereen offensive rookie of the year
Dowling defensive rookie of the year
Mayo defensive player of the year
Warren Comeback player of the year
Pro Bowl/All-Pro's Cunningham,McCourty,Wilfork,Meriweather,Brady,Welker,Mankins,Solder,Cannon,Vollmer,Warren,Spikes,Chung,Dowling,Gronkowski,Vereen.
Season culminates with an all time great performance from Brady in the SB vs the Packers. 300+ yards 4 TD's. SB MVP.
The 2011 New England Patriots - World Champions.
I went with BJGE getting his 1,000+
I am glad that you didn't put "1 and done" in the playoffs as an option, though that would have been the correct (unfortunately) answer last year. Hopefully BJGE gets on the field to prove me right!
I doubt if any of those are going to happen. I do not see BJGE rushing for a 1000 yards. Technically Brady's 325 passes without an INT is still going on.
Team speed is way up. Defensive turnovers are almost always highly correlated with team speed. While exceeding the turnover differential is unlikely, the team will be stronger. Exceeding 14-2 or any of the others are improbable, however.

But the results dont show.
Records are nice but all i care about is a superbowl
Setting the kool aid down for a moment and taking the homer glasses off, I'd have to go with "none of the above". Although those stats we'll all be cheering for and hoping to see, realistically they all have a less than 50% chance of happening.
If you remove none of the above as a response, then the question is a difficult one to answer. 325 straight passes without an incompletion is the easiest choice to eliminate, but it's tough to say which of the other three is most likely or least likely to happen.
I went with 14-2 partly because team success means more to me than anything else and partly because it is the one that I think is most likely to happen.
Davis drafts Offensive speed, not Defensive speed, where the turnovers come from...
Davis drafts defensive speed as well. Just ask DeMarcus Van Dyke.
I'm concerned there won't be 16 games this season, let alone winning 14 of them.
History tells us that the answer is "none of the above".
prediction as of today....
BJBE - 700 rushing yards
Tom Brady - 8 INTs
Not unless Brady's first pass in 2011 is picked off
I'd love to see a Pats-Packers Superbowl. I don't subscribe to the I want the easiest game possible for the win. I enjoy the challenge of watching the best go against the best.
