In response to crazy-world-of-troybrown's comment:
This team has to be one of the slowest teams in the NFL in the Wideout position. Very good Tackling and Defensive teams just pack it in on us. There is not one guy on this team that scares a CB, so much that he requires Safety help, on a consistent basis. So lets keep Drafting TE's early.
You need a Homerun hitter in the NFL. Just to spread the field. Then the underneath stuff works better.
I beg to differ. Who did the Patriots have playing WR for them in their championship years that was a "homerun hitter"? Deion Branch? Troy Brown?? David Givens??? If the Pats want to win another title, they must vastly improve their OL and DL.
Their OC and RG last year were terrible...and their RT fair at best. On defene. the Pats still can't rush the pasher...and need to replace the aging Vince Wilfolk with a tud DT, who can shut down the run, as well as collapse the pass pocket.
The Pats didn't lose to Denver because of their receivers or QB. They lost because they couldn't run the ball, because they couldn't budge that lard butt NT, Terrence Knighton. They also lost because they couldn't apply any pressure to the Picasso of Choke Artists...who had all day to throw,
