    Re: how would you all compare this patriots team to last years

    The biggest improvement has been in their ability to stop the run.  Forget the stats.  In the last 2 playoff losses they could not get Baltimore to pass the ball, even with a 2nd year starter in Flacco.  This is because they simply could not stop the run.  It started with the first play from scrimmage and never let up.

    Deja vu all over again with the Jets last year.  You've got a young QB.  Make him throw the football.  They couldn't.

    Re: how would you all compare this patriots team to last years


    The idea is to be better at the end of the season than at
    the beginning.

    The Pats are trending up, a team like Detroit seems to be going
    the wrong way and its holes are being exposed.

    I think our D has athletism and speed and more depth
    I think our pts allowed 2nd half season vs 1st half will be
     lower like last year - if not better
    We have a group of young and new players who are working hard
    to learn BB's complex system

    I think our Oline is really better - no longer a draft need
         We are deep at Tackle and Guard
         I think our Oline likes run blocking and does it well
    I think we will see more of the running
         The Law Firm looks faster to me this year?
         I love Ridley - and we havn't see as much of Faulk
         Woodhead or Vareen - I like this group alot

    I don't think that TB will necessarily break Marino's record
          I would love to see Price in there - and if it is at the expense
          of our other WR's I will not get down on them
          The TE duo is off the charts
          If Brady has his normal QB rating we are in great shape

    ( it sort of Pisses me off about on all this Rogers talk by the
    talking heads - do they forget last year? yes)

    We have a team that can come from behind
         and except for an O break down we should never lose
          when we get the lead ( Buffalo)

    But until we win a Playoff game we will have our doubts

    We should have won the SB and the Jets game- even if our
              O diudn't play its best
          Baltimore we were just flat 


          If TB hadn't thrown the worst screen pass of his life we would
           have marched down the field and would have been the extension
          of the 47-3 December game- 
          
    But what if's don't count

    It is impossible to have Pro Bowlers at every position
                We draft low. 
    I am happy with our talent level and their potential
          BB manages our Salary cap well

    The Pats are one of the 8-9 teams that can win it all.
    I guess if we could guarantee a team that wins evey week
    I would be bored.
    This is a fun group to like and root for.
    And they will be good this year and in the future.

    better. the defense is more complicated and takes time for everyone to get it and gel as a unit. they are getting better and will be at their best by seasons end.

    the offense is more talented, the tight ends in their 2nd year and still improving along with the running game, ridley.. they are turning it over more though and need to keep balanced, not obsess with the shotgun spread like last years playoff loss to the jets. when they establish a running game they are near impossible to stop. 

    special teams needs to improve, kickoff coverage in particular.

    Pitt has some good WRs and Ben is a good QB. If NE can put together a good defensive performance for the 3rd week, I will feel comfortable saying they are improved over last years team.
