    how many impact players do the patriots have on the team?

    I count four.three on offense,and one on defense.Brady,moss,and welker,and merriweather.thats it.this is what the team needs.how they get them remains to be seen.free agency.the draft,or players on the team stepping up there game.until this happens the pats will have a good team that will compete,but not a great team that can finish.

    You gotta throw Merriweather in there too. Had five picks last year I believe. Also missed a lot of tackles for big gains. Either way his play definitely impacts the outcome of each game. Positive or negative. You did not specify what impact you were looking for. We do have a lot of could be's, in Edelman, Mayo, Butler, Tate, Wright, Pryor and Chung. Also I would like to throw Vollmer's name in the mix. Obviously not putting up flashy numbers and stats or whatever, but if he continues to progress the way everybody seems to think he can he will allow the Welkers, Tates, and Edelmans to be the impact players we need.

    thats what im saying.players that need to step up there game,or get better,but yes i did forget about merriweather.i will edit that.i dont count tackles unless they are for no gain,or for a loss.tackles are technical.we can say if a player dosent tackle there would be td,s scored.but we could sayhow many yards were gained before the tackles.

    Not to mention our defensive MVP; Mr. fork. Not exactly a glamor position but we'd be lucky to win 5 games next year without him.

    By all accounts the defense was old and slow. The rebuilding process has started. In 2007, 3 or 4 of the offensive linemen were pro-bowlers. Now their time has passed.

    The Pats are rebuilding. It needs more than a quick fix. Hopefully, more impact players will develop.

    Funny Pats may not have a lot of impact players but other teams do and have not done as well over the past 10 years.

    So is it about having 4 or 5 impact players who may or may not make an impact or is it more about having all the right players in the right positions as well as back ups who can do the job consistently.
    BTW an impact player who is not cositently doing his job consistently is useless.

    I agree 100% with the 4 you chose. Not enough playmakers on D, by any stretch of the imagination - Bruschi, McGinnis, Seymour, Vrabel and Harrison = we were stacked at one point; I'm starting to think it was the players not the system.
