Brady and Manning cancel each other out so each position outside of the QB matters. There is only two distinct advantages NE has over Denver; Bill and Gronk. One of them most likely won't be there come playoff time. I would take Miller/Ware over Jones/Ninko. Knighton over any replacement we bring in for Wilfork. Talib is not Revis but at his best he can shut down any wide out on this team. Ward can set a tone unlike DMC who lacks playmaking ability. Mayo does eclipse any of their MLB's and Colins has showed potential. Sanders makes up for losing Decker but Morano will be missed. Their playmaking tight end Thomas has a better chance of lasting at seasons end but Gronk is far greater in every category. The Patriots do not have a number one wide out like Demaryius who puts presure on defenses. Pats do win the Battle of Olines as currently constructed tho. It's sad that each move made this Free agency seems status quo considering we needed to pass up these Broncos not pull even while falling off our Horses.
