First off let me say after the Colts game in early Nov. I freaked out and said our Reign was over. Soon after the Buffalo game came their winning streak which made me change my mind that maybe they could pull out their third straight title. Then came the Denver game, First, I would like to say the D played awesome! They stuffed the run, and Jake Plummer didn't do **** on the Pats until the turnovers started happening. Bottom Line: If they wouldn't have turned it over, Pats WIN, End of story! AFC Championship game in Foxboro. Damn! Denver offense would have been lucky to score 10 points with their offensive effort. Now that I have gotten that off my chest, this is what the Pats need to do in and will do to get back into the playoffs next year: 1.) Problem: O-LINE - Neal had a bad year, the rest of the line couldn't run block worth crap for Dillon and constantly had QB pressures on Brady. RT is hideous! one week it's Gorin, then Ashworth, then Kaczur. Then again, at least we didn't have Cowboys' RT Pettiti. Aside from Injuries, the team needs to cut out the musical chairs. Remedy: Anthony Clement, just kidding! No really, unfortunately there aren't any attractive free agents to me. They have to either play the waiting game for a team to release someone or get one from the draft again. 2.) Problem: Givens is a Free Agent Remedy: Resign him, enough said! Bring in Moulds for a #3. If he really wants to win he'll sign with the Pats. If they can land him, our receivers and TE's will be sick! 3.) Julian Peterson would be a nice pickup but should come with a hefty price tag. I've been hearing from you guys that BB likes him. And what does BB usually do when he likes a player, he gets him. see Colvin '03. 4.) Replacement for Dillon. I'm not saying give him the boot, however, I think that if LenDale White is available, we have to grab him. He is a Dillon clone. Think of the running game we could have next season if our O-Line is Healthy and upgraded plus Dillon + White + Faulk and even Pass = Ridiculous Ground Game! 5.) CB - I really like Hobbs' intensity and hard work that helped our defense get some excitement and some much needed swagger. We need more guys like him. The return of Bruschi and Seymour helped also might I add. Perhaps, bring in Azumah, which seems to be the fan favorite here for some depth and he is also a great special teamer. Just more depth. And I mean more DEPTH! 6.) DL - anybody that says we need to draft another lineman has officially gone nuts. How many D-linemen do we need? Enough with the D-line, Pats got studs. Need to focus on other positions. Used 3 first round picks on them, and also a second round pick on Hill, which seems to be a waste. So tell me again why we need another one? 7.) FB - A dying breed in the NFL. I think they are invaluable to the ground game. I would love to have Lorenzo Neal, or Tony Richardson, with that said I would like the Pats to get FRED BEASLEY! Didn't play a lot with the Niners this season because their offense didn't call for a run blocking FB. However he can easily receive the ball too. Word is that Beasley was frustrated with Bishop Harris the Running Backs coach because he wasn't involved enough. Then Beasley suffered a minor injury, and Niners sign random dude and Beasley never sees the field even when he was healthy. Word is the Beasley will not return. This will help any O-Line go from average to above average in a heart beat. I really love this guy, in a heterosexual way! Can do it all! I'm sure he won't ask for much. Haven't had a dominate FB since Sam Gash left. 8.) Safety - Rodney will be fine (I hope). I would really like to see Wilson go back to corner but he's fine at Safety. The team will bring in a couple free agents just for insurance purposes. 9.) QB - I know you guys are going to hate me for this, but I think it's time to cut our ties with Tom Brady. I know, I know, three out of four Super bowls, yada yada yada, he's turning 29 next year and he didn't play very well against Denver. I'M JUST KIDDING! You were probably just thinking (did he really just write that?) I like kidding with people. Tom Brady is already a legend in my book! 10.) Special Teams: They were ok. Got better as the season went on. Maybe get some guys in free agency. Maybe a coaching change will help. But I don't see it as a glaring problem. Well, thank you for reading my essay on the Pats, please give me your opinion. I would gladly appreciate it! Oh yeah, one more thing, I guarantee, that the Pats will get back to at least the AFC Championship game this upcoming season! This whole season has been a fluke for the NFL! I'm going to eat a Burrito and some spanish rice now...Later fellow fans.
