    It's really not Brady who's the issue with the Pats, it's really the defense and the lack of a running game. Belichick's good at disguising weaknesses on his team and exposing those of his opponents, but he might be reaching his limits. I think that NE has missed on a number of top picks in recent years, and they need to hit on more of them to continue to have success.

    That said, there may be a new power rising in the AFCE. Buddy Nix is putting together a nice team in Buffalo, so don't underestimate them. The Bills went after Mario Williams and Mark Anderson for two reasons: the Bills went up 21-0 on the Pats when they were able to pressure Brady early in the season finale and the Gnats won the SB because they harassed Brady all game long. I think the reasoning at OBD is that if they can put together a D good enough to stop Brady, they'll be good enough to handle everybody else.

    It's a fair assessment but I wouldn’t count your chickens before they hatch. The Bills have just done the one thing that I feel dooms a team’s long term success by over paying by a mile to get players to come to buffalo. As good as Mario is, he simply isn’t worth what the Bills paid him, and Mark Anderson??? The Bills GM must be on crack, the Pat picked him off the scrap heap as a bust player for nothing because that's what he is, he's a role player and the Bills just paid him like he’s a legit full time player. I know Bills fans are excited right now, and good for them but don’t mistake filling a stadium with building a team. Here’s what you’re going to find out by the end of the year, that the Bills have overpaid so much to acquire and keep a few great players that they have little or no depth. Championship teams aren’t built on the backs of the of top 10 players on the team, they are built on the backs of bottom last 10 players on the team. Sorry to rain on you r parade but you will see this soon.
