In response to SportsGenius1's comment:
The teams defense will be a lot better than last years version. Revis and Browner along with an already improved defensive secondary. Ryan, Dennard and Harmon only needed a shut down corner last year to be effective imagine what these kids will be learning from Revis and Browner. This could be a lights out defense provided they stay healthy. Now if Mayo , Wilfork and Kelly return to form there is no offense in the NFL that can run them over!
Healthy last year, they were leading the way in the AFC. Revis replaces Talib, they get a bonus with Browner and maybe with smaller additions like Anderson and Kevin Williams to pitch in as well.
People like to mock the non-star players on this D simply because they don't trot around town with a SB ring on their finger, which shows the pathetic level of maturity of those supposed adults here.
But, players like Nink, Arrington, Mcourty, Dennard, etc, basically the ones who are good, but have been asked too much of them, now can thrive with some help.
Mayo and CHandler as Pro Bowl caliber in-house players, Hightower into the Spikes role more so where he can use his skill set better and what appears to be an emerging Collins, should make for a versatile, deep and very talented group.
If you look at Denver's D, on paper, it's as talented, but they also have zero depth behind their starters.
If the Pats can get homefield vs Denver this time, I think it's the Pats COnf Title to lose.
