    If you could ask 5 questions concerning the Patriots 2009/10 season going into what should be an eventful offseason period,what would your top 5 questions be?

    #1 should be of most importance to you to get an answer (I think we will all agree what is the most important question) while #5 is the least but still an important one

    Heres mine ....

    1 - What will become of Brady and will he be back in time or later or out longer than expected? - (Probably #1 on every Pats fans list)

    2- Will Rodney return? and if so what type of player will he be following another devastating injury? - Will he be used as much as in the past or will he split more time with Meriweather?

    3 - Will Maroney stay on the team and show us he can be a useful RB in this system and avoid his annual injuries or will he receive his official 'NFL bust' award

    4 - Will BB hire an OC within the team? or will he head outside and look elsewhere or will he simply take over both OC and HC

    5 - Does Bruschi retire this year? or does he share spot duty with Guyton,a FA ILB pickup or a rookie out of this year's draft?


    Thats my top 5 .... Yours?

    Re: Your 5 top Patriots questions heading into the offseason ...

    1) Brady: Back for Season Opener, Yes or No? If not, when? Back at 100% by Week Eight, Yes or No?
    2) Cassel (see Brady): more valuable to Pats "Franchised on Roster" or "Franchised with Sign and Trade?"
    3) QB: given 1) and 2), what is the solution for the next three to seven years?
    4) Defensive Secondary: how to improve?
    5) Defensive Pass Rush: how to improve?

    1.) Brady
    2.) How much did Mankins, Wilfork, Watson, Hobbs, Kaczur, Gostkowski, LeKevin Smith, O'Callaghan, David Thomas, and Billy Yates earn in escalators?? The more they earned, the less likely that the Pats will be able to "afford" to tag Cassel.
    3.) How many Patriots UFAs are going to resign with the Pats before free agency begins??
    4.) At what level are the 3 RFAs (Woods, Alexander, Britt) tendered at??
    5.) How many Patriots UFAs will leave to join former Patriot coaches/front office personnel??

    1. Tom Brady - If healthy, Super Bowl contenders.

    2. Draft - Doesn't appear that we are going to be able to sign
    any big-name UFA's. Getting harder and harder with cap continuing
    to rise. Teams have enough money to keep their players now.
    Defense,defense,defense and an OL.

    3. Trades - Not just what we get for Cassel. But, will we use any of those extra
    picks to trade for veteran help. A la 07.

    4. Continued development of younger defenders; Meriweather, Wheatley,
    S.Crable, G.Guyton and P.Woods. Not even worried about Mayo.

    5. Upheavel on coaching staff. Think back to 05. We struggled quite a bit to
    get the right mix. If not mistaken, I believe BB had to spend more time with
    DEF. helping Mangini. Offense struggled. At least we didn't lose both coordinators
    this time.

    1- If Brady isn't ready and Cassel is gone, do the Pats look at O'Connell or bring in a cheap veteran?

    2- What will the Pats see as the biggest need for defense come draft time? If they had have listened to fans last year they would have drafted a CB and not Mayo.

    3- Will they keep Maroney around or feel content with Morris/Jordan/Faulk or bring someone else in?

    4- What is BB going to draw up to give the suddenly competitive AFC East a punch in the mouth?

    5- Will Randy Moss's age start showing? His taper off in productivity had more to do with the development of Cassel then losing a step.
