CBS analyst Boomer Esiason believes Tom Brady and the Patriots are in for a big season.
“I don’t know if they’re good enough to unseat Houston or Denver if everybody stays healthy,” said Esiason, “but I think we’re going to see his greatness come through again this year. He will make these young players much better.”
Though there seems to be a wider range of predictions regarding the Patriots than in recent years past, members of CBS’s broadcast team offered more optimism than skepticism.
“They’re always coming up with wrinkles, they’re staying ahead of the curve, and I still think when all is said and done, we’ll be talking about them as a team to beat in January,” said Bill Cowher.
