    Are the Pats still Team to Beat?

    After Digesting this Trade a bit, sounds like BB hit this one out of the Park. We all love what Sey meant to this Team. We definitely took a hit as the Team to beat this Year. No Team loses an All-Pro Player and gets better on Defense, in the short run. Wilfork and Mankins and most of all Brady need to be locked up. We get a first round pick in 2011 with a likely Rookie payscale, which makes this trade even better. Sey wasn't the same player anymore. So are the Pats Still the Team To Beat. BET ON IT. SUPER BOWL

    I think they are still A team to beat but not THE team to beat. The Steelers are going to be right there with them I think. I am nervous about Pittsburgh actually. Top notch Defense and a pretty good and always Clutch Offense against our Top Notch Offense and our looks great on paper, but still unproven Defense.

         Even with Seymour, the Pats were not the "team to beat". There is no one dominant team in the NFL. The closest thing to a team to beat are the Steelers, Giants, Eagles, Chargers, and Patriots...in that order. The soft Pats' defense and the unknown health issues of Tom Brady make this so.

    I still think the defense is the big question mark on this team.  I don't mean to say that it will stink but with so many new and young/inexperienced players, there may be some growing pains this year.  It could improve as the season progresses.   Hopefully the offense will carry the team until the D gets up to speed.  That being said,  I think the Squeelers are the team to beat.  They should still have a great defense this year and they are the defending champs.

    I agree with the 5 teams you put up there, but the order not so much. Tom's knee puts them number 5? Can I say the same about Merriman's knee? Same injury and we all saw last year how their Defense made out without him. Eagles lost Jim Johnson and have had a few injuries up front and to a very important starting MLB. Giants have lost offensive firepower and are relying on unproven rookies at WR.

    So yea I'd put it Steelers, Patriots, Giants, Eagles Chargers. I think Green Bay is going to surprise a few people this year as well.

    Also, any given Sunday....

    How is Seymour not the same player as he leads our team in sacks?

              The healthiest team between the Patriots and Steelers would have to be decided favorites at this time.Injuries are always the greatest threat to success that cannot be controlled by the front offices and coaches in the league....P.S.-It was highly unlikely N.E. was going to resign Seymour and getting a first in 2011 was a brilliant stroke in that they already have 3 second round picks in 2010.Fair value and at the right time for this team to continue their riegn as a legitimate S.B. contender.

    Re: Are the Pats still Team to Beat?

    I think the whole team to beat thing we depend on how our offense looks.  If the Patriots can do close to what they did in 2007 and pile on points on teams 28-42 points a game, then we're the team to beat, because even with a team like the Steelers, it puts tremendous pressure on their offense, which usually leads to turnovers.  But if Moss loses a step, (he's getting older so there's a chance this season) and Brady isn't the same QB coming back from injuries, then we're not the team to beat.   

    I actually think the offense might be just as good as 2007 because we have better backs on the roster with Fred Taylor and a healthy Maroney.   At the end of the day, the team with homefield advantage is the team to beat.

    I think the steelers will have an off year. Thier offense doesn't put up the points they need, but i know their defense can pick some up once in a while.

    How did the Giants beat out the Eagles on your list? I think you mean Steelers, Eagles, Vikings, Patriots, and Giants. 

    The Pats were second on the list last night. That's how huge of a leap we took from losing Seymour.

    Re: Are the Pats still Team to Beat?

    I basically comes down to 2 things.

    1) Will Brady last the season
    2) Will the D improve from last year

    If either doesn't happen then no. The first one is obvious but when you get the playoffs you have to be able to get stops or your going home.
