that posting a 12-4 regular season winning record, or better, is everything, if a team is not properly structured to win playoff games in January and February. Someone stated that since Romeo left, the Pats D has been average, at best, and I think I have to agree with that. Has BB been able to rebuild the coaching and coordinators' positions sufficiently after all the defections? Is the quarterback coach our new offensive coordinator? How much faith has Pees actually earned from serious Pats fans? If the Pats are winning games 41-24 all season, are they ready to play the Steelers in a late playoff game? I dunno these anwers yet...and maybe BB doesn't know yet either...
