In response to wozzy's comment:
I agree with the sarcastic inference by the original poster, all of you moaning, whining nancies who can't stand even the slightest bit of challenge, as if winning a championship was going to be easy, go root for the Ravens, Steelers and 49ers.
You're an embarrassment to Patriot's fans. I cringe to think at the joy a Jests, Giants or any fan of another team gets reading your lilly livered, entitled garbage. They wish they could enjoy the success that Bill Belichick has brought to New England, it certainly wasn't here prior to him, or maybe you meatballs can't remember back that far?
A season is a journey, you don't arrive at your destination the moment it starts, sorry but that kind of instant satisfaction doesn't exist in a 16 game season. The Broncos don't win any rings for scoring 7 touchdowns in week one.
You had better enjoy this time while it lasts instead of nitpicking every little decision as if you could do better, nobody does it better than the guy we have now, not since Chuck Noll, Bill Walsh or Lombardi himself, and that's some rarified air.
Go root for somebody else, try the Jaguars, I hear their GM is the best.
Wozzy, Wozzy, Wozzy! My boxing fan buddy. While I certainly see your point, we must face facts here as the warning signs are showing up. After weeks worth of preseason games, reading that the rookies are going to be very good, that Amendola wasn't injury prone due to him having two freakish injuries, I must say this is going to be a very challenging season. Not only for the team but for the fans. The rookies aren't great, Amendola out hurt again and not with a freakish injury. When our best WR is Julian Edelman... we have a problem.
Yes, the season is a journey but it is only a 16 games long journey, and if we are lucky we could get a couple of playoff games and a SB out of it too. But that isn't very long to turn a team like this into a serious threat. If the season was double the length then maybe this season is a journey saying would be relevant.
Maybe this team will get the work it needs during this season and be great next season and the season after. We shall see. But couldn't they have done this without trying to overhaul everything all in this season. We knew the Gronk and Hernandez situation in time to make some key changes. What are the they thinking building an offense around rookie wr's, some undrafted and two injury prone vet WR's? Not sure if BB is letting Josh McD call a bunch o these offensive shots or what is going on but certainly with BB, Brady and Kraft we should be expecting and deserve better.
I love the enthusiasm, I love the loyalty, I love the optimism but we can't keep the blinders on all season. We have some problems. We are at a point that all of this should have been worked out in preseason. We should be at the point where we are doing a little tinkering, fine tuning a well oiled machine not just starting to build the beast. Is it really so bad, so crazy to question the vision here?
